PERMANENT PET ADOPTION CENTER OPENS AT CLEARWATER PETsMART

 PERMANENT PET ADOPTION CENTER OPENS AT CLEARWATER PETsMART
 CLEARWATER, Fla., Oct. 8 /PRNewswire/ -- PETsMART, the nation's leading retailer of pet food, supplies and services, has announced the grand opening of its newest Luv A Pet permanent pet adoption center in Clearwater at 26277 U.S. Highway 19 North on Saturday, Oct. 10.
 Luv A Pet adoption centers allow humane organizations to offer animals for adoption inside PETsMART stores. Specially designed Luv A Pet adoption centers enable humane organizations to promote adoptions on a regular basis, generally every weekend.
 PETsMART is adding Luv A Pet adoption centers to all its stores throughout the country. The first Luv A Pet adoption center opened in Mesa, Ariz., earlier this year and has proven to be a tremendous success with more than 150 pets placed in new homes in its first 90 days.
 The Clearwater Luv A Pet permanent adoption center is a joint effort between PETsMART and the SPCA of West Pasco County Inc. Homeless pets from the SPCA will be offered for adoption each Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The new permanent adoption center, which will accommodate up to 20 animals at a time, will be staffed by SPCA volunteers.
 The unique philosophy of PETsMART advocates the adoption of homeless animals from shelters and other facilities. Therefore, PETsMART does not sell dogs, cats, puppies or kittens at any of its 50 stores.
 "PETsMART strives to be an advocate for shelters and other facilities that support the adoption of homeless pets," explained Cozette Phifer, corporate spokesperson. "The new permanent adoption centers are an extension of our corporate philosophy, which encourages our customers to become a part of the overpopulation solution by adopting homeless pets.
 "One of the key benefits of the Luv A Pet permanent adoption centers is that they make homeless pets more accessible to the public, thereby increasing the likelihood that they will be adopted by loving families," Phifer said.
 A distinguishing characteristic among PETsMART stores is their dedication to customer service and satisfaction. PETsMART achieves this goal through rigorous training of its store associates. Every employee participates in a series of specialized training programs that cover each area of the industry from dogs and cats to birds, fish, equine sciences and more.
 PETsMART currently operates stores in Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Illinois, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah. A privately held corporation, PETsMART corporate headquarters are located at 10000 N. 31st Ave., Suite C-300, Phoenix, AZ 85051.
