KENNEWICK, Wash. (KAPP-KVEW) This Saturday, PetSmart in Kennewick is hosting its first adoption event since February 2020. Organizers expect approximately 100 dogs and cats from seven local adopters and rescues to be available for adoption.
To protect the public and pets, the event will take place in closed rooms. In addition to adorable cats and dogs of all ages, sizes, and breeds, they will also have grocery vendors, including Dog-style gourmet and Kona ice cream. The event also features resources and experts will be on hand to answer any questions you have as you prepare to bring your furry family home.
“The problem adoption agencies have now is they are inundated with pets that were adopted during the COVID-19 quarantine. People haven’t thought the process very well and now they’re giving up pets and leaving them behind, ”said Tammy Falkner, Store Leader at PetSmart.
