Why did PetSmart stop selling cats? PetSmart made the important decision to not sell cats and dogs in its stores to help address the pet overpopulation problem. Instead, it made the humane decision to donate space inside its stores for local shelters to display companion animals that were up for adoption.
Where do cats from PetSmart come from? All of the cats at Petco/Petsmart are from an animal shelter/animal rescue group. These stores don’t sell cats or kittens. Instead, they team up with local shelters to provide a space where kitties who need homes can meet a variety of different people who are (likely) already animal lovers!
How do I give my cat to PetSmart? PetSmart does not take cats, though you are allowed to bring your cat into the store if you are shopping. If you attempt to surrender a cat at a PetSmart location, you will be turned away and given other options.
