Pet Supplies Plus & Wag N’ Wash Commit to Helping 15,000 Dogs and Cats Get Adopted This Year

May 03, 2024 // // LIVONIA, Mich. - In recognition of National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day (April 30), Pet Supplies Plus and Wag N’ Wash have launched a nationwide initiative to help 15,000 dogs and cats get adopted in 2024. Year to date, the brands have helped more than 3,214 pets find their forever homes.

There are many reasons as to why an animal enters a shelter – from being surrendered by a previous owner, to being born into a shelter, to being found on the streets and then brought to a shelter. Recognizing the importance and need of finding loving homes for shelter animals, Pet Supplies Plus and Wag N’ Wash will work alongside local rescues and shelters to host monthly adoption events in stores across the nation.

“It’s no secret that pets play a crucial role in each of our families, many making a bigger difference in our lives than we even realize,” said Chris Rowland, Chief Executive Officer of Pet Supplies Plus and Wag N’ Wash. “This year, we will be able to rewrite the narratives of 15,000 dogs and cats as they find loving families to call their own. We invite you to join in our commitment in making a difference, one adoption at a time.”

In addition to helping 15,000 pets get adopted, both Pet Supplies Plus and Wag N’ Wash aims to create more awareness on the significance as well as the positive impact adoptions can have on both pets and their prospective families.

  • Whether a typical pet, emotional support animal, etc., 97% of pet owners consider their pet to be a true member of their family.
  • As of this year, 66% of U.S. households own a pet which is a 56% increase compared to 1988.
  • 4.1 million shelter animals are adopted each year, showing that millions of families have been able to make a difference in an animal’s life by giving them a forever home.
  • More cats are adopted each year compared to dogs, and more cats are admitted to animal shelters.
  • The number of euthanized dogs and cats have largely declined within the last decade, from 2.6 million in 2011 to approximately 920,000 annually, largely due to the increase in pet adoptions.

Part of each brand’s identity and mission, Pet Supplies Plus and Wag N’ Wash foster a culture of compassion for the well-being of all animals. With the brand’s combined store count growing at a rapid rate, the pet retail brands plan to make a significant impact on the lives of thousands of pets through this new initiative.
