The new PetSmart store on Atlantic Ave. is celebrating its grand opening on November 12, by giving back to animal welfare organizations.
BROOKLYN, NY (Catholic Online) - The new store in Boerum Hill has teamed up with "A Tail at a Time" and the "Brooklyn Animal Foster Network" to find homes for area pets and raise money for animal welfare. The store will also have a pet adoption center.
Also, on October 29, PetSmart associates will be staging a Halloween haunted Walk and Carnival in Prospect Park where visitors can win prizes for their pets.
Other contests will also be held during the grand opening.
Members of the public who love animals are invited to attend with their pets, and to consider adoption as a fun way to grow their loving families.
