In order to save more lives, the Animal Rescue League (ARL) has partnered with Petco, PetSmart, and other businesses so that we can reach even more people interested in adopting.  These locations allow us to bring our cats closer to adopters throughout the region.

offsiteadoptOffsite adoption sites are permanent and cats normally stay at the stores until they are adopted. Cats are available for adoption 7 days a week at each store.  ARL Adoption Counselors are on hand at the Petcos during specific hours every day.  They are there to assist potential adopters in finding the right cat for their home. Petco employees are not involved in the adoption process and all questions should be directed to the ARL. Our cats located at PetSmart are available any time during store hours and the PetSmart employees handle any adoptions.

Volunteers, counselors, and store employees care for the cats every day. These off-site locations allow us to reach even more people and reduce overcrowding at the shelter.

Adoption fees vary depending on the time of year and adoption specials generally do not apply at our offsite locations.

If you have any questions or would like your business to be considered as an additional offsite location, please contact the Offsite Adoptions Manager at 412-345-7300 x233.
