November 5, 2021 – Seal Beach, CA – There is no better time to adopt a pet than ahead of the season of giving. 

Helen Sanders CatPAWS (CatPAWS) is proud to partner with PetSmart Charities® to bring adoptable pets to the Seal Beach PetSmart location in support of National Adoption Week, taking place November 8-14, 2021.

As part of the in-store event, CatPAWS invites potential pet owners to attend and meet adoptable pets in their area. People will be given opportunities to spend time with animals in need of loving homes to make connections, learn about their care and also explore the types of products and services they’ll need as pet parents going forward.  To view all available pets for adoption, please visit our adoption page

“Helping our partners find perfect matches for the pets in their care helps us to fulfill our mission to bring people and pets together. The pandemic taught us all just how much pets save us as much as we save them!”

— Heidi Fulcher, Adoption Grants Manager at PetSmart Charities

While pets of all ages will be on-site, this National Adoption Week, PetSmart Charities is encouraging attendees to consider adopting adult or senior pets. Older pets can be overlooked, but often bring special benefits. They’ve been house-trained and are past the kitten/puppy stage involving chewing, frequent accidents, and the need for constant attention and activity. Older pets can still learn new tricks but are calmer and have greater attention spans. Senior pets require less supervision and can bring a laid-back energy to their new families. 


Adoptable kittens and cats will be available at the following times and PetSmart location:

November 8-12 please contact us and make an appointment to visit a kitty of interest.

November 13-14 will be an open adoption event from 12-3pm.

PetSmart 12341 Seal Beach Blvd, Seal Beach, CA 90740
