Warmer weather…no school…beach days…tropical drinks…the only thing that could make summer even more fun is having a furry friend to share it with!

Thanks to PetSmart Charities, we’re kicking off the summer with a FREE two-day adoption party at PetSmart Southside on Saturday, May 18, and Sunday, May 19. The party will run from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on both days. We’ll be there with tons of adoptable dogs and cats, and our friends from Animal Care & Protective Services will be joining us as well.

All adoptions will be free, but additional fees – such as the city rabies licensing fee – may apply.

Adoptions will be free at both shelter locations, too!

You don’t have to face the final season of your favorite show alone – stop by JHS on Sunday, April 14, and adopt a Season 8 snuggle buddy! All adoptions will be $8 off from 10:00am to 5:00pm.

Whether you’re a supporter of House Bark or House Lannisfur, there’s a pet waiting for you. Visit for a sneak peek at some of our cuddle buddies. When you play the Game of Homes, you always win!
