More Adoption Partners

We are pleased to announce additional partnerships with area PetSmart retail stores to aid with animal adoptions.

In the past year, AWS has deepened their relationship with PetSmart retail locations, and now has 15 off-site adoption centers located in Biddeford and Brunswick, Maine, Concord, Epping, Manchester, Nashua, South Nashua, Rochester, Seabrook and Salem, New Hampshire, and Cambridge, Chelmsford, Everett, Saugus and Woburn, Massachusetts. These stores offer spacious and dedicated areas to house small animals, with all necessary supplies for purchase, and a large customer base interested in providing homes to animals.

“This partnership has transformed the way we care for small animals. In the past, we could house 5 or 10 rabbits at most in our adoption center in West Kennebunk and they could take months to be adopted. Today, spread out among our PetSmart partner locations, we can house 100 rabbits, not to mention the countless mice, gerbils, hamsters, and birds and they find homes so quickly! The staff at each of the PetSmart locations are incredibly dedicated to our animals’ care and are invested in finding them loving homes. We look forward to growing our partnership even more as we continue to be a resource for small pet adoptions in Northern New England,” Jenna Danks, Remote Adoption Coordinator.

On February 16th through the 18th, the Salem, NH PetSmart store will host a National Adoption Weekend. That weekend only, visitors to the Salem store can enter a drawing for prizes, including gift cards for small animal goodies and a gift basket filled with small animal supplies. Visitors will also have a chance to meet and adopt small animals of all kinds.
