Adoptions and Meet & Greets

Saturdays & Sundays from 12 pm – 3 pm & by appointment at the Downers Grove PetSmart (1550 Butterfield Rd., in the Finley Square shopping center).  We also schedule additional meet and greet opportunities at local pet stores (such as Bentley’s Pet Stuff, Kriser’s, or various fundraisers where appropriate), so please check our calendar and Facebook events to find out more information.

We encourage you to visit our cats available for adoption and stop in during adoption hours to meet them. Our adoption counselors will be happy to help you find your special forever friend. We believe that an adoption is a life-changing commitment, and not one we expect you to rush in to. Our adoption counselors will ask you to “sleep on it” and fully commit to adopting one of the cats in our care. We want to find the best possible match for you and for the feline, so don’t feel pressured to “adopt on the spot.”

Please note that while PetSmart Charities graciously sponsors our space in the store, we are the organization who handles adoptions of all of our cats, not any store employees.
