New Petco Store Will Help Shelter Pets Find Homes May 17-18

Petco is happy to announce the grand opening of its new store in suburban Lake Worth, located at 6185 Jog Road near Lantana Road the weekend of May 17-18.

In an effort to raise awareness for pet adoption, potential new pet parents can connect with local shelter pets at the celebration, which will also include other festivities such as giveaways and a variety of activities to introduce the new store and its team to the community. Guests are also invited to bring their furry friends to join in on the fun.

All pet parents who adopt during the grand opening celebration will receive a “Think Adoption First Care & Savings Booklet” with up to 50 percent off supplies and services for their new pet. To receive the booklet, new pet parents can bring their proof of adoption to any Petco location.

The new Lake Worth Petco store will offer local pet parents everyday necessities and a wide variety of high-quality food options, including natural, organic and raw food selections. The store will also host monthly companion animal events, which are complimentary interactive educational forums for families, such as the annual hit, Reptile Rally. Plus, there will be numerous adoption events throughout the year, which will help local rescues find homes for animals in need.

After a ribbon cutting on Saturday, May 17 at 8:55 a.m., the new store will open at 9 a.m. with the first 100 Pals Rewards customers receiving a free $10 Petco gift card.

On Sunday, May 18, the first 50 Pals Rewards customers will receive a free Petco tote bag.

Pet adoptions from animal rescue partners will continue all weekend.
