How to Find the Adoption Center

PALS Animal Life Savers is located inside PetSmart at 10 Traders Way, Salem, MA. Although we are inside PetSmart, our cats are not traditional “pet store” animals. Our adoptable cats have been rescued, surrendered or born into foster care. PetSmart generously provides us with space for our Adoption Center and does not benefit financially from our adoption fees. Our cats and kittens can be seen sleeping and playing in their cages during normal PetSmart store hours, and you can meet them in person during Adoption Hours on Saturdays and Sundays.
