PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–For the second year in a row, in honor of National Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, PetSmart is offering its charitable grooming and
PetsHotel® services to benefit Susan G. Komen®, including its unique Pet

the disease. The offerings include themed bandanas, charms, bows and
even the Pink Ribbon Pet Expressions stencil to support this important
cause throughout the month of October and beyond.
