Four in 10 Canadians who have adopted a pet said it was love at first sight, according to Ipsos Research, and PetSmart Charities of Canada is hoping for a lot of love during the first weekend of May.

That’s when the PetSmart Charities of Canada National Adoption Weekend takes place. The event, sponsored by PetSmart, will see more than 100 animal welfare groups come to the retailer’s Canadian stores—all 87 of them—with cats and dogs ready for adoption. Visitors will be encouraged to adopt them on-site.

In the lead up to the adoption weekend, PetSmart is directing potential pet owners to a video on the charity’s YouTube channel that shows the event through the eyes of furry adoptees.

Other sponsors of the adoption weekend include Pro Plan, Purina and Maxx Scoop.
