    The free adoption event has a "homecoming spirit" theme, according to the humane society. 

    "There's no better homecoming than a pet going to new home," said JHS CEO Denise Deisler. "Thanks to help from the public and PetSmart Charities, we'll be able to keep the spirit going with many, many adoptions this weekend."

    The PetSmart store on Southside Boulevard will have more than 200 adoptable dogs, puppies, cats and kittens on Saturday, Sept. 14, and Sunday, Sept. 15, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
