PetSmart's Inspiration Waggin' tour concluded this week with a stop in New York City on May 22.

The cross-country tour visited places where people could use a pick-me-up from inspiring cats and dogs, including college campuses, hospitals, parks and retirement homes.

The tour brought adoptable pets to cities across the nation and also made stops in Los Angeles, Phoenix, Chicago and Dallas.
