We would like to take an opportunity to thank the Petco Foundation for their continued support of homeless animals. Their grant program has allowed FOR to save more sick, neglected, and deprived animals than we ever could without their help! Every year, our grant writers submit an application, along with examples of successful rescue stories, to the Petco Foundation. If we are lucky enough to receive a grant, it goes directly into funds that are specifically appropriated for the rescue of animals that are categorized as ‘unadoptable’. This is what makes the Petco Foundation and FOR a great team!
About Petco and the Petco Foundation
Petco is a leading pet specialty retailer that focuses on nurturing the powerful relationship between people and pets. We do this by providing the products, services, advice and experiences that keep pets physically fit, mentally alert, socially engaged and emotionally happy. Everything we do is guided by our vision for Healthier Pets. Happier People. Better World. We operate more than 1,300 Petco locations across the U.S., Mexico and Puerto Rico, including more than 100 Unleashed by Petco locations, a smaller format neighborhood shop; nine Pooch Hotel destinations for pet daycare, boarding and spa services; and petco.com. The Petco Foundation, an independent nonprofit organization, has raised more than $125 million since it was created in 1999 to help promote and improve the welfare of companion animals. In conjunction with the Foundation, we work with and support thousands of local animal welfare groups across the country and, through in-store adoption events, help find homes for more than 350,000 animals every year.
