The PETCO Foundation’s annual “Spring a Pet” campaign is underway, running from March 8 to April 8. PETCO locations nationwide will collect donations that will go directly to animal shelters and animal welfare organizations.

“Donations given at each store remain in the local community,” said Paul Jolly, PETCO Foundation vice president and director. “Each PETCO store selects an animal welfare group that celebrates the human-animal bond, and then collects donations on that organization’s behalf.”

PETCO customers can make a donation by purchasing Spring a Pet donation cards in the amount of $1, $5, $10 or $20. Customers who donate $20 or more will receive a decorative candle.

Last year, the Spring a Pet campaign raised more than $1.7 million for animal shelters. For more information about the Spring a Pet effort, visit www.petco.com.

MY RESCUE GROUP HOLDS ADOPTION EVENTS AT PETCO EVERY WEEKEND, AND THEY HAVE BEEN VERY GOOD TO US. WE ARE ONE OF THE LOCAL SHELTERS THAT WOULD RECEIVE THIS MONEY. I ENCOURAGE ANYONE WHO SHOPS AT PETCO TO PLEASE DONATE TO THIS WORTHY CAUSE.
