Monday, July 5th, 2021

Humane Society of Southern Arizona announced today a $10,000 grant investment from the newly named, Petco Love, to support their lifesaving work for animals in Southern Arizona.

Petco Love is a nonprofit leading change for pets nationally by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since their founding in 1999 as the Petco Foundation, they’ve empowered organizations with $300 million invested to date in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And, they’ve helped find loving homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations, like ours, nationwide.

“Today Petco Love announces an investment in the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and hundreds of other organizations as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, President of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only one component. Last month, we also launched the first of our national tools to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”

“The Petco Love grant investment supports our efforts to provide lifesaving care for the cats, dogs, and other furry friends that come through our doors,” said Dave Eshbaugh, Director of Donor Relations at Humane Society of Southern Arizona.

The Humane Society of Southern Arizona is a nonprofit organization that compassionately serves pets and the people who love them. It is a full-service animal welfare organization, assisting surrounding shelters by taking in hard-to-place pets and those with extreme medical conditions, providing space for pets in overcrowded shelters, and putting in extraordinary efforts to ensure all the pets that come through it’s doors get the care and love they deserve. Since 1944, the Humane Society of Southern Arizona has served over 1 million pets and has become a leader in animal welfare; achieving an average rescue-rate of 90% for the pets in its care.
