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 nearly $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 the LACACF, nationwide.
“Today Petco Love announces an investment in the Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation and hundreds of other organizations as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessary euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, President of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only one component. This month, we will also launch the first of our national tools to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
The Los Angeles County Animal Care Foundation is a nonprofit organization that supports the County of Los Angeles Department of Animal Care and Control through fundraising for animal lifesaving programs, serving the communities of Los Angeles County.
“This extraordinary gift from Petco Love will enable the Foundation to support the important services provided by the Los Angeles County Department of Animal Care and Control,” said Marcia Mayeda, Department Director. “In these unprecedented times, providing more resources to keep pets and their families together is critical.”
