The Petco Foundation

Since 1999, we’ve invested millions in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research and numerous other lifesaving initiatives—always investing wisely in organizations with the most lifesaving impact. In partnership with animal welfare organizations and 1,500 Petco stores across the country, we help bring pets together with loving families every day. 

About our investments 

As one of the nation's largest funders of animal welfare causes, we hold a responsibility and obligation to invest funds wisely in organizations that achieve their mission and vision. Therefore, success, accountability, and prudent use of funds are important to our grant analysis and follow-up process. We have an expectation that animal welfare organizations continually endeavor to achieve a high standard of doing more, and are determined to save as many lives as possible with our investment.

Helping Heroes: Service, Therapy, & Working Animal Organizations

Each October in partnership with Natural Balance, we invite animal lovers to support the heroic and lifesaving work of service and therapy animals. Funds raised during this campaign support service and therapy animal organizations across the country.
