PARTNERSHIP RECOGNITION

Tagged Interests: recognition

Your recognition of the Petco Foundation within your community encourages Petco customers to feel confident in making a donation to the Petco

Foundation at the register when they shop. This fundraising in small amounts (on average just under 2 per transaction) helps support the Foundation's grants program in a way that does not diminish your own fundraising efforts. It's incredible that simply by collecting these small contributions we are able to provide more than 30 million in investment support each year
Tagged Interests: grant, recognition, pets, donation, Donation, program, investment, foundation, and fundraising

The Petco Foundation makes these investments (grants) to achieve our mutual objective of saving lives. Our support is generally not restricted to a

specific program but instead supportive of any purpose that achieves that goal. And while you can use the funds for any lifesaving purpose, our preference is for recognition to be associated with pet adoption, transports or foster care.
Tagged Interests: funding, grant, recognition, pets, program, investment, and foundation
