Petco Love is a national nonprofit leading change for pets by harnessing the power of love to make pet communities and families closer, stronger and more. healthy. Since their inception in 1999 as the Petco Foundation, they have given organizations $ 300 million invested to date in adoption and other vital 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 across the country.
“Today, Petco Love announces an investment in Beaufort County Animal Shelter and hundreds of other organizations as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pets are 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, Petco Love Lost, to empower all animal lovers to lead vital change alongside us.
Petco Love’s investment in the new dog play area will give the dogs and puppies at the shelter plenty of time off the leash and outdoors for them to play and relax. The playground will give families considering adoption a safe place to visit and interact with a dog or puppy and will give many dogs and puppies a second chance.
“We know firsthand that exercise is important for the dogs and puppies in our shelter so they can work out some energy. We want to use all resources to give our dogs and puppies the best possible adoption chance and this playground is just one of the ways we can do that. We thank Petco Love for making the Beaufort County Animal Services dream a reality a playground, ”said Billy Lassiter, Beaufort County Animal Services and Control Manager.
