Petco Love was founded in 1999, formalizing Petco's longstanding commitment to animal welfare. Over the years, we've served as a leader and valued partner in animal welfare, always focusing on one thing: Creating a better world for animals and the people who love and need them. In April 2021, we took the next step in our lifesaving mission and adopted a new name, Petco Love. We will continue to lead the way every day to harness the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier--and create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized.
Petco Love (formerly Petco Foundation) invests in organizations that have the most impact. Through a decision model designed to evaluate and assess organizations alongside their peers, we empower those that are most productive and effective, and work with a relentless determination to succeed.
By donating in Petco store and on petco.com, adopting, volunteering and fostering your support makes it possible for us to celebrate 20 years of saving animal lives. Thank you for sharing our passion for animals and believing that together we can, and will, create a lifesaving nation.
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.
