Henrico Humane Society would like to recognize the Petco Foundation as a Diamond level sponsor of Pet Expo, which was held on April 9. Petco has sponsored the event since 2009, proving that they’re a very community-focused company.
Since 1999, the Petco Foundation has invested more than $157 million in lifesaving animal welfare work. Through their Think Adoption First program, the Foundation partners with Petco stores and over 4,000 animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, they’ve helped more than 4.9 million pets find new loving homes.
Henrico Humane Society has been a Petco animal welfare partner since the store opened in 2007. Not only do we hold adoption stand there for dogs and cats every Saturday, but we also have two condos for cats to live at Petco throughout the week where they are well cared for by volunteers. Just recently, a long time HHS volunteer, Jan Mitchell, was named the new Store Manager of the same Short Pump Petco!
We can’t thank Petco and the Petco Foundation enough for their continued support of Henrico Humane Society’s rescue efforts!
