Thanks to compassionate donors and our pet-loving sponsors for making these grants possible! Read the rules and how to apply at


Join us in welcoming the Petco Foundation

There’s a new sponsor on the Adopt-a-Pet.com block. In today’s world, technology is crucial to getting homeless pets out of shelters and into loving homes. That fact is clear from the millions of pet adopters who search on Adopt-a-Pet.com each month and from the inspiring feedback we receive from shelter and rescue partners like you. Recognizing the power of technology to save shelter pets, the Petco Foundation www.petcofoundation.org is joining the team and has decided to support the Adopt-a-Pet.com mission with a grant to focus on advancing the tools and resources we provide our shelter and rescue network. What does this mean? To sum it up, it means that we’ll be able to do even more to support your mission to save pets. We’ll be building new technologies, adding new features and functionality to what you already love, and growing our reach in ways that will help your pets be seen by even more potential adopters. This is BIG news and we are beyond excited to share it with you!
