Exciting news! The Petco Foundation, in partnership with Petco, will be granting Holiday Wishes in the form of more than $750,000 in grant awards to qualified animal welfare organizations. This contest is designed to help the animal welfare organizations save more lives during the holidays and year round.
So, what does that mean for us? We have a chance to win $100,000, but we need your help!
What do we need from you? It’s simple: share your story of love! The Petco Foundation wants to know how the love of your adopted pet has changed your life for the better. Because if you’ve ever shared your life with a pet, you know: love changes everything. It changes your mornings. It changes your routine. It changes your perspective. Tell the Petco Foundation how your pet brings more joy to your life each day, and how their love changed your life, big or small, and made it better. That’s why the Petco Foundation and this year’s Holiday Wishes campaign are All for Love.
By submitting your adoption story and giving us the opportunity to participate in this year’s campaign, we have the chance to receive up to $100,000 in grants to continue doing what we do best—saving lives. And get this: If our organization is selected to receive the $100,000 grand prize as a result of your story submission, you will receive a $1,000 Petco gift card! If you adopted your pet through us, please consider submitting your story (500 words max) along with photos and/or video of your pet. Be sure to talk about how your pet has changed your life and how we helped you find each other! The deadline to submit your story and nominate us for a Holiday Wishes grant is October 15, 2016, at 11:59 p.m. CST. Only the first 10,000 submissions are guaranteed to be considered, so please visit holidaywishes.fluidreview.com to get started as soon as possible. The winning organizations and their featured pets will be announced in December. Also, be sure to include the contact information below on your submission form to ensure that we can respond to the Petco Foundation if your story is selected as a finalist!
