All for Love

The love of pets changes everything. Love is why at the Petco Foundation, we bring pets in need together with loving people—with 6 million pets adopted so far. By supporting pet adoption and our lifesaving efforts, you can put your love into action, too. Together, let’s create a better world for pets.



Show your love for animals—and help every pet find the loving home they deserve.

Help Make Holidays Bright For Shelter Pets

This holiday season, you can brighten the lives of pets in need by giving a gift that gives back. By donating at Petco, or online, you are helping animal welfare organizations in your local community and across the nation save lives.

Holiday Wishes Grant Campaign

More than 15,000 adopters since 2012 have shared the big and small ways that their pet brightens their life to help make $4.2 million in Holiday Wishes grant awards come true for the animal welfare organization across the country that work hard year-round to make these adoption matches possible. This holiday season, we’ll celebrate the best stories and award nearly $900,000 in grant awards to animal welfare organizations at special celebrations at Petco locations coast to coast. Through December 20, you’ll even have the chance to vote for your favorite story to help them receive even more lifesaving funds.
