4 WAYS TO BE A LIFESAVER

At the Petco Foundation and BOBS From Skechers, we believe everyone can Be A Lifesaver for animals. This summer, join us to help save animal lives by adopting, fostering, volunteering or donating in Petco stores and online.

Foster

If just 2% of the 85 million pet owning households in the U.S. fostered just one pet a year—we could eliminate unnecessary euthanasia tomorrow and save nearly a million pets each year!

Adopt

Every month, the Petco Foundation hosts adoption events nationwide. Find an adoption event near you—and discover love.

Upcoming adoption event weekends:
• August 3 & 4

Volunteer

Volunteer your time at an animal welfare organization in your local community! Search for an animal welfare organization near you.

Donate

Donate at checkout at any Petco store or online to join a community of supporters who are creating a lifesaving nation!

In-Store Only

How BOBS from Skechers helps power this campaign

For every pair of BOBS from Skechers shoes sold at Petco, Skechers stores and other national retail stores and online shopping sites in the United States, twenty-five cents will be donated to the Petco Foundation to help animals across the country. As a company, Skechers, has already donated more than $3 million to save and support shelter pets.
