We're thrilled to support the incredible work you do for animals, and we want to help you spread the news. You may wish to send out a news release (for media), newsletter (for your email or print subscribers), a Facebook post, Tweet or other form of communication to share and celebrate the programs we help you fund—and we're here to help!

Let Petco store associates be your post-adoption support network! As an exclusive offer for approved adoption partners, your organization is eligible to provide a voucher to all adopters enabling them to pick up a New Pet Parent Starter Guide at any Petco store. The guide offers tremendous savings on just about everything an adopter needs and Petco store associates are there to help answer those new pet parent questions! Expand your ability to support new pet parents by adding Petco to your team and get your organization credit for every adoption when a pet parent redeems the postcard/voucher at a store.

Petco Foundation Logo

The Petco Foundation logo is the one to use when the Petco Foundation has supplied a grant for money, product or sponsorship for your event. Please ensure that the Petco Foundation, not the Petco logo, is the logo used when showcasing these sponsorships.
