innovation showdown

Last spring the Petco Foundation and the Jackson Galaxy Foundation teamed up to give animal welfare professionals the opportunity to pitch their most innovative lifesaving idea to seek investments of up to $150,000 from the Petco Foundation. Two exceptional ideas were selected from the nearly 200 applicants to make their best pitch live in front of industry experts and Petco Foundation Gala guests to compete for $150,000 in funding. Eight additional ideas were selected to receive a $5,000 innovation investment from the Petco Foundation to help launch their lifesaving idea.
