Haywood Animal Shelter receives Petco grant
Haywood County Animal Shelter is set to receive a $12,500 grant investment from national nonprofit Petco Love in support of their lifesaving work for animals in Haywood County.
Petco Love is a national nonprofit leading change for pets by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger and healthier. Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has invested $350 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And Petco Love helps find loving homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations — like Haywood County Animal Shelter — across North America, with 6.7 million pets adopted and counting.
“Our investment in Haywood County Animal Shelter is part of more than $15M in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us. We recently launched Petco Love Lost , a national lost and found database that uses pet image technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”
“This investment by Petco Love to Haywood County Animal Services will help us to continue the mission to the community and their animals of providing high quality services and care,” stated Howard Martin, Director of Animal Services as he announced the grant.
