Mission

Since 1999, we’ve been guided by one single mission: to create a better world for animals and the people who love and need them. The Petco Foundation has invested millions in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research and numerous other lifesaving initiatives—always investing wisely in organizations with the most lifesaving impact for animals. In partnership with animal welfare organizations and 1,500 Petco stores across the country, we help bring pets together with loving families every day.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Since 1999, we’ve been guided by one thing: Creating a better world for pets and the people who love and need them.

The Petco Foundation is a national, nonprofit animal welfare organization working to inspire and lead change for animals in our country. We mobilize people to put their love for animals into action so our collective impact creates a lifesaving nation, where no animal is unnecessarily euthanized. The Petco Foundation evaluates partners through a decision model designed to compare and assess organizations alongside their peers, and we empower those that are most productive and effective, that work with a relentless determination to succeed. To reach our goal of ending the unnecessary euthanasia of companion animals in the United States, we work to create a lifesaving nation by investing in sheltering and adoption organizations that have the most lifesaving impact and organizations that transform shelter dogs into helping heroes. Additionally, we support the advancement of pet cancer research and treatment, and empower innovators who advance change and create new approaches to lifesaving.

The Petco Foundation team mobilizes the employees and customers of more than 1,500 Petco stores, so that together we make a significant lifesaving impact by empowering 4,000 animal welfare organizations to save lives and enabling innovation to transform national platforms to save lives. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $230 million in these efforts and have helped find homes for more than 5.5 million pets.

Since 1999, we've invested more than $230 million in lifesaving animal welfare work across the country. With more than 4,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference in the lives of animals. Through our adoption efforts in more than 1,500 Petco stores nationwide, we've brought more than 5.5 million pets together with loving families. And we're just getting started.
