The Petco Foundation recently awarded over a quarter of a million dollars to 52 different animal welfare organizations as part of its Holiday Wishes campaign.
As part of the holiday-themed campaign, stories were solicited from thousands of individuals about how their adopted pets changed their lives. Animal welfare organizations selected by the winning authors are eligible to receive up to $100,000 in funding from the Petco Foundation.
The grants, ranging from $5,000 to $100,000, were issued throughout the month up to the final award on December 20. The authors of the winning stories each received a $1,000 Petco gift card.
