Through June 30, all donations to the Humane Rescue Alliance will be matched up to $20,000 by the Petco Foundation to help save twice as many pet lives.
“Even in these uncertain times, we are continuing to protect animals and support families in the communities we serve, and our work is more important now than ever,” said Lisa LaFontaine, President and CEO of the Humane Rescue Alliance. “In response to the pandemic, we are placing hundreds of animals into loving homes through virtual adoptions and responding to emergencies around the clock. We know that people and animals will need us more than ever in the coming months because of the economic uncertainties caused by the pandemic. Thanks to the Petco Foundation, we can continue our essential work and expand our community support programs to help people keep their pets.”
GIVE TODAY TO DOUBLE YOUR IMPACT
The Petco Foundation matching grant will help HRA maintain its lifesaving work during these challenging times. This grant is part of the Petco Foundation’s Pledge to Save Pet Lives during this COVID-19 crisis by distributing $1M in product and cash donations and putting out a national call to implore animal lovers to take action to help save animal lives. This commitment follows the Petco Foundation’s recent distribution of more than $13M to animal welfare organizations nationwide.
“Animal welfare organizations are facing the business impacts of COVID-19, just like many other businesses during this crisis. But when your business is saving animal lives, the consequences of a business failure are devastating,” said Petco Foundation President, Susanne Kogut. “At the Petco Foundation, we will support our partner’s most critical needs during this time and help mobilize the public to take action to help save animal lives. We hope this matching grant support will help the Humane Rescue Alliance do just that.”
The Petco Foundation is committed to supporting their animal welfare partners’ most critical needs as they face the dual responsibilities of protecting human health and saving animal lives through the COVID-19 crisis to ensure that every pet gets the chance to live their best life.
