Help Animal Harbor’s Holiday Wishes Come True with $100K from the Petco Foundation
Adopters are invited to share how their pet brightens their life for a chance to help Animal Harbor win up to a $100,000 grant award Pets brighten our lives. The Petco Foundation, in partnership with BOBS from Skechers, is giving us a way to brighten theirs this upcoming holiday season by granting more than $750,000 to qualified animal welfare organizations across the country. Anyone who has adopted a pet from Animal Harbor is invited to submit a story of how their adopted pet brightens their life to help give Animal Harbor the opportunity to receive up to a $100,000 grand prize grant award. Finalist awards will also be given ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, and adopters with winning submissions will receive up to a $1,000 Petco shopping spree to pamper their pets and BOBS from Skechers shoes for themselves. “We’re asking anyone who has adopted a pet from Animal Harbor to help us earn a grant this holiday season from the Petco Foundation by sharing their story,”. “You can help our holiday wishes come true by simply sharing how your pet brightens your life each and every day.” Starting now adopters can submit a story. Stories should highlight how pets brighten their adopter’s lives, in big and small ways, and should celebrate the love of their pet. Submissions must include photos to illustrate the story and can include video as well. Adopters should contact Animal Harbor for the organization’s point of contact, email and phone number to include in their submission. Adopters are also encouraged to visit the Petco Foundation Holiday Wishes webpage for more information, to read stories from previous winners, and to complete their submission. The deadline to submit a story is Monday, September 23, 2019, at noon CST. Winners will be announced during the holiday season. For a full list of prizes and for submission FAQs, visit petcofoundation.org/holidaywishes. Since 2013, nearly $4 million in Holiday Wishes grants have been awarded to help make the holidays brighter for pets in need during the holiday season and year-round.
