Newly Named Petco Love Invests in Lifesaving Work of Asheville Humane Society
Grant of $20,000 will help save more animals in Buncombe County
Asheville Humane Society announced today a $20,000 grant investment from the newly named, Petco Love, to support their lifesaving work for animals in Buncombe County.
Petco Love is a nonprofit leading change for pets nationally by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since their founding in 1999 as the Petco Foundation, they’ve empowered organizations with nearly $300 million invested to date in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And, they’ve helped find loving homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations, like ours, nationwide.
“Today Petco Love announces an investment in Asheville Humane Society and hundreds of other organizations 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 one component. This month, we will also launch the first of our national tools to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
“This grant will enable us to provide lifesaving veterinary care to so many pets in our shelter and community, and these animals will have a second chance thanks to the support of Petco Love,” said Jody Evans, Executive Director of Asheville Humane Society.
