The Petco Foundation has teamed up with award-winning artist and creator of the MUTTS comic strip, Patrick McDonnell, and BOBS from Skechers, to celebrate animal welfare work nationwide.
As part of its annual “Love Changes Everything” campaign, the Petco Foundation invites pet lovers to help celebrate those who work hard daily to save animal lives by sending them a #sheltervalentine on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter.
From Feb. 1-14, adopters who post photos and messages of appreciation with #sheltervalentine, will be entered into a drawing for a daily prize pack including items from Petco, MUTTS, and BOBS from Skechers, as well as a $1,000 grant for their adoption organization as shown in the short video below:
One grand prize winner will be drawn to win a gift pack and a $10,000 grant for the shelter where they adopted their pet.d
Throughout the week leading up to Valentine’s Day, the Petco Foundation team, along with their partners at BOBS from Skechers, will visit some organizations in person with a special #sheltervalentine delivery and on Feb. 14, they will send a virtual valentine to shelters and animal welfare organizations across the country with all of these messages.
The Petco Foundation will also put their Love in Action by distributing more than $10M in grant investments to animal welfare organizations across the country to support their lifesaving work.
“Valentine’s Day is a great time to remind us that love truly does change everything for people and pets, and our partners at MUTTS and BOBS from Skechers agree,” said Susanne Kogut, president of the Petco Foundation. “So we’re sending love to these organizations to support them in their critical lifesaving work and thank them for their dedication to saving lives.”
In addition to sending the shelter where they adopted their pet a #sheltervalentine on social media, pet lovers can support the “Love Changes Everything” campaign from Feb. 29 to March 29 by making a donation in any Petco, Unleashed by Petco or online at Petcofoundation.org/love. Anyone who makes an in-store donation of $10 or more will receive a limited-edition tote bag featuring MUTTS artwork that highlights the love adopted pets bring to our lives.
