Petco Foundation awarded a $1,000,000 grant to Palm Valley Animal Society (PVAS) in 2018, and that gift has made all the difference.
There’s no way to overstate the lifesaving value of Petco Foundation’s commitment to PVAS and the communities we serve. It was Petco Foundation that referred Best Friends Animal Society to Edinburg to provide sustainable support to our facilities, and ultimately to partner with us in saving lives in the Rio Grande Valley. Their gift has helped to pay for supplies, equipment, facilities improvements, and additional staff. Everything we’ve achieved in the last 22 months can be traced back to their initial support.
And it’s important to recognize the most important impact of their gift – more animals in loving homes. Every animal is more than just a cat or dog that was adopted; they’re family members contributing to lifelong memories and a richer, more fulfilling quality of life for moms, dads, kids, cousins, grandparents… for everyone.
Petco Foundation’s mission says, “Since 1999, we’ve been guided by one single mission: to create a better world for animals and the people who love and need them. And it all begins with love.”
From the pets, families, staff, volunteers, and supporters of Palm Valley Animal Society:
Thank you, Petco Foundation. Truly.
