Newly Named Petco Love Invests in Lifesaving Work of PAWS4you Rescue
Grant of $3,000 will help save more pet lives in Miami-Dade County
Miami, FL (July 28, 2021) – PAWS4you Rescue announced today a $3,000 grant investment from the newly named, Petco Love, to support their lifesaving work for animals in Miami-Dade 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 $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 PAWS4you Rescue 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. In April, we also launched the first of our national tools to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
“We are a small organization with tremendous responsibilities. Petco Love’s grant investment will help us acquire an extremely necessary lifesaving software, ShelterLuv, which would otherwise be outside of our capabilities. We know this will help in our lifesaving efforts for years to come,” Carol Caridad, Executive Director at PAWS4you Rescue.
