Holiday Wishes

This year, we’re participating in the Petco Foundation’s Holiday Wishes Grant Campaign, which distributes grants to shelters based on the top stories about how pets adopted from the organization have changed their adopters’ lives for the better!

In partnership with BOBS from Skechers, the Petco Foundation is granting more than $750,000 this holiday season to qualified animal welfare organizations across the country. The grants distributed will range from $5,000 to $100,000, and adopters with winning submissions will receive up to a $1,000 Petco shopping spree and a prize pack with BOBS from Skechers shoes.

How Sharing Your Story Helps LCHS

We need as many adopters as possible to participate in the contest to maximize our chance of winning. The best stories submitted can win up to $100,000 in grant funding, while winners in the Best Submissions category can win up to $25,000! It will help if as many adopters as possible participate. The pet in question must still be alive for submissions to count toward the contest.
