At the Petco Foundation, we believe that every animal deserves to live its best life. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $170 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen.  With our more than 4,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter programs, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Through our Think Adoption First program, we partner with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, we’ve helped more than 5 million pets find their new loving families, and we’re just getting started. Visit to learn more about how you can get involved. 

Helping Heroes: 

Each year Petco Foundation teams up with Natural Balance for “Helping Heroes” an in-store fundraising campaign during the month of October. The donations are then disbursed to support working dogs and the people who depend upon them. Warriors' Best Friend is proud to have partnered with the Petco Foundation since 2015!
