We are proud to announce that the Petco Foundation has donated $180,000 to the Harris County Animal Shelter. The money will be used to create the Petco Foundation Transfer Center, which will help ensure adoptable animals are disease free before being accepted by transfer groups. The new Petco Foundation Transfer Center has the potential to save an additional 3,100 animals each year.
Thank You to the Petco Foundation
The Groundbreaking and Petco Foundation Check Presentation took place on Leap Day, Monday, February 29th, 2016, at the Harris County Animal Shelter. Helping us break-ground, were some of our adoptable shelter dogs, wearing their very own hardhats. They were joined by Harris County Judge Ed Emmett and officials from Harris County, Susanne Kogut, Executive Director of the Petco Foundation, and local Petco store partners.

None of this would be possible without the Lifesaving Impact Investment Grant from the Petco Foundation. We are honored to have them as a partner and look forward to the great work that we will do together in the coming months. Learn more about the Petco Foundation here.
Thank You to our Volunteers
We could not have had such a successful event without the support of our dedicated Harris County Animal Shelter Volunteers. We will need even more volunteers to help with the work at the Petco Foundation Transfer Center. Learn more about volunteering with the shelter here.
