Grant of $10,000 will help save more pet lives in Greater Boston
Boston, MA (June 4, 2021) – The Animal Rescue League of Boston (ARL) announced today a $10,000 grant investment from the newly named, Petco Love, to support their lifesaving work for animals in the Greater Boston area.
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 the Animal Rescue League of Boston 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. Last month, we also launched the first of our national tools, Petco Love Lost, to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”
“The Animal Rescue League of Boston is grateful to Petco Love for such a generous grant to assist ARL in helping animals in our communities and the people who care for them,” said Dr. Edward Schettino, ARL’s President and CEO. “This grant will give pet owners in our communities access to pet wellness care when it’s needed most.”
In 2020, ARL’s community programs provided a multitude of services including spay/neuter, vaccinations, and general wellness care to more than 4,000 animals in the communities we serve.
