As one of the nation's largest funders of animal welfare causes, the Petco Foundation holds a responsibility and obligation to invest funds wisely in organizations that achieve their mission and vision. We partner with organizations to raise awareness of pet adoptions, animal welfare needs, community outreach events and project partnerships to help save the lives of homeless animals across the country.
All requests for support to the Petco Foundation must be submitted through our online grant process
. We have grant cycles which offer grant opportunities for different types of organizations at different times throughout the year. Organizations apply by type of organization rather than type of funding.

Every day, prospective pet parents come to Petco stores looking for adoptable pets to add to their families. As a Petco Foundation Partner, your organization can apply for grants and be eligible to host pet adoptions in one or more Petco stores. Approved organizations are welcome to use Petco stores as a forum for adoption events. If your organization would like to hold adoption events at a Petco store or house animals in their in-store adoption habitats, you must become an approved Adoption Partner.
