The mission of the Petco Foundation is to raise the quality of life for pets and people who love and need them. We believe that raising the quality of life for pets requires creating lifesaving communities nationwide. 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.
