Our pets play a variety of roles in our lives. They're our confidants, our co-pilots; they’re family. And for thousands of individuals in the U.S., they're also heroes.
Service and therapy animals offer their handlers the chance to live fuller lives, to achieve lifelong goals, embark on adventures, overcome illnesses, and safeguard military bases around the world. Studies have shown that interaction with animals provides a multitude of positive and healthy benefits for people, and can even serve as a source of solace and relief for those who suffer from physical or emotional pain.
The Petco Foundation and Natural Balance Pet Foods thank you for your lifesaving donations. The 2014 campaign was a huge success and your support helped hundreds of therapy and service animal organizations.
We hope you will continue to join us in our ongoing efforts to help these heroes perform life changing work.
