When & Where
Petfinder and Petco Foundation
Petfinder is the oldest, largest and most successful searchable database of homeless pets on the Web. It provides more than 14,000 animal adoption groups with free home pages and technical support to spotlight their adoptable pets online as well as providing networking platforms, discounts and gifts, and education for the groups. Visitors to the site, from the comfort of their homes, enter search criteria to see animals available for adoption ranked by distance from their Zip codes. The site has facilitated over 20 million adoptions since it was created in 1996.
The mission of the Petco Foundation is to raise the quality of life for pets and people who love and need them. Since its inception in February of 1999, over $75 million has been raised through a combination of fundraisers in Petco’s over 1000 stores and donations through the Petco Foundation. These funds were used to support more than 7,000 local animal welfare groups across the U.S. The Petco Foundation endeavors to create responsible animal guardians, reduce the number of adoptable animals euthanized, rescue animals in crisis and assist in modifying behavioral issues to make companion animals more adoptable.
