(Press Release) BELLEVUE, WA — Pet Partners, the nation’s leading organization registering therapy animals for animal-assisted interventions, announces the receipt of a $50,000 grant from the Petco Foundation. This grant will be used toward funding the therapy animal program, but will also support promotion of a new “from shelter pet to therapy pet” campaign.

“The public awareness campaign set to launch later this year, will promote the idea of future therapy animals sitting right under our noses in local shelters and encourage people to consider adopting an animal and sharing that special animal with the community,” said Annie Peters, CEO of Pet Partners. “We are excited about the opportunity to increase support of the important work of therapy animals and truly thank the Petco Foundation for helping to make that possible.”

The funds from the Petco Foundation were raised during their Helping Heroes fundraising campaign held online and in Petco stores. This campaign, held each October in partnership with Natural Balance, recognizes and celebrates the impact that service, therapy and working animals have on the lives of millions of people.

“Saving a shelter pet through adoption and transforming them into helping hero highlights the true potential of these animals. We are thrilled to invest in Pet Partners’ efforts to promote the incredible capabilities of shelter pets through this new initiative and hope that it will inspire more animal adoptions” said Susanne Kogut, executive director, Petco Foundation.
