Petco Foundation donates $40,000 to Huntsville Animal Services

Published on July 15, 2020

Huntsville Animal Services is honored to be recognized by the Petco Foundation for its lifesaving work with homeless pets in Huntsville. A $40,000 investment was issued in March 2020 to aid the shelter in finding loving homes for Huntsville’s shelter dogs and cats. As a partner with the Petco Foundation, Huntsville Animal Services will be able to provide inhouse spay and neuter for shelter pets in order to get them to their newly adopted homes more quickly.

Officials at Animal Services are extremely grateful for the opportunity the Petco Foundation has offered to the shelter to help reduce the stress for animals by having their surgery done in house instead of being transported to outside locations. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a check celebration alongside our local Petco store will take place at a future date.

“Please visit our local Petco at 6140 University Drive, NW, Huntsville,” Huntsville Animal Services Director Dr. Karen Sheppard said.  “Be sure and thank Petco staff for helping to make lifesaving investments like this possible.”
