THANK YOU to Petco Foundation for helping us help the animals! Yavapai Humane Society today announced it has been awarded a $20,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support its work in sheltering and adopting animals in need, providing vaccinations and medical treatment to homeless pets, and spaying and neutering to prevent pet overpopulation.
Yavapai Humane Society is a nonprofit organization serving Yavapai County that promotes and protects the health, safety, and welfare of all animals. Since 1972, Yavapai Humane Society has cared for homeless cats and dogs, and adopts out more than 3,200 pets annually.
The Petco Foundation grant will help Yavapai Humane Society prepare 50 homeless pets for adoption, which costs the organization, on average, $412 per animal. The Petco Foundation has invested more than $175 million since 1999 in lifesaving animal welfare organizations in communities across the country.
