Multiple animal welfare organizations including Hearts & Bones Animal Rescue, Brooklyn Bridge Animal Welfare Coalition, Meow Parlour Cats, Inc., Korean K9 Rescue, Muddy Paws Rescue, and Anjellicle Cats Rescue were surprised with life changing grants from Petco Love and BOBS from Skechers during a celebration at Petco on Tuesday all thanks to stories submitted by local residents in the Petco Love Stories campaign. These organizations along with twelve additional animal welfare groups in the New York City surrounding area are being honored through December 19th with a total of $292,000 in grants for the market.
Numerous heartwarming stories of how local adopters’ pets changed their lives were selected as Love Stories winners from across the country this year. Now these organizations can earn up to an additional $25,000, but they need the community’s support. From now through Dec. 15, noon CST, the public can vote for their winning stories in the People’s Choice competition at petcolove.org/lovestories.
