VENTURA COUNTY, Calif. - Ventura County Animal Services has received a $27,500 grant investment from Petco Love, a national nonprofit.
As a result of this grant award, Ventura County Animal Services will be able to fund a pilot program that will provide services to pets who have treatable, non-life-threatening medical conditions.
Director of Ventura County Animal Services Jackie Rose said she is honored and thrilled to receive the grant.
"These funds will enhance our Pet Retention Program, allowing us to help even more people keep their pets and avoid the need for them to surrender," Rose said. "Petco Love initially funded our Pet Retention program with a generous grant in 2016 and we are excited that they, again, have shown their firm support for our lifesaving mission!”
Petco Love was founded in 1999, and has invested nearly $300 million to animal services across the country to help with pet adoption and other lifesaving efforts.
