Petco Foundation Reaches Out to Victims and Shelters Impacted by Tropical Storm Sandy

Many of our fans have inquired about our  Tropical Storm Sandy relief efforts. Here's an update: - We are currently working to get trucks to our Staten Island store located at 2795 Richmond Ave., Staten Island to help victims in this hard-hit region. We'd like to thank Hill's Science Diet and Natural Balance for their help with this effort. - Our Union Square, NYC store, located at 860 Broadway, will be hosting a donation event for people and pets this Saturday and Sunday in partnership with Rock & Rawhide and the Mayor's Alliance of NYC. If you're in the area, please stop by and donate a bag of food to a pet or a family in need. Out-of-state folks can contact the store to "buy" a bag of food to be donated.  Additionally, we will be donating  dog and cat food to be provided to the Red Cross for distribution. We'd like to thank our friends at Wellness Pet Food and Blue Buffalo for helping us with these efforts. And, for folks still without power, we'll have free battery-operated lights on hand for distribution. In addition to these broad-based efforts, we are also working with individual shelters to help with specific food and supply needs: - Abandoned Angels Rescue. - All About Animals NJ. - Alley Cat Allies of Atlantic City. - Anarchy Animal Rescue. - Animal Rescue R Us. - Atlantic County Animal Shelter. - Beacon Animal Rescue. - Burlington County, NJ Office of Emergency Management. - Byram Animal Rescue (BARKS). - Cape-Atlantic Citizens Altering the Strays (C.A.T.S.). - Jersey Animal Coalition. - Liberty Humane Society. - Mount Pleasant Animal Shelter. - North Jersey Guinea Pig and Hamster Rescue. - Save Us Dog Rescue. - Somerset Regional Animal Shelter. - St. Hubert's Animal Welfare Center's North Branch and Madison locations. - The Humane Society of Atlantic County. - The Humane Society of Ocean City. - Woodbridge Animal Shelter. Finally, we are working with Petfinder Foundation, the Mayor's Alliance of NYCDr. Stephanie Janeczko DVM ASPCA and NYCACC to get supplies out to effected areas as soon as possible.

    I would like to give a contribution for your rescue efforts concerning Sandy. I applaud your help and would like to support you. However i need to know if you donate in any capacity to the HSUS, because I will not, under any circumstances support that organization and the companies that do. Please let me know and thank you for all you do.
