The next time you visit Petco I hope you’ll notice something new, and, for me, quite exciting. It’s called Pals Rewards, and it’s our new customer rewards program.
We began work on this program nearly two years ago by surveying our customers and talking with our associates, and the message was clear–you want a rewards program that’s easy, straightforward and rewards you every time you purchase.
So, that, in a nutshell, that is what we’ve created with our new Pals Rewards program. Wherever you shop, and on everything you buy–your purchase qualifies for Continue reading »
Today, we’d like to update the Johnson City community on our local efforts and plans for our Johnson City store, which was flooded last month.
Flood recovery efforts continue in the area, and Petco and the Petco Foundation are supporting those efforts.
After last month’s flood and the related accident at our local store, we said we would donate $25,000 to five local nonprofit agencies to aid in flood relief efforts benefiting humans and animals.
Each of the five agencies – Food Bank of the Southern Tier; Broome County Humane Society; South Central Region American Red Cross; Animal Aid and Relief Foundation; and Flutterbyes Animal Rescue – received $5,000 to help recover and rebuild.
In addition, the Petco Foundation continues to be in touch with local partner groups to understand and fill the need for pet food and supplies.

With major floods occurring twice in just the last five years, we Continue reading »
Editor’s note: Following last month’s flooding in Johnson City, N.Y., and the accident at our store there, Petco – through the Petco Foundation – donated $25,000 to five local nonprofit groups to help both humans and animals recover and rebuild. Here’s an update from Valerie Rosplock, Corporate and Foundation Manager – Food Banks of the Sourthern Tier, of how one group used those donated funds to help the community.
Most of us associate hurricanes and tropical storms with fierce winds that leave trees toppled and buildings destroyed. But when Tropical Storm Lee barreled into the Southern Tier of New York State with massive amounts of rainfall, waters from the nearby Susquehanna River rose to heights never before witnessed by most generations living in this area.
The rains from Tropical Storm Lee left a path of flood destruction in the areas served by the Food Bank of the Southern Tier between Elmira and Binghamton, N.Y. Because our food bank was not affected by the storm, we were able to increase our operations and bring food and supplies directly to those in need while assessing the damages incurred to our affected food pantries and soup kitchens served by the Food Bank. See video and pictures of our efforts.
The support from individuals and community partners was inspiring. And as a member of Continue reading »
