Milwaukee – The Wisconsin Humane Society (WHS) announced today a $150,000 grant investment from Petco Love to support their lifesaving work for animals in southeastern Wisconsin.

Petco Love is a nonprofit leading change for pets nationally by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since their founding in 1999 as the Petco Foundation, they’ve empowered organizations with $300 million invested to date in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And they’ve helped find loving homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations, like WHS, nationwide.

“Petco Love announces an investment in Wisconsin Humane Society and hundreds of other organizations as part of our commitment to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier,” said Susanne Kogut, President of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only one component. In April, we also launched the first of our national tools, Petco Love Lost, to empower all animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us.”

“Petco Love’s support will help us ensure that we can continue to address the critical needs of pets and their families in our community,” said Alison Kleibor, Executive Vice President of WHS. “We are deeply grateful for their generous support and partnership.”
