The PETCO Foundation is holding a 10-day emergency Round-Up program to raise money to help animals affected by this week’s wildfires in Southern California.

The Round-Up is a nationwide opportunity for PETCO customers to “round up” their purchases to the next highest dollar as a contribution to the Foundation. All donations will go toward the Foundation’s ongoing efforts to aid animals affected by the fires and other incidents.

PETCO and its vendors, along with the PETCO Foundation have provided products valued at more than $200,000 to evacuation centers and animal welfare groups throughout San Diego County.

In addition, PETCO associates have donated thousands of hours of time to help support the effort to meet the needs of its customers, shelter partners and evacuation centers.

PETCO and The PETCO Foundation arranged for and delivered truckloads of food, kennels and other supplies to pets and their pet parents displaced by this week’s wildfires in California.

Semis were dispatched from the company’s Mira Loma, Calif., distribution center to evacuation locations to help ensure the health and well-being of animals through the crisis.

Through the week, PETCO stores remained opened and product shipments were expedited so that customers’ needs could be met.

The emergency drive ends Saturday, November 3rd. To donate online or to locate a store near you, visit www.petco.com.
