PETCO Foundation's Round Up/Spay Today Campaign Raises Funds for Local Groups
The upcoming Round Up/Spay Today 2006 campaign, which begins Sunday, July 23rd, encourages PETCO customers to "round-up" their purchases to the next highest dollar. All proceeds will benefit local spay/neuter focused animal welfare organizations that help prevent the births of unwanted puppies and kittens and save the lives of homeless animals in the communities that PETCO shares. Recipients are chosen by each of PETCO's more than 800 stores nationwide.
In addition, 10 percent of all funds raised will be donated to Spay USA to support their spay/neuter programs and hotline. Spay USA is a nationwide network and referral service for affordable spay/neuter services. They have over 1,000 sterilization programs and clinics with over 7,000 veterinarians nationwide.
