All HeARTs Speak programs are made possible by the generous support of the Petco Foundation.

The Petco Foundation has served as a voice for companion animals across the country since 1999, investing more than $200 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen. The organization is guided by a single mission: to create a better world for animals and the people who love and need them. Today, with more than 4,000 animal-welfare partners, they inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Through adoption efforts in more than 1,500 Petco stores nationwide, they’ve brought more than 5.5 million pets together with loving families. And they’re just getting started!
