McKamey Animal Center has received a $55,000 grant investment from national nonprofit Petco Love during a celebration at the Hixson Petco, 5756 TN-153 Suite 100 in Hixson on Tuesday at 2 p.m. in support of their lifesaving work for animals in southeastern Tennessee.
Officials said, "Petco Love is a national nonprofit leading change for pets by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has invested $330 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts.
And Petco Love helps find loving homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations — like ours — across North America, with 6.5 million pets adopted and counting."
“Our investment in McKamey Animal Center is part of more than $15M in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us. We recently celebrated the one-year launch anniversary of Petco Love Lost, a national lost and found database that uses pet facial recognition technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”
“We are so grateful for this investment in the life-saving work MAC does each and every day,” said Lauren Mann, MAC director of advancement. “Generous grant support from Petco Love will continue to provide funding and resources for homeless, neglected and unwanted animals that MAC cares for.”
