Petco Love to Grant $50,000 to Everett Animal Shelter

April 10, 2024

Everett Government

Pending Everett City Council approval tonight, Petco Love will award the Everett Animal Shelter a $50,000 grant for their lifesaving work for animals in Snohomish County.

Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has invested over $350 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. Petco Love also helps find loving homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations — like the Everett Animal Shelter — across North America, with 6.7 million pets adopted and counting.

The donation will go into the Fund for the Animals (Fund 151), which is a cumulative reserve fund that benefits the animals. The generous donation to the Fund for the Animals will help pay for veterinary care and other
services to directly help animals at the Everett Animal Shelter.

All gifts to the city in excess of $10,000 must be approved by city council. Pursuant to EMC 2.105.020(B), the Mayor is authorized to conditionally accept this gift, and council shall, by motion, approve or reject the mayor’s acceptance. The City Council is due to vote on it tonight.
