Share your adoption story, help make PACC’s Holiday Wishes come true

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Have you adopted a 'fur'ever friend from the Pima Animal Care Center and want to share your story?  You can do just that and help PACC win a Holiday Wishes Grant, worth up to $100,000, from the Petco Foundation. 

“PACC pets touch the lives of their families in profound ways, and this is our community’s chance to share their stories and help even more pets in need at our shelter,” said Karen Hollish, PACC director of development and marketing.  

PACC  adopters are encouraged to share their story on how their PACC pet has made a positive impact on their life.  According to the news release all submissions must include a minimum of three photos, one of the pet, one of the pet with its new family and an additional photo or video to help illustrate the story.  

In addition to photos, to verify the adoption from PACC, adopters should list Karen Hollish, karen.hollish@pima.gov, as the contact person on their submission form.

Deadline for story submission is Saturday, Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m. (CST), only one entry per household and the pet must still live with the adopter.  

For more information on the contest go online to www.petcofoundation.org/holidaywishes.  

The winning Holiday Wishes entries will be announced in November, by the Petco Foundation. 

Since 2013, the Petco Foundation, in partnership with Petco, has awarded more than $2.5 million in Holiday Wishes grants to help animal welfare organizations fund their lifesaving efforts. This year, the campaign plans to award $750,000 in grants and, with the community’s help, PACC can be one of them.
