THOMASVILLE – Petco Love has invested a $ 15,000 grant to support the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society’s rescue work for animals locally and in southwest Georgia.
“Today, Petco Love announces an investment in the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society and hundreds of other organizations as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pets are unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, President of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only one component. This month we’ll also be launching the first of our national tools to empower all animal lovers to drive vital change alongside us. “
“Our shelter is helping more animals by offering a greater variety of services and programs than ever before. In the past six months alone, we have placed over 670 animals in loving homes forever. We implement best practices in all areas of our shelter operations, and this financial award from Petco Love will help us immensely in our rescue efforts, ”said Chandler Giddes, Executive Director of The Humane Society.
The Humane Society is a non-profit organization that provides animal welfare services to abandoned, homeless, lost and abused pets in Thomas County and elsewhere in Southwest Georgia.
“We provide animal control services to Thomas County and its seven municipalities,” Giddes said. “Since 1970, the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society has helped save the lives of tens of thousands of animals through adoption and rescue.”
