Petco Foundation Invests in Warrior Dog Foundation’s Life-Changing Work Supporting Working Animals
Investment of $25,000 will extend efforts to help pets and people in the United States live their best lives
Dallas, Texas (Oct. 20, 2018) – Warrior Dog Foundation announced that it has been awarded a $25,000 grant from the Petco Foundation to support the mental and physical rehabilitation and care of our country’s retired Warrior K9’s.
The Petco Foundation investment will help transition U.S. retired K9 heroes from an operational environment into the Warrior Dog Foundation’s state-of -the-art kennel facility. It will also provide mental and physical care, exercise and play time with trained handlers, and high quality nutrition and supplements.
“These dogs have saved countless lives and prevented injuries. As a nation, we owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude,” said Warrior Dog Foundation founder and former U.S. Navy SEAL, Mike Ritland. “The Petco Foundation’s support will help make this possible.”
This grant was made possible through the Petco Foundation’s Helping Heroes fundraising campaign, in partnership with Merrick Pet Care. Each October during the campaign, Petco customers are invited to donate online and in Petco stores across the country to support the life-changing work of service, therapy and working animals. To date, the Petco Foundation has invested more than $12 million to support the transformative effect that therapy, service and working animals that have on people across the globe.

‘These dogs have saved countless lives and prevented innumerable horrific injuries. As a nation, we owe them a tremendous debt of gratitude’~Mike Ritland
These dogs have done so much for us, and they don’t deserve to be put down. They deserve rest, respect, and a dignified retirement. To date, we have rehabilitated and rehomed over 170 K9s. When you donate to The Warrior Dog Foundation, you help us give more hero dogs a chance at a peaceful life after service.
