National Nonprofit Petco Love Invests in the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake to Save and Improve the Lives of Pets in Henderson and Kaufman Counties
Tool, Texas (June 2, 2022) – The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake has received a $60,000 grant investment from national nonprofit Petco Love in support of their lifesaving work for animals in Henderson and Kaufman counties.
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 the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake 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.” “Petco Love’s generous grant will support medical and labor costs, increased costs to transport and care for our animals. We intake an average of 3,200 animals per year. Our medical costs continue to rise as we adopt and transfer out more animals every year, so we are incredibly grateful to Petco Love for supporting our shelter with this lifesaving investment,” said Monika Allen, Director of the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake.The Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake is a nonprofit organization, that provides shelter, food, medical treatment, love, and care to every animal who is brought to our facility serving Kaufman County, Henderson County, and its surrounding municipalities.
