FAAS Seeks Pet Adoption Stories

The Petco Foundation, in partnership with Halo Purely for Pets, recently announced its Holiday Wishes grant campaign, designed to help animal welfare organizations save more lives at the holidays and year-round.

Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter (FAAS) has the opportunity to receive a grant award of $100,000, or a series of finalist awards ranging from $5,000 to $50,000. Anyone who has adopted a pet from FAAS can nominate the organization for a chance to win by submitting their adoption story to the Petco Foundation. Halo Purely for Pets will also award the person who submits the winning nomination for the $100,000 grand prize with a year’s supply of Halo dog or cat food.

Share your FAAS pet’s story (limit 500 words) along with photos of your pet at petco.com/holidaywishes. Be sure to talk about how your pet has changed your life, and how FAAS helped you find each other.

Include the following contact information on your nomination form: Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter Carla Thornton cthornton@alamedaalamedashelter.org at 337-8572. The deadline to submit stories and nominate Friends of the Alameda Animal Shelter for a Holiday Wishes grant is Oct. 31. The winning organizations and their featured pets will be announced in December.
