Petco Love Invests in Lifesaving Work of Dog Is My CoPilot

We are very grateful to Petco Love for our partnership and financial support to help make life saving transport flights with Dog Is My CoPilot possible! Their investment will help us continue to fly homeless pets to safety!

Petco Love is a nonprofit changing lives by making communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since our founding in 1999 as the Petco Foundation, we’ve empowered animal welfare organizations by investing nearly $300 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. We’ve helped find loving homes for more than 6.5 million pets in partnership with Petco and organizations nationwide. Today, our love for pets drives us to lead with innovation, creating tools animal lovers need to reunite lost pets, and lead with passion, inspiring and mobilizing communities and our more than 4,000 animal welfare partners to drive lifesaving change alongside us. Is love calling you?

To celebrate this life changing investment, we flew ninety dogs and cats from Dallas-Fort Worth area shelters on June 5, 2021 to adoption partners in Colorado, Utah, Idaho and Wyoming. Each of these ninety animals now have the chance to be adopted into loving homes.
