Petco Foundation Awards Stray Animal Adoption Program to Continue Lifesaving Work
Cincinnati, OH – Newport, KY based Stray Animal Adoption Program recently received a grant award to support the continuation of their lifesaving work from the Petco Foundation. The Petco Foundation’s grant investment will allow the Stray Animal Adoption Program to spay and neuter over 2,000 at-risk animals in the Tri-State Area, allowing these animals to be rescued and placed into adoptive forever homes.
The Stray Animal Adoption Program is grateful for the continued support of the Petco Foundation, which has significantly contributed towards their record-breaking year of placing 3,532 animals into loving, adoptive families in 2016 YTD.
If you are interested in saving a life by adopting an at-risk pet, please visit the Stray Animal Adoption Program’s weekly adoption events, held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at one of three Petco stores, located at 7769 Five Mile Road; Cincinnati OH 45230 (Saturdays only),; 3459 Valley Highway Plaza Parkway, Fort Wright, KY 41017 (Saturday and Sundays); or 8525 Winton Road, Cincinnati, OH 45231 (Saturdays only).

About the Petco Foundation
At the Petco Foundation, we believe that every animal deserves to live its best life. Since 1999, we’ve invested more than $157 million in lifesaving animal welfare work to make that happen. With our more than 4,000 animal welfare partners, we inspire and empower communities to make a difference by investing in adoption and medical care programs, spay and neuter services, pet cancer research, service and therapy animals, and numerous other lifesaving initiatives. Through our Think Adoption First program, we partner with Petco stores and animal welfare organizations across the country to increase pet adoptions. So far, we’ve helped more than 4.9 million pets find their new loving families, and we’re just getting started. Visit petcofoundation.org to learn more about how you can get involved.

A big thank you to this sweet little girl, Kayla, for donating her own $10 in Camie's name to SAAP. When her mom asked her why she wanted to do it, she said "Mom, it's just money I can make more but how will the animals work to make money for food and stuff? We need to take care of them!"
As a "thanks" to SAAP for rescuing her SAAP dog, Madison had a SAAP birthday party at the dog park and collected donations for all of the fosters. What a fantastic day with all of her friends and family more than willing to help the cause!!
SAAP Nation is proud to have Madison and her family in our extended family and cannot wait to welcome her with open arms when she is old enough to volunteer!!

Recently, Stray Animal Adoption Program (SAAP) has had an influx of Junior Super SAAP'ers, children who are requesting donations to SAAP in lieu of receiving birthday presents or donating to SAAP as their community outreach. SAAP is humbled by the generosity of these children and hope we live up to their selflessness! A very heartfelt SAAP Nation thank you to Jake, Ava, Amy, Alli, Ella, Rachel, Jordan, Sadie, and all of the other Junior Super SAAP'ers out there! We are excited for the next generation of rescuers!
