Help HSWM Win a Grant with Your Adoption Story!

We all know that pets brighten our lives! Now it's time to share your story! The Petco Foundation, in partnership with BOBS from SKECHERS, is giving us a way to brighten theirs this upcoming holiday season by granting more than $750,000 to animal welfare organizations like OURS!

If you’ve adopted a pet from HSWM, you could help us win a lifesaving grant AND you’ll have the chance to win a Petco shopping spree for your pet up to $1,000 and BOBS from Skechers shoes! The Petco Foundation wants to know all the ways, big and small, that your adopted pet brightens your life. Share your story, along with photos and/or video, illustrating how your pet brightens your life each day.

How to Participate:

1. Write your story in 500 words or less. Visit www.petcofoundation.org/holidaywishes to read prior year’s winning entries and get some inspiration.

2. Include one photo of your pet by him/herself, one photo of you or your family with your pet and up to two other photos to illustrate how your pet brightens your life and changes it for the better. Pets must have been adopted from our organization, and they must be living to qualify. You can add video too.
 
3. Include our organization’s contact information so that we can be eligible for a grant award:

Stories can be submitted starting NOW. Submit your story and photos to https://www.petcofoundation.org/holiday-wishes/ by Monday, Sept. 23 at noon CST, but hurry because only the first 10,000 stories are guaranteed to be reviewed.

Winners will be announced during the holiday season. Finalists will receive a Petco shopping spree up to $1,000 and BOBS from Skechers shoes, and the organization they adopted from will receive a grant ranging from $5,000 up to $100,000!
