    Pima Animal Care Center invites adopters to submit their pet’s adoption story to the 2017 Holiday Wishes Grant Campaign to help PACC win a lifesaving grant worth up to $100,000. Adopters can win gift cards from Petco of up to $1,000 to spoil their furry friend this holiday season.

    Since 2013, the Petco Foundation, in partnership with Petco, has awarded more than $2.5 million in Holiday Wishes grants to help animal welfare organizations fund their lifesaving efforts. This year, the campaign plans to award $750,000 in grants and, with the community’s help, PACC can be one of them. 

    Holiday Wishes“PACC pets touch the lives of their families in profound ways, and this is our community’s chance to share their stories and help even more pets in need at our shelter,” said Karen Hollish, PACC director of development and marketing.  

    Pima Animal Care Center invites adopters to share their story on how their PACC pet has made a positive impact in their life. All submissions must include a minimum of three photos – one of the pet, one of the pet with its family, and an additional image – or video to help illustrate the story. Additionally, to verify the adoption from PACC, adopters should list Karen Hollish,, as the contact person on their submission form.

    Adopters have until Sept. 30 at 11:59 p.m. CST to submit their pet’s stories to the Holiday Wishes campaign. Only one entry per household and the pet must still live with the adopter.  For additional rules, to read the stories from previous winners, and to begin the submission process, visit

    The Petco Foundation will announce the winning Holiday Wishes entries in November.
