Petco Love is a national nonprofit leading change for pets by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has invested $330 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And Petco Love helps find loving homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations — like ours — across North America, with 6.5 million pets adopted and counting.
Local Investments Empower Animal Lovers
“Our investment in Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center is part of more than $15M in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessary euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us. We recently celebrated the one-year launch anniversary of Petco Love Lost, a national lost and found database that uses pet facial recognition technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”
“The exceptional investment from our Petco Love partner will help provide crucial funding to help support and promote our ever-growing sterilization program for animals within our care and communities. Not only does this help save a life, but it can assist with future dilemmas of unplanned litters – which often result in shelter overpopulation.,” said Tammy Miller, Shelter Manager of Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center.
Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center is a nonprofit organization that provides exemplary care for impounded and unwanted animals through redemption, adoption, and public education serving Cedar Hill, DeSoto, and Duncanville.

It is the great support of our local communities, shelter partnerships, and organizations that help us achieve our lifesaving efforts for animals in need.
