It's Petco Foundation's annual Holiday Wishes grant campaign time. Help us win up to $100,000 in lifesaving grant funds by sharing with Petco how your Ayla's Acres adopted pet brightens your life!

Stories are due by Monday, September 23rd at Noon. Petco only accepts the first 10,000 submissions, so make sure to submit your story as soon as possible!

Entry is simple:


1. Write a brief story, 500 words or less, sharing how your adopted pet changes your life (or your family's life) for the better each and every day!  (Visit petcofoundation.org/holidaywishes to read prior year’s winning entries and get some inspiration!) 

2. Upload at least four photos to support your story: one photo of your pet by him/herself, one photo of you or your family with your pet and two additional photos. You can add video too to help illustrate the bond between you and your pet.
