The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the Petco Foundation in support of its efforts to expand and enhance the Shelter’s animal foster care program for Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, and York County. NNTV was on hand as the giant check was presented to the Shelter.
The investment from the Petco Foundation will help the Shelter build a comprehensive network of trained foster volunteers. Volunteers for animals that need extra care, support, and attention before being able to be adopted. This grant is a continued investment from the Petco Foundation as earlier this year they awarded the Shelter a $50,000 grant used towards the Shelter's new adoption bus!
