San Diego Fires: Helping Animals in Need
Today there was a call for bird seed, hay for horses, kennels and crates for dogs and cats, and leashes for dogs. Many people who fled their homes did not have time to gather all these supplies, and now find themselves at a makeshift shelter trying to care for their beloved pet. I continue to be impressed by the good nature and generosity of the many vendor partners that we work with everyday.
The PETCO team have been focused on supporting our stores and helping animals in need. So many employees have pitched in to help deliver supplies, and volunteer at public shelters. A few of our stores were short-handed due to employees unable to get to work. Employees from our national support center (corporate office) worked in the stores to help customers and keep things running smoothly. I am proud to work for PETCO, we are a company with a lot of energy and passion. The fires are still quite serious, and far from over, but it helps to know there are so many people with kind hearts and plenty of compassion. At PETCO, that is exactly what we're about.
