Subject: Tell your story to help us receive $100,000!

 Hello Broome County Humane Society Supporters,

Exciting news: the Petco Foundation, in partnership with Halo, Purely for Pets, recently announced its Holiday Wishes grant campaign, designed to help the most dedicated animal welfare organizations save more lives – at the holidays, and year round.

So, what does that mean for us? We have a chance to receive $100,000 with your help!

The Petco Foundation believes that love changes everything, and they want to hear how adopting a pet has changed your life for the better.

By submitting your adoption story and nominating us to participate in this year’s campaign, we will have the opportunity to receive up to $100,000 in grants to continue doing what we do best – saving lives.

And get this: If our organization is selected to receive the $100,000 grand prize as a result of your nomination, you will receive a year’s supply of Halo dog or cat food!

If you adopted your pet through us, please consider submitting your story (500 words max) along with photos of your pet. Be sure to talk about how your pet has changed your life, and how we helped you find each other!

The deadline to submit your story and nominate us for a Holiday Wishes grant is Oct. 31, and only the first 10,000 submissions are guaranteed to be considered, so please visit to get started as soon as possible. The winning organizations and their featured pets will be announced in December.

 Also, be sure to include the contact information below on your nomination form to ensure that we can respond to the Petco Foundation if your story is selected as a finalist!
