With support from PetSmart, associates and donations from loyal pet parents, PetSmart Charities is the leading funder of animal welfare in communities across North America. Since its founding in 1994, PetSmart Charities has granted more than $500M to change-making organizations that help transform the lives of pets and those who love them and has saved more than 10 million pet lives through adoption.
PetSmart Charities works with more than 2,000 shelters to help connect pets with loving homes. Today, more than 1,600 of their stores across the company feature adoption centers where local animal welfare organizations can host adoptions in a safe, clean space to meet adoptable pets (with a free training session for every dog adopted at PetSmart!).
PetSmart Charities provides critical funding to programs to help keep families and their pets together through difficult times by making veterinary care more accessible, helping reduce food insecurity and providing support during times of disaster. It also supports pet needs through partnerships with local change-making organizations and national nonprofits, including Feeding America, Meals on Wheels America and the American Red Cross.
The way companies engage their employees and create impact is more important now than ever before. We face global and societal challenges, and companies have the power to make a difference.
Creating impact and engagement at this scale is incredibly challenging. That's why we felt it was essential to launch the WeHero 100 to highlight the top 100 companies making an impact.
WeHero announces a new company to the WeHero 100 monthly, with the goal of raising awareness and motivating more companies to focus on impact.
Join us in celebrating these change makers!
