Nominate Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center to win up to $100,000 grant

Our holiday wish – to win!

Nominate Norfolk Animal Care and Adoption Center to win up to $100,000 grant
Our holiday wish – to win! 

NORFOLK, VA – Your love made your shelter pet’s life better. How did your pet’s love make your life better? 

Each year, the Petco Foundation offers grants to animal adoption centers like ours through its “Holiday Wishes” grant campaign. Submit a story and photos of the pet you adopted from us that illustrates how your pet has changed your life and NACC could win a grant worth $100,000. You and your pet could win a $1,000 Petco gift card! 

Since 2013, Petco has awarded more than $34 million to animal welfare organizations through its Holiday Wishes campaign. The grand prize is $100,000, and 50 finalist awards range from $5,000 to $50,000.

Nearly 2,200 animals found forever homes through adoption at NACC last year. That’s a lot of love stories to tell.

How to participate:
  1. Write your story in 500 words or less. Quality storytelling and photos help your submission stand out. Need help? Talk to us!  See winning entries from last year. Click here to get started on your entry! 
  2. All entries should include four photos: one of your pet alone, one with you or your family, and two photos that support your story. Your entry may also include video.
  3. Pets must have been adopted from NACC and must be living to qualify.
  4. You’ll need this information to nominate us:
  • Organization Name: Norfolk Animal Care Center (in the dropdown)
  • Email contact for the organization: Jessica Guckert 
  • Organization phone number: 757-441-5505
  • Organization Tax ID number: 54-6001455

Act fast. Entries accepted through Sept. 23, but PetCo only guarantees that the first 10,000 entries will be fully reviewed and considered. Also, ask all your friends who adopted from NACC to enter: the organization with the most entries can win a special $25,000 prize.

And stay tuned! Grants will be announced during the holiday season following the Petco Foundation’s decisions on winners in mid-November.
