Help Tulsa SPCA’s Holiday Wishes Come True with $100K from the Petco Foundation
Adopters are invited to share how their pet brightens their life for a chance to help Tulsa SPCA win up to a $100,000 grant award
Pets brighten our lives. The Petco Foundation, in partnership with BOBS from Skechers, is giving us a way to brighten theirs this upcoming holiday season by granting more than $750,000 to qualified animal welfare organizations across the country. Anyone who has adopted a pet from Tulsa SPCA is invited to submit a story of how their adopted pet brightens their life to help give Tulsa SPCA the opportunity to receive up to a $100,000 grand prize grant award. Finalist awards will also be given ranging from $5,000 to $50,000, and adopters with winning submissions will receive up to a $1,000 Petco shopping spree to pamper their pets and BOBS from Skechers shoes for themselves.
“We’re asking anyone who has adopted a pet from Tulsa SPCA to help us earn a grant this holiday season from the Petco Foundation by sharing their story,” said Executive Director Mindy Tiner. “You can help our holiday wishes come true by sharing how your pet brightens your life each and every day.”
Using the online form at petcofoundation.org/holidaywishes, adopters can submit a story. Stories should highlight how pets brighten their adopter’s lives, in big and small ways, and should celebrate the love of their pet. Submissions must include photos to illustrate the story and can include video as well. Adopters should contact Tulsa SPCA for the organization’s point of contact, email and phone number to include in their submission. Adopters are also encouraged to visit the Petco Foundation Holiday Wishes webpage for more information, to read stories from previous winners, and to complete their submission.
The deadline to submit a story is Monday, September 23, 2019, at noon CST. Winners will be announced during the holiday season. For a full list of prizes and for submission FAQs, visit petcofoundation.org/holidaywishes.
Since 2013, nearly $4 million in Holiday Wishes grants have been awarded to help make the holidays brighter for pets in need during the holiday season and year-round.

About Tulsa SPCA
Since 1913 the Tulsa SPCA has been working with Northeastern Oklahoma animal lovers to protect dogs and cats in our community. Together, we’ve saved animals from homelessness, illness, and abuse. We’ve provided these services while being completely funded by private donations. We are not an affiliate of the ASPCA, nor do we receive government assistance. Community support is critical in helping the Tulsa SPCA to continue providing these critical services to our community.
