Petco Love: A nonprofit changing lives

(May 22, 2024) – Cat Adoption Team (CAT) is thrilled to receive a $25,000 grant investment from national nonprofit Petco Love to support their lifesaving work for cats and kittens in the Portland metro area.

Petco Love is a national nonprofit leading change for pets by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has invested nearly $400 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And Petco Love helps find loving homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations — like CAT — across North America, with 6.8 million pets adopted and counting.

“Our investment in Cat Adoption Team is part of more than $15M in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us. We launched Petco Love Lost, a national lost and found database that uses patented image-recognition technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”

“Thanks to this generous lifesaving investment from Petco Love, CAT can offer vital support that helps cats and people thrive,” said Karen Green, executive director of Cat Adoption Team. “With more local cats requiring special medical or behavioral care, this funding is crucial to sustaining our lifesaving work.”

Cat Adoption Team is a local nonprofit cat shelter that offers adoption, foster care, community support services, and other vital programs for cats, kittens, and people in the Portland metro area. With support from community members, partners like Petco Love, and over 500 volunteers, CAT has helped more than 60,000 cats and kittens find loving new homes since its founding in 1999.
