LYNCHBURG, Va. – There’s a chance you made a donation to the Lynchburg Humane Society and didn’t realize it.
The nonprofit received a $50,000 grant from Petco Thursday.
We’re told those funds come from customers opting to “save a pet’s life” when they check out at the register.
The no-kill shelter is a direct recipient of that money to support their lifesaving efforts for animals in Central Virginia.
“It’s [for] medical care, its vaccines, its food, it’s [for] the staff that care for the pets every single day. It’s everything that you could think that you would need to care for a pet,” said Jill Mollohan, associate director of the Lynchburg Humane Society.
Mollohan said Petco’s donated $680,000 to their humane society since 2014.
