Great River Rescue receives Petco Love grant

Great River Rescue received a $2,500 grant investment from Petco Love during a special celebration in Fargo Tuesday afternoon.

According to a release, the grant is to support their lifesaving work for animals in Bemidji.

“Our investment in Great River Rescue 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 creating 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 recently celebrated the one-year launch anniversary of Petco Love Lost, a national lost and found database that uses pet facial recognition technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”

“We are so grateful for the continued support of Petco Love. This grant will help us continue to provide high-quality care for every shelter pet,” said Brandon Mustful, Executive Director of Great River Rescue.
