Thank you for helping us help them!
 AVCC is a proud recipient of funding from the organizations displayed below!


As one of the nation’s largest funders of animal welfare causes, the Petco Foundation holds a responsibility and obligation to invest funds wisely in organizations that achieve their mission and vision. We partner with organizations to raise awareness of pet adoptions, animal welfare needs, community outreach events and project partnerships to help save the lives of homeless animals across the country.


F. Scott Fitzgerald may have written “There are no second acts in American lives”…but there can be a “Second Act” for the thousands of dogs and cats whose lives end in shelters each year.  The lucky ones will avoid euthanasia and be taken in by pet rescue organizations. Second Acts was established to help make that happen.  
Second Acts distributes 100% of all donations received to small, volunteer-run groups nationwide that adopt a no-kill policy.  
  Two years ago, the ASPCA® and Lil BUB announced a partnership to help special needs pets nationwide: Lil BUB’s BIG Fund for the ASPCA. This unique program is seeded through proceeds from Lil BUB’s web store, in-person appearances, and other types of Lil BUB events, as well as from direct donations through a special donations link on 100%
of funds collected are distributed as grants by the ASPCA to animal welfare organizations across the country to help homeless pets with special needs.
