“The outstanding investment from our partner Petco Love will help provide crucial funding to help support and promote our ever-growing pet neutering program within our care and communities. Not only does this help save a life, but it can help solve future dilemmas of unplanned litters — which often lead to overcrowding in shelters,” said Tammy Miller, manager of the Tri-City Animal Shelter & Adoption Center.
