Partner Recognition

Petco Foundation has been a strong supporter of SOCA-FBC over the past years.

March 2020, the foundation awarded us a grant supporting our animal transport strategic goal. With a $10,000 donation, Petco enabled us to purchase our own transport van. We did our first transport in the fall of 2020. We continue to regularly transport animals in our van to pet lovers in other areas of the country.

In 2018, Petco Foundation awarded SOCA a grant for adoption support. Prior to that, with their $14,000 donation, Petco underwrote our ability to offer free and discounted adoption fees for harder-to-place pets.

Thank you Houston PetSet for your generous $2,500 donation for 2023! SOCA-FBC is very grateful for the continued support that you have provided over the past 6 years. Your support has allowed us to continue moving homeless and shelter animals into foster families, providing medical care for them, and then placing those animals into forever homes. Follow Houston PetSet on Facebook.

2023- HPS awarded SOCA with a generous amount to support taking in hard to adopt dogs that are in boarding facilities.

2020-2022, HPS helped SOCA’s ability to intake more homeless animals.

2019, HPS awarded SOCA a generous grant to support our animal transport to other areas of the country.

2018, HPS supported our intake of more newborn puppies and kittens from area shelters in order to put them in foster homes, and that helped these “bottle babies” thrive and prepare for adoption.

Thank you, Pedigree Foundation, for supporting SOCA-FBC. March 2019 the foundation awarded us a grant that helped boost our Facebook dog adoption promotions and gained  more exposure for our adoptable dogs. And we could reach a larger and more relevant audience, targeting users based on location and interest. Shop Pedigree to help their foundation give back to animal rescues like SOCA.

January 2019, Maddie’s Fund awarded SOCA the Engaging the Public Innovation Grant for a new program to promote harder-to-place pets. We worked with area restaurants, stores, and other establishments to place table cards with adoption information and photos of adoptable pets. We increased exposure and interest in our fosters that resulted in a few adoptions.

In Augest 2018, Petfinder Foundation, in cooperation with Nestle Purina, gave SOCA a $2,000 grant that we used to reduce and waive adoption fees for hard-to-place pets, so that more animals could find forever homes.

Petfinder also awarded SOCA a grant for medical and adoption expenses for dogs and cats affected by Hurricane Harvey. Thanks to their kind donation, we were able to place more than 30 animals in forever homes.

Thank you, PetSmart and Petco, for giving monetary support to SOCA-FBC during your National Adoption events and Holiday events – also for hosting our adoptable cats in your condos and for hosting our regular Saturday store adoption events.
