Partner Recognition

Petco Foundation has been a strong supporter of SOCA-FBC over the past few years. March 2020, the foundation awarded us a grant supporting our animal transport strategic goal. With this $10,000 donation, Petco enabled us to purchase our own transport van. Keeping pandemic restrictions in mind, we hope to do our first transport this fall.

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

SOCA-FBC is very grateful for the continued support that Houston PetSet has provided over the past few years. This fall, we received a generous donation from HPS for 2023 to help us continue moving homeless and shelter animals into foster families, providing medical care for them, and placing those animals in forever homes. Follow Houston PetSet on Facebook.

December 2019, Houston PetSet awarded SOCA a grant to support our rescue, adoption, and transport efforts.

August 2018, Houston PetSet awarded SOCA a grant to support our ability to take more newborn puppies and kittens from area shelters and put them in foster homes that help the “bottle babies” thrive and that prepare them for adoption.

Thank you, Pedigree Foundation, for supporting SOCA-FBC! March 2019 Pedigree Foundation awarded us a grant that enables us to boost Facebook dog adoption promotions and gain more exposure for our adoptables. Boosted posts appear higher in Facebook news feeds, giving our adoptable dogs a greater chance of being noticed. And we can 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.

In January 2019, Maddie’s Fund awarded the Engaging the Public Innovation Grant for a new SOCA program to promote harder-to-place pets. Look for table cards with adoption information and photos of adoptable pets when you visit some area restaurants, stores, and other establishments.

Petfinder Foundation, in conjunction with Nestle Purina, gave SOCA a $2,000 grant in August 2018 that we used to reduce and waive adoption fees for hard-to-place pets, so that more animals can 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 30 additional animals in forever homes.

We thank you so much, Petfinder, for your continued support!
