This campaign is coordinated by the Petco Foundation specifically designed to benefit its partnering shelters and rescues. RVAS partners annually with Petco Stores in order to bring awareness to the public of the needs that animal shelters and rescues have to operate properly and save lives. Check our calendar of events to see which Petco store RVAS will be participating with this year.

    Don't Litter: Fix Your Critter - The Petco Foundation cares about overpopulation, too and offers their partnering shelters & rescues the opportunity to partner with them to help end overpopulation with their SPAY and NEUTER drive. Every weekend will be a fun event, usually outdoors to help bring awareness to the importance of how spaying and neutering does save lives. Watch our Event Calendar for specific details on this year's event.

    Pet Photos Santa

    Ring in the holiday season and celebrate with your entire family including those furry friends. Paws with Claus: Photos with Santa is our annual holiday event partnered with Petco. Bring your kids, both human and furry, in their best dress outfits and have their portraits taken with Santa Claus. High quality digital photos are taken by professional photographers and of course, Santa himself. These photos make great gifts, excellent for Holiday cards and of course generate a lifetime of memories.
