CCAS and Petco Love Team Up to Celebrate Fostering

Cape Coral Animal Shelter teams up with national nonprofit Petco Love and Skechers with its BOBS from Skechers philanthropic footwear collection, to put the focus on the fun in fostering pets. 

Pet fostering is lifesaving and critical for animal shelters particularly during the busy summer season. Did you know if fewer than 2% of pet-owning households in the U.S. fostered a pet, we could eliminate preventable euthanasia in shelters tomorrow?

Throughout June 2022, in partnership with Petco Love, we’re sharing the fun aspects of fostering while helping pet parents groove through their foster pet goodbyes. In fact, saying goodbye to foster pets – and the fear they’ll struggle giving the pet to a new family – is among the most-cited reasons why pet parents don’t foster.

Petco Love is taking a humorous approach to saying goodbye to foster pets by holding a #MyFosterBreakUp story contest featuring Foster Breakup Kits giveaways. Share your foster story throughout June with #MyFosterBreakUp and #petcolovefoster for a chance to win BOBS from Skechers shoes.

Foster Breakup Kits include breakup essentials: cozy, festive socks from BOBS from Skechers, a pint of Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream, Kleenex, the official Petco Love Foster Breakup Spotify Playlist, and a foster tee that reminds you that “Foster Pets are Here for A Fun Time, not a Long Time.” 

Foster parents can enter to win by sharing their breakup letter from their foster pet on Instagram by tagging @PetcoLove and using the hashtags #MyFosterBreakUp and #petcolovefoster from June 1–30, 2022 and even help win $10,000 in lifesaving funds for Cape Coral Animal Shelter.
