Petco Check Celebration
Thursday, June 23rd 2PM
Petco Love is a national nonprofit leading change for pets by harnessing the power of love to make communities and pet families closer, stronger, and healthier. Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love has invested $330 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts. And Petco Love helps find loving homes for pets in partnership with Petco and more than 4,000 organizations — like ours — across North America, with 6.5 million pets adopted and counting.
“Our investment in the Winchester SPCA is part of more than $15M in investments recently announced by Petco Love to power local organizations across the country as part of our commitment to create a future in which no pet is unnecessarily euthanized,” said Susanne Kogut, president of Petco Love. “Our local investments are only part of our strategy to empower animal lovers to drive lifesaving change right alongside us. We recently celebrated the one-year launch anniversary of Petco Love Lost, a national lost and found database that uses pet facial recognition technology to simplify the search for lost pets.”
“Each year, the support we receive from our partnership with Petco grows and each year we grow with it, saving more animals and expanding community programming. This growth would not be possible without this level of support.” said Lavenda Denney, Executive Director.
The Winchester SPCA is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to enhancing the human-animal bond and safeguarding animals in transition, serving the Winchester area and saving at risk animals throughout The Commonwealth.

Adopt a Cat Month
June is Adopt a Cat Month, and the Winchester SPCA is celebrating with $40 adoptions all month long. Stop in at our adoption center, 111 Featherbed Lane in Winchester, VA and adopt a cat or kitten for just $40. Adoption fee includes neuter, age-appropriate vaccinations, parasite treatment, microchip, take-home box. FIV/FeLV testing is available for an additional $30 preadoption.
During National Adopt a Cat Month, every June, hundreds of felines find a forever home, thanks to the constant campaigning done by numerous cat lovers across the U.S. Since June is considered kitten season, a lot of cats end up homeless when their owners are unable to find them a home. Seeing this influx in cats brought to the shelters, many campaigns for cat adoption started in June. Why should you adopt a cat? Because they are loving creatures who are easy to keep as pets and provide some of the best cuddles at night!
