From longer walks to cozier naps and all the magical moments in between, we know that pets change our lives for the better. Share how the love of your adopted OAS pet has changed your life to help give Oakland Animal Services the chance at a $100,000 grant award from Petco Love and BOBS from Skechers. Submit your story by Sept. 20, 10:00 am (PDT) at petcolove.org/lovestory.
Winning Love Stories will earn grant awards of up to $100,000 PLUS winning adopters will receive a Petco shopping spree and BOBS from Skechers shoes!
Love Stories should focus on the ways your OAS pet has changed your life for the better. Each submission is limited to 500 words or less and must include four supporting photos: one photo of your pet by him/herself, one photo of you or your family with your pet and two additional photos that help illustrate your story. You may also submit an optional video to further illustrate your Love Story.
