BEMIDJI — Great River Rescue received a $2,500 grant investment from national nonprofit Petco Love during a special celebration on Tuesday, June 21, at the Fargo Petco in support of their lifesaving work for animals in Bemidji.

Since its founding in 1999, Petco Love, a national nonprofit leading change for pets, has invested $330 million in adoption and other lifesaving efforts, a release said.

“Our investment in Great River Rescue is part of more than $15 million 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 are so grateful for the continued support of Petco Love. This grant will help us continue to provide high-quality care for every shelter pet,” said Brandon Mustful, executive director of Great River Rescue.

Great River Rescue is a nonprofit organization that saves, cares for, and finds homes for companion dogs and cats serving Bemidji and surrounding communities.
