Petco donates $250,000 to Wisconsin School of Veterinary Medicine


The Petco Foundation has donated $250,000 to the UW School of Veterinary Medicine to further lifesaving care for pets in need.

The donation comes after the story of how the university helped save a dog named Scout went viral. Scout is nearly cancer free after having a rare, aggressive form of cancer.

Scout’s owner, WeatherTech CEO David MacNeil, took out a 30-second commercial during the Super Bowl to thank the University of Wisconsin.

The ad cost an estimated $5.2 million.
