Has your adopted pet changed YOUR life? Help Suncoast Humane Society's Winter Wishes come true!
YOU can help us earn $100,000 this holiday season!
Share your story, help make our holiday wishes come true!

The Petco Foundation, together with BOBS from Skechers, want to know all the ways, big and small, that your adopted pet has changed your life for the better. Winning stories will receive up to a $100,000 Holiday Wishes grant award for their adoption organization PLUS winning adopters will receive a Petco shopping spree and BOBS from Skechers shoes!

Submit your story by Sept. 23!

  1. If you’ve adopted a pet from Suncoast Humane Society, share how your pet changes your life for the better each and every day. Write your story in 500 words or less.
  2. Upload at least four photos to support your story: one photo of your pet by him/herself, one photo of you or your family with your pet and two additional photos. You can add video too to help illustrate the bond between you and your pet. Visit to read prior year’s winning entries and get some inspiration. Remember, good stories will show how your pet changed YOUR life. Please let us know if you need help with taking a few great photos!
  3. This step is very important. Make sure to include the following information with your submission, so that we can be eligible for a grant award:
