Petco promotes pet adoption via YouTube


San Diego - Petco is launching the "Think Adoption First" video series, a documentary-style series featuring celebrity pet owners reflecting on the impact their adopted pets have had on their lives. The first videos in the series feature professional surfer Taylor Knox, professional skateboarder and rally cross driver Bucky Lasek, Tyson Ross of the San Diego Padres and roller derby athlete Bonnie Thunders.

The Think Adoption First video series, hosted on YouTube, will continue to expand to feature more stories of celebrities and their special relationships with their adopted pet. Petco stores host adoption events throughout the year where new pet owners can receive tips on how to care for their pets from Petco representatives, learn about local pet adoption efforts and meet adoptable pets.

"Think Adoption First is rooted in our belief that every pet should have the chance to be adopted into a loving home and we continue to support this commitment through our work with the Petco Foundation," said Jim Myers, Petco CEO. "We hope by seeing the stories shared by Taylor, Bucky, Bonnie and Tyson, it will inspire people to visit their local shelter or rescue group and think about adoption before purchasing a pet of any kind."
