Young-Williams News

Calling Young-Williams adopters! Share your story to help us earn $100,000 (and you get some cool stuff, too!)

Have you adopted a pet from Young-Williams Animal Center? Share all the big and small ways your pet has changed your life to help us earn lifesaving funds for our mission from PetcoLove!

If you’ve adopted from Young-Williams, would you consider writing a story on how that pet has changed your life for the better? Stories should be 500 words or less and need to include four supporting photos: one photo of your pet by themselves, 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.

Click here to submit your Petco Love Story by 1:00 PM on Monday, September 20. Winning Love Stories will be announced during the holiday season and, not only will winner’s shelters be awarded grant funds, adopters who submitted a winning story will receive a Petco shopping spree of up to $1,000 and BOBS from Skechers shoes!

Important information when completing your story:

  • Select Young-Williams Animal Center as the organization from the drop-down menu.
  • You may also find us with our Tax ID Number: 45-5326778
  • Contact Grace Bennett at gbennett@young-williams.org or 865-215-6664 if you have any questions.

Remember, these stories should show how the love of your pet has changed YOUR life! And we here at Young-Williams know first-hand that they do.

Wishing you many days filled with happy purrs and playful barks!
