Search And Rescue Dog Recognized as ‘Helping Hero'

The Petco Foundation honored another furry friend as a ‘Helping Hero’ as part of its annual campaign to recognize the hard work of therapy, service, and working animals.

Skye, a Border Collie, has been deployed to several disasters sites, including wreckage from a few tornadoes, and a parking garage collapse in downtown Dallas since being trained in 2013.

Other Helping Heroes and their human handlers around the nation spent the afternoon at selected Petco stores to meet and greet pet lovers and answer questions regarding training and their work.

This year, the Petco Foundation has a goal to raise $2.5 million to help support these animals and their work.

Anyone interested in supporting these Helping Heroes can donate online or at a Petco store.
