Through sales of its Bobs from Skechers collection, Skechers has made a donation of more than $509,000 to the Petco Foundation, bringing the company’s total contribution to more than $5.45 million for animal welfare agencies. The donations have helped save and support more than one million dogs and cats and is aiding shelters and agencies closed due to the coronavirus crisis.
“Many in the country are working from home or are under stay-at-home orders and are feeling isolated. Adopting an animal can make the difference,” says Michael Greenberg, president of Skechers. “Consumers love the comfortable styles and give-back message of Bobs from Skechers. We’re grateful that through their purchases, we’ve been able to donate $509,000 already in 2020, help thousands of animal welfare agencies during this challenging time and enable them to offer companionship to all of those people who are sheltering in place.”
