Petco has launched a “Think Adoption First” video series, a documentary-style series featuring celebrity pet parents 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

“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.”

The video series will expand to feature more stories of celebrities and their relationships with their adopted pets.
