(WFRV) – Petco has gifted the University of Wisconsin-Madison School of Veterinary Medicine $250,000 to battle pet cancer. The gift comes after hearing the story of Scout, a golden retriever who battled cancer with the help of the School.

Scout’s owner, David MacNeil, is the founder and CEO of WeatherTech. After the School of Veterinary Medicine helped Scout overcome cancer, WeatherTech purchased a Super Bowl commercial to help raise funds for the School.
