Since March of 2016, any individual or family who has adopted a dog from the local humane society has received a $50 Petland gift card. As of August 1, Petland has redeemed more than $45,000 in those cards at the local stores on Bridge Street and Western Avenue.
In addition to this milestone, Petland Charities presented the Ross County Humane Society with $4,000 ($3,000 in June and $1,000 this month), from the round-up at the register program in the Chillicothe locations to help support their operations and their 4th annual Miles for Mutts Fun Trail Run/Walk on August 25th at Hopewell Mound Group.
Petland is proud of its relationship with the Ross County Humane Society, maintaining a position on the board, and raising awareness through fundraisers and donation events.
“We want families to find the right pet whether they visit Petland or a local humane society or shelter. If they adopt at the Ross County Humane Society, we can help make sure they get a great start with food, supplies or toys,” said Petland Vice President Steve Huggins. Huggins also serves on the Ross County Humane Society Board.
Customers receive their $50 gift card upon completion of their adoption paperwork at the Humane Society.
The gift card program has been incorporated into Petland Charities, a 501c3, whose mission is to help support shelters and service animals. For more information, please contact Elizabeth Kunzelman at (740) 775-2464.
