Petland takes its obligation to be part of the community very seriously. Petland
is proud of its leadership in the area of public education on spaying and neutering
as a way to halt pet overpopulation as well as its pro-active adoption program for
placement of homeless litters of puppies and kittens, whether from a shelter, pet
rescue group or just a member of the local community.
A child's first class tour at Petland where she learns to finger-tame a parakeet
is priceless. Equally gratifying is the look on a senior citizen's face while holding
a Petland kitten. Petland therapy is a natural extension of Petland's retail environment
and our pet counselors love visiting schools and nursing homes with Petland pets.
Charitable acts are protocol at Petland, too. Store operators collect
donations for charities; hold fundraisers for local animal care groups and give
generously of themselves with cash donations to select community causes.
At Petland, we believe in doing the right thing for our pets, our customers and
the communities in which we serve. A number of important community service programs
exist at Petland. They include:
