Petland's Adopt-A-PetSM program has been a tremendous
success with Petland store operators collectively placing over a quarter of a million
homeless pets in the last ten years. The program also is growing stronger day by
day as new Petland stores open with the program.
Petland Pet Counselors work with staff at local animal shelters, pet rescue groups
and with members of the local community to place homeless pets - puppies, dogs,
kittens, cats and a variety of small animals. As part of this cooperative program,
Petland store operators make available their highly visible Petland display windows
to aid in the placement of homeless pets in local communities.
Local homeless pets and pet care organizations benefit. In fact, companywide, participating
Petland stores have placed more than 270,000 homeless pets 59,945 homeless puppies
and dogs and 212,534 homeless kittens and cats since 1998. As part of the Adopt-A-Pet
program, Petland store operators also give donations and conduct fundraisers to
aid animal care groups in the communities they serve. 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:
