Petland Chillicothe Donates $20K to Shelter Adoptions


August 9, 2017

Petland in Chillicothe, Ohio, has been matching the right pet with the right customer for 50 years. They are also helping support families who find the right pet at the Ross County Humane Society.

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 $20,000 in those cards at the local stores on Bridge Street and Western Avenue.

In honor of this milestone, Petland Charities presented the Ross County Humane Society with a $2,000 check, $5 for every gift card redeemed.

Petland says it 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… period. Sometimes it’s at Petland and sometimes it’s at a local humane society or shelter. If they adopt at the Ross County Humane Society, we can help make sure that their new best friend gets off to a good start with some necessary food or supplies,” Petland Vice President Steve Huggins said. 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.
