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.
