Program provides gift cards to families who adopt at the Licking County Dog Shelter
Petland in Heath has been matching the right pet with the right customer since 1986. They are now also helping support families who find the right pet at the Licking County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center.
Beginning February 1, anyone who adopts a dog from the Licking County Dog Shelter (LCDS) will received a $25 Petland gift card and free 4 lb. bag of dog food.
“The Licking County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center appreciates Petland’s donation of gift cards and dog food for our dog adopters at the Heath store. Their support through general manager Hope Mills, of monthly adoption events for our shelter dogs at the store has resulted in adoptions and exposure for the shelter, ” said Licking County’s Chief Dog Warden David Shellhouse.
Customers receive their $25 gift card upon completion of their adoption paperwork at the dog shelter and receive their dog food when redeeming their gift card at the store.
The gift card program has been incorporated into Petland Charities, a 501c3, whose mission is to help support shelters and service animals. The program was piloted at the Ross County Humane Society in Chillicothe, Ohio.
