Petland Stores Support Local Shelters

Petland in Chillicothe has been matching the right pet with the right customer for more than 53 years. They are also helping support families who find the right pet at the Ross County Humane Society (RCHS) and the Licking County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center.

Since March of 2016, any individual or family who has adopted a dog from RCHS has received a $50 Petland gift card. As of October 31, Petland has redeemed nearly $110,000 in those cards at the local stores on Bridge Street and Western Avenue. The Petland store in Heath has redeemed more than $7,000 in $25 gift cards for families who adopted their pet at the Licking County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center.

Petland Heath’s first gift card was redeemed on February 7, 2019. The program works with local shelters to ensure all dogs go home with essential supplies and food.

Petland is proud of its relationship with RCHS, maintaining a position on the board, and raising awareness through fundraisers and donation events. In January, Petland began a feeding program at RCHS and to date, has provided over $35,000 in dog food donations.

In-store events help adopt local shelter dogs and raise funds.

“Our mission is to match the right pet with the right family and we want families to find the right pet whether they visit Petland or a local humane society or shelter. If a family finds their perfect pet at the Ross County Humane Society or the Licking County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center, we can help them with food, supplies or toys,” said Petland Vice President Steve Huggins. Huggins also serves on the Ross County Humane Society Board. Customers receive their gift card upon completion of their adoption paperwork at the Humane Society.
