BUSINESS - Petland Inc. Launches Petland Charities

Petland Inc. recently announced the launch of Petland Charities, a 501c3 organization that will raise funds for shelters and K9 units in the US.

Petland will invite customers to make donations to local shelter or K9 units throughout the year and Petland Charities will match customer donations up to $3,000 per store per year.

Petland Charities and the campaigns to raise funds for local shelters and K9 units will be introduced to the corporate stores in phases.

The first campaign launched May 1st with participating stores in Cicero, NY; Athens, OH; Chillicothe, OH; Dayton, OH; Gallipolis, OH; Grove City, OH; Heath, OH; Hilliard, OH; Lancaster, OH; Washington Court House; OH; and Monroeville, PA.

"We want to give these non-profits as much help as possible," said Edwin Sayres, executive director for Petland Charities. "All money raised from these campaigns will stay in these communities, ensuring local organizations receive the funds they need."

Petland will continue other corporate charitable giving, including promoting the adoption of homeless pets, granting children's pet-related wishes via the Make-A-Wish Foundation®, donating to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital®, paying for the training of service dogs for disabled veterans, donating food to K9 units and providing grants to teachers to purchase pets and pet supplies for the classroom.

"Petland has been giving back since the company was founded, so Petland Charities is simply an extension of our current efforts," Joe Watson, president and CEO of Petland, Inc. said.

"We take our role in the community very seriously and are excited to see the positive impact this new endeavor will have."
