Petland's Adopt-A-PetSM program
has been a tremendous success with Petland store operators
collectively placing over a quarter of a million homeless pets in the
last ten years. The program also is growing stronger day
by day as new Petland stores open with the program.
Petland Pet Counselors work with staff at local animal shelters,
pet rescue groups and with members of the local community
to place homeless pets - puppies, dogs, kittens, cats and
a variety of small animals. As part of this cooperative program,
Petland store operators make available their highly visible
Petland display windows to aid in the placement of homeless
pets in local communities.
Local homeless pets and pet care organizations benefit. In fact, companywide, participating Petland stores have placed more than 310,000 homeless pets 72,531 homeless puppies and dogs and 234,497 homeless kittens and cats since 1998. A 2010 survey indicated that 5,520 reptiles, birds and litters of small animals have also been adopted through the program. As part of the Adopt-A-Pet program,
Petland store operators also give donations and conduct fundraisers
to aid animal care groups in the communities they serve.

Nearly all Adopt-A-Pets go home with a Pets for a LifetimeSM
Resource Kit. The kit addresses pet needs and aims to ensure
the pet has a successful transition into its new home.
Some Petland stores also micro-chip their Adopt-A-Pets and
enter pet identification information into a national pet registry.
The goal of micro-chipping is to see to it that lost Adopt-A-Pets
have a better chance of being reunited with their owners.
