Petland In the Community

January 3, 2022

Petland stores pride themselves on giving back to the community that has given so much to us in terms of patronage and trust. It is mainly for this reason that we run several charity programs and events to touch the lives of several people/pets across different states where our stores are located. Here are details of some of the different programs that we are involved in:

Safari Stan’s Children’s Charities by Petland 

This charity program was officially launched for children in 1994, and we currently have two organizations.For the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America, since 1998, Petland has helped bring over 850 pet-related wishes.Likewise, for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Petland has collected over $1.2 million for thirteen years and counting!

Pet Therapy at Petland

This program benefits young children and the elderly in our communities. Petland occasionally takes some of our pets on visits to schools and nursing homes for some animal and human bonding experience. This has been proven to be an incredible experience for people!

Pets in the Classroom 

This is a program run by the Pet Care Trust, with Petland as an active member. This program seeks to generate funds to enable teachers to purchase pets and pet-related supplies for their classrooms. The aim of this is to promote a healthy relationship between kids and their pets if/when they have one.

Adopt A Pet

Petland takes in homeless pets from various sources such as pet rescue groups, local animal shelters, or people with more pets than they can properly take care of. Petland counselors work hand-in-hand with the welfare groups to find satisfactory homes for these pets.

Other activities include:

Now, this is our little way of giving back, and we would definitely be looking to do even more!
