Petland donates computers for Oklahoma Relief Efforts

(Chillicothe, OH) – Petland recently donated three computers to the Animal Resource Center (ARC) to be utilized by the Center and the AKC Companion Animal Recovery (CAR) in on-the-ground efforts in Moore, Oklahoma to rescue, treat and track the hundreds of displaced pets.

“Without the laptops, we could never have gotten so many pets checked in, taken care of and identified as well as photos posted, animals reunited and keeping track of everything,” said ARC Board President Barbara Lewis.

The computers are being used at their intake and volunteer desk, the vet check area and the reclaiming and search for pet stations.

“We are honored to provide any assistance to the groups helping manage and care for the pets in Moore. We hope the computers help expedite more pets reunited with their family members,” said Elizabeth Kunzelman, director of Communications.

ARC is a non-profit organization set up through the trust of a fellow pet lover. AKC Companion Animal Recovery, founded in 1995, is the largest not for profit pet ID and recovery service.

Petland, Inc., founded in 1967, is a franchise operation with full service specialty retail pet centers across the United States, Canada, Japan, China, Mexico and South Africa.
