Pet Connections

Petland store in East Liberty

In November of 2010 Marci and Eric Caplan, the owners of Petland in The Village of Eastside developed and implemented a rescue only format  for their  Petland store in East Liberty.   The program is called, A.S.A.P for Animal Shelter Adoption Program.   The store works with shelters  and rescue groups  as an outlet for puppies, kittens, dogs and cats in need of furever ‘homes.  Being housed at Petland provides these pets with additional visibility to the public helping to find homes faster.

All animals in the ASAP program are provided with veterinary care by the Point Breeze Veterinary Clinic to keep them healthy.   All the pets are up to date on their vaccinations, spayed or neutered and micro chipped for identification.  They also receive lifetime enrolment in the Petland Enhanced Protection Program which registers the micro chip and couples it with Help Me Find My Pet (an amber alert for pets).

On November 7th Petland will hold an adoption reunion and celebration in honor of having found homes for over 1000 pets through the ASAP program.  The event will have food, fun, prizes and more.  Come help us celebrate this milestone.
