Round Room LLC has announced that more than 500 of its TCC and Wireless Zone stores are teaming up with local animal rescue organizations to host pet adoption events and supply drives.
The company’s inaugural Rescues Rock campaign will be at 1 p.m. Sunday at stores across the country, including TCC at 1327 E. Tipton St., Seymour.
Each participating TCC and Wireless Zone store is partnering with a local animal rescue organization to promote pet adoptions onsite and donate supply kits to the owners of the first dog and cat adoptions of the day. Each kit includes a rescue car magnet, a drawstring bag, a collar, a leash, a food scoop, a toy, treats and a bowl.
According to the Humane Society of the United States, humane organizations spend upwards of $2.5 billion each year to house and care for stray animals. While the number of pets purchased from breeders has decreased since 2016, there are still millions of animals in need of loving homes.
Of the 6 million to 8 million pets surrendered each year, approximately 4 million of them are adopted, said Scott Moorehead, chief executive officer of Round Room, parent company of TCC.
