3 Tons of Pet Food Donated by Pet Things

Three tons of cat and dog food have been donated by Pet Things in their first year of business, to the Douglas County Animal Shelter and other local shelters.

Pet Things at 6880 Douglas Boulevard recently celebrated its first anniversary as a business, and also reached a significant achievement - more than three tons of dog and cat food donated to the Douglas County Animal Shelter and other local shelters in their first year of business.

Pet Things owner Terry Brlecic and his family realized that the Douglas County Animal Shelter was going through a major transition in 2013; that funds were tight; that management and Shelter direction were changing for the better; 
but that animals were still coming in during this time. They recognized the situation and took positive steps.

The Brlecic family - Terry, wife Cathy, and son Brandon - have five dogs of their own and have been very active in placing animals with forever families, including hosting adoption clinics in their store almost every Saturday. In 
addition, the Brlecic family takes a dog from the Douglas County Animal Shelter, fully vets them, and fosters them at home and at the store until adopted. Pet Things also takes animal adoption requests and posts them in the store to hopefully match animal and owner. Pet Things’ customers regularly donate towards the dog and cat food provision by dropping change into a donation jar at the store register, and these funds are used for the food, as well as the store and supplier donations.

Douglas County Commission Chairman praised the Brlecic family “for their commitment to the community and to our animal citizens.”

Pet Things is located at 6880 Douglas Boulevard, Suite E, in Douglasville. www.PetThingsStore.com - 404-809-7059.

Terry, Cathy and Brandon are a great addition to our community. We do all of our shopping for our two dogs at Pet Things and are constantly recommending them. Bella, our dachshund, who is now 8 months old was found from a posting in their store. We took her from a family that did not want her and was going to take her to a shelter. Thanks for all you do! P.S.- They also carry a few of our Nature Moment 100% recycled shirts. Stop by and check out our puppy design.
