Pet Things started off 2014 with a donation of 900 pounds of dog and cat food to the Douglas County Animal Shelter, shown here being presented to Shelter Director Bill Peacock and Douglas County Commission Chairman Tom Worthan by store owner Terry Brlecic and his dogs Jake and Teddy.

Pet Things, its suppliers, and its customers donated 6,000 pounds of dog and cat food to the Shelter in 2013.

Shelter Director Bill Peacock stated that “this donation shows the love of animals and commitment to the community by Mr. Brlecic and his family, their customers and business associates.  We are very grateful for their continuing support of Shelter animals.”

The Brlecic family - Terry, wife Cathy, and son Brandon - own five dogs of their own and have been very active in  placing animals with forever families.  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 hosts pet adoptions each Saturday at their store at 6880 Douglas Boulevard, Suite E next door to Chuck E Cheese.  The Zoo Crew, a rescue organization, will bring animals on the first, third and fourth Saturday of each month, and the Douglas County Animal Shelter will bring animals on the second Saturday of each month.

These are good people who love animals. They never became involved with the nasty issues and name calling that plagued the DCAC a year ago and just continued to donate food for the shelter animals.
