TCC teams up with local animal rescues to encourage pet adoptions

Round Room LLC announced this week 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 New Castle TCC store, 111 S. Memorial Drive, is taking part in the company’s first-ever “Rescues Rock” campaign at 1 p.m. Sunday, May 19.

“Of the 6-8 million pets surrendered each year, approximately 4 million of them are adopted,” said Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room, parent company of TCC. “In our household, our four-legged friends are important members of the family, and we feel honored to work alongside local animal rescues across the country to encourage more people to give these pets a forever home.”

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.

Each participating TCC and Wireless Zone store is partnering with a local animal rescue organization to promote pet adoptions on site and donate supply kits to the owners of the first dog and cat adoptions of the day. Each kit includes a rescue car magnet, drawstring bag, collar, leash, food scoop, toy, treats and a bowl.

Supporters of the Rescues Rock campaign are encouraged to use hashtags #RescuesRocks and #BetterTogether on Instagram and Twitter to help spread the word.

TCC makes ongoing investments in the local communities where it operates through its Culture of Good movement. Earlier this year, the company donated supply packs to nearly 6,000 teachers across the U.S. In 2018, the organization donated more than 187,000 backpacks with school supplies at TCC and Wireless Zone stores across the country; gave supply packs to more than 5,000 teachers across the U.S.; and provided 3,000 care kits to senior living communities.
