TCC teams up with local animal rescues to encourage pet adoptions


Five hundred TCC stores across the nation hosting pet adoption events on Sunday, May 19

CARMEL, Ind. — Round Room LLC, the nation’s largest Verizon Authorized Wireless Retailer, announces today 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 first-ever “Rescues Rock” campaign will be held at TCC and Wireless Zone stores across the country on Sunday, May 19 at 1 p.m.

“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.”

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.

Local stories participating in the event include:

• TCC Troy, 1833 W. Market St., Troy

• TCC Piqua, 1204 E. Ash St., Piqua

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.
