Round Room, LLC. Gifts $60,000 in Grants to Support Animal Rescues Nationwide


As the Need for Pet Adoption Increases, One of the Nation's Largest Verizon Authorized Retailers Donates Thousands to Six Rescues

FISHERS, Ind., June 11, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- With a goal of increasing the number of pet adoptions in the U.S., Round Room, LLC – one of the nation's largest Verizon Authorized Retailers – surprised six animal rescues with a $10,000 grant during recent adoption events. As part of the company's third annual Rescues Rock initiative, its TCC and Wireless Zone retail locations also hosted a month-long supply drive and on-site pet adoption events on May 11.

As the need for pet adoption increases, Indiana-based Round Room, LLC. gifts $60K to pet rescues across the U.S.

The Goal
While 6.3 million animals enter shelters every year, only two-thirds become adopted. As the critical need for pet adoptions increases, Round Room remains committed to creating more awareness for and support all shelters. With many of its employees passionate about pet adoption, this will continue to be a priority for Round Room as they advocate for animal welfare.

"It' truly a privilege to be able to support animal rescues with their individual needs," shared Scott Moorehead, CEO of Round Room. "Having a natural passion for giving back is something we look for in our employees, and many of them have a deep commitment to animals. If our efforts can make even a small difference in helping shelter animals find forever homes, we'll consider that a job well done."



The Impact
While Round Room advertised that just one of six finalists would receive a $10,000 grant, all six rescue organizations were surprised with a grant resulting in a total donation of $60,000. These rescues include Foothills Animal Rescue from Scottsdale, AZ; All Paws on Deck and Wings of Freedom Animal Rescue from Griswold, CT; Sussex County Animal Association/Whimsical Animal Rescue from Seaford, DE; Furkids, Inc. from Cumming, GA; and Muddy Paws Second Chance Rescue from Omaha, NE. Additionally, more than 120 families took the next step toward adoption and providing a pet a forever home at the events, and hundreds of items were collected throughout May for animal rescues nationwide.

The Round Room Way
Philanthropy is simply a part of Round Room's DNA as the company regularly organizes events that leave positive impacts on the communities it serves. On a larger, national scale, Round Room hosts quarterly events including "Teachers Rock," "Rescues Rock," "School Rocks," and "Rock the Pantry."


"Whether it's helping animals live happy, healthy lives, fighting food insecurity, or supporting schools, we will always maintain our commitment to doing good," added Moorehead.
