Alcatraz Storage in Fort Wayne Partners with Perfect Paws Pet Rescue

Each day, 70,000 puppies and kittens are born. Each year, eight million dogs and cats enter animal shelters in the United States. Approximately 64% of them end up being euthanized because the shelters are over crowded and lack funding to cover their food and vaccinations. They are also put down because the animals cannot be placed in permanent homes.

Kevin Rollings, owner of Alcatraz Storage in Fort Wayne, Indiana, understands the need for shelters for these homeless animals. Yesterday, he announced his partnership with Perfect Paws Pet Rescue.

Perfect Paws Pet Rescue provides a temporary home for dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens that come from unfortunate circumstances.

While under the care at Perfect Paws, animals receive age appropriate vaccinations. Dogs are heartworm tested and started on heartworm prevention if necessary. Cats are leukemia tested. All cats and dogs will be wormed and started on flea/tick prevention. They will also be spayed/neutered (if they are old enough). Then, Perfect Paws tries to place every animal in their care in a permanent home.

Perfect Paws finds volunteers who will be foster families to the rescued animals until permanent homes can be located. Volunteers also help with adoption events and transport the animals to and from the vet’s office.

Since Rollings has a soft spot for furry friends – especially dogs – he decided to do what he can to help out Perfect Paws. Alcatraz Storage will host three adoption days a year to find homes for the dogs and cats at Perfect Paws. Rollings has also dedicated storage space for people who want to make donations to Perfect Paws.

Rollings is also offering a discount to anyone in need of self storage when they make a donation to Perfect Paws Pet Rescue. Rollings said, “We really want to reward all the great folks out there that go out of their way to make a difference.” He added, “We feel very fortunate to have super customers that treasure our animal friends as much as we do.”

Rollings has over 25 years of experience in the self storage industry. He owns and operates two Alcatraz Storage facilities (one in Fort Wayne and one in Brownsburg) and Hoosier Storage in Indianapolis.

In addition to owning these self storage facilities, Rollings is a Certified Self Storage Manager and belongs to the Self Storage Association. He provides consultation, training, and workshops to managers and owners of self storage facilities. He trains them how to efficiently and productively operate a self storage business.
