As you know, Pet World suffered a tragic fire on Memorial Day that rocked our community. For the first week we were totally overwhelmed with public support and requests to donate. Because we have insurance and we are not a non-profit we resisted accepting donations for relief efforts. We had never been through anything like this before and, quite frankly, had no idea how to handle public funds. Plus we were saddened and discouraged by the phony donation sites being set up in our name by people who were not PW representatives. At first we simply asked folks to refrain from making donations but our supporters would not back down, insisting they not only wanted to help, they needed to help. So we finally went to our own, local bank and they helped us set up an official account.

To officially donate to fire relief efforts you have the following options:

Send money online through PayPal to

Visit any branch of

Mail donations to
Central Bank of the Midwest
Pet World Relief Fund
300 W. 9th St.
Lawrence, KS 66044

Or donate directly to the Lawrence Humane Society in our honor and let them use the funds for their facility.

Please note Pet World has not authorized any GoFundMe or similar accounts. All financial donations are being handled solely by Central Bank. Please do not be fooled by unofficial fundraising accounts.  

Thank you very much for your overwhelming support. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.

Please note: We do NOT have anyone going door to door to collect for the relief fund. Please contact us or the police if you are approached by someone claiming to sell discount cards on Pet World's behalf. 7858417476

LK Promotions did a great job with their restaurant discount cards and they are still selling them, but no longer to benefit PW (ended Oct. 1) Please ask for I.D. Matt Nichols is the only licensed seller for LK promotions (which is still a great deal, just no longer raising money for PW.) If you are approached by someone claiming to be raising funds for PW or someone selling LK cards who is not Matt Nichols, please call the police. Thanks!
