The Pet Industry's Leading Resource for News & Content Distribution

TravelCenters of America LLC (TA) is adding to its full-service benefits by welcoming pets to all travel centers within the TA and Petro Stopping Centers network.

Drivers will see a designated pet area at each location, inviting them to let their pets stretch their legs. And, while the canine and feline species can’t be allowed inside, drivers can find a growing area of pet products on our travel store shelves.

“A lot of truckers take their pets on the road,” said Tom O’Brien, President and CEO of TA. “We recognize the need for drivers to have a place where they and their pets are welcome,” he added. Mr. O’Brien’s dog, Smokey, added, “Woof!”

Taking full-service to an even higher level, the Iowa 80 TA in Walcott, Iowa even has a 24- Hour self-serve Dogomat(TM) Pet Wash next to the Truckomat(R) Truck Wash.

TravelCenters of America LLC (TA), headquartered in Westlake, Ohio is a leading travel center business in 41 states and Canada operating under the TravelCenters of America and Petro brands. With convenient locations off interstate highway exits, TA and Petro offer their customers diesel and gasoline fueling services, full and quick-service restaurants, heavy truck maintenance services, 24-hour convenience stores, electronic communication (WiFi) and other services — all within large, high traffic facilities.
