Next week marks the third annual Pet Appreciation Week at Tractor Supply Company, an event celebrating pets and the joy they add to our lives. This year’s event will be held Aug. 14-18. Customers visiting their local Tractor Supply store will enjoy great sale items throughout the pet department and, for the main event Saturday, Aug. 17, customers will find pet adoptions, giveaways, nutrition demonstrations and more. All pets are also welcome to take part in the festivities.
“Pet Appreciation Week not only allows us to showcase Tractor Supply as a great pet destination, but it also supports a cause that means so much to us,” said John Wendler, Tractor Supply senior vice president of marketing. “By bringing pet services to our customers, we’re offering a hands-on learning experience about pet care, proper nutrition and adoption. This has been an extremely successful event the past two years, and we hope to continue celebrating our pets for years to come.”
Because of the ongoing need to place homeless pets, Tractor Supply is again partnering with PetFinder.com and local agencies to help organize a pet adoption event at each store. In addition to matching pets with caring families, the events are designed to increase awareness of local pet adoption programs in communities across the country and the importance of neutering and spaying your pets. During the event, new pet parents will receive an adoption kit, courtesy of MARS Pet Care. MARS will also be making donations totaling $25,000 to animal shelters on Tractor Supply’s behalf. The shelters will be determined by customer recommendations via Facebook throughout August at www.Facebook.com/TractorSupplyCo. Contact your local Tractor Supply store for particular details concerning the pet adoption event and the other planned activities.
In addition to the great savings and pet adoptions, each store will offer free giveaways and in-store drawings. Customers will receive a free Tractor Supply food scoop or a Pet Appreciation Week/Hills Science Diet Frisbee, while supplies last, and can enter a drawing to win “Doggie Bag” prize packs, a $150 gift card or a $100 Vet Services Rebate from Hills Science Diet. Customers can also register online for a chance to win in the P.A.W. Great Gift Cards Giveaway where Tractor Supply is giving away $25,000 in gift cards.
