Tractor Supply to host pet adoptions

TROY — The Tractor Supply Co. store in Troy will host activities for families and their pets, including pet adoptions, Saturday, Sept. 19 as part of Pet Appreciation Week.

Held Sept. 16-20, Pet Appreciation Week or P.A.W. is Tractor Supply’s annual event to celebrate pet owners and their furry friends.

“Pet ownership is exciting and has a lot of emotional and physical benefits, but it also bears responsibility, too,” said Ron Lavender, manager of the Troy Tractor Supply store. “Pet Appreciation Week gives us an opportunity to partner with incredible organizations and talk with families about the joy of owning pets, while also providing them with the tools they need to do it right.”

As part of the main event Sept. 19, Tractor Supply will feature pet adoptions, demonstrations on pet nutrition, drawings for $200 worth of gift cards, and giveaways, including a tennis ball and pet food mats while supplies last.

All Pet Appreciation Week events are open to the public — and pets — and will take place at Tractor Supply at 20 Stanfield Road in Troy.

In addition to finding good homes for dogs and cats, Saturday’s adoption events will also raise awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering pets and provide information on proper pet care and nutrition.

Several activities will take place during the main event, including pet clinic, pet photos and pet adoption.

Community partners for this year’s Pet Appreciation Week include:

• Midwestern Pet Foods (Earthborn) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 19

• Blue Buffalo from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 19
