Tractor Supply donates pet food to humane society


By Leader Staff

The Tractor Supply Co. store in Shawano is donating 68 bags of pet food to feed dogs and cats in need of adoption, the local outlet of the retail chain announced Tuesday.

Jeff Olson, manager of the Shawano Tractor Supply store, said that, more often than not, animal shelters and rescues depend greatly on food donations to support the pets they take in that await adoption.

“Our goal at Tractor Supply is to do our part in helping adoption efforts in our community because we know that pets are more than just dogs and cats, they are family,” he said.

Tractor Supply presented the pet food donation to the Shawano County Humane Society and Oconto Area Humane Society.

In addition to the pet food donation, the Shawano Tractor Supply hosts pet adoption events throughout the year.

Founded in 1938, Tractor Supply Company is the largest rural lifestyle retail store chain in the United States. The company also owns and operates Petsense, a small-box pet specialty supply retailer focused on meeting the needs of pet owners, primarily in small and mid-size communities, and offering a variety of pet products and services.
