Food drive, animal adoptions part of Tractor Supply event

Tractor Supply Co. in Shawano​ is dedicating the entire month of August to showing its appreciation for animals.

The rural lifestyle retailer will host a variety of animal-centric happenings and deals as part of Out Here With Animals, its monthlong event for animals of all kinds and the people who care for them.

Out Here With Animals kicked off Wednesday with a monthlong pet supplies drive. The community can show its support by dropping off new sealed food, toys, cleaning supplies and other essential pet accessories such as beds, scratching posts, leashes and bowls to be donated to local rescues and shelters.

In addition to the supplies drive, Tractor Supply will host a pet adoption event Aug. 25. Local animal organizations interested in participating are encouraged to sign up online at www.TractorSupply.com/EventPartners or by contacting the Shawano​ Tractor Supply. Registration closes Aug. 22.

“Out Here With Animals allows the Shawano​ community to come together to celebrate their pets while supporting the great work of their local animal organizations,” said Mary Lawley, vice president of store administration at Tractor Supply Co. “Whether you have a dog, cat, horse, pig or goat, we hope families will bring their leashed, friendly pets to the store to show how special their animals are and help us find homes for the local adoptable animals that deserve a family too.”

Tractor Supply is also shining a spotlight on animal organizations through the return of its popular Rescue Your Rescue contest. The retailer will donate a total of $25,000 in grants to 10 animal nonprofits that deserve a boost.
