Tractor Supply sets pet event

Published 10:35 pm Thursday, September 10, 2015

The Tractor Supply Co. store in Suffolk will host activities for families and their pets, including pet adoptions, on 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 Clint Coburn, manager of the Suffolk 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 on 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 3000 Pruden Blvd.

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 4health Resource Center, animal training, Pet Care 101 and a police/military dog demonstration.

Community partners for this year’s Pet Appreciation Week — Imperial Kennels, Pawsitive Attitudes and Lisa Steele, author of “Fresh Eggs Daily” — will also be on hand from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Sept. 19.
