The Tractor Supply Co. store in Middlesboro will host activities for families and their pets, including pet adoptions Sept. 19 as part of Pet Appreciation Week. Held Sept. 16-20, Pet Appreciation Week is Tractor Supply’s annual event to celebrate pet owners and their furry friends.
“Pet Appreciation Week is one of our favorite and most successful events of the entire year,” said Tracy Henegar, manager of the Middlesboro Tractor Supply store. “More often than not, animals become a member of the family, and there’s something really special about helping a family find and care for the perfect pet.”
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 events are open to the public — and pets — and will take place at Tractor Supply, located at 2030 US 25E in Middlesboro.
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 animal training and pet adoption.
Community partners for this year’s Pet Appreciation Week include (on-site from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.): Friends of the Shelter and a dog trainer.
