ALTON — The Tractor Supply Co. store will host activities for families and their pets, including pet adoptions, Saturday, Sept. 19, as part of Pet Appreciation Week.
Pet Appreciation Week, or P.A.W., is Tractor Supply’s annual event Sept. 16-20 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 Alan Bruhn, manager of the Alton 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 Saturday, 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, 3001 Homer Adams Parkway.
In addition to finding good homes for dogs and cats, Saturday’s adoption events will 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 adoption, vaccinations and car wash.
Community partners for this year’s Pet Appreciation Week include Purina, 4-H Clubs and Alpaca Patch.
