Covington Tractor Supply presenting Pet Appreciation Week

Tractor Supply Company, which has a location at 10161 Lochridge Blvd. in Covington, is holding its third annual Pet Appreciation Week Aug. 14 to 18, with the main event on Aug. 17 to feature pet adoptions, giveaways and nutrition demonstrations. Pets are also welcome to take part in the festivities.

“Pet Appreciation Week not only allows us to showcase Tractor Supply as a great pet destination, but it also supports a cause that means so much to us,” said John Wendler, Tractor Supply Senior Vice President of Marketing. “By bringing pet services to our customers, we’re offering a hands-on learning experience about pet care, proper nutrition and adoption. This has been an extremely successful event the past two years, and we hope to continue celebrating our pets for years to come.”

Because of the ongoing need to place homeless pets, Tractor Supply is again partnering with PetFinder.com and local agencies to help organize a pet adoption event at each store. In addition to matching pets with caring families, the events are designed to increase awareness of local pet adoption programs in communities across the country and the importance of neutering and spaying your pets.

During the event, new pet parents will receive an Adoption Kit, courtesy of MARS Pet Care. MARS will also be making donations totaling $25,000 to animal shelters on Tractor Supply’s behalf.
