Petsense by Tractor Supply will partner with animal shelters across the country to host its semiannual national fall “Adoptathon” event at all Petsense by Tractor Supply locations nationwide Saturday, Oct. 21 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Earlier this year, the pet adoption event placed 949 animals in their forever homes. Petsense by Tractor Supply hopes to help 1,100 adoptable dogs and cats find their forever families during the fall event.
“This biannual event is one way we enjoy connecting with our communities and helping shelter animals find their forever families,” said Petsense by Tractor Supply General Manager and Senior VP Matthew Rubin. “It’s a great opportunity to help the communities where we live and work.”
According to the Humane Society, approximately 6.5 million animals nationally enter shelters each year but only about half of those animals get adopted. Determined to improve this situation across the US, Petsense by Tractor Supply’s goal is to save as many shelter animal lives as possible. Local shelters and organizations are invited to participate in the event across the country.
Customers who attend the Adoptathon can expect:
- Local animal shelters and rescue groups on site with dogs and cats eligible for adoption.
- Perks for those who adopt animals, including a goody bag of fun giveaways and several special coupons to save on supplies, services and food as a new pet parent.
Those interested in adopting can visit their local Petsense by Tractor Supply store or go to Petsense for more information.
