Published 11:59 pm Wednesday, September 9, 2015


The Tractor Supply Co. store in Andalusia will host activities for families and their pets, including pet adoptions, Sat., 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.

“There’s a vast number of healthy dogs and cats just waiting to be adopted, and Pet Appreciation Week is our chance to help these pets find homes,” said Aaron Brown, manager of the Andalusia Tractor Supply store. “By partnering with our great local nonprofits, we’re able to match families with great pets and help those families start pet ownership on the right foot – or paw.”

As part of the main event on Sat., 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 540 West Bypass in Andalusia.

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 pet adoption, pet clinic and face painting.
