Farmville Tractor Supply holds Pet Appreciation Week events

The Tractor Supply Co. store in Farmville will hold activities for families and their pets, including pet adoptions, Saturday as part of Pet Appreciation Week.

“Pet Appreciation Week is one of our favorite and most successful events of the entire year,” said David Loveday, manager of the Farmville Tractor Supply store. “More often than not, animals become a member of the family.”

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 at 1575 S. Main St in Farmville.

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, Car Wash and Pet Care 101.

Community partners for this year’s Pet Appreciation Week include the Longwood Equestrian Team on site from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Contact the Tractor Supply store at 392-1594 for pet adoption details and other planned activities.
