Retailer announces Pet Appreciation Week featuring social media contest, pet supply drive in partnership with MuttNation Foundation, and more

Tractor Supply Company is gearing up for one of its biggest pet celebrations yet with the return of its Pet Appreciation Week (PAW) event, held Sept. 8-13 in partnership with Seresto. During PAW, Tractor Supply will support local animal shelters through the Rescue Your Rescue contest and is teaming up with Miranda Lambert's MuttNation Foundation to host pet supply drives across the country. The festivities also coincide with the reopening of more than 1,500 PetVet community clinics at Tractor Supply stores.

The celebrations kick off in early September with the Rescue Your Rescue contest, co-sponsored by Tractor Supply and Canidae premium pet food. From Sept. 8-15, customers can nominate their favorite animal shelters at, giving these shelters a chance at winning $25,000. Voting begins on the top 25 nominees on Sept. 24, with winners announced Oct. 5. The contest highlights organizations around the country doing the important work of rescuing and finding homes for animals. This marks Rescue Your Rescue's eighth year, and with more than $200,000 in prizes for 8 grand prize winners and 17 finalists, it will be the most impactful yet.

"Supporting pets and animals is one of our key focuses at Tractor Supply, and we know that pets are also near and dear to our customers, making this one of our most popular events," said Nicole Logan, Vice President, Divisional Merchandise Manager at Tractor Supply. "Each year, we are amazed by the turnout and the support we see in our contest nominations and pet supply drive donations. We also love the variety of pets that come visit our stores, building on those local relationships that are core to who we are."

"As pet people, we recognize Tractor Supply's passion and commitment toward animals and giving back," said Peter Margetis, Chief Financial & Strategy Officer at Canidae. "At Canidae, our goal is to bring goodness to pets and their people, and through this partnership, we are proud to do so and work alongside such an exemplary pet destination to support animal shelters across the country."

Tractor Supply will also be supporting animal shelters through a pet supply drive with Miranda Lambert's MuttNation Foundation. During PAW and through Sept. 27, customers can drop off new pet supplies, including food, toys, cleaning and grooming supplies and pet accessories at any Tractor Supply location. Collected items will be donated to local rescues and shelters.

Leashed, friendly animals can visit our stores during PAW alongside their pet parents. Store locations with onsite PetVet clinics, operated by VIP Petcare, which have recently been closed due to COVID-19, will be open for wellness and essential veterinary care needs.
