Tractor Supply Company, the largest rural lifestyle retailer in the United States, has pledged its support to Gulf-area pet and animal organizations impacted by Hurricane Laura. Tractor Supply will donate a total of $100,000 to facilities in Louisiana and Texas, including shelters, humane societies, animal rescues and more.
Hurricane Laura made landfall on August 27, sustaining winds around 150 mph. The strong wind gusts resulted in widespread structural damage to homes and businesses. As pets and animals are left homeless or stranded, the animal organizations tasked with caring for them are also grappling with their own cleanup efforts. Tractor Supply's donation will assist with the cost of restoration as well as the purchase of pet food, animal feed and products such as beds, crates and cleaning supplies.
"Pets and animals are incredibly important to us at Tractor Supply, and they are often overlooked in the aftermath of a storm like Hurricane Laura," said Christi Korzekwa, Tractor Supply's Senior Vice President of Marketing. "With this donation, we hope to assist these organizations as they recover from the devastation of the storm and focus on their important work of caring for animals."
Tractor Supply stores in the following affected communities have identified animal organizations to receive funds:
New Iberia, LA
Lake Charles, LA
Port Arthur, TX
