Petsense by Tractor Supply will partner with local shelters nationwide to host their semi-annual National Spring Adoptathon on April 27 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Petsense by Tractor Supply is deeply passionate about giving shelter pets the second chance they deserve. Through the Spring Adoptathon, the company invites local organizations into its stores to help find forever homes for adoptable dogs and cats.

“Adopting a pet of your own isn’t just about finding a furry friend; rather, they nurture our well-being through unconditional love and can significantly enhance our mental health,” said Matthew Rubin, divisional president of Petsense by Tractor Supply. “That’s why we’re excited to bring back our Adoptathon this spring to help and spotlight these deserving pets and connect them to loving, forever homes.”

According to the ASPCA, approximately 6.5 million animals enter shelters annually nationally, but only about one-half of those animals get adopted. Through the Adoptathon event and beyond, Petsense by Tractor Supply is “determined to tackle this situation across the U.S. and save as many shelter animal lives as possible.”

Customers who attend the Adoptathon can expect the following:

  • Local animal shelters and rescue groups on site with dogs and cats eligible for adoption;
  • Other adoptable small and specialty animals at certain stores; and
  • Perks for those who adopt animals include a goody bag of giveaways and several coupons to save on supplies, grooming and food as a new pet parent.

For cat adoption services year-round, Petsense by Tractor Supply partners with local rescues and shelters to re-home thousands of cats in its in-store SavAPet centers. To date, they have saved “over 150,000 pet lives through adoption. 

Adoption events vary by location. Contact your local Petsense by Tractor Supply store for more details.
