TCS store to have Pet Appreciation Week
Area residents who are proud pet owners or would like to be, should mark their calendars for Saturday, September 17, when the Tractor Supply Company store in Van Wert will be celebrating their furry friends for Pet Appreciation Week’s main event.
The main event on September 17 will include pet adoptions, with community groups, samples, giveaways, drawings for gift cards, and other family friendly activities. In addition, deals on pet products, from food and treats to toys and crates, will be featured from September 14-18.
“Pet Appreciation Week is a time when our love for animals really shines,” said Peter Owsley, manager of the Van Wert Tractor Supply store. “It’s an opportunity for us to celebrate the love of pets, find great homes for local adoptable animals, and showcase the community partners and rescues who care for these animals year round.”
In addition to supporting community groups in their work to find good homes for dogs and cats, Pet Appreciation Week, September 14-18, helps raise awareness of the importance of spaying and neutering pets and provide information on proper pet care and nutrition.
Pet Appreciation Week is open to the public — and all leashed, friendly pets — and will take place at Tractor Supply, 1122 S. Shannon St.
Several activities will take place during the main event, including Pet Adoption and Cookout and Bunny Hoppers 4-H group.
Community partners for this year’s Pet Appreciation Week include: Shelter Pets, First Friends Church in Van Wert, and the Bunny Hoppers 4-H Club. All will be on-site from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. September 17.
