Tractor Supply Company’s Pet Appreciation Week 2012
What is happening?
Find homes for your adoptable pets at Tractor Supply Company stores August 18 during the second annual Pet Appreciation Week celebration. Petfinder has partnered with TSC to match stores with adoption organizations. At last year’s PAW event, more than 3,000 pets found homes nationwide and more than 1,300 agencies participated. Sign up today!
What is involved?
Display space will be provided: A single table with covering and event graphics will be provided. You are welcome to bring materials about your organization and animals available, collect donations, and are strongly encouraged to bring adoptable pets with you on site. Again, any special needs and details should be worked out before the event with the store manager. If multiple agencies attend a single store, additional tables/chairs may be needed.
Giveaways to new parents will be provided: Back by popular demand, adoption booklets (editorial and coupons) from TSC and its vendor partners will be provided. If these are not used for adoptions at the event, the booklets can return with the agency for use on subsequent adoptions.
Present your agency, Petfinder.com, and Tractor Supply Co. in a professional manner.

Immediately upon completing your registration, a confirmation email will be sent to you and the store manager. At that time, you will need to make contact with the manager and work out details for your event. Some stores may have space or other restrictions that may limit the ability to accommodate multiple groups. Therefore you must confirm details and scheduling with the store manager.
Frequently Asked Questions
What if the location I want already has an agency scheduled? If there are other area locations with no agency registered, it is strongly preferred that you cover another location. If all area locations are covered, most TSC’s should be able to accommodate multiple agencies. It will be up to you, the TSC manager and the other agency contact to reach an agreement.
Are we allowed to bring animals on site? Yes! We strongly encourage you to bring animals needing new homes. In rare situations, a landlord agreement or local ordinance may demand otherwise. Your local TSC manager can advise.
Are we allowed to solicit donations or raise money? Yes, as long as you have cleared this with the TSC store manager and the activity is not otherwise prohibited.
Will we be given space inside or outside of the store? This will vary by location. TSC will work to accommodate your agency as best as we can. Please work with your local store manager.
*SPECIAL NOTE: In addition to adoption outreach, Tractor Supply is very interested in hosting Rabies Vaccination clinics and related services. If your organization or a close veterinarian partner is involved in rabies outreach, spay/neutering, mobile clinics, micro-chipping services, etc., please be sure to discuss these opportunities with your TSC store manager. TSC is very open to these opportunities and veterinarians partnering with TSC on these efforts have historically found tremendous results and business growth from the relationships.
