Thanks to Tractor Supply Company®, I played Santa Paws and gave a Howliday Gift Basket to Humane CNY, the rescue we adopted Theo from. Tractor Supply Company is very supportive of shelter animals and gave me a $100 gift card to shop for a shelter or pet family in need.
Tractor Supply Company has a wide selection of pet products, including dog food, flea and tick preventative, collars, leashes, dog beds, crates, supplements, clickers, and various toys. I decided to go with toys so that I could feel like Santa Paws. I know that the rescue does a great job socializing the dogs and taking them outside for walks and play dates, but I thought while the pups are waiting for their new homes, playing with a toy would help the time go more quickly.
While there is a large selection of toys at TSC, I decided to go with Kongs because they are made in the USA, durable, and my dogs love them!
A lot of the fun of a Kong is chasing, catching, and chewing it, but I think the best part for my dogs is the treats we put inside one. It was an easy decision to buy Dogsbutter made by Dog for Dog®. Since it is made specifically for dogs, you never have to worry that the manufacturers will add xylitol to it!
Dog for Dog is another made in the USA product that we think is a safe and healthy choice. Just like Tractor Supply, Dog For Dog is a compassionate company. Dog For Dog gives back to dogs in need with every purchase.
I bought a few lengths of rope that an employee cut for me. Instead of just selling me a 5-foot section of rope, Stewart cut it into three lengths that saved me a ton of time. I’m not sure how long it would have taken me to saw through the rope on my own. I just tied a couple of knots with the rope to make three simple tug toys.
A metal bucket was the perfect choice to hold the toys and treats. We added some stickers that I had to make it a little more fun for the humans.
Here are just a few of the items that Tractor Supply Company carries for dogs.
I considered buying some big bags of dog food because I know that rescues always need food donations. Tractor Supply is the exclusive distributor of the affordable, premium dog food 4health®.
TSC is very supportive of shelters, including holding adoption events in stores, hosting fundraisers at the local level, and some stores offer low-cost veterinary clinics.
Tractor Supply Company isn’t just for farmers! I found one more great bonus item that I had to buy for an easy DIY gift. I will be sharing it soon!
Do you have a specific thing that you like to donate to shelters? I had a lot of playing Santa Paws; thank you, Tractor Supply Company!
