If your backyard is home to a pet pig, dog, cat or goat, mark your calendar. The McPherson Tractor Supply Company is welcoming all leashed, friendly animals to visit the store during Pet Appreciation Week Sept. 13-17.

Pet Appreciation Week, the retailer’s biggest pet food and supply sale of the year, will kick off with a pet supply drive to support local pet and animal groups that partner with the store. From Sept. 13-17, customers can drop off new, sealed food, toys, cleaning supplies and other essential pet accessories such as beds, scratching posts, leashes and bowls to be donated to local rescues and shelters in the community.

On Sept. 16, McPherson Tractor Supply will host a Pet Appreciation Week community event featuring pet adoptions, demonstrations on pet nutrition and a free Greenies™ dental dog treat for customers while supplies last. This year’s Pet Appreciation Week community event will also include:

— McPherson Animal Shelter: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

— McPherson County Humane Society: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

— K-9 Karma Animal Advocates (Rescue): 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Pet Appreciation Week, an annual celebration of animals and the families who care for them, is open to the public and leashed pets. Tractor Supply stores offer a full line of products for pets, small animals and livestock, including items necessary for their health, care, growth and containment.
