The Tractor Supply Co. store in Boone is donating 66 bags of pet food to feed dogs and cats in need of adoption.

"More often than not, animal shelters and rescues depend greatly on food donations to support the pets they take in that await adoption," said Christy Owens, manager of the Boone Tractor Supply store. "Our goal at Tractor Supply is to do our part in helping adoption efforts in our community because we know that pets are more than just dogs and cats, they are family."

Tractor Supply presented the pet food donation to the Watauga County Humane Society.

In addition to the pet food donation, the Boone Tractor Supply hosts pet adoption events throughout the year. Visit TSCEventPartners.com or call the store at 828-264-9999 to learn more about working with Tractor Supply for pet adoption events.
