Santa Paws is coming to town… Or should we say Miranda Lambert is coming to Tractor Supply to buy all the good little dogs and cats holiday treats. Miranda Lambert and Tractor Supply Company teamed up to start the season off right for animal shelters, both locally and nationwide.
Early this month, Miranda visited the Tractor Supply store in Franklin, TN, purchased thousands of dollars of pet food, toys and supplies and made surprise stops at three local shelters: Williamson County Animal Center, Metro Nashville Animal Care & Control and Nashville Humane Association.
Miranda said, “This time of year, it’s so important to remember shelter animals everywhere. These three shelters have been important local partners to MuttNation over the past several years, and we all know how tough it’s been for them. I just wanted show my appreciation.”
Tractor Supply Company then surprised Miranda and MuttNation by spreading the joy nationwide, giving $1,000 gift cards to 10 shelters and rescues that help senior pets and/or pets with special needs.
TSC’s Nicole Logan, Vice President of Divisional Merchandise Management, said, “MuttNation’s Love Harder campaign to raise awareness for dogs that are less frequently adopted has been an inspiration to all of us at Tractor Supply. We share Miranda’s affection for all shelter animals and wanted to support her efforts during this special time of year.”
The 10 shelters receiving $1,000 Tractor Supply gift cards are: Blind Dog Rescue Alliance (Boothwyn, PA), Deaf Dogs Rock (Salem VA), Grey Muzzle (Raleigh, NC), Heath’s Haven Rescue (Post Falls, ID), Muttville Senior Dog Rescue (San Francisco, CA), Old Friends Senior Dog Sanctuary (Mt. Juliet, TN), Pets With Disabilities (Frederick, MD), Rolling Dog Farm (Lancaster, NH), The Sanctuary For Senior Dogs (Cleveland, OH) and Vintage Paws (Sarasota, FL).
Together, MuttNation Foundation and Tractor Supply Company ask everyone to consider supporting their local animal shelter by adopting, fostering or volunteering throughout the year — and to consider a special gift for the shelter pets during the holiday season.
