Tractor Supply Co. ~ It's Not Just For Farmers #TractorSupply

This post is sponsored by Tractor Supply Company and the BlogPaws® Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am being compensated for helping spread the word about Tractor Supply Company, but Barking from the bayou/mkclinton.com only share information we feel is relevant to our readers. Tractor Supply is not responsible for the content of this article.

     If a farmer is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear Tractor Supply Co.®, then you need to think again! Sure, it has great farm supplies but they also carry an extensive line of pet products. You can find everything that you need to keep your dog or cat healthy and happy. That includes an assortment of toys and training devices. It is the perfect place for money-conscience Santa shoppers to check off their pet’s entire wish list.

   Thanks to the generosity of Tractor Supply, I was recently able to visit the local TSC store and purchase items for my favorite rescue. Their Animal Rescue Outreach philanthropy doesn’t stop there. Each year they have a Social Media contest that awards $25,000 in grants to 10 deserving organizations. You can often find rescue groups hosting adoption events and fundraisers at neighborhood Tractor Supply stores. They love helping animals. I love supporting businesses that support animal rescues.

   A select number of locations provide a low-cost, walk-in clinic through PetVet Clinics. You can save up to 70% off the cost of yearly vaccinations for your dog or cat. Their state licensed veterinarians will administer high-quality vaccines and they never charge an office fee. You don’t even need an appointment! Has the cost of microchipping kept you from getting your pet chipped? PetVet offers the procedure for only $15. You can find an in-store clinic near you by visiting the PetVet page.

   When we entered the doors, I was like a kid in a candy store! We passed by an array of kennels and crates then through the leashes, training equipment, and bowls before we entered the overflowing food aisle! You can find all the top brands for sale. Tractor Supply’s dog food, 4Health™ brand is made in the U.S.A. exclusively for them. It’s an affordable, premium-quality dog and cat food that comes in a variety of recipes. I stocked up on cans of puppy and senior formulas as well as grain-free for sensitive tummies. Our shelter prefers the canned food, but it is also available in dry. While shopping, I was sure to fetch some of the 4Health Sandwich-Style Beef and Cheese treats.  Since I was on a roll, I picked up the Chicken Sticks with Bacon Filling too! You’ll find 4Health Hip and Joint or Skin and Coat biscuits at very reasonable prices.

   It wasn’t hard to select the food and treats for the shelter, but I wanted to add a little pizazz to the shelter’s gift. When I spied the DogForDog® DogsButter, it was the perfect touch. Most dogs aren’t thrilled to take pills but if you coat them with peanut butter, that’s a different story! DogForDog uses healthy ingredients such as coconut, peanuts, and flaxseed. It works great for filling hollow toys and making pup-sicles. You’ll even be helping another shelter when you buy a jar. For every purchase of DogForDog butter or treats, the company makes a donation to a shelter.

   After choosing all of the cool things that I was going to take to the Humane Society of Northwest Louisiana, it was time to look for a container. TSC has a variety of buckets, baskets and other products that would have worked. Deciding the best container would be something the rescue could use, I selected a large metal tub that would hold everything. It’d be great to convert into a watering station or to wash a dog.

   When I got home, I used some grosgrain ribbon to make a bow and made a card for the Humane Society of NW Louisiana. It turned out really cute and I topped off with a TSC flying disc. I thank Tractor Supply Co. for making this donation possible. Everyone at the HSNWLA was excited to receive such a wonderful gift. That includes Perdita, the sweet Dalmatian that is looking for her forever home.

  25. I love what you did for your shelter! We love our Tractor Supply. I go there for pet supplies as well as garden supplies. They have so much good stuff (I've even bought clothes there!), and excellent prices as well. They just opened another one in our area, closer than the first one, and I can't wait to go check it out! Oh, and one of the first times I went there, they were hosting a local rescue with adoptable dogs - I was so impressed with that!

  26. I can't wait to do our visit to Tractor Supply Co. I'm timing it for when they have an adoption event. Should be fun. I know I'm going to get some of that dog butter -- maybe for my pups as well.
