BRENTWOOD, Tennessee, June 13, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- This month, more than 1,600 Tractor Supply stores across the country will recognize their community’s pet, animal and livestock owners during Purina Days.

For the fourth year in a row, the rural lifestyle retailer has partnered with Purina in order to celebrate the partnership between families and the animals they raise. From June 14-18, customers will have access to expert advice and best-in-class products for raising a variety of animals, including domestic pets, cattle, horses, rabbits and other livestock.

During the main event on Saturday, June 17, families are invited to visit their local store to interact with adoptable animals and learn more about the joys and responsibilities associated with owning everything from cats and dogs to chickens, rabbits, goats, pigs, horses, and more. Additionally, the store will give away Tractor Supply buckets while supplies last.

“At Tractor Supply, we consider our animals part of the family and we understand the passion and hard work that goes into properly raising them,” said Karl Olsen, divisional merchandise manager at Tractor Supply Company. “This is our opportunity to recognize and thank our customers for dedicating both their time and attention to the well-being of the animals in their care, while also offering advice to the individuals who are just getting started.”

From feed, food and treats to containment and care, Tractor Supply offers a comprehensive selection of products for equine, livestock, pets and small animals.
