“With over 8,600 nominations this year, it was extremely difficult to narrow it down to ten finalists,” said Phil Reiter, vice president of national and local marketing at Tractor Supply. “These Rescue Your Rescue finalists demonstrate excellent care and compassion toward the animals they rescue, and Tractor Supply is honored to support these organizations.”

In addition to the Rescue Your Rescue contest, Tractor Supply Company showcased its passion for animals by hosting its annual Out Here with Animals event to recognize pets, animals and the people who love and care for them. The event featured pet adoptions, pet treat tastings and special deals and giveaways to celebrate pets of all kinds.

Tractor Supply also partnered with Miranda Lambert’s MuttNation Foundation to host a pet supplies drive in support of local animal shelters across the country. Throughout the Out Here with Animals celebration, customers have donated new and sealed food, toys, cleaning and grooming supplies and other pet accessories including beds, leashes and bowls. The monthlong donation drive concluded with a nationwide pet adoption event on Saturday, Aug. 24. All collected items will be donated to nearby rescues and shelters.
