Tractor Supply Co. in Wilson is hosting pet adoptions, a pet supplies drive and more on Saturday as part of Out Here With Animals, its monthlong event for animals of all kinds and the people who care for them.

From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., community members and their dogs, cats, pigs, goats and more are invited to make their way to the Wilson Tractor Supply store to support local pet adoptions.

“Our team members believe that animals of all kinds are worth celebrating,” said Nicole Killen, manager of the Wilson Tractor Supply. “Out Here With Animals allows us to do just that by providing us with opportunities to do our part in supporting local animal rescue groups.”

Additionally, customers can support the local animal shelter community by participating in Tractor Supply’s pet supplies drive. Happening all month long as part of Out Here With Animals, the retailer is accepting new sealed food, toys, cleaning supplies and other essential pet accessories such as beds, scratching posts, leashes and bowls to be donated to Wilson rescues and shelters.

“The supplies drive is an important component to Out Here With Animals because it allows our customers who don’t have the ability to adopt to still give back in a much-needed way,” Killen said.

Wilson community members and their leashed, friendly animals are invited to check out Tractor Supply’s monthlong Out Here with Animals events at 2380 Forest Hills Road W. Contact the store at 252-237-4392 for more information or details about participating in Saturday’s pet adoptions.
