Pet adoption clinic to be held

GLOVERSVILLE — Local people and their pets are invited to spend the day at the Tractor Supply Co. Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the annual Out Here with Animals pet adoption event.

Throughout the month of August, the Tractor Supply Co. shows its love for animals of all shapes and sizes by providing information on proper animal care and collecting donated pet supplies and accessories for local animal shelters.

On Saturday the city Tractor Supply Co. location will help local animals find great homes by holding a pet adoption event with members of the Johnstown Animal Shelter and the Regional Animal Shelter on hand with cats and dogs available for adoption.

“Tractor Supply is about life out here,” local Tractor Supply Co. store manager Tom Francisco said Tuesday. “That includes animals, farming and family. We feel that pets are a part of that and we don’t want to see any animals go uncared for.”

Francisco said the store regularly makes donations of supplies to area shelters and will be accepting donations from the public through the end of the month of new sealed food, toys, cleaning supplies and other pet accessories such as beds, scratching posts, leashes and bowls.

“It’s just a way we can help out with our local adoption agencies,” Francisco said.

Community members are invited to visit the store with their dogs, cats, pigs, goats and more on Saturday to receive expert advice on animal care and to see some of the latest pet products available.

“Everybody likes to show off their pets,” Francisco said.

The weekly PetVet Clinic will be open during the event from 9:30 to 11 a.m. with state licensed veterinarians providing wellness and preventive care for animals without appointment. The mobile clinic also offers vaccinations and microchipping for dogs and cats.

Along with events that celebrate and support pets, Tractor Supply will feature a sale on premium products for pets, small animals and livestock, including items necessary for their health, care, growth and containment from now through Sunday.

The Tractor Supply Co. located at 27 Arterial Plaza will host its annual Out Here with Animals pet adoption event Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Local shelters will be on hand with cats and dogs available for adoption.

The event is open to the public and area residents are invited to visit the store with their leashed and friendly pets.
