Tractor Supply Co. Donates to Pedigree Foundation
Tractor Supply Co. has donated $50,000 to the Pedigree Foundation to help fund grants for dog shelters and rescue organizations. From December 2017 to February 2018, participating Tractor Supply stores donated $1 for every Pedigree brand purchase as part of a special charitable promotion.
“We are proud to support the Pedigree Foundation in providing financial assistance to shelters and rescue organizations that are dedicated to making sure dogs in need find loving homes,” said Karl Olsen, vice president and divisional merchandise manager at Tractor Supply Co., which has headquarters in Brentwood, Tenn. “Thanks to the generous contributions of our customers, Tractor Supply was able to contribute the maximum donation of $50,000 to help our four-legged friends find the safety, security and homes they deserve.”
Established in 2008, the Pedigree Foundation is a 501(c)(3) private foundation and is committed to finding forever homes for the millions of homeless dogs across America. In the last decade, the Foundation has given more than $6.7 million and awarded nearly 5,000 grants to organizations that are passionate about saving the lives of dogs that would otherwise be lost.
“We are so thankful to Tractor Supply and all of those who participated in this promotion for their commitment to the plight of homeless dogs,” said Bo Segers, Pedigree Foundation president. “This generous donation will allow us to further our mission of helping dogs find forever homes by providing us with additional funds to award more grants to shelters and rescue organizations across the country.”
