Petsense by Tractor Supply Partners With Puppies and Golf to Support Shelters and Rescues Around the Country
Pet specialty retailer will work with nonprofit to identify one grant recipient each month for remainder of year
Petsense by Tractor Supply and the Tractor Supply Company Foundation announced today a partnership with Puppies and Golf to support no-kill shelters across the country. For the remainder of the year, the pet specialty retailer will work with Puppies and Golf to award a grant to one shelter each month. Petsense will also assist with disaster relief grants for shelters that may have unexpected needs due to natural disasters or medical emergencies.
“No-kill shelters provide a safe place for dogs not welcomed in traditional shelters and rescues,” said Matthew Rubin, general manager and senior vice president at Petsense by Tractor Supply. “We are thrilled to work with Puppies and Golf to help us identify these important shelters so that we can support their efforts and help more families and more dogs enjoy the experience of adoption.”
Sports journalist Amanda Balionis Renner founded Puppies and Golf to facilitate connections between rescue dogs and families who are interested in adopting. The nonprofit supports shelters and rescues as well as organizations that train service dogs for Military Veterans battling PTSD. Since its inception in 2020, Puppies and Golf has donated more than $100,000 to shelters and animal welfare organizations across the country.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Petsense by Tractor Supply to further our mission in supporting shelters and rescues across the country,” said Puppies and Golf President Amanda Renner. “Our hope is that this partnership connects communities to their local rescue organizations in a deeper way. Together, we can all make an impact where it is truly needed.”
Petsense by Tractor Supply kicked off the partnership on September 12 during Puppies and Golf’s Barkin’ Bash celebration in Nashville. The retailer announced that Wags & Walks, which recently opened a no-kill adoption center in Nashville, is the first grant recipient.
