On Saturday, Aug. 24, Tractor Supply Company in Wharton and El Campo will host two animal adoptions, a pet supplies drive and more during their Out Here with Animals celebration, which is a month-long event that recognizes pets, animals and the people who care for them. 

For El Campo, this has been an annual event; for Wharton, it is the first time since opening for business this spring.

The events will be simultaneous from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

According to Tractor Supply Company, as part of the pet-centric happenings, animal lovers will have the opportunity to engage with team members about pet and animal care while supporting local rescue groups that are looking to find a safe home for animals in need.  

“Tractor Supply celebrates pets and animals of all shapes and sizes year-round, and with our annual Out Here with Animals event, we get to spotlight our customers, their pets and the local rescue groups that play an integral role in the El Campo community,” said Doug Wishert, manager of El Campo Tractor Supply. 

Added Mishelle Bronikowski, of Wharton’s store: “Our team looks forward to this event every year, and we can’t wait to welcome our loyal customers and their pets and animals into the El Campo store for pet treat tastings, giveaways and more.” 

In addition to the adoptions, customers will have the opportunity to enjoy a bake sale.

Customers can also 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, Tractor Supply 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 El Campo rescues and shelters.

Wharton County S.P.O.T. will be on site at the Wharton location, 115 East Boling Highway.
