Three-time GRAMMY award winner and New York Times best-selling author Miranda Lambert and Tractor Supply Company (NASDAQ: TSCO) announce the 2nd annual Relief For Rescues fundraising event. Today through January 21st, Tractor Supply customers can donate at checkout at any Tractor Supply store, online at TractorSupply.com or via the Tractor Supply mobile app. The fund provides critical support to shelter pets during times of natural disaster.
“Helping shelters and shelter pets recover from a natural disaster is part of our MuttNation mission,” said Lambert. “And partnering with Tractor Supply stores across the country for our annual Relief For Rescues fundraiser, along with the support from the tens of thousands of animal-loving people who donate to our cause this week, allows us to provide critical assistance immediately – where it’s needed, when it’s needed.”
Funds raised during the 2023 Relief for Rescues event were distributed after the fires in Hawaii; tornadoes in Texas, Mississippi and Tennessee; and flooding in Ohio, California’s Central Valley and Rhode Island.
“We have always focused on supporting our communities in crisis, so when Miranda and the MuttNation team alerted us to the needs of shelter animals during and after natural disasters, we jumped in,” said Kimberley Gardiner, Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing Officer at Tractor Supply. “Relief for Rescues provides the means for these pets to be shepherded to safety, especially when shelters are unable to. We are so proud to be a part of this important work and are excited to host another Relief for Rescues fundraising event to generate further support.”
This year’s Relief for Rescues fundraiser will coincide with Tractor Supply’s Pet Appreciation Days, which feature special deals on pet food, treats, toys and accessories, including MuttNation pet products, exclusively available at Tractor Supply. Tractor Supply has introduced several new MuttNation items for 2024, including a Southwest-inspired dog tent with travel bag, a cactus waste bag dispenser with a built-in light, a heavy-duty water-and weather-resistant cement dog bowl and more. A percentage of all MuttNation sales go to the MuttNation Foundation to further support its mission to promote and facilitate adoption of shelter pets.

Tractor Supply and MuttNation Foundation have collaborated since 2019 and together support MuttNation’s Mutts Across America program, providing grants to animal shelters nationwide.
