Adoption Event at Tractor Supply a Success!

On Saturday, March 8, a group of dedicated Giles County Animal Rescue volunteers brought some cute and furry friends — 8 dogs and a cat — to the grand opening of the Tractor Supply store in Pearisburg. By the end of this day-long adoption event, several dogs had found their forever homes. Volunteers from GCAR and Luv4Hounds set up tables, made available information about spay/neuter practices, provided face painting for children, and let the adoptable animals visit with the store’s customers. The event would not have been possible, GCAR President Christine Link-Owens said, without the kindness of Tractor Supply management, who moved their own inventory around to make room for the GCAR tables and animal’s crates. “Three cheers to Tractor Supply for supporting animal rescue groups such as ours,” Link-Owens added. She also extended her thanks to the numerous volunteers who took shifts throughout the day. “It shows what a great team we have right now,” she said. GCAR was able to connect with many community members during this event, and several rescue groups found homes for some wonderful pets.
