Tractor Supply Company has pledged its support to Gulf-area pet and animal organizations impacted by Hurricane Laura.
Tractor Supply will donate a total of $100,000 to facilities in Louisiana and Texas, including shelters, humane societies, animal rescues and more.
Many of the animals were left homeless or stranded by the storm, and the animal organizations caring for them are also grappling with their own cleanup efforts.
The donation will help fund restoration as well as the purchase of pet food, animal feed and products such as beds, crates and cleaning supplies.
“Pets and animals are incredibly important to us at Tractor Supply, and they are often overlooked in the aftermath of a storm like Hurricane Laura,” said Christi Korzekwa, Tractor Supply’s Senior Vice President of Marketing. “With this donation, we hope to assist these organizations as they recover from the devastation of the storm and focus on their important work of caring for animals.”
Tractor Supply has a number of stores in the Rio Grande Valley including San Benito, Weslaco, Edinburg, Mission and Raymondville
