Pet Appreciation Week


On September 20, 2014 (Saturday), the Nacogdoches location of Tractor Supply Store will be hosting a full day of fun events and activities for families and pets in honor of their annual Pet Appreciation Week. Pet adoptions will be available, as well as info about pet nutirition, discounts on pet food and other supplies and free items to be given away (while supplies last).

Pet awareness is an important topic for all communities, but especially in Nacogdoches where we have one of the very highest rates of stray cat problems in the entire state and nation, amazingly enough.

There are simply not enough people willing to accept more pets into their homes to meet the great need for adoption at the Nacogdoches Animal Shelter. They also need volunteers to help care for the animals and for people to donate supplies. Find out more about their services here and visit their Facebook page here.

For those who are specifically interested in cats and the local stray cat problems, we have the O’Malley Alley Cat organization with that focus. This is a well-established group that has been helping stray cats locally for many years. Volunteers and donated supplies are always welcome! Visit their main site here.

Just how many unwanted cats are out there? MILLIONS!
