Lexington's Tractor Supply is donating 56 bags of pet food to feed dogs and cats in need of adoption, according to a release.

The company presented the donation to Ruff Love Rescue and the Davidson County Animal Shelter.

"More often than not, animal shelters and rescues depend greatly on food donations to support the pets they take in that await adoption," said Travis Russell, manager of the Tractor Supply store. "Our goal at Tractor Supply is to do our part in helping adoption efforts in our community because we know that pets are more than just dogs and cats, they are family."

In addition to the pet food donation, the Lexington Tractor Supply hosts pet adoption events throughout the year. Visit TSCEventPartners.com or call the store at (336) 243-5980 to learn more about working with Tractor Supply for pet adoption events.
