Tractor Supply Company Teams up With DOG for DOG® and Begins Carrying Select Line of Treats in Retail Locations Nationwide

BRENTWOOD, TN--(Marketwired - October 20, 2015) - DOG for DOG® pet treats are now available in Tractor Supply Company stores nationwide. Tractor Supply Company (NASDAQ: TSCO), the largest rural lifestyle retail store chain in the United States, will carry a select line of DOG for DOG natural ingredient, made-in-America treats.

DOG for DOG®, a mission-based dog food company, started a movement to help dogs in need. The company's BUY ONE, GIVE ONE business model has made a major impact in both the pet industry and in the lives of homeless dogs across the country. Its mission is to feed dogs in rescues and shelters by donating food every time a purchase is made. DOG for DOG's partnership with Tractor Supply Company will feed even more animals in need and help put an end to pet homelessness by expanding the treat line to consumers in new rural markets.

"Tractor Supply's partnership with DOG for DOG aligns perfectly with the passion our customers show for the animals in their care," said Seth Estep, vice president divisional merchandise manager at Tractor Supply Company. "We are confident the pet owners who rely on any one of Tractor Supply's 1,400+ stores will embrace DOG for DOG's mission and their pets will enjoy the natural, high-quality ingredients of their dog treats."

Rocky Kanaka, founder and CEO of DOG for DOG®, said, "It is because of partnerships with companies like Tractor Supply, who have the same vision as we do that we are able to turn a dream into a reality of helping feed the thousands of homeless animals in shelters and rescues across the country. We are so excited to have them as official DOG for DOG® partners."
