Local manager makes habit of helping community

The Tractor Supply Company store in Cassville recently donated 38 bags of pet food to the Haven of the Ozarks Animal Sanctuary to help feed local dogs and cats in need of adoption.

"More often than not, animal shelters and rescues depend greatly on food donations to support the pets they take in that await adoption," said Bob McDonald, manager of the Cassville 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."

McDonald has also donated to other location organizations, such as the Cassville FFA Chapter, giving birdfeeders and bird seed to the group. He hosts a Farmers Market in his parking lot every Saturday during the spring months, hosts events that showcase local artisans and hosts animal adoption events throughout the year.

The way McDonald sees it, though, it's just part of being a good steward of his community.

"We just do it because it's the right thing to do," he said. "We're all about the community."

The store is one of 1,685 in 49 states across the country, and offers products that support rural lifestyles, and the needs of farmers and ranchers, tradesmen and small businesses. The company offers food and health care supplies for livestock, pet and small animals, hardware, truck, towing and tool products, seasonal products, lawn and garden items, power equipment, gifts and toys, work/recreational clothing and footwear and maintenance products for agricultural and rural use.
