On Wednesday, March 14, 2012, North Shore Animal League America will launch its 12th annual Tour For Life. Throughout the months of March and April, three Animal League Mobile Rescue and Adoption Units, in partnership with Purina ONE®, will travel simultaneously across the country and partner with more than 100 shelter and rescue groups in 33 cities in 16 states to reinforce the importance of adoption and familiarize communities with their local shelters.
Since its inception in 2001, and as the world’s largest mobile pet adoption event, Tour For Life has saved the lives of tens of thousands of animals across the country.
This year’s Tour For Life spokesperson, singer and songwriter Cyndi Lauper talks about the importance of this life-saving event. “I am excited to join Tour For Life and encourage animal lovers to welcome shelter pets, also known as Mutt-i-grees®, into their homes,” said Lauper. “There are so many beautiful and healthy animals in shelters, making the responsible choice an easy one – animal lovers can show their true colors by adopting a pet and saving a life.”
The tour routes will travel nationwide, covering more than 15,000 miles.
