North Shore Animal League America’s Tour for Life 2011 will arrive Saturday, April 1, in New Orleans to partner with the Louisiana SPCA for a special mobile adoption event at Clearview Mall.
In partnership with Purina ONE, Tour for Life is the world’s largest cooperative national adoption initiative aimed at promoting shelter pet adoptions. Throughout March and April, Tour for Life 2011 will travel across the United States to help more than 100 shelter and rescue groups bring awareness to their organizations and find homes for orphaned pets in their care.
The tour was conceived 11 years ago by North Shore Animal League America, the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization. It is responsible for placing thousands of pets into loving and permanent homes.
“As a pet owner, I know the love that animals bring into our lives and homes,” said country singer Wynonna Judd, Tour for Life 2011 spokesperson. “I’m proud to participate in Tour for Life and want to encourage Americans who are considering adding a pet to their families to visit their local shelter or stop by one of our events and rescue a homeless pet.”
Nine local shelters and rescue groups will be participating in this adoption event. In addition to featuring adoptable shelter cats, dogs, kittens and puppies, the event will offer information on the benefits of adopting shelter pets, behavioral education, and special services available to pet owners at the Louisiana SPCA .
