North Shore Animal League America, in partnership with Purina ONE brand pet food, will make the final stop of its annual national cooperative life-saving adoption event, Tour For Life, with a Grand Finale celebration at Times Square Pedestrian Plaza (West 46th & 47th St. & Broadway) on Friday, May 10, 2013 beginning at 11 a.m. with dozens of adoptable animals.
Working with more than 100 shelter and rescue groups in 51 cities in 26 states, these “shelters on wheels” covered over 17,000 miles and helped save the lives of over 2,000 animals across the country through humane education and mobile adoption events.
Since its inception in 2001, and as the world’s largest mobile pet adoption event, Tour For Life’s mission is not only to save as many lives as possible but also to reinforce the importance of adoption and familiarize communities with their local shelters.
“I have been honored to act as spokesperson for this life-saving, national event,” said Tour For Life 2013 Spokesperson, Actress Renee Felice Smith of CBS’s NCIS: Los Angeles. “The plight of the shelter pet, also known as a Mutt-i-gree, is one that I hold close to my heart, and events such as Tour For Life remind us of the unchanging love animals bring to our lives!”
Tour For Life is made possible through the generosity of Presenting Sponsor Purina ONE and Supporting Sponsor the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum. For more information on Tour For Life, visit www.AnimalLeague.org.
