On Wednesday, March 14, 2012, North Shore Animal League America launched its 12th annual Tour for Life® in partnership with WE tv. Throughout the months of March and April, three Animal League Mobile Rescue and Adoption Units 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.
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.”
