Wynonna Named National Spokesperson
Beginning Saturday, March 19th, North Shore Animal League America, in partnership with Purina®, will launch its annual national cooperative life-saving adoption event, Tour For Life. Two Mobile Adoption Units will travel simultaneously across the country and partnering with more than 100 shelter and rescue groups in 37 cities in 19 states. These “shelters on wheels” will cover over 13,000 miles and help save the lives of thousands of animals across the country through humane education and mobile adoption events.
This year NSALA - the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization - is pleased to announce Wynonna Judd as national spokesperson for its 11th annual Tour for Life. The Tour aligns perfectly with the country music icon’s passion for animals, “My pets have always been a very important part of my life. They are loyal, non-judgmental and offer unconditional love. Being the spokesperson for Tour For Life gives me an opportunity to encourage other Americans to share the same happiness.” She adds, “When considering a new family member, please stop by a local shelter and rescue a homeless pet, they will be eternally grateful to you for saving their life.”
Over the past decade, Tour for Life has helped place hundreds of thousands of homeless animals with loving families throughout the country. The month-long national initiative promotes the advantages of adopting shelter animals and the significance of saving a life.
Tour For Life's presenting sponsors are Purina ONE® brand Dog and Cat Food; the Tour is also supported by The American Mutt-i-grees® Club. For more information on Tour For Life visit www.AnimalLeague.org/TourforLife2011.
