NORTH LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (April 20, 2013) - A national cooperative life-saving adoption event arrives in North Little Rock to partner with the North Little Rock Animal Shelter for a special mobile adoption event today, April 20.
Tour for Life is the world's largest cooperative mobile pet adoption initiative, aimed at reinforcing the importance and advantage of shelter pet adoptions and familiarizing communities with their local shelter.
From 11 a.m. to 5 p.m., anyone looking for a new four-legged friend is encouraged to stop by the Lakewood Shopping Center. Free microchipping and a rabies shot will be given with each adoption. There will also be raffles, pet care information, dog training tips, demos and more.
This year's Tour For Life will stop in 51 cities in 26 states, plus Washington D.C. to promote the life-saving choice to adopt.
Last year's Tour for Life helped find homes for over 1,500 animals across the country.
