World's Largest Mobile Pet Adoption Event comes to Conway

Conway, AR (NSALA) – North Shore Animal League America’s 2014 Tour For Life – the world’s largest national cooperative life-saving mobile pet adoption event – will arrive in Conway, AR to partner with Maumelle Friends of the Animals for a special life-saving event at Petsmart, 3480 Landers Road, North Little Rock, AR 72117 on Friday, April 4, 2014 beginning at 11 AM – 4 PM.

In partnership with PURINA ONE®, Tour for Life is aimed at reinforcing the importance and advantages of shelter pet adoptions and familiarizing communities with their local shelter.  

In addition to having adoptable shelter dogs, cats, puppies and kittens -- also known as Mutt-i-grees® -- the event will also offer information on the benefits of adopting shelter pets, behavioral education, and special services available to pet owners at Maumelle Friends of the Animals.  Facepainting will be available for all attendees, along with spay/neuter raffles! Also, there will be a bake sale fundraiser, so make sure to come with a sweet tooth!

From the beginning of March to mid-May, Tour For Life will travel the length of the United States from North to South and East to West in four “shelters on wheels”, helping shelter and rescue groups, in 52 cities and 26 states bring awareness to their organizations and find homes for the adorable adoptable animals in their care. 

The tour was conceived by Animal League America – the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization – fourteen years ago and is responsible for placing tens of thousands of pets into loving and permanent homes.  Last year, Tour For Life 2013 saved the lives of over 2,000 animals across the country.

Tour For Life's presenting sponsor is Purina ONE® pet food brand.  For more information on Tour For Life 2014 visit www.AnimalLeague.org/TourForLife2014.
