Throughout the months of March and April, Tour For Life will travel the length of the United States from north to south and east to west, helping over 100 shelter and rescue groups bring awareness to their organizations and find homes for orphaned pets in their care. 

The tour was conceived by North Shore Animal League America, the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization, 12 years ago and is responsible for placing thousands of pets into loving and permanent homes.
