In
partnership with PURINA ONEĀ®, Tour for Life is the world's largest
cooperative national adoption initiative aimed at reinforcing the
importance and advantages of shelter pet adoptions.  The tour was
conceived by North Shore Animal League America - the world's largest
no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization.

With celebrities Dr. Sheldon Rubin, and Andy Avalos - both longtime supporters of the Anti Cruelty Society. Avalas is amazing. Lots of celebs show up when asked for pet events, but Andy REALLY cares about those animals, and the Anti Cruelty Society. Dr. Rubin, well, his career has been devoted to our best friends.

The
event will also includes local celebrities, such as Andy Avalos from Channel 5,

Jill Egan from The Loop
(Chicago's Rock Station), and Jordan from Kiss FM (who could bring Stetson). I was invited as well - and I will be there from noon 'till at least 1 p.m.

 Pet
behaviorist folks can answer all of your behavior questions (hopefully I can do that too!), a pet
intuitive (hopefully I can not do that!), a pet portraiture artist, and you can even bring your own pet to be microchipped a low cost.  And in an
effort to find homes for even more of Chicago's pets, The Anti-Cruelty
Society has also invited Chicago's Animal Care and Control to bring adoptable pets to the event.

Throughout
the months of March and April, Tour For Life 2011 will travel the
length of the United States from North to South and East to West,
helping over 100 shelter and rescue groups to enahnce awareness to their
organizations and to pet adoption.

Of course, the event is free!
