The North Shore Animal League America’s 2013 Tour For Life has partnered with the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter for a special mobile adoption event at the University Mall today until 7pm!


In partnership with PURINA ONE®, Tour for Life is the world’s largest cooperative mobile pet adoption initiative 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 the Tuscaloosa Metro Animal Shelter. Alabama Humane Society and Alabama SPCA will also be participating in the event that will include plenty of activities including an appearance by the University of Alabama Mascot Big Al! 


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 51 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 – thirteen years ago and is responsible for placing thousands of pets into loving and permanent homes.  Tour For Life 2012 saved the lives of nearly 1600 animals across the country.



Tour For Life's presenting sponsor is Purina ONE® pet food brand.  The Tour is also supported by The Mutt-i-grees Curriculum.  For more information on Tour For Life 2013 visit
