On April 13, from 1 to 4 pm, Watauga Humane Society is hosting North Shore Animal League’s Tour for Life event, the “World’s Largest Mobile Adoption Event,” at Walmart Supercenter in Boone, North Carolina. Shelters and rescues from across our region will be there to adopt out animals and raise money for animal welfare. This is a great chance to find your new best buddy and support an important cause. In partnership with Purina, Tour for Life is the largest national adoption initiative aimed at reinforcing the advantages and importance of shelter pet adoptions. See below for a list of participating shelters and rescues.
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. Tour for Life is a great chance to give your pet an inexpensive health and safety boost, by attending the low cost rabies clinic, hosted by Animal Hospital of Boone, for $8 per 1 year vaccine and $10 per three year vaccine. Let Queeny’s Pet Palace trim your pet’s toenails for $5, and get a microchip for your pet for only $25, thanks to Mast Mobile Pet Care & Acupuncture. You can also visit the Red Cross Pet First Aid booth for some tips and tricks about handling animal emergencies. Did you know there is an app for that?
