North Shore Animal League America’s

Tour for Life ® 2015

Arrives in Boone April 4  

On April 4, from 11 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 the Boone Mall 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.
