Largest mobile pet adoption comes to SoCal

The largest mobile pet adoption event takes place this weekend in Burbank, and we all have some adorable animals looking for a forever home.

Joining us is Matthew Carroll from the North Shore Animal League, and Lisette Rojo from the Burbank Animal Shelter.

The Burbank Animal Shelter joins North Shore Animal League America’s 2017 Tour For Life – the world’s largest national cooperative life-saving mobile pet adoption event - sponsored by Purina.  The event features adoptable dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, and there will be a goody bag with every approved adoption and Purina® giveaways for all attendees.

In addition students from an area school, Fenton Charter Leadership Academy, will also be in attendance with arts and crafts that will be available for all attendees as well as to help raise awareness about the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum® programs that teach social and emotional learning skills with the use of shelter pets.

From the beginning of March to the end of April, Tour For Life™ will travel throughout the United States from North to South and East to West in four “shelters on wheels” Mobile Pet Adoption Units helping shelter and rescue groups in 54 cities and towns in 32 states, over 20,000 miles to generate more awareness of their organizations and find homes for the adorable, adoptable animals in their care.
