The Humane Society of Madison County, 2020 Plain City-Georgesville Road, West Jefferson, is hosting North Shore Animal League’s Tour for Life from noon to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 28.
North Shore Animal League America, the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization, is once again traveling across the country in their mobile units as part of a nationwide adoption event.
Now in their 18th year, they are teaming up with the Humane Society of Madison County to help find homes for animals in need.
The public is encouraged to come out to meet the adoptable pets and talk to representatives from Stop Puppy Mills Ohio and Pet FBI.
Stop Puppy Mills Ohio is a grassroots campaign working to ensure the humane treatment of dogs in commercial breeding facilities. According to their website, thousands of dogs are suffering in puppy mills throughout Ohio. Mother dogs are forced to breed continuously in factory-like conditions and denied basic care. Representatives of the campaign will be on hand at 5 p.m. to collect signatures and explain more about the proposed bill.
Representatives from Pet FBI will be at the event to explain the advantages of using Pet FBI services — a search engine for people trying to find their lost pets, or for people that have found pets and are looking for the owners.
Also attending the event will be Ashley Raylyn with her mobile clothing boutique, LuLaRue. She will be donating a part of every sale to the shelter.
Smoothie King of Hilliard will also be selling smoothies, and a portion of drink proceeds will also being given to the shelter.
For the kids, clowns will be making balloon animals from noon to 2 p.m., and face painting will take place from 3:30-6 p.m.
Visitors can meet London Police K-9 Ygor, West Jefferson K-9 Arc, Madison County Sheriff K-9 Even and Plain City K-9 at various times throughout the event.
And of course, dogs, cats and kittens will be on site looking for forever homes.
