North Shore Animal League America, a no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization based in Port Washington, N.Y., will begin its 2006 Tour for Life on March 29. North Shore Animal League America says it began its Tour for Life in 2001 as an initiative with animal shelters to reinforce the importance and advantages of adopting shelter cats and dogs.

Two of the Leagues Mobile Adoption Units will travel two routes simultaneously. Soul singer Joss Stone and NASCAR driver Greg Biffle have been named spokespersons to help promote the tour.

This lifesaving tour is really important to me, Stone said. It is an honor working with North Shore Animal League America on Tour for Life to help save pets across America.

For many homeless pets it is a race of life and death to find new homes as they wait at shelters for that special someone, Biffle said. I am so proud to work with North Shore Animal League America on Tour for Life to raise awareness of shelter dogs and cats.
