The North Shore Animal League's cross-country tour promoting shelter adoptions hits Houston March 29 for an event showcasing furry friends available at Citizens for Animal Protection.
Adoption fees will be waived, plus there's also a bake sale, a silent auction, and a half-off clothes sale at CAP's store. (We're pretty sure means 50 percent off the price, not that people will be half-dressed. But hey, it'll be fun either way).
The League tells us in a press release that "From the beginning of March to mid-May, Tour For Life will travel the length of the United States from north to south and east to west in four 'shelters on wheels,' helping shelter and rescue groups in 52 cities and 26 states bring awareness to their organizations and find homes for the adorable adoptable animals in their care."
The tour is sponsored by Purina ONE pet food brand, and the CAP event, at 17555 Katy Freeway, runs from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Go check it out!
