This year NSALA – the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization – is pleased to announce Wynonna Judd as national spokesperson for its 11th annual Tour for Life. The Tour aligns perfectly with the country music icon’s passion for animals, “My pets have always been a very important part of my life. They are loyal, non-judgmental and offer unconditional love. Being the spokesperson for Tour For Life gives me an opportunity to encourage other Americans to share the same happiness.” She adds, “When considering a new family member, please stop by a local shelter and rescue a homeless pet, they will be eternally grateful to you for saving their life.”
Over the past decade, Tour for Life has helped place hundreds of thousands of homeless animals with loving families throughout the country. The month-long national initiative promotes the advantages of adopting shelter animals and the significance of saving a life.
