Animal shelters in the U.S. are preparing to host the mobile cooperative adoption event as North Shore Animal League America, a no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization, gets ready for its 14th annual Tour For Life.
Beginning March 12 through May 16, this mobile pet adoption tour will make its way across the country, stopping in 52 U.S. cities and 26 states, plus Washington D.C., and cover more than 17,000 miles.
To continue the celebration of animal shelter adoptions, popular canine Scooby-Doo will be joining forces with North Shore Animal League America by inviting schools and libraries along the Tour For Life route to celebrate locally by hosting Mutt-i-grees Pack Parties.

In conjunction with Tour For Life and its mobile adoption events, locally hosted Pack Parties are events designed to raise funds and raise awareness for local shelters and Mutt-i-grees’ in-school curriculum programs that teach social and emotional learning skills by helping homeless animals.
“Warner Bros. and Scooby-Doo are proud to support the Mutt-i-grees Curriculum and partner with North Shore Animal League America’s Tour for Life,” said Karen McTier, executive VP, Domestic Licensing and Worldwide Marketing, Warner Bros. Consumer Products.
“With Scooby-Doo at the head of the pack, even more young fans and dog-lovers will be able to participate in community-hosted Pack Parties across the country to advocate for shelter adoption and help animals find the home that they deserve.”

The school or library raising the most funds at a Mutt-i-grees Pack Party will also be eligible to win $1000 for their organization along with a visit from top-dog, and Mr. Mutt-i-gree himself… Scooby-Doo!
