Singer, dancer, and Broadway actress Mya will serve as national spokesperson for the North Shore Animal League’s “America Tour for Life 2008” campaign.

Organized by the N.Y.-based no-kill shelter and sponsored by Nestle Purina PetCare Co., Bayer Animal Health, and Fort Dodge Animal Health, the tour will visit 20 cities during April to promote the adoption of shelter animals.

“This lifesaving tour is truly close to my heart, as both a pet owner and an animal lover,” said Mya, who will host the tour’s grand finale event at famed toy store FAO Schwarz in New York City. During that event, celebrities will be posing with puppies in the store’s windows.

As part of the tour, two of North Shore’s mobile adoption units will travel on separate routes through the country, helping more than 100 shelters and rescue groups adopt out animals.

Nestle Purina, which has sponsored the tour since 2001, will provide a free gift with every adopted pet.

Since its inception in 2001, the campaign has helped place thousands of animals into new homes, according to North Shore.
