R&B singer, dancer and Broadway actress Mýa will serve as national spokeswoman for the North Shore Animal League America’s Tour For Life campaign.

Organized by the Fort Washington, 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 Mýa, who will host the tour’s grand finale event at famed toy store FAO Schwarz in New York City. During that event, celebrities will  pose with puppies in the store’s windows.

In May, Mýa joins the  Broadway cast of the musical “Chicago.”

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  its inception in 2001, will provide a free gift with every adopted pet.

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