The first ever cross country Inspiration Waggin’ bus tour is coming to town this Friday, May 16th. They will be surprising the staff at the American Medical Association as well as the general public that walks by Pioneer Court. The puppies on-board and the kitties within will bring their best tail-wagging, face licking personalities as they give a little pick-me-up to the people that really need one. Animals can do the trick every time! It is like they are a magnet emanating love abound.

Everyday moments like cramming for finals, laundry, running errands or lawn mowing are all routine tasks that can get to even the best of us. These tasks become much less mundane and much more infused with cheer when PetSmart, some inspirational PetSmart spokespeople and a few furry friends (dogs and cats alike) hop aboard the first-ever Inspiration Waggin’ truck and embark on a six-city, Inspiration Waggin’ tour across the United States and into Canada.

The truck has already begun making its way across the country with dogs, puppies and cats that plan to visit retirement centers, university campuses and popular local spots so people can benefit from a wagging tail and some unconditional love to make even the most regular of days better. The Inspiration Waggin’ has or will make stops in:

· Los Angeles – May 9

· Phoenix – May 12

· Dallas – May 14

· Chicago – May 16

· Toronto – May 20

· New York City – May 22

The tour is scheduled to arrive in Chicago at the beginning of this weekend where the fun will begin at 9:00 a.m. CST. Their first stop will be at the American Medical Association’s headquarters located at 330 North Wabash Avenue. Afterward they will head to Pioneer Court for 10:00 a.m. They are announcing this ahead of time in case you are in the area, they encourage you to stop by for your quaint little animal therapy session; hug a dog or cat and your day will be filled with bliss!

“The purpose of the Inspiration Waggin’ tour is to bring pet-inspired moments to people across the country,” said David Lenhardt, PetSmart president and CEO. “PetSmart is all about creating more moments for people to be inspired by pets with our unique products, services and experiences, and the Inspiration Waggin’ is a great example of our commitment to this mission.”
