The life of a musician on tour seems like a dream come true. But spending months away from your favorite fur-child is often the reality of this rock n’ roll lifestyle.
So what do you do when your beloved pet can’t accompany you on the tour bus? You stop at the nearest local shelter to get your fur-fix!
That is exactly what the bands and crews on the Thirty Seconds To Mars – The Monolith Tour did during their recent stop in Tampa, Florida this past Saturday.
Missing their fur-babies at home, the group visited the Humane Society of Tampa Bay who were more than happy to welcome the animal lovers with their Break Time Buddies program. This amazing program allows local groups & businesses to schedule team building and stress relieving breaks for their staff where adoptable animals visit, bringing smiles to everyone.
While this visit was only with puppies, this is likely due to the lack of shyness many dogs exercise when meeting new people. Sometimes you just have to “fan girl”! (Meaning “overly excited when seeing a specific individual” for those of us out of our teens.)
Cats on the other paw, can take a bit of warming up to and like to keep THEIR fan groups to a minimum; they don’t “fan girl” for anyone. Shame as we had so many “Meownolith” cat puns ready for the tour groups!
The smiles of pure joy just couldn’t be contained on the humans faces.
Although the visit was short, it left everyone feeling a bit more relaxed and cheerful afterwards.
We’re sure the concert-goers were pleased with their already amazing concert made all the more perfect by stress-free musicians.
So awesome! It’s a win-win. The band members get their fur fix and the pups get some socialization. 🙂
