Fido Friendly’s 9th Annual Get Your Licks on Route 66 Pet Adoption Tour

Driven to promote pet adoption, FIDO Friendly magazine is about to embark on its 9th annual Get Your Licks on Route 66 tour along the Mother Road in order to find loving Mothers and Fathers for shelter dogs and cats.

Each companion animal from participating shelters who is united with a pet parent will add to the more than 9,000 dogs and cats who have already found forever homes over the past eight years of the traveling pet adoption event.

Win Pet-Themed Prizes

When the wheels of the tour bus stop at each destination from California to Kansas FIDO Friendly‘s giant spinning wheel will start to turn, with attendees who make a donation to help that day’s participating shelter getting the chance to spin for pet-themed prizes gifted by the tour’s sponsors. (All of the proceeds will go to that day’s shelter.) Watch for prizes from one of our sponsors: Lucy Pet Products!

Celebrity Spotting

On September 9th fans of both Saturday morning TV and our tail-wagging chums who visit the LA Animal Shelter in Van Nuys, California can get an autograph from Brandon McMillan, who will be filming a segment of his Emmy Award- winning CBS series Lucky Dog!
