For the 11th year, animal lovers are in seventh heaven knowing that adoptable dogs cats along the Mother Road will find forever mothers and fathers to love thanks to FIDO Friendly magazine’s annual Get Your Licks on Route 66 pet adoption tour!
Along with helping to unite pups and our pals who purr with forever pet parents, the tour also helps to raise funds for that day’s participating shelter with the FIDO Friendly giant spinning wheel. For a donation, visitors can spin to win pet-themed prizes from the event’s sponsors, with all of the proceeds from the game going to that tour stop’s shelter.
The wheels of FIDO Friendly‘s Get Your Licks on Route 66 tour bus will go round and round beginning September 7th with a stop at the L.A. Animal Shelter in Van Nuys, where fans of the popular CBS series Lucky Dog who are lucky enough to live in the L.A. area can get an autograph from celebrity dog trainer Brandon McMillan as he films an upcoming segment of his Emmy Award-winning program and helps to kick off the tour!
Every dog and cat adopted on the 11th annual Get Your Licks on Route 66 pet adoption tour will add to the more than 13,000 companion animals who are already traveling down the road of life together with a forever family thanks to FIDO Friendly‘s annual pet adoption event!
