The 13th Annual “Get Your Licks on Route 66” cross country pet adoption tour, hosted by FIDO Friendly, will kick off in Los Angeles on Sept. 4 and conclude Oct. 9 in Chicago. Tour stops will include animal shelters in Arizona, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Missouri and Nebraska. The annual tour has successfully worked with local animal shelters across the country to find forever homes for over 14,000 pets.
This year’s tour sponsors include: advocate sponsor Sure Petcare who will also be providing PR services for the tour; Embrace Pet Insurance; and Tito’s Vodka for Dog People. This year’s media sponsor is Animal Radio; companion sponsor is Pet King; cat food sponsor is Catit; community sponsors are Buddy Belts; Brutus Bone Broth; DogTV; and HandsOn Gloves. Finally this year’s campground sponsor is Kampgrounds of America (KOA). KOA is the world's largest system of privately held campgrounds with almost 500 locations across the United States and Canada.
“We are so excited about this year’s tour,” said founder Susan Sims, publisher of FIDO Friendly Magazine. “After all that we have been through during Covid-19, this tour is going to be special. We can’t wait to help participating animal shelters find forever homes for their homeless pets and through our prize wheel, raise money for the individual shelters.”
