The Get Your Licks on Route 66® team travels down America’s Favorite Highway. Last year the team drove the Ford F150. This year the team will be driving the 2015 Ford Expedition sponsored vehicle from Los Angeles to Chicago, stopping at shelters along the way to support adoption events. 

In the first five years, we have helped place over 2,000 pets in to new forever homes!  Check out our custom spinning wheel filled with prizes you can win!

 

If you are not looking to add a forever family member you can still join the fun by visiting one of our partner shelters and donate $2.00 to spin and win with proceeds going to the shelter at the end of the day!
