FIDO Friendly’s 7th Annual Get Your Licks on Route66®

FIDO Friendly's 7th annual month long pet adoption tour: Get Your Licks on Route 66® starts September 11, 2015 in Riverside, California.


It’s that time of year again where FIDO Friendly travels down the Mother Road, stopping at shelters along the way to support adoption events.

Advocate Sponsor Shelby: A Magical Holiday Tail Coming Soon to DVD and Digital HD, Community Sponsors Zeus Dog Toys, Petcurean, DERMagic, Blue Dog Bakery and Media Sponsor Animal Radio along with Vehicle Sponsor SprinterRentals and Car Wrap Sponsor WellPet are heading down America's Favorite Highway to help shed light on the plight of homeless pets.

Powered by SprinterRentals, we have 15 cities to visit this year and it would be great if you can attend. If you can't attend and would like to donate to the tour, just click the donation button below and you will be taken to a secure site. With a minimum donation of $10 we will send you a complimentary one-year digital subscription to FIDO Friendly magazine! With a $30 or more donation you will also receive a Get Your Licks on Route 66® t-shirt. Your name will be listed as a grass-root supporter.


We can't wait to meet our FIDO Fabulous fans and help as many pets as possible, find their forever homes! 

The cross-country pet adoption tour officially starts September 11 in Riverside, California at the Riverside Animal Shelter and kicks off September 12th in Los Angeles.  TV host of the weekly CBS series Lucky Dog, Brandon McMillan, is our spokesperson and he will be at the kick-off to meet attendees.  Cast from the CBS daytime soap The Young & The Restless will also be in attendance.

In the first six years, we have helped place over 3,000 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!

Thanks to our sponsors who have signed up to help us save lives, one shelter at a time! Please visit their websites to see the great products they have to offer.
