Get Your Licks on Route 66 - 5th Annual Life Saving Pet Adoption Tour

Join FIDO Friendly for the 5th annual month long pet adoption tour: Get Your Licks on Route 66®!

Sponsored by Ford and Animal Radio. Special thanks to car wrap sponsor Stella & Chewy’s and pet safety sponsor Tagg the GPS Pet Tracker. Tour hotel accommodations provided by Kimpton Hotels.

We drive down America’s Favorite Highway in the Ford provided F150 from Los Angeles to Chicago, stopping at shelters along the way to support adoption events.

Stop by the Los Angeles kick off party where cast from the popular daytime TV soap The Young and the Restless will be appearing along with our official spokesperson, nominated actress and animal lover, Ashley Bell. 

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!

Can’t stop by one of our tour locations, but would love to support this life saving tour? Go online to and donate to the life saving pet adoption tour, Get Your Licks on Route 66®.
