MARSING, Idaho, Aug. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FIDO Friendly Magazine and Presenting Sponsor Petco Foundation kick off the 9th annual pet adoption tour: Get Your Licks on Route 66®.
"Each year we travel from Los Angeles to Chicago, stopping at animal shelters along the way to support adoption events and to raise money for the shelters," said Susan Sims, Publisher for FIDO Friendly Magazine. "At each event, attendees line up to donate money to spin and win prizes showcased on our giant spinning wheel which are provided by our sponsors. At the end of the day, all proceeds go to the shelter."
In the first eight years, the tour has helped place over 9,000 pets in to new forever homes.
"It's a great way to raise awareness over the plight of shelter pets and to help educate new pet parents about the importance to spay and neuter their pets," says Sims.
On September 9, tour Spokesperson and Emmy Award-Winning TV Host of the CBS weekly series, Lucky Dog, Brandon McMillan, will be on location at the East Valley Animal Shelter signing autographs and answering questions for pet parents between 11-1.
FIDO Friendly Magazine received a grant award from the Petco Foundation of $25,000, which will extend its ability to support the lifesaving efforts across America.
Pet adoption events with FIDO Friendly Magazine and the Petco Foundation will take place from September 8 to October 15.
