MARSING, Idaho, Sept. 19, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FIDO Friendly Magazine announces the 9th Annual Pet Adoption Tour, Get Your Licks on Route 66® with Presenting Sponsor Petco Foundation.
"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 generous sponsors like Evercare, Petcurean, Sleepypod Buddy Belts and Tito's Vodka to name just a few. 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.
At the kick off in Los Angeles, tour Spokesperson and Emmy Award Winning TV Host of the CBS weekly series Lucky Dog, Brandon McMillan, appeared at the East Valley Animal Shelter signing autographs and answering questions for pet parents.
