The fourth annual FIDO Friendly magazine’s Get Your Licks on Route 66 adoption tour will stop in Oklahoma City on Friday, Oct. 19. The event is designed to raise awareness about the many adoptable pets in shelters and foster homes from Los Angeles to Chicago.
Best Friend of Pets will have dogs available for adoption at the event. The tour stops at PetSmart at 2140 W Memorial Rd. from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
This year’s tour is made more special by the many companies who have donated products to be used as prizes for a large spinning wheel.
Susan Sims, publisher of FIDO Friendly magazine and founder of the tour said, “We are so thrilled with the many sponsors who are donating fun products to be used as prizes. Attendees can donate $2 per spin with proceeds going directly to Best Friends of Pets that day.
Prizes include DVD’s, dog treats and food to dog products.” Photos will be taken of dogs who are adopted and one lucky pup will be chosen to appear on the cover of FIDO Friendly magazine in 2013.
For more information about the tour or pets for adoption, call Best Friends of Pets at 418-8511 or go to www.bestfriendsofpets.org.
About Best Friends of Pets
Best Friends of Pets is a local nonprofit organization that began in 1994 under a similar name to help increase pet adoptions and improve conditions for pets at the Oklahoma City Animal Shelter.
In 2005, Best Friends started its Spay/Neuter Assistance Program (SNAP), the first year-round community spay/neuter program of its kind in the Oklahoma City area.
In 2006, Best Friends changed its adoption program to work with small groups and individuals who rescue and foster pets until they are adopted. Best Friends of Pets strives to reduce the pet overpopulation problem of too many homeless pets by helping pets, their owners and our community.
