Pet Botanics Co-Sponsors “Get Your Licks On Route 66” Pet Adoption Tour

September 9, 2014

Basic CMYKAZUSA, Calif. – Pet Botanics dog treats will co-sponsor this year’s “Get Your Licks On Route 66” pet adoption tour. Hosted by FIDO Friendly, the 6th annual, month-long tour kicks off September 12 from Riverside, CA, and ends in Merriam, KS, traveling along legendary Route 66.

Pet Botanics, best known for their nutritious dog treats and training rewards will be the exclusive pet treat sponsor of the tour this fall.

“Pet Botanics has always been involved with rescue events and as a company we are located less than two miles from historic Route 66, it’s a ‘natural’ for us to support this tour,” said Tony de Vos, President and CEO of Cardinal Pet Care, the parent company of Pet Botanics. “We’re proud to contribute to an event that finds homes for so many animals.”

In the first five years combined, the tour placed over 2000 pets in new homes. With 17 adoption stops in 8 states, this year’s event is expected to re-home hundreds of animals.

The 2014 “Get Your Licks On Route 66” co-sponsors are Pet Botanics, the official dog treat sponsor, and Ford Motor Company, the tour vehicle supplier. The 2015 Ford Expedition (an appropriate name for the route’s official SUV) is a new model making its own debut at the tour launch. The event spokesperson is actress and dog lover Danica McKellar, best known for her role as Winnie Cooper on the Wonder Years.
