Hosted by FIDO Friendly magazine and powered by SprinterRentals, the tour makes 15 stops from California to Chicago along Route 66. The tour has helped more than 6,000 animals find happy homes in the past six years.

One of the tour’s sponsors, Petcurean, is giving away prizes with a drawing at the end of the tour. All who adopt during the week of the event at the Santa Fe animal shelter will be eligible to win.

Sunday’s event features several contests, goody bags, photos and a spinning wheel. A $2 donation per spin offers a chance to win prizes, with all proceeds benefiting the shelter.
