Lassie and Pets Best Present Insurance Policies to Newly Adopted Pets

Lassie Helps Pets Best Present Insurance Policies to 2 Newly Adopted Pets

Pet insurance agency sponsors FIDO Friendly’s nationally recognized pet adoption tour 

 

BOISE, Idaho (Sept. 16, 2014) – In recognition of Pet Health Insurance Month in September, Pets Best Insurance Services, LLC, a leading pet insurance agency, recently had help from television legend Lassie while presenting Pets Best pet insurance policies to two newly adopted pets during the Get Your Licks on Route 66 pet adoption tour.

 

Dr. Jack Stephens, founder of Pets Best, has a long-running history with Lassie, as he presented the iconic canine with the first pet insurance policy issued in the United States 32 years ago.

 

Lassie and Dr. Stephens made an appearance during a Sept. 14 adoption event at the Best Friends Pet Adoption & Spay/Neuter Center in Mission Hills, California, the third stop on the Get Your Licks on Route 66 pet adoption tour. As a reward for supporting the adoption event, the first two families who adopted a pet that day were given one-year pet insurance policies. The Pets Best BestBenefit accident and illness policies were purchased and donated by FIDO Friendly.

 

The first pet insurance recipient was an 8-year-old mixed breed dog named Chopo, who, after spending a year at the shelter, happily went home with his new family. The second recipient was a black domestic shorthair kitten who is still unnamed but now has a place to call home.

 

“Pets Best is dedicated to improving the lives of pets across the nation by helping their owners afford the high costs associated with increasingly complex veterinary treatments,” Dr. Stephens said. “As a pet-focused organization, we take pride in supporting events that play a valuable role in promoting pet adoption.”

 

In an effort to raise awareness about shelters and pet adoption opportunities across the country, Pets Best has joined the Get Your Licks on Route 66 pet adoption tour as the official pet insurance sponsor. The annual tour is put on by FIDO Friendly, a pet-focused travel and lifestyle publication. The tour kicked off on Sept. 12 in Riverside, California, and it ends in Kansas City on Oct. 19.

 

The sixth annual Get Your Licks on Route 66 tour will make its way across the country, stopping in 16 cities to bring awareness to pet adoption. Each event will take place at a local pet adoption site, and the public is invited to join the festivities. Pets available for adoption will be featured at each event for the public to meet and interact with.

 

Greg Sims, president and chief operating officer of FIDO Friendly, and Susan Sims, publisher of the quarterly magazine, developed the idea for the annual tour six years ago.

 

“It occurred to me that while we traveled with our dogs to review hotels and destinations, there might be something we could do while we were going from city to city on behalf of homeless pets,” Susan Sims said, adding that the couple has two adopted shelter dogs, a Labrador retriever named Junior and a boxer named Jake. “I often thought shelters endured a stigma of housing ‘throw-away dogs’ and that if you wanted a purebred dog, you would need to connect with a breeder. Both of our dogs serve as examples that the stigma associated with shelters is far from true.”

 

Actress, best-selling author and animal lover Danica McKellar serves as the event’s official spokesperson this year. McKellar, best known for her role as Winnie Cooper on “The Wonder Years” was recently seen competing on “Dancing with the Stars.” McKellar made a special appearance at the Los Angeles Animal Services East Valley Shelter on Sept. 13 in Van Nuys, California.

 

Brandon McMillan, host of the popular CBS show “Lucky Dog,” was also in attendance at the Sept. 13 event. McMillan and his crew filmed a segment that day at the shelter for an upcoming episode of “Lucky Dog.”

 

In the past five years, the tour has helped more than 2,000 pets find their forever homes. To learn more about the tour dates, visit www.getyourlicksonroute66.com. People who visit this website and make a donation of $10 or more to the tour will receive a free, one-year digital subscription to FIDO Friendly and a “Leave No Dog Behind®” bumper sticker.

 

“With the help of our sponsors, we will continue this life-saving tour every year to help shed light on the plight of homeless pets,” Susan Sims said.

Backstage Beauty with @Marahoffman #MBFW and Catwalk by TIGI

Finally made my way to Lincoln Center on Saturday to catch the Mara Hoffman show!  As some of you know, I am working with a NY designer for Fashion Week doing their social media so I have been preoccupied. BUT this was sensational!  Nick from TIGI talked about Mara’s inspiration: 70′s, California and the desert dryness that inspired the beauty look SS15.

My good friend JAN from the AMPTEAM came by to hang out with me! Yay!

Mara Hoffman’s name is synonymous with her electric prints, but for Spring she set out to prove her evolution and range as a designer. “I do fabrications. I do silhouettes. I do a whole lot more than just blasting you with neon prints,” she said backstage before her runway show. “I wanted to shift the equation and create something that reflected more of my own personal aesthetic. I want my girl to grow and hope she comes along with me on the trip.” Scaling back those in-your-face graphics made for a tranquil, easier collection that ultimately captured Hoffman’s mantra: “Be light.”

The first look out—a white linen button-down paired with matching wide-leg culottes—exemplified this season’s new, softer direction. Continuing to work with natural fabrics and a muted color palette, Hoffman whipped up relaxed pieces including a floor-sweeping terra-cotta-hued bandeau dress, and a woven shirt-and-trousers set with faded rainbow stripes. More often than not, patterns were incorporated in the form of beading (a dégradé checkerboard slip, in particular, earned high marks) or embroidery (Hoffman’s favorite group featured “electrolyte” needlework). And while the designer largely moved away from her signature prints here, she couldn’t help but sprinkle a “harvest” motif resembling cannabis leaves throughout the lineup. Hoffman took her finale bow in a cute cutout jumpsuit splashed with the mood-lifting pattern, which is sure to become a hit among her loyal, free-spirited customers. Talk about a high point.
