Overdrive and Truckers News want to see photos of truckers’ pets in costume for Halloween. Submit them here. Pets may appear in a future issue of Overdrive, and owners could even win a free pet wash courtesy of Iowa 80’s DogOmat Pet Wash.
Heather DeBaillie, marketing manager for CAT Sale company/Iowa 80 Group says their locations welcome truckers and their furry companions. “We know your pets mean the world to you, so we invite you to Pamper Your Pooch at Iowa 80! If your furry travel companion could need a little sprucing up, you can get them cleaned and smelling fresh at the DogOmat Pet Wash on site. Pet food, leashes, food and water bowls, toys and more are available in the newly expanded Iowa 80 convenience store. Iowa 80 also offers plenty of areas for you and your pets to stretch your legs outdoors around the property,” she says.
