It’s lonely out there for those on the road, and for those left behind.

Truckers lucky enough to travel with a furry friend say they are safer, happier and less stressed. Fleets with generous pet friendly policies say it’s a strong recruiting and retention benefit.

Many trucking service centers, such as our sponsor for these Halloween photos, CAT Scale company/Iowa 80 Group, say their locations welcome truckers and their furry friends. CAT Scale offers pet food, leashes, toys and supplies and Iowa 80 features the DogOmat Pet Wash on site.

Some of these 16 adorable pets will appear in the December Overdrive magazine. All will receive a free pet wash, courtesy of Iowa 80. Click on each photo to learn about the pet’s name and costume.
