Hyundai Motor America has teamed up with Operation Frodo 1650 for a holiday mission to transport 10 shelter dogs from Omaha, NE, to their new homes in Portland, OR, an initiative supported by automotive journalist Nik Miles and Animal Rescue Rigs.

"Thank you to Operation Frodo 1650 for including Hyundai in this year's canine rescue program," said Angela Zepeda, chief marketing officer, Hyundai Motor America. "This is a cause that is close to many of our team members' hearts. We are proud to partner with our automotive journalist community friends to help provide necessary funds and transportation in our Santa Fe to safely deliver shelter animals to their forever homes."

Founded in 2022, Operation Frodo 1650 was inspired by Frodo, the first dog rescued by Animal Rescue Rigs, and symbolizes the approximately 1,650-mile journey these dogs will make to their new homes. This endeavor not only seeks to rehome needy dogs but also raises funds for Animal Rescue Rigs, a nonprofit dedicated to creating specialized animal transport vehicles for shelters.

The journey, scheduled from Dec. 16-20, will see media volunteers and automotive journalists driving the donated Hyundai Santa Fe SUV across several states, including stops in Colorado Springs, Salt Lake City and Boise, before reaching Portland. Hyundai's generous contribution of $5,000 will cover various travel expenses, including food, lodging and fuel.
