Automaker Subaru Helps Pets Find Forever Homes

Posted by SusanStokes on November 8, 2019

Subaru of America, Inc. announced in a press release that due to the overwhelming success of pet adoption events at auto shows in 2018, the automaker is expanding its pet adoptions to more than 40 auto shows across the country through the remainder of 2019 and into 2020. As part of the "Subaru Loves Pets" initiative, the Subaru will partner with local animal shelters in cities hosting auto shows, with the focus of ultimately getting animals out of shelters and into loving forever homes.

A "Subaru Loves Pets" play area will be set up at participating auto shows where attendees can interact with adoptable pets and have the opportunity to adopt and take home a pet of their own. Available at each auto show booth will be a special Subaru pet tag engraving station. Even if an attendee chooses not to adopt, they are still encouraged to personalize a tag to take home for their own pet and make a donation to the partner shelter. All donations and proceeds made at the exhibit will go directly animals at the participating shelter.

The "Subaru Loves Pets" initiative is dedicated to helping improve the safety and well-being of animals in communities nationwide. The automaker's commitment to pets is one part of its "Love Promise" philanthropic platform. It is a promise to do right by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through their deeds and the deeds of their partners and to be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.

To kick off the auto show season, Subaru hosted adoption events at the Las Vegas Motor Trend Auto Show and the Central Florida Auto Show in September. Similar events will continue nationwide over the course of 2019 and into 2020, culminating at the North American International Auto Show in June 2020.
