As Part of the Subaru Loves Pets Initiative, Automaker is Dedicated to Help Pets Find Forever Homes

CAMDEN, N.J., Oct. 9, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Subaru of America, Inc. today announced 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 this year and into 2020. As part of the Subaru Loves Pets initiative, the automaker 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.

Subaru of America Expands Pet Adoptions to More Than 40 National Auto Shows Nationwide; As Part of the Subaru Loves Pets Initiative, Automaker is Dedicated to Help Pets Find Forever Homes.

"At Subaru, we look forward to opportunities that help our furry friends in need and we want to return the unconditional love they show us each day," said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Subaru of America, Inc. "We saw great success with our pet adoption events last year, so we wanted to not only sustain, but build upon, that momentum to help even more pets unite with a loving lifetime companion."

Attendees at participating auto shows will be able to interact with adoptable pets at the Subaru Loves Pets play area and will 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.

Attendees not looking to adopt are encouraged to personalize a tag to take home for their own pet along with a donation to the partner shelter. All donations and proceeds to the exhibit will go directly animals at the participating shelter.

The auto show adoption events are a part of the Subaru Loves Pets initiative, which 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.
