Subaru of America Reaffirms Commitment To Pets In Need During October "Subaru Loves Pets" Month

Subaru Brings Awareness to the Hardest-to-Adopt Shelter Dogs Through New Creative Campaign and Nationwide Impact Effort

Subaru of America, Inc. has announced the return of its Subaru Loves Pets program, dedicating the month of October to supporting the well-being and protection of animals across the country. As in the past years, Subaru will continue its partnership with The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®), as they work together to help the approximately 3.3 million dogs that enter shelters every year find a safe and loving home. 

A commitment to caring for pets is an integral part of the Subaru Love Promise. This year, Subaru is expanding its mission by establishing the first-ever National Make A Dog's Day on October 22. On this day, Subaru and its retailers will sponsor a nationwide effort to help the hardest-to-adopt shelter dogs find loving homes. Working closely with the ASPCA, Subaru will champion special needs dogs, specifically senior dogs, visually and hearing-impaired dogs, amputees, and dogs with birth defects and physical challenges. Timmons Subaru of Long Beach invites dog lovers to do something special for their loving companions on this day.

"Pets play a big role in our lives and the lives of Subaru owners. While we support efforts all year dedicated to the betterment of animals' lives, in October, we make a concerted effort to help shelter pets – particularly the hard-to-adopt ones – find loving homes," said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Subaru of America, Inc. "We are proud to establish the official National Make a Dog's Day on October 22 and shine a light on the hundreds of thousands of dogs that are often times passed over including those with special needs."
