Life is better with a furry friend. Subaru of America knows that. On Wednesday, the Japan-based automaker, which has its U.S. headquarters in Camden, announced that, in conjunction with hundreds of Subaru retailers and partner shelters across the country, it has successfully helped more than 36,000 shelter pets find loving new homes during Subaru Loves Pets month in October 2021.
Moreover, nearly 60,000 shelter animals have been adopted in the two years since the Subaru Loves Pets adoption campaign began.
“The Subaru community has shown time and time again just how passionate they are about helping pets and their support for shelter pets in their local community this past Subaru Loves Pets month was overwhelming,” said Alan Bethke, senior vice president of marketing, Subaru of America Inc. “We thank our Subaru retailers, partner shelters and all those who adopted a new pet this year for showing love to animals in need.”
Each October, Subaru hosts a nationwide campaign aimed at helping shelter pets find loving homes, and, in 2021, more than 600 Subaru retailers held in-person or virtual adoption events throughout the month of October. Subaru retailers also donated nearly $1.64 million to local animal shelters in their communities.
As part of the 2021 Subaru Loves Pets campaign, the automaker championed hard-to-adopt shelter dogs — including dogs with special needs, specifically senior dogs, amputees, visually and hearing-impaired dogs, and dogs with congenital disabilities and physical challenges.
To date, Subaru has supported the rescue and adoption of nearly 350,000 animals nationwide.
