Subaru Loves Pets Venture

When you think about your favorite pet -current or past- what comes to mind first? Loyalty, maybe. Unending love. Funny antics. Laughter and good medicine for your heart. Pets provide us with so much and ask so little in return.

For years now, Subaru has been involved with the Subaru Loves Pets venture, part of the larger Subaru Love Promise. At Putnam Subaru, we love pets too and are proud to be part of the larger Subaru family which places importance on relationships with furry friends.

Just what is the Subaru Loves Pets program all about? It's a public declaration to support pets, especially animals that have been mistreated or abandoned, through the financial support of several organizations. Subaru has partnered with the ASPCA-the oldest humane society established in the U.S.-since 2008. During that time it has donated close to $16.5 million to the organization.

In addition, Subaru provides "Rescue Rides," transporting thousands of animals from overcrowded shelters to facilities where they had a better chance of being adopted. It's estimated that the program has saved over 12,500 animals to date. Another way that Subaru shares its love of pets is through the ASPCA Mega Match-a-Thon event, providing grants of around $160,000 to support shelters across the country.

Subaru also partners with the Center for Pet Safety, a nonprofit organization that works to keep both pets and their people safe. Subaru sponsored two studies for the Center for Pet Safety to better learn how to protect pets in the event of an auto accident.

Pilots N Paws is a nonprofit which helps airlift animals from kill shelters to no-kill shelters or foster care across the country. It's estimated that 75,000 animals have been transported since 2009. Subaru sponsors this organization by contributing to pilots' housing and meals and providing pet care kits and pet rescue ground transport.

Lastly, Subaru is the official sponsor of the Pet Philanthropy Hero Awards, which enhances the overall well-being of animals and promotes greater public awareness of their welfare.
