Subaru Donates More Than $2 Million to ASPCA Through "Share the Love" Event
For the sixth year in a row, the ASPCA was honored to be selected as one of five national charities to participate in Subaru of America, Inc.’s “Share the Love” event from November 21, 2013 to January 2, 2014. More animals than ever before were helped throughout the event, as Subaru doubled its total donation to all participating charities from $5 million to $10 million and allowed Subaru retailers to designate a sixth local charity to participate in this exciting campaign. As a result, more than 50 Subaru retailers chose local animal welfare organizations.
During “Share the Love,” the ASPCA helped facilitate partnerships between Subaru retailers and local animal shelters. A record 176 pet adoption events were held nationwide, resulting in more than 1,200 adoptions!
In addition, the ASPCA allocated more than $100,000 of the “Share the Love” donation it received to fund the first ever Subaru “Share the Love”/ASPCA Rescue Rides, moving at-risk animals to shelters where they could find homes for the holidays! These life-saving Rescue Rides saved an additional 1,400 puppies, dogs, cats and kittens. Take a look below at some of the related activities which were posted on Twitter using the hashtag #aspcaSTL.
Words cannot express our gratitude to Subaru of America for making this donation possible, and to all the Subaru customers who once again helped the ASPCA become the most chosen “Share the Love” charity!
Thank you Subaru and Subaru owners on behalf of the countless animals you have helped!
