For the sixth year in a row, the ASPCA has been selected to participate in the Subaru “Share the Love” event, which kicks off November 21. Since 2008, the ASPCA has received over $7 million from “Share the Love” and has been the #1 choice of consumers every year, reflecting the commitment that Subaru owners have to helping animals.
Once again this year, for every vehicle sold or leased between November 21, 2013 and January 2, 2014, Subaru will donate $250 to the consumer’s choice among five national charity partners, with a minimum guarenteed donation of $250,000 to each partner, and in select areas, a sixth local charity chosen by individual dealers.
This year marks a pivotal turning point in the history of the campaign as Subaru of America has managed to exceed our expectations for 2013, with its decision to double the total “Share the Love” charitable donation from $5 million to $10 million. Thank you, Subaru!
Based on past successes, the ASPCA has the potential to double our donation, thereby doubling our impact on animals nationwide. The ASPCA plans to award the majority of our “Share the Love” donation as grants to animal welfare organizations across the country. Quite simply, the more selections made for the ASPCA when buying or leasing a new vehicle, the more funds will be available to help continue our collective life-saving work!
In addition, there are two more exciting new elements of the campaign this year:
- Subaru invited retailers to select a sixth local charity to participate, and we’re pleased to announce that over 50 dealers have selected a local animal welfare organization!
- The ASPCA will allocate a portion of our “Share the Love” donation as shelter grants, to fund life-saving animal transports. A number of these Subaru “Share the Love”/ASPCA Rescue Rides will take place throughout the campaign in select markets across the country. Hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be finding homes for the holidays! Check out videos from 2013 Rescue Rides from Southern California  and New Mexico . Stay tuned to find out how you can help support these Rescue Rides or contact us at Sharethelove@aspca.org .
Please help us spread the word about the Subaru “Share the Love” event! The support from Subaru has already helped us save thousands of animals, but there are countless more that need our help.
