Subaru of America is saving animals lives... even more reason to love them!
They are hosting a pet adoption event during the 2019 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). Through a partnership with Michigan Humane Society, the adoption event is aimed at finding forever homes for pets in the metro Detroit area.
The first-of-its-kind event will be held inside the Cobo Center at the Subaru exhibit, located in Hall B, where attendees will have the opportunity to adopt and take home a dog or puppy.
"At Subaru, we look forward to the additional opportunities to celebrate our furry friends and return the unconditional love they show us each and every day," said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President, Marketing of Subaru of America, Inc. "Partnering with organizations like Michigan Humane Society reinforces our commitment to keeping all animals, especially those in shelters, happy; increasing their overall chance of finding safe, loving homes."
Auto show attendees will be able to interact with these adoptable pups during select times each weekend of the show, as outlined below:
- Saturday, Jan. 19, 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM
- Sunday, Jan. 20, 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM
- Saturday, Jan. 26, 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM
- Sunday, Jan. 27, 9:30 AM – 2:00 PM
"We are so grateful to Subaru of America for inviting us to be a part of this great event," says Michigan Humane Society media manager Anna Chrisman. "The opportunity to showcase our animals and highlight the work we do in such a unique space is something our team is really looking forward to."
In addition to being able to take these canine friends home, attendees will be given the chance to make rope toys as a donation to the shelter or for their own pet, as well as be able to create custom pet tags using the Subaru Loves Pets engraver. All activities will be complimentary with donations and proceeds going to Michigan Humane Society's work in metro Detroit.
Prospective adopters should bring with them a photo ID and either a credit or debit card to process payment. All adopters are subject to normal MHS adoption guidelines and procedures. Questions about the adoption process can be directed to the Animal Resource Center at 866 (MHUMANE).
This NAIAS adoption event is a part of the Subaru Loves Pets initiative, which is dedicated to helping improve the safety and well-being of animals in communities nationwide.
