Subaru Loves Pets adoption centers coming to 40 auto shows this season
The Barkleys, a family of golden retrievers, star in Subaru ads and at major U.S. auto shows the automaker hosts open pet adoptions as part of their Subaru Loves Pets campaign. Now, the effort is going nationwide.
During the remainder of 2019 and into 2020, the automaker will partner with local animal shelters in 40 cities hosting auto shows, with a focus on getting animals out of shelters and to their forever homes.

"At Subaru, we look forward to opportunities that help our furry friends in need and we want to return the unconditional love they show us each day," said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Subaru of America, Inc. "We saw great success with our pet adoption events last year, so we wanted to not only sustain, but build upon, that momentum to help even more pets unite with a loving lifetime companion."
While attending their local auto show, attendees with be able to interact with adoptable pets in the Subaru Loves Pets play area and will have the opportunity to adopt and take home a new family member.

A Subaru pet tag engraving station will be located in each play area, allowing attendees who have pets to personalize a tag to take home for their pet by donating to their local shelter at the booth. All donations and proceeds to the exhibit will go directly animals at the participating shelter.
