ASPCA to support animal shelters across the country with Subaru donations
NEW YORK, Dec. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The ASPCA® (The American
Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®) today announced its
participation in the fifth annual Subaru "Share the Love" event, now
During the "Share the Love" event – which will run through January 2, 2013 –
Subaru will donate $250 for every new Subaru vehicle sold or leased to the
customer's choice of one of five charities, including the ASPCA.
Since 2008, the ASPCA has received over $5.6 million from Subaru during the
"Share the Love" event and has been the No. 1 charity choice of consumers
every year, reflecting the commitment that Subaru and Subaru owners have to
helping animals. One hundred percent of the ASPCA's fifth annual "Share the
Love" event donation will be distributed as grants to animal welfare
organizations across the country. Over 130 grants have already been
distributed for adoption and spay/neuter programs, animal cruelty
investigations and raids, and to animal shelters affected by Hurricane Sandy.
The ASPCA is also working to connect shelters with local dealerships for
"Share the Love" Shelter-Dealership adoption events. To date, over 80 adoption
events are scheduled nationwide, funded in part by grants from the ASPCA. To
keep up with the growing list of "Share the Love" Shelter-Dealership events,

the Love' event and are thankful for the overwhelming support from Subaru and
Subaru owners," said Elysia Howard, vice president of marketing & licensing
for the ASPCA. "We are excited to be able to pay it forward by helping
shelters and Subaru dealerships across the country hold adoption events for
their communities during this special time of year."

partnered with the ASPCA to conduct hundreds of events, which has resulted in
