Subaru Helped Some Pets in Need This Fall

Pets in Need | Beaverton, OR

Over the last few decades, Subaru has earned a well-deserved reputation as an automaker that cares. It started with a strong lineup of reliable cars with exceptional safety ratings and eventually grew into a series of philanthropic efforts known as the Subaru Love Promise. The latest example of Subaru’s commitment to doing good is its second annual “National Make a Dog’s Day” event, during which it helped pets in need.

Subaru Loves Pets, an animal-focused branch of the Love Promise, sponsored this event held on Oct. 22. It focused on finding homes for “last-to-be-adopted” dogs in shelters, including many canines with special needs.

“Dogs hold a special place in our hearts here at Subaru, and this year’s National Make a Dog’s Day [was…] the perfect occasion to show appreciation for our canine friends, especially the hundreds of thousands of dogs with special needs that are too often overlooked,” said Alan Bethke, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Subaru of America, Inc.

Of course, if you already have a beloved four-legged family member, you don’t have to miss out on the fun. During October, you can catch one of the automaker’s dog-centric commercials that showcase how pet-friendly Subaru models are. Subaru also encourages you to do something special for your dog and share pictures on social media using #MakeADogsDay.

Even if you missed Make a Dog’s Day this year, though, there are still ways to celebrate the joy that dogs bring us. Add some pet-friendly accessories to your Subaru to make traveling with your canines less stressful. Call us at CARR Subaru to find out more.

10 Best Cars for Dogs | Beaverton, OR

Autotrader recently named the 2020 Subaru Outback to this year’s 10 Best Cars for Dogs list. The publication evaluated vehicles based on how easy it was to clean, how comfortable it was for all kinds of dogs, and its dog-friendly safety features.

Leather upholstery, cargo tie downs for securing dog crates, and a low cargo floor with easy accessibility for small dogs and seniors were common amenities for the models that ranked well on the list. Autotrader also gave high ratings to models with tinted windows and rear air vents, two features to help keep pets from overheating on drives.

The 2020 Subaru Outback provides all these options and more. Autotrader cited that the 2020 Outback is a versatile ride with lots of features, and its off-roading capabilities mean you can take your dog on all kinds of adventures, from family camping trips to beach vacations.
