January 29, 2020 – The MotorTrend International Baltimore Auto Show has a new tail-wagging twist this year thanks to the Subaru Loves Pets initiative. The automaker is partnering with the Baltimore Humane Society (BHS) with the focus of ultimately getting animals out of the shelter and into loving forever homes.
In information announcing the expansion of the adoption centers to 40 auto shows across the country, Alan Bethke, Subaru Senior Vice President of Marketing said, “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. 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.”
Attendees of the Baltimore show will be able to interact with adoptable pets at the Subaru Loves Pets play area and will have the opportunity to apply to adopt and take home a pet of their own from the organization. BHS will have adoptable dogs at the show each day during the following hours:
Thursday, February 6, 12pm – 4:30pm
Friday, February 7, 12:30pm – 4:30pm
Saturday, February 8, 10am – 4pm
Sunday, February 9, 10am – 3pm
Attendees not looking to adopt are encouraged to personalize a tag to take home for their own pet along with making a donation to Baltimore Humane Society. All donations and proceeds to the exhibit will go directly to the animals at the shelter.
The auto show adoption events are a part of the Subaru Loves Pets initiative, which is dedicated to helping improve the safety and well-being of animals in communities nationwide. The automaker’s commitment to pets is one part of its Love Promise philanthropic platform. Over 200 pets have been adopted and countless local shelters supported since Subaru began hosting adoption events at auto shows in 2018.
