October is Subaru Loves Pets Month and in partnership with animal rescues from three Southern Indiana counties, the adoption fees have been waived during a special one-day event!

The Numbers

Statistically, more than 6 million animals find themselves in shelters and rescues across the United States. Subaru has made it their mission to help.

<p><span class="body-copy fs-large">According to the ASPCA<sup>®</sup>, nearly 6.3 million companion animals enter shelters nationwide every year, where many live day after day without the love of a family or a home.</span></p><p><span class="body-copy fs-large">Subaru believes all pets deserve a loving home and that’s why we are the largest corporate donor to the ASPCA. Through our Subaru Loves Pets<sup>®</sup> initiative, Subaru and our retailers have been committed to improving the lives of as many shelter animals as possible. </span></p><p><span class="body-copy fs-large">Pets make the world a better place. Subaru is proud to help make the world a better place for them with over $51 million donated to national and local organizations, which has supported the adoption, rescue, transport, and health of over 420,000 animals.</span></p>
