2013 Pet Hero Award Winner - Subaru

Outstanding Corporation


Why does an automobile manufacturer support animal welfare initiatives?

Excellent question and easily answered!


Subaru drives their customers’ passions and one of those passions is pet parenting. 7 out of 10

Subaru owners have an animal in their household. To support their customers, Subaru, along with their network of over 600 retail stores, have conducted hundreds of pet adoptions at their retail stores.


Subaru also sponsors and participates in many national, large-scale events. These sponsorships

have helped find loving homes for thousands of animals in need through the brand’s “Subaru Loves Pets” initiative. They Partner with several dedicated and highly regarded animal welfare

organizations who help share the call to action for animals in need.


Subaru has been a proud partner of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) since 2008. Subaru has donated numerous  invaluable vehicles that are used to serve ASPCA and local communities and are used to save animal lives across the United States. Subaru sponsors the ASPCA spay/neuter initiative and coordinates pet adoptions, pet ID tag programs, and food/toy drives for shelters. Countless numbers of homeless animals have been rescued due to the dedication of Subaru, its employees and retail stores.


Subaru is also a very proud and active partner of Pilots N Paws (PNP).  Pilots N Paws is a national organization of volunteer pilots.  Subaru has been supporting the efforts of PNP with the relocation of abandoned pets since 2010. Subaru generous support often provides these pilots with hotel rooms, transport to and from the airport in Subaru vehicles, catering services, and pet goodies for pilots to offer on their critical “Make a Flight Save a Life” rescue missions across the United States.



Subaru joined PetFest in its inaugural year in 2012 and is now the “Exclusive Vehicle of the Pet Hero Awards ”.  The Subaru Loves Pets Outback, serves as a billboard promoting the Pet Philanthropy Circle’s Pet Hero Awards.  The support of Subaru helps in achieving our mutual mission of raising awareness through recognition of  the dedicated work of pet heroes and improving the standards of animals in need.


Subaru Loves Pets

The Subaru Loves Pets effort reflects the corporate goals of Subaru to improve animal welfare in local communities where we live and work. Subaru retailers host events to support animal shelters and to show their commitment to animal welfare in a variety of ways – all part of the larger Subaru Love Promise effort dedicated to making a positive impact on the world.  Subaru supports initiatives such at the Pet Philanthropy Circle’s Pet Hero Awards to celebrate those that share our commitment to animals and to celebrate animals that have paid in forward in their own special way.
