Here's how to help and what dog supplies to buy and donate on National Make a Dog's Day 2019
National Make a Dog's Day launches today, October 22, 2019, as Subaru aims to bring awareness to the hardest to adopt shelter dogs.
Subaru will work closely with The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) to support dogs that don't often get adopted.
Approximately 3.3 million dogs enter shelters each year. Subaru will specifically be helping special needs dogs, senior dogs, amputees, visually and hearing-impaired dogs, and dogs with birth defects and physical challenges, as these dogs find it much harder to get adopted.
To support National Make a Dog's Day, you can share a photo of your happy dog on social media with the hashtag #MakeADogsDay, consider adopting a dog from a shelter, or volunteer at an animal shelter.
Donate dog supplies to your local shelter, or visit your local Subaru retailer, as they will collect unused dog supplies and will donate 5,500 shelter supply kits and 4,800 new pet parent kits to local shelters. Additionally, more than 100 participating Subaru retailers will work with animal shelters in their communities and will host pet adoption events.
Subaru has been partnered with the ASPCA for 11 years and has raised nearly $25 million and has helped get more than 57,000 dogs adopted.
