Pet Adoption Saturday – Brandon B
It all started with our Share the Love event at Victory Subaru when we picked Cold Nose Warm Heart animal rescue as our local charity. We found at the time of our event there was a great need for not only homes, but supplies for the animals that were waiting to be adopted. We discovered that a large number of these animals are fostered in private homes and we were hoping that through the collection of these items at the dealership we could help offset the cost of fostering our furry friends until they found their new homes. We had other special events to raise awareness for the animals that are in need of forever homes. One example was a local radio station-sponsored "Cutest pet" photo contest, in which the grand prize was a flat screen television. We found the use of social media and the radio station helped us to nearly double out attendance at our second adoption event. Throughout the year, our events have been growing. Not only in success, but in the number of vendors and organizations that participated. New organizations such as Somerset Rescue Center, Franklin Animal Shelter, Second Chance for Animals, and County Veterinary Hospital have joined forces with us. We, at Victory Subaru, are very proud of our community involvement not only with pet adoption, but also with other community events and non-profits.
