Bathe To Save Tour at Patriot Subaru - New England Tour

We had a great event!  Here's the recap of "Bathe To Save" that came to Patriot Subaru North Attleboro:

    

    
    
It was a perfect fall day, 70 and sunny!  Washes started at 10am and we stayed busy until 4pm. 100% of the proceeds went to the Friends of Attleboro Animal Shelter, and between the dog washes, plus a raffle conducted by Rumford Pet Center, we raised $1064! Plus, we stuffed a Subaru Crosstrek to the brim with pet food, blankets and chew toys, with donations being dropped off throughout the day, and sizeable donation from Rumford Pet.  Great job!
Event was held on Friday Oct 20, 2017

What is Subaru Loves Pets?

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy. During the month of October, Subaru Loves Pets showcases our promise and commitment to animal welfare by partnering with the ASCPA and supporting local animal shelters. Our goal is to collect and provide each shelter with basic pet supplies that will improve the quality of life for the animals staying under their roofs.
 
This is all part of the Subaru Love Promise, Subaru's commitment to improve the lives of those in the local communities where we live and work. We believe it is important to make a positive impact in the world; simply because, it is the right thing to do.

Our Bone of Contention:
  • Approximately 3.9 million animals (1.2 million dogs) are killed in U.S. shelters each year.
  • One unspayed dog & her unaltered offspring can produce 67,000 dogs in seven years.
  • Only one out of every 10 dogs born will find a permanent home.
  • 60% of dogs in shelters never find a home.

 Subaru of New England Bathe To Save Tour

This year we are combining a shelter supply drive with a Bathe To Save event at seven locations throughout New England, in an effort to raise funds in addition to supplies. 

Patriot Subaru is proud to be 2 of those locations!  Friday October 13th at our Saco, ME store, and Friday October 20th here at our North Attleboro, MA location.

We have partnered with Bathe To Save, an organization touring New England with a portable dog-washing salon raising money and awareness for local animal shelters across New England. Bring one or bring all your fluffy friends for a nice, bubbly bath at one of our seven event locations across New England. We will have dog-friendly vendors, treats, activities, entertainment for the whole family to enjoy, and of course a pet supply drive. 100% of the proceeds from the Subaru of New England Bathe To Save Tour will be given directly back to local shelters so that they can help pets find their forever home.To find out more about the New England Tour click here

About Bathe To Save

Bathe To Save is the brainchild of a family of five from Australia who is passionate about the welfare of our four-legged friends. They are touring America in a 40ft motor coach, towing "Bubbles," an enormous portable dog washing salon that is shaped like a blue dog, and washing dogs to raise money and awareness for animal rescues. Catering to all breeds and sizes of dogs, the Bathe To Save National tour brings traditional grooming services directly to communities, animal rescue groups/organizations, and businesses (especially pet-centric) across the U.S. to not only raise awareness of the benefits of animal adoption but to ultimately save the lives of dogs.
