Local Homeless Pets Need Forever Homes
Washington Animal Rescue League and Fitzgerald Subaru
Partner to “Share the Love”
A special, one-day pet adoption event on Saturday, December 7
Washington, DC (November 20, 2013) —Fitzgerald Subaru in North Bethesda will host a pet adoption event to find homes
for local homeless pets on Saturday, December 7, 2013.  Fitzgerald Subaru celebrates the annual Subaru end-of-year
“Share the Love” event and is working with Washington Animal Rescue League (WARL) for the special, one-day adoption
event at the White Flint dealership on Saturday, December 7.
Twenty homeless dogs and cats from WARL will be available for adoption at Fitzgerald Subaru from 9 am to 12 noon.
Save 50% off regular adoption fees on all animals. Fitzgerald Subaru will donate $100 to WARL for every animal adopted
on Saturday.
“We are delighted to work with the Washington Animal Rescue League,” said Dottie Fitzgerald, President of Fitzgerald Subaru. “The Subaru ‘Share the Love’ event on December 7th is a fabulous time to show you care about the local homeless pets that need your love and new homes.”
Come see the animals and please bring a pet item for the Share the Love “Stuff-the-Subaru” drive. Donations of pet food
and supplies collected will benefit the adoptable animals at the League and support WARL’s Rescuer’s Food Bank, which
helps families facing financial difficulty hold on to and care for their pets. Donations will be collected during the entire
Share the Love celebration, from November 21 to January 2. The Subaru is at the White Flint location.
“The Washington Animal Rescue League is thrilled to partner with Fitzgerald Subaru and participate in ‘Share the Love’,”
said Bob Ramin, CEO of the Washington Animal Rescue League.  “We have many wonderful dogs, cats, puppies and kittens available for adoption that have nowhere else to go, and we’re thankful to Dottie Fitzgerald and her fantastic staff for providing the opportunity to showcase our animals, collect food for our food bank and for the extremely generous donations.”
For every new Subaru purchased or leased during the “Share the Love” event, Subaru donates $250 to the owner’s choice
of participating charities. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) is on the list of charities. An interesting fact is 70 percent of Subaru owners have pets, more than any other auto brands.  A majority of the ASPCA’s “Share the Love” donation is targeted for distribution as grants to animal welfare organizations and WARL is a recipient of
one of the grants. Grant funding is helping WARL make homeless animals ready for adoption by providing medical care, performing spay/neuter surgeries, administering vaccines, and microchipping animals.
