Jay Lee, general manager of Rairdon’s Subaru of Auburn recently presented Phil Morgan, president and CEO of the Auburn Valley Humane Society, with a giant check from the Subaru Share the Love Event.
AVHS received more than $18,000, which will help the organization feed, shelter and provide medical care for lost, abandoned and homeless animals in the community.
AVHS is one of the nonprofit organizations named as a local charity for the Subaru campaign in Auburn. It marks the sixth consecutive year that Rairdon’s Subaru and the shelter have collaborated for the drive (Nov. 16 to Jan. 2). At the shelter, more than 9,600 animals have been housed, provided medical care and adopted with the support of $169,193 raised from the Subaru events in those six years.
“These funds supplement our ability to care and provide new homes for kittens and puppies as well as senior dogs and cats,” Morgan said. “No one is more grateful or loving than a dog or cat, and we’re looking forward to helping more animals to get the second chance they all deserve.”
Over the last 11 years, through the Share the Love Event, Subaru of America and its retailers have donated more than $140 million to national charities and more than 1,170 hometown charities.
