Thinking About Adopting a Pet? Subaru and the Chicago Auto Show Have Furry Friends on Site

Heading to the Chicago Auto Show this weekend? Subaru is hosting a pet adoption event at their exhibit on the show floor. Through partnerships with two local animal shelters – ALIVE Rescue and Hopeful Tails Animal Rescue - Subaru wants to help pets find their forever homes and owners to find a furry friend to love.

The Subaru display is dog friendly, with an archway shaped like dog bones, soft turf, and plenty of chew toys. (The puppies in attendance for media day looked tuckered out by the afternoon after some journalist snuggling!)

If you’ve been considering adopting a dog or puppy, this is a great opportunity to meet pets who need a home. Even if a new pet isn’t in your plans, Subaru is hosting a homemade rope-toy-making area for those who want to make a toy as a donation, as well as custom pet tags. All of the activities at the booth are free for attendees, and donations go to ALIVE Rescue and Hopeful Tails Animal Rescue in Chicago.

This is a perfect fit for the Subaru Love Promise, which is their commitment to make the world a better place by being a positive force in every community they touch. Subaru Loves Pets is a complementary initiative within the Subaru Love Promise. For more information about Subaru Loves Pets, please visit

“The Subaru Love Promise is just that. A promise. It is a promise to do right by our community by partnering with nonprofit education, health, community, environment, and animal organizations - to set Subaru apart through our deeds and the deeds of our partners. To be unlike any other car company by doing what is right and good, just for the sake of doing it.”
