Adopt a Pet from LA Animal Services 
and Join Us to Celebrate
Subaru Loves Pets Month 
Help Hard-to-Adopt Shelter Pets Find Loving Homes
Los Angeles, October 14, 2021 – Throughout the month of October, LA Animal Services is joining Subaru and its retailers to celebrate the Subaru Loves Pets initiative geared towards helping senior dogs and dogs with disabilities get adopted. These dogs, lovingly referred to as “Underdogs”, are harder to place and need a little extra effort to find loving homes. To further show their support of the effort, Subaru Sherman Oaks will donate $100* for every pet adopted from LA Animal Services, now through October 31. 
 
“People looking for a new pet may shy away from adopting these wonderful Underdogs, but these special animals are every bit as capable of giving love and affection. What makes these animal companions unique does nothing to detract from the joy they will bring to their new families,” said Dana Brown, General Manager for LA Animal Services. 

As part of Subaru Loves Pets month, we will also be celebrating National Make A Dog’s Day by encouraging all dog lovers to do something extra special for their favorite canine companion on October 22. What will you do to #MakeADogsDay?

Share on Social

We are also inviting all pet owners who have adopted from LA Animal Services to snap a photo of their pet and share it with us on social media using the hashtags: #SubaruLovesPets #LAAnimalServices #LACityPets -- be sure to tag us @laanimalservices! We’d also love to hear from you, how adopting your furry friend has changed your life! Submit your photos and stories so we can share your pet’s happy tails!
