Human Animal Bond Association Facebook Live, Subaru Loves Pets and Cats Love Sleepypod


If you missed it, no worries, can watch the monthly Human Animal Bond Association Facebook Live with Sleepypod Co-Founder & Lead Product Designer Michael Leung and Subaru’s Accessory Marketing Manager, Lori Blichasz about traveling safely with pets.This begins with getting cats into carriers. We talk about how behavior modification can help make pet travel happen with ease, and the Sleepypod gives you a head start for sure.

A part of Subaru’s culture has always been to care for the safety of ALL family members, and they’re supporters of Sleepypod and participate in studies regarding pet safety conducted by the independent non-profit Center for Pet Safety. We discuss some of those studies, and how to keep your pets safe when traveling (also what not to do).

Here’s is a Subaru press release demonstrating that they do love pets:

Subaru of America, Inc. today announced that thanks to its participating Subaru retailers and animal-loving customers and supporters, the October 2020 Subaru Loves Pets initiative achieved adoptions for 22,961 animals, with 16 percent of reported adoptions classified as dogs with special needs, affectionately known as “Underdogs.”

“Helping to unite pets with loving homes is one of the most rewarding aspects of our Subaru Loves Pets initiative, and we are thrilled to see more than 20,000 animals adopted,” Thomas J. Doll, President and CEO of Subaru of America, Inc. “Knowing that Underdogs face special challenges on their journeys to loving homes, we are especially proud to have impacted their lives for the better through this campaign.”

In October 2020, Subaru launched a nationwide campaign for its Subaru Loves Pets initiative to champion dogs everywhere, particularly those in shelters, culminating in the second annual National Make a Dog’s Day on October 22. To support the mission, nearly 519 participating Subaru retailers held or sponsored pet adoption events throughout the month, supporting more than 500 local shelters across the country.

As part of the 2020 Subaru Loves Pets campaign, the automaker championed the hard-to-adopt shelter dogs – including dogs with special needs, specifically senior dogs, amputees, visually and hearing-impaired dogs, and dogs with congenital disabilities and physical challenges. The long-standing devotion to the Subaru Loves Pets initiative is why, Subaru is proud to be More Than a Car Company.
