Elk Grove Subaru donates nearly $10,000 to local animal welfare organization

Elk Grove Subaru donates nearly $10,000 to local animal welfare organization

Today, Elk Grove Subaru in partnership with Subaru of America presented the Sacramento SPCA with a check for $9,333.10 at its dealership located at 8581 Laguna Grove Drive. The money was raised during Subaru’s fifth annual “Share the Love” event held late last year.

“Share the Love” is an annual initiative allowing customers who purchase or lease a new Subaru to decide which charities would receive a donation from the company.

The list of charities included the ASPCA, Make-A-Wish, Meals on Wheels, the National Park Foundation, and Teach for America. As part of the program, individual Subaru retailers were allowed to add a sixth charity to the mix. Elk Grove Subaru, of the Lasher Auto Group, chose the Sacramento SPCA.

SPCA Pet(s) of the Week- The Three Amigos!

SPCA Pet(s) of the Week- The Three Amigos!

This photo of three (six-year-old) Chihuahuas is enough to get your attention! These three brothers (Duke, Mudd Budd & Buddha) have lived together for their whole lives. Though they are not a mandatory dual adoption, we are looking for a home that can possibly take in all three. They are very sweet and affectionate, but also shy, so we are pretty sure that an adult home without small children will suit them best.
