COLORADO SPRINGS — Heuberger Subaru teamed up with the Teller County Regional Animal Shelter to raise funds and get more animals adopted.
The shelter has around 1,000 cats and dogs each year, according to officials.
Wags and Wishes Gala is on November 2 and all proceeds will go to the shelter. One person will win a three-year lease on a Subaru Crosstrek, or the value of the car. The raffle tickets are $50 apiece, but the shelter is being sponsored all month, so you can donate anything for pets. Donations can be dropped off at the Subaru location.
“Subaru is passionate about pets,” Teller County Regional Animal Shelter Executive Director Lisa Robertson said. “We were their partner in the Share the Love event because the last two years everyone who gets a new car from Subaru can pick us as their nonprofit, and we get $250 for every car that gets that. We actually broke the record, and it’s a really good thing for the shelter.”
On October 22, Heuberger Subaru is hosting an adoption where dogs from TCRAS will be adoptable on-site at the dealership.
