Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.


It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 


In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 


We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide.

West Houston's Share the Love Check Presentation  –  Bianca B

Citizens for Animal Protection is incredibly honored to receive a Share the Love donations from both West Houston Subaru and Subaru of America! Words cannot express our deep gratitude and appreciation for the overwhelming support you give so generously. In true Share the Love fashion, CAP shared the love with adopters to help more pets find homes. In addition to providing financial support for medical care to prepare pets for adoption, the donations are also used to sponsor adoption fees during special adoption events throughout the year. This Summer, CAP held a three month-long Summer Lovin' Adoption special with Share the Love money sponsoring half of all adoption fees. We are thrilled to announce that 933 pets found homes in only three months! Our passion of helping homeless pets is strengthened by the support of our community, together we can achieve great things! Thank you! Bianca

West Houston Subaru Donates Books to Askew Elem  –  Amanda P

A special shout-out from Askew Elementary in HISD to West Houston Subaru! They donated boxes and boxes of STEM books to the Library! The students were so excited to have new books to read! Gloria and her team delivered the books to the Library and were able to take some pictures of the students with the boxes of new books! West Houston Subaru also donated a wide variety of school supplies that I was able to share with the teachers here! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Amanda Polk Librarian-Askew Elementary

Happy Birthday Homeless Pets  –  Bianca B

At Citizens for Animal Protection, we treat each animal as as individual and strive to provide the highest quality of care possible. Our staff are experts in providing medical care, but sometimes we have no choice but to make an educated guess when it comes to their exact age. Knowing their true birthday is just not possible, so we celebrate the universal birthday for shelter pets -Dogust 1st! This year we celebrated by singing Happy Birthday and enjoying pet-friendly birthday cakes, but it is not really a party unless there are presents! Fantastically, West Houston Subaru provided ALL of our shelter pets -almost 200 cats and dogs -with fun and exciting toys to celebrate their big day. It was absolutely clear that the pets knew it was their special day and it lifted their spirits. The dogs loved playing with their Subaru squeaky toys all afternoon. It was a heartwarming sight seeing them so content and happy. Not only was it a joy seeing the pets have fun with their new toys, it was wonderful seeing how much fun the employees of West Houston Subaru had passing out the presents. Thank you West Houston Subaru for giving our homeless pets something to look forward to and thank you for being such a wonderful partner for CAP!

9000 Pets Found New Homes  –  Sandi M

For the past 8 years, Citizens for Animal Protection (CAP) has been honored to work with West Houston Subaru and look forward to what the future brings. Saying that West Houston is a wonderful sponsor of our shelter does not adequately portray the level of compassion and dedication they have given to helping our mission of sheltering, rescuing and placing homeless animals in loving homes and advocating respect and compassion for all animal life. To date, West Houston Subaru has donated more than $538,000 to CAP through general donations, Share the Love events, donations at our annual black tie gala, medical support for needy pets and impressively sponsoring the adoption fees of over 9000 of our homeless pets. That is 9000 pets who can say they found a new home with the help of West Houston Subaru! In addition to the financial donations, West Houston Subaru has donated a new Subaru to CAP each year to be raffled off during our nnual black tie affair ala, with raffle tickets sales totaling $503,000. That puts the total monetary support at over $1,000,000 which is truly amazing! This financial support has made an immense difference in the quality of care we can provide our pets while they are here, but what really matters is knowing that the people at West Houston Subaru are here to support us in any way they can. During the many adoption events at the shelter, Gloria and the West Houston Subaru staff members set up a booth and personally engrave free custom ID tags for all adopters! They usually have a gift for each adopted pet. In addition, 33 West Houston Subaru employees have adopted pets from CAP. Even their customers adopt from CAP, purchase raffle tickets each year and donate pet food and supplies. They are more than just supporters to us -they are family, with a passion for helping homeless animals.

"Furever" Home -"Yappily" Ever After  –  Amy H

Becky came to live at Rover Oaks Pet Resort in 2015. She had been surrendered to Citizens for Animal Protection animal shelter and was not adjusting well to life in a cage at a busy animal shelter. Rover Oaks has a history of working closely with shelter staff at CAP to assist with dogs that need extra time and attention. When we were asked to take on Becky we saw an opportunity to help this sweet girl find a forever home. Becky was boisterous and a very playful girl, requiring an experienced dog owner with older or no children and no other small pets in the home that might be viewed as playthings. Months turned into a year and still the right home hadn't appeared. In November of 2016, Becky injured herself playing and required an expensive surgery to repair her back knee. Our dedicated owner, decided she would bear the cost of the surgery as their was no other options for Becky. She had the surgery and recovery was quite a challenge for this your and active girl. There were quite a few inquiries for Becky but none were the right fit. In 2018, Becky injured her other knee. Rover Oaks had been caring for Becky for almost four years and knew that finding a home would be even more difficult with her latest injury. Everyone at the pet resort loved her and so we held garage sales and fundraisers to pay for the second surgery. Despite all of the employee's hard work and efforts, there was still not enough money to pay for Becky's surgery. Citizens for Animal Protection animal shelter had an upcoming adoption event. We usually have a table at the event to meet the new adopters and introduce them to our services. West Houston Subaru is always at the events as well as they sponsor the adoptions and make pet ID tags for every adopted pet. We shared Becky's story to Gloria Meszaros of West Houston Subaru with no expectations. She listened closely and then said the dealership has a fund for special needs animal at the shelter and would love to help. She even said she had adopted a special needs cat from CAP. West Houston Subaru stepped up and footed the bill for Becky's second surgery. In 2019, A newly hired employee at Rover Oaks met and fell in love with Becky. She brought her family in to meet her and we are so happy that Becky now has her "furever" home and will live "yappily" ever after with a family of her own. Thanks West Houston Subaru for helping us get Becky back in great shape so she can enjoy the home of her dreams!

Home Until They're Home  –  Warner R

The sun was definitely shining on me the day I arrived at the Mission of Yahweh to meet my friend, Kappy Muenzer, who was bringing her friend, Gloria Meszaros, to meet with me to tour the Mission. The Mission of Yahweh is a faith-based shelter that has been empowering, enriching and restoring the lives of homeless women and children by offering shelter and many life-changing programs focused on ending the cycle of homelessness and dependency since 1961. As so often happens when people become aware of the amazing work that occurs, Gloria's heart was touched; she immediately set about to facilitate a miraculous collaboration between her and her husband's company, West Houston Subaru, and an organization that the dealership partners with, Trees for Houston. Voila .. amazing 14,15-gallon trees have been planted on the Mission campus! How this beautiful addition to the Mission has enhanced the campus cannot be overstated. The experience of watching the employees from West Houston Subaru join forces with Trees for Houston to plant these glorious trees was magical and memorable. There was an unspoken joy that permeated the air that day that one could definitely feel. It was truly a "Subaru Love Promise Story". Everyone at the Mission of Yahweh is so grateful to West Houston Subaru for this amazing donation that will bring a sense of beauty, comfort, and peace to thousands of homeless women and children in their "home until they're home" for years to come.

Saving German Shepherds  –  Marie S

Ten years of saving German Shepherd Dogs! That's right, our group has been doing all that we can to save the beautiful breed from certain death at high kill shelters in the large metropolis of Houston, Texas and Harris County for the past ten years. Why? We love the breed, we love all breeds, but this one in particular because they were bred to be our companions and loyal to a fault. How can an owner throw one away? No clue.Over the past ten years we have worked tirelessly to network with the local shelters, other rescue groups, local veterinarians and animal hospitals with the hope that not only will we save more GSD's, but that we will be a part of the bigger picture of making Houston a No Kill City. We all benefit when rescue works. Over that ten years, we have saved in excess of 1,200 Shepherds from certain death. We are able to pull them from the shelters because the shelter staff recognizes this is a partnership. After a dog is "temp" tested (temperament) and determined that we can save him/her, we take them to our vets for a "once over". All shots are updated, and they are spayed/neutered. If they are Heart Worm positive, which the vast majority are, we begin the Heart Worm protocol. When the dog is ready, and cleared by the doctors, they are placed in a Foster Home.Each Foster has been approved by our rescue, the same as all potential adopters are. Home visits are done, and references checked. We do not want this four-legged canine to ever have to worry about his/her next meal, his/her next place to sleep and feel secure, who he/she can trust. When we bring them to the Foster, we call it the "Freedom Ride" because their life has just taken a 100% turn for the better. This is where the love begins, and we don't plan for it to ever stop again.Our adoption fees only cover a small amount of the cost of most of our "pulls". Depending on the age of the dog, those adoption fees can range from $250-$350. If the dog has had injuries from a life on the streets, is diagnosed with Heart Worms, has mange or suffers from malnutrition, the costs can skyrocket. Add on top of that the cost or a spay/neuter . . . well, you can see why the "Love" that we receive from the Sponsorship of West Houston Subaru becomes so vital to our mission. There are cases where our costs to save and re-home a GSD can reach the thousands of dollars. Each case is different, each case is special and each case is deserving.Our relationship with West Houston Subaru began with a simple question from one of our volunteers. "Would you be interested in becoming a sponsor of our annual fundraiser, Jingle Bell Bark & Brew?" Talk about "Share The Love". West Houston Subaru, already believing in the mission of rescue came on board with bells on. OK, maybe not bells but their first two years of sponsorship, they attended our annual event and handed out "recycled banner" leashes to many happy attendees! This past event on December 1st, they had a new model car on display, and not only handed out leashes, but also Cross Trek and Forester dog toys to many happy volunteers and event goers. They even allowed us to attend one of their events - Camp West Houston Jamboree - at the dealership where we were able to showcase some of our rescues, and hand out information about our group. West Houston Subaru's sponsorship over the past three years has had a direct impact on how many dogs we have been able to bring into our program, treat and adopt out to new homes. To that end, we were pleased to surprise them by naming one of our rescued pups this summer "Forester" as a way to show our gratitude. We took photos of "Forester in a Forester" and he put on quite a show - he's a natural. I'm happy to report that he has been adopted and is now happily residing in a family with two other German Shepherd brothers. He has graduated from his Level One Obedience class with flying colors. We could go on and on, because we are passionate about what we do. We are so grateful for this working relationship with the great folks at West Houston Subaru. They have contributed not only financially, but have helped us spread the word by offering us a platform that money cannot buy - the public! Because of them, we have been able to save an estimated additional 10-15 German Shepherds. Because of West Houston Subaru, Our Love Promise Story has a "Happy Tails" ending! Thank you.

Best Puppy Bowl Ever  –  Sandi M

It is what every puppy dreams of, a chance to run down the field with football in mouth, ears flapping in the wind with all of the other puppies trailing behind. This is Animal Planet's "Puppy Bowl". Over the past several years, Citizens for Animal Protection has teamed up with Animal Planet and West Houston Subaru to participate in Puppy Bowl festivities and to help find homes for homeless pets. In 2017, the Puppy Bowl fun came to Houston during Super Bowl Weekend, setting up the playing field in Discovery Green for the entire city to watch in person. More than twenty CAP puppies ran the field! This year the partnership between West Houston Subaru and CAP was featured in a special segment which aired on Animal Planet during the Puppy Bowl. Filming the segment was an experience the staff of CAP and West Houston Subaru and volunteers will always remember with great appreciation. It was amazing to watch the cameras roll -filming our foster puppies riding in a gorgeous Subaru. Each year as part of the Puppy Bowl experience we host fee-waived adoption events with West Houston Subaru sponsoring the adoptions. In 2018, we are thrilled to have found homes for 29 canines on Puppy Bowl Sunday! Citizens for Animal Protection is forever grateful for the support and generosity of West Houston Subaru.

On December 2 2017, a grand time was had by all at the Greater Houston German Shepherd Rescue's annual fundraiser, Jingle Bark and Brew, held at the Kirby Ice House.

Thank you West Houston Subaru for making our pups feel special at Christmas time.

Spooky But Not Scary  –  Sandi M

On October 28 2017, West Houston Subaru sponsored an adoption event at our shelter, Citizens for Animal Protection. Many of the precious pooches and furry felines were wearing their Halloween outfits in anticipation of finding a new home. They were so cute that 38 pets were adopted in one day. Each adopted animal went home with a new pet ID tag with their name and owner's phone number donated and customized by West Houston Subaru. We love you West Houston Subaru!

Raven's New Lease on Life  –  Debbie L

Raven is a 7 month-old Siberian Husky. She was surrendered to Citizens for Animal Protection by her former owner with a traumatic eye injury. Thanks to the good people at West Houston Subaru, who sponsored her medical care, and to the kind staff at Citizens for Animal Protection, Raven received the veterinary care she needed to alleviate her suffering. I was her foster mother and Raven is now a foster failure as she lives full time in our forever home with other Husky, and feline, siblings. She is a very active girl who loves her toys, bones and playing ball. It was great to meet the folks at West Houston Subaru and she loves her warm fluffy Subaru dog bed and the other goodies they gave to her. Life is good!

Books for Our Kids Affected by Hurricane Harvey  –  Sharon T

Sincere thanks to our wonderful business partner, West Houston Subaru, for the boxes of brand new science books that were donated to our children here at Wolfe Elementary. Special thanks also go to Gloria, Theo and Mike for delivering the awesome science books to our very excited students. These books will be given to many of our students during our Literacy Night. Since approximately seventy-five percent of our student's homes were impacted by the flooding caused by Hurricane Harvey, we are trying to collect enough books to help rebuild each student's home library. All of these books are a welcome and needed resource. Again, thank you so much.

Old Records are Meant to Be Broken! 107 Adoptions  –  Jessica E

Thank you for sponsoring our "Clear the Shelter" Adoption Event on August 19th, 2017. We broke a record with a whopping 107 pets adopted during the event. It was crazy busy and the shelter was packed. These boys were so excited to adopt their first pet ever -this beautiful striped Tabby! It was the most pets adopted ever in a one day event. We wish every event could be this busy! West Houston Subaru has now sponsored 5396 adoptions since 2011.

Special Love for the Special Needs Animals at CAP!  –  Jessica M

At Citizens for Animal Protection, we sometimes receive animals that are in special need of immediate medical attention before being ready for adoption. This was the case when we received little Frankie, a 9-month old chihuahua, as he was returned to the shelter by his adopter with a completely fractured front leg. The adopter said he could not afford to get the medical care that Frankie needed and gave him back to us. Our veterinarians assessed his medical condition and it was determined that he would need an amputation of the broken front leg. We knew we would be able to take care of Frankie's needs with no worries as West Houston Subaru had recently set up a Special Needs Medical Fund at our shelter that we can use for just these situations. This fund completely covered all of Frankie's medical needs and the cost of his foster care. Today, Frankie is a happy little boy running around without missing a beat. He has been adopted into a loving home that had previously owned a 3-legged dog. The family has 2 teenagers that love to spoil Frankie with treats, baths and organic perfume. West Houston Subaru even gifted Frankie with a brand new Subaru bed, a Subaru bandana, leashes and other items that he will use. Thank you West Houston Subaru for making a difference in the lives of our Special Needs Animals!

Thank You for the Sponsorship!  –  Candy P

Our family was looking to adopt a fur baby from CAPs and we found our three legged baby, Frankie. He's a special needs dog that was sponsored by West Houston Subaru. We couldn't be happier with our choice. Frankie is super loving, playful, funny and just down right adorable. He fits into our family perfectly and we are so glad he found his furever home with us. Thank you so much West Houston Subaru for all that you do because this is such an important cause. We wish more businesses would be like West Houston Subaru and raise awareness for adoptions and finding furever homes for pets. This is our spoiled little Frankie that we love so much!

Garden Donation  –  Sharon T

Thank you for the incredible garden donation and for the laughs when you came to make the donation!

Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Sharon T

Thirty Adoptions in One Day  –  Kappy M

West Houston Subaru sponsored our "Kick Off to Summer Adoption Event" on June 3, 2017 at Citizens for Animal Protection. They sponsored 30 adoptions focusing on animals that don't get adopted as quickly as puppies and kittens. The dealership sponsored 50% of all adoption fees for large breed dogs, adult cats and VIPs (animals that have been at the shelter for over 3 months). Subaru receptionists, Sam Tannery and Erika Lujano, were on hand to make sure that every animal went home with a pet id tag with their name and the owner's phone number. The adopted dogs received Subaru bandannas and the cats received litter scoops. This makes 5375 pets at Citizens for Animal Protection that their adoptions have been sponsored by West Houston Subaru over the last 6 years. Thank you West Houston Subaru for making a difference!

Wolfe Elem Got Down and Dirty for Earth Month  –  Sharon T

We were so excited when we learned that West Houston Subaru had chosen our school, Wolfe Elementary, to partner with for the 2017 Subaru Loves the Earth initiative. West Houston Subaru, in conjunction with the National Wildlife Federation, donated plants, gardening tools, bird houses, watering cans and even a toad house to create a Wildlife Habitat at our school. On May 23rd 2017, Subaru employees -Gloria Meszaros, John Fitzgerald, and Steve Palmisano, rolled up their sleeves and dug-in to teach the students how to create their own Wildlife Habitat. They even took the time to explain the migration of the Monarch butterflies and the importance of the Milkweed plant to the butterflies' survival. The kids took turns digging, planting and watering their new plants. Children from Kindergarten through Fifth Grade were represented in this event. We don't know who had more fun -the kids or the West Houston Subaru employees!

"Tour for Life" Adoption Event -48 Adoptions!  –  Kappy M

Each year, North Shore Animal League sends their mobile rescue and adoption units to criss-cross the country on a "Tour for LIfe". This year they teamed up with shelters and rescue groups in 54 cities across 32 states. Citizens for Animal Protection was lucky to be chosen as their Houston, Texas stop on March 17, 2017.

The dogs climbed aboard the mobile rescue and adoption unit and 48 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens were adopted that day!!! And you know that West Houston Subaru was on hand to make sure that every one of them went home with a pet ID tag.

Hometown Charity receives $85,000  –  Joanne J

For the 2016 "Subaru Share the Love Event", each dealership had the opportunity to choose a "Hometown Charity". The hometown charity, would allow customers that purchased a new Subaru between November 17, 2016 to January 3, 2017 to choose a local charity for the $250 donation from Subaru. West Houston Subaru chose their neighbor, Citizens for Animal Protection as their "Hometown Charity". The staff really went to bat for the homeless animals of Houston. So many customers chose Citizens for Animal Protection that it resulted in a $60,000 donation from Subaru. West Houston Subaru added their annual sponsorship of $25,000 for a whopping total of $85,000. The funding goes to support adoption events throughout 2017. Over the last 6 1/2 years, West Houston Subaru and Subaru have sponsored the adoption of 5345 adoptions. Thanks so much West Houston Subaru and Subaru for all you do to support the animals finding new homes!

Cats, dogs, hamsters, rabbits and guinea pigs found new homes. West Houston Subaru was on hand to meet the potential adopters and received pet id tags. Even Santa and Sherman (CAP mascot and educator) got in on the excitement.

Sharing the Love by Collecting Pet Supplies  –  JoAnne J

Our partner, West Houston Subaru, cares so much for each animal that comes through our shelter, Citizens for Animal Protection. Since we are a non-profit organization, donations are very important to us. West Houston Subaru wanted to make sure we had plenty of food in our pantry for all of the animals. They hosted a pet supply drive during their national Subaru Share the Love Event by collecting food, toys, beds and other supplies throughout the month of December. We are so happy that West Houston Subaru once again shared the love with us! Thanks for all you do.

Houston Angels Had A Brighter Christmas!  –  Carmen Z

For the fourth year in a row, West Houston Subaru brightened the Christmas for children and seniors, who are in need, through the Houston Salvation Army Angel Tree Program. Each employee became personally involved by choosing their specific "Angel" to partner with for Christmas. Then the employees do their best to provide the angels with gifts from their wishlist. The employees look forward to this event every year and the participation in this program keeps growing! They think it does as much for them as it does for those in need. Thank you West Houston Subaru for all you do!

WHS Sponsors Westside Wolf Band March-A-Thon  –  Joey B

I wanted to take the time and thank you for your generous support of the Westside Wolf Band Program during the annual March-A-Thon on December 11, 2016 in the private Lakes of Parkway Subdivision. This event is a major fundraiser for the high school band. We play holiday music on the residents front steps all over the neighborhood. I absolutely love the March-A-Thon; it's by far my favorite event of the year. There are so many memories made every year. We saw a Middle Eastern family holding hands in a circle dancing, older couples that move their rocking chairs to the edge of the street and hold hands while listening to the music, we get to play and sing Happy Birthday/Anniversary songs to our Lakes of Parkway friends. This year we were made aware of someone that passed away weeks before the event. It was his absolute favorite event of the year in the subdivision. He was really looking forward to the event. We had the pleasure of playing a concert for his wife in his memory. Thank you West Houston Subaru for your support! With the recent instruments that were stolen, we are in dire need (even more than in the past) of financial support. Your sponsorship has truly helped us. Thank you.

Jingle Bell Bark and Brew  –  Charlotte B

On December 3, 2016, the Greater Houston German Shepherd Dog Rescue held their annual fundraiser to raise much needed funds for medical and other animal care needs at the pet friendly Kirby Ice House. The GHGSDR partnered with West Houston Subaru, and other sponsors, in an outpouring of community support. Despite interesting weather, the event had hundreds of participants, a wonderful silent auction, great food, Santa and his helpers, and dogs, dogs, dogs!!! K9 4 Cops put on a demonstration of a routine search effort with Officer Steve and Mack the German Shepherd, showing how they work daily to keep Houston safe. West Houston Subaru provides support to help the animals of Houston are very well known for their contributions to an area shelter and other events throughout the year. West Houston Subaru provided fun Subaru Eco-Friendly leashes for every dog attending the event. The leashes promoted another way to stay green with a creative twist! We appreciate working with such a professional automotive group. Check them out on the GHGSDR website or when it is time for a new or used car. You will be pleased at the ease of doing business there for two reasons, great service and knowing you are helping area animals at the same time.

Teachers at Wolfe Elementary are Surprised!  –  Sharon T

Wolfe Elementary in Katy ISD, is sending special thanks to West Houston Subaru for the wonderful donations of much needed school supplies for their students. Boxes of crayons, map pencils, glue sticks, construction paper, composition books, scissors and much more were able to be donated through West Houston Subaru's involvement with program.

West Houston Subaru "Heroes for Butterflies 2016"  –  Gloria M

At West Houston Subaru, they want to do their part in preserving our environment. Monarch butterflies make an annual migration from North America to the Sierra Madre Mountains in Mexico. It's a journey of thousands of miles. The distinctive orange and black butterflies will rest and mate in Mexico through the end of March. Their numbers are up this year, but no one is celebrating. More than 90 percent of the monarch population has vanished in the last 25 years. The threats are now greater in the U.S. The monarch's habitat and main food source, the milkweed plant, has been decimated in recent years. In April 2016, West Houston Subaru did their part in saving the monarchs by creating awareness with their customers. They created their own "Habitat" for the monarch butterflies that included the milkweed plant. They took the time to educate their customers of the monarch's plight and distributed milkweed seeds to encourage customers to create their own monarch habitat by planting the seeds in their garden or pot.

Citizens for Animal Protection  –  JoAnne J

At these events, all potential adopters are required to go through CAP's rigorous vetting process before animals are adopted. However, the advertising for these events has greatly increased awareness and foot traffic at the CAP facility, which led to an increase in our adoption rates. As a direct result of the West Houston Subaru sponsorship,a total of 2,102 animals have been adopted: in 2011, an additional 526 animals were adopted; in 2012, an additional 508 animals were adopted; in 2013, an additional 860 animals were adopted and so far in 2014, an additional 208 animals have been adopted. The total impact, so far, is due to West Houston Subaru's underwriting of these events. West Houston Subaru's support is not simply writing a check. At these adoption events, West Houston Subaru employees attend these events, man a booth in our lobby, give away free animal nametags, supply gift bags and sponsor transportation crates for all adopters.
