On Saturday, March 22, 2014, Patriot Subaru had a double-header event at the store.
First, a Dog Adoption, in coordination with Maine Lab Rescue, while simultaneously holding a Blood Drive with the American Red Cross. Great success!
Maine Lab Rescue is based in Windham, ME and are an all-breed dog and cat rescue. The majority of animals are saved from high kill shelters or circumstances such as natural disaster like a hurricane. When they are brought to Maine, they live in foster homes until they are adopted. Fostering helps the animals adjust to the surroundings of a home.
At the Patriot Subaru event, Maine Lab Rescue brought in 13 dogs, mixed breeds. Patriot made a donation of $100 to the cost of each adoption, which averages $350. At the end of the day, 9 dogs had found loving new homes. It was a great time for everyone.
While that was going on, 34 pints of blood were being donated to the American Red Cross. This is a life-saver!
Patriot Subaru thanks everyone who joined in to make both programs a great success. We'll be doing it again for sure!
