June 28, 2017– Subaru of Pembroke Pines took their mantra “Subaru Loves Pets” to a whole new level by hosting their second Subaru of Pembroke Pines Dog Appreciation Day Pawty. The event was a day to celebrate all breeds, pure and mixed while creating public awareness for dogs that need to be rescued. It honored both family dogs and dogs that selflessly keep people safe, and bring comfort with their service.
At the Subaru of Pembroke Pines DOG APPRECIATION PAWTY, participants enjoyed complimentary barbecue lunch while experiencing tail-wagging dog-themed activities. Event supporters included Young at Art Museum, Paola Paladini Pet Photography, Trupanion, Angie’s Pet Spa & Boutique, Leashes Pet Care, Dog Trainer Lisa Hartman, Dog Scouts of America, Café Ala Carte, Middle River Animal Hospital and The Pet Stop Mobile Vaccine Clinic. One of South Florida’s favorite radio personalities, GiGi Diaz from the 939 MIA Morning Show hosted a Tips & Talk Q&A with professionals to demonstrate how to take care of your canine best, as well as the Pet Supermarket Dog Look-A-Like Contest where the top five participants each went home with a $100 Gift Card.
As part of their commitment to Share the Love, Craig and Martine Zinn, and the Craig Zinn Automotive Group (CZAG) who owns and operates Subaru of Pembroke Pines partnered with Abandoned Pet Rescue (APR), a unique center that stands apart from other organizations in Broward County. They believe in the integrity of the lives of all animals and proudly hold the position as Broward County’s largest no-kill shelter. Their dogs are cared for in a no-cage, “dog-dog free play,” environment which significantly reduces behavioral and socialization issues linked with kenneling. Chase Bank also joined in and donated $2,000.00 towards supporting APR’s mission.
“We are partnered with Abandoned Pet Rescue to help find safe and loving homes for homeless dogs in Broward County,” said Martine Zinn, Automotive Corporate Relations Executive at the Craig Zinn Automotive Group. “By hosting adoptions at Subaru of Pembroke Pines we aim to make a vast difference in the lives of defenseless dogs, individuals and families who all benefit from the love and companionship dogs so willingly provide.”
“Abandoned Pet Rescue was gratified to work with Subaru of Pembroke Pines on an amazing event where our rescues had the opportunity to be adopted. It was a dawg-gone good event,” said, Larry Wallenstein, APR Volunteer.
“Chase is proud to join with Subaru of Pembroke Pines and offer our support of Abandoned Pet Rescue in their vital efforts to rescue, shelter, and find new homes for abandoned, abused and neglected pets in our South Florida communities. This wonderful work is a true investment in civic responsibility, and we thank all involved for their compassionate care and humanitarian spirit,” said Ernest Evans, III, Managing Director, Chase Dealer Commercial Services.
