Our Partners: Sellers Bowman Subaru
Driven to get more pets into loving homes by supporting the 2016 Mutt March
May 5, 2016
Dogs love going for a car ride, and this spring, Sellers Bowman Subaru in Macomb is helping local animals get the most exciting car ride they could ever ask for – a ride to their new, loving home!
To create more of these rides home, the dealership is partnering with the Michigan Humane Society as the presenting sponsor of MHS’ 2016 Mutt March, taking place on June 5 at the beautiful Edsel & Eleanor House in Grosse Pointe Shores.
While this represents a tremendous leadership role in this fun and festive community event that changes hundreds of animal lives, their support of the Mutt March doesn’t end there. They are forming walk teams from the sales, service and parts departments and management, which will compete against one another for the top fundraising honors in order to help MHS save more animal lives.
“Sellers Bowman Subaru is proud to partner with the Michigan Humane Society,” General Manager Ron Redfern says. “It’s a natural fit for us since Subaru is dedicated to supporting efforts within the local community, and, of course, we share our customers’ deep passion for animals. We look forward to leading the pack as the 2016 Mutt March presenting sponsor!”
For a minimum $1 donation, the dealership’s customers can get in on the fun and post a Mutt March square, personalized with their pet’s name, right on the showroom wall. The wall speaks to their customers’ generosity as it already represents hundreds of dollars in support of area animals in need.
In March, MHS brought a “family” of dogs, who actually do share a loving home, to the dealership to film a video that is in the spirit of Subaru’s engaging advertising campaign. The video will be used on their social media networks to showcase Seller Bowman Subaru’s love for animals and their support of the Mutt March. To watch the video, visit www.michiganhumane.org/subaru.
“We have always been committed to giving back to the communities that have contributed so much to our lives, by advancing programs that we believe will enrich the lives of others,” Redfern adds. “And to us, nothing enriches you more than saving the life of a companion animal.”
The road of life is even better when it’s traveled together. We hope you’ll join the Mutt March fun and stop by the Sellers Bowman Subaru tent to let them know you appreciate their “drive” to help homeless pets!
