On Saturday, June 4 and Sunday, June 5, Brilliance Subaru of Elgin hosted a massive pet adoption event. More than 650 people attended and more than 150 animals were adopted.
The Road Home Mega Adoption Event was part of an ongoing partnership between Anderson Humane and Brilliance Subaru of Elgin, through which the dealership hosts the "Rescue Dog of the Day" two days each week. The event was also a local expression of Subaru Loves Pets, a national initiative dedicated to getting animals out of shelters and into loving homes.
"There’s no doubt these once-homeless animals and their new families will be changed forever," said Beth Foster, President and CEO of Anderson Humane. In fact, within the first hour, all the puppies in Anderson's first batch were spoken for. "In spite of iffy weather on Saturday, we managed to get over 130 dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens into forever homes," said Beth. "By the end of the event on Sunday, 156 adoptions had taken place – a record weekend!"
The Brilliance Subaru team was also excited to see the event come to such successful fruition. "Personally watching the love and joy families experienced adopting a rescue animal was very emotional for all of us," said Kevin Keefe, owner of Brilliance Subaru of Elgin. "We cheered and celebrated every adoption. The Brilliance Subaru and Anderson Humane teams coming together for one sole purpose was magical."
