TRENTON – Stanley Subaru in Trenton offered more than cars early Saturday.
People looking for a new or used car, or looking to get an oil change were in for a surprise.
That’s all due to the furry friends at Hancock County SPCA. Pets ran around the showroom hoping maybe at least one of the animals would catch someone’s eye.
The pet adoption event had different cats and a dog on display.
One Hancock County SPCA official said the goal was not only to get them adopted but also to open people’s eyes to the amount of stray and abandoned animals.
“At the very least it’s raising awareness about the SPCA, our shelter and what we do,” said Jamie O’Keefe, the president of the SPCA Board.
“People are coming in and looking at the animals. They may not adopt today but they may go home and think about it and come to our shelters in the next few days and meet up,” he said.
He also said it meant a lot for Stanley Subaru to open their doors and help the SPCA make this possible.
“Stanley Subaru has been so supportive of us and our cause. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do at the shelter without great partners and business supporters like Stanley,” O’Keefe said.
“Part of our mission as a dealership is to be apart of our community. Be involved in our community,” said Stanley Subaru’s Communications Coordinator Spencer Patterson King.
“The SPCA provides a vital core of that enriching the lives of people who live here.”
