The Kapolei-based Oahu Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals recently received $3,000 as a part of Subaru Hawaii’s Share the Love promotion, which donated $250 to local nonprofits for every vehicle sold by Subaru Hawaii from Nov. 1 through Dec. 31.

In addition to the Oahu SPCA, the program also raised funds for Big Brothers Big Sisters Hawaii, Hawaii Wildlife Fund, SPCA Maui and Hawaii Island Humane Society. In all, a total of $30,000 was raised for these groups.

Subaru executives presented the checks last week at Subaru Servco Mapunapuna.

“We are delighted to give back to the community by supporting our local nonprofit partners,” stated Servco vice president Glenn Inouye.

The public also had the opportunity to get involved by voting for their favorite participating organization on Facebook. The Oahu SPCA gained the most votes, earning it an extra $5,000 for a total donation from Subaru of $8,000.

The Oahu SPCA aims to reduce euthanasia of homeless, abandoned, abused or neglected animals. It is the largest animal shelter in the Islands with a “no-kill” philosophy.

“Oahu SPCA thanks Subaru Hawaii for including us in the Share the Love campaign,” stated Oahu SPCA executive director Abigail Bingham. “Generous donors like Subaru Hawaii make it possible for us to continue rescuing stray, abandoned and abused animals. We look forward to working with Subaru on other campaigns in the future.”
