Prestige Subaru selected Asheville Humane Society as the Hometown Charity for the “Share the Love” event which kicked off November 19, 2015 and ran through January 2, 2016. The event brought in $23,574 and the check was recently presented to Asheville Humane Society by Prestige Subaru. Subaru of America donated $250 for each new car bought or leased, allowing the buyer to choose from five national charities and Asheville Humane Society.

Tracy Elliott, Executive Director of Asheville Humane Society said, “Asheville Humane Society is incredibly grateful for the support we have received once again from Prestige Subaru, Subaru of America, and our community. This generous donation will further our mission to give animals in our community the best possible care so they can not only live, but thrive.”

Prestige Subaru’s Anthony Pelle was thrilled that event donations would support animals in need. “We are very excited to present Asheville Humane Society with another check from our annual ‘Share the Love’ event. They sincerely go above and beyond making sure that each animal gets the care they need and deserve, said Pelle.
