Our Partnership with Athens Area Humane Society

 



On Tuesday, May 15, Hughes Subaru presented another sizeable donation of $13,443 to the Athens Area Humane Society. Hughes Subaru continued their hometown partnership with AAHS for the 2017 Subaru Share the Love program.

The money was raised during the "Share the Love" campaign by Subaru of America, which allots $250 from each car sale to a charity of the customer's choice. Customers can choose from one of the four nationally partnered charities or the locally-partnered one - the Athens Area Humane Society.

AAHS has big plans for this year's donation. They have recently started an animal transport service to no-kill shelter groups in Northeastern states who have a shortage of animals available for adoption. This has been a great success already for shelter groups all over Georgia to have some relief from the constant influx of kittens and puppies that Spring always brings. This has also revealed a need for a new transport van, also on the list of items to purchase.

 
      
Last year's donation of $ 23,723, enabled the Humane Society to perform over 1000 spay and neuter surgeries on unaltered animals, as well as provided 3 new indoor kennels, toys, food and supplies for shelter and foster animals.

This year, the funds will continue to help fund the shelter's Food Bowl Program, which offers free pet food for owners who may not otherwise be able to afford it. The donation will also help run the humane society's Spay It Forward program, which provides free spay and neuter surgeries for pet owners who cannot afford the procedure. with a special focus on TNR (trap, neuter, release) of community cats

All customers buying a new car during the campaign, which lasted from Nov. 16 to Jan. 2, chose to donate to the local charity. In 2017, the Athens Area Humane Society helped 1,500 animals get adopted, said Jed Kaylor, the shelter director.
