Peacock Subaru Hilton Head’s plan to pay it forward throughout October helped rescue dozens of pets in peril and helped dozens more find homes.
The auto dealership supported Palmetto Animal League’s first-ever virtual adoption event on Thursday, Oct. 8, by helping to showcase PAL’s adoptable pets. The event, which included fee-waived adoptions made possible through a generous grant from the ASPCA® (The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®), led to the adoption of 34 pets in the span of just one week.
“We watched a lot of lovely animals go to great homes thanks, in large part, to our Partner in Rescue Peacock Subaru,” said PAL President Amy Campanini. “Their dedication to introducing PAL’s adoptable pets to the community via video, Facebook Live and their pet-friendly dealership resulted in a beautiful wave of adoptions.”
As another way to support the PAL Adoption Center, Peacock Subaru pledged to donate $100 to PAL for every pet adopted in October, leading to a generous donation of $3,100 and even more pets finding their forever home. As a private, non-profit rescue organization with no government funding, PAL relies on kindhearted businesses and individuals to fuel their compassionate, no-kill animal rescue programs.
“Improving animal welfare is something that we continue to support in the Lowcountry and Savannah,” said Peacock Automotive President & CEO Warner Peacock. “Organizations like PAL provide a crucial service in the community and we’re glad to contribute to their efforts.”
Peacock Subaru and Palmetto Animal League have partnered on many other life-saving adoption events over the years, including their Subiestock concert event each October from 2016 to 2019 and their once-in-a-lifetime Puppy Bowl debut in February of 2019.
“As a Palmetto Animal League Partner in Rescue, Peacock Subaru embraces our mission to build a community where every neglected animal has a second chance at life,” said Campanini. “We look forward to saving more lives together in the years to come.”
