Under the event, $250 from each new vehicle sold by Subaru Hawaiʻi dealers between Nov. 1 and Dec. 31. was donated, the company said in a press release announcement.

“SPCA Maui knows the solution to ending ‘homeless cats and dogs’ is to ‘fix’ them though with the rising costs of spay and neuter procedures many Maui pet parents can’t afford,” said SPCA Maui executive director Peter Tierney in a joint press release. “Subaru Hawaiʻi’s Share the Love helps us provide affordable ‘fixes’ for Maui’s dogs and cats that everyone can afford,” said Tierney.
