Aim to Surpass Record of (280) Fur-ever Adoptions & Help Four-Legged Friends Find Two Legged Ones Across SoCal

Did you know: In California, over 500,000 companion animals are euthanized each year because they don¹t have homes?

In an effort to help SoCal¹s two-legged residents find new four-legged friends, the SoCal Honda Dealers and the Guys in Blue are hosting theirannual Helpful Honda Pet Adoption events with local shelters and rescue groups throughout the month of March. At the Helpful Honda Pet Adoptions, there will be a variety of Œpurrks¹ such as adoption fee discounts, face painting and more! All adopted pets will be sent home with a new leash and water bowl, and a supplies donation will be made to each local shelter or rescue group. Last year, the Guys in Blue helped saveover 280 pets during their events and are hoping to set a new record this year.

Raising awareness for adoption as one of the most humane and beneficial ways to bring a new pet into the family and help decrease pet overpopulation andeuthanasia is just another way Helpful Honda is continuing its commitment to being helpful in the community. On Valentine’s Day, the Guys in Blue surprised thousands of residents with complimentary roses.  Everyday, theblue shirts can be seen in the community doing other Random Acts of Helpfulness such as cleaning up local parks and shopping plazas, opening doors, carrying groceries, providing tissues during cold season, and handing out water to help people cool down when it¹s warm outside. Why? Because it¹s their job to be Helpful!
