Lynnes Subaru is sponsoring an Animal Adoption Event in partnership with the nonprofit group, Supporters of the Bloomfield Animal Shelter, on Saturday, November 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at their dealership at 379 Bloomfield Avenue in Bloomfield.
Bloomfield Shelter staff and volunteers will be on hand with cats, kittens and dogs available for adoption. There will also be face-painting for the children. Lynnes Subaru will provide refreshments and giveaways for those who attend the event.
If you are unable to adopt an animal but want to help the shelter, you can stop by at the event and drop off donations for the animals. Items needed include: dry/wet kitten and cat food (Fancy Feast), dry and wet dog food (Pedigree or Science Diet preferred), cat litter, and everyday supplies (regular unscented bleach, paper towels, hand sanitizer, contractor grade garbage bags, detergent, dishwashing liquid, liquid hand soap, hand sanitizer). Blankets and towels for bedding and other uses are also welcome.
Lynnes Subaru has chosen the Supporters of the Bloomfield Animal Shelter (SOBAS) as their Hometown Charity for their 2016 “Share the Love” program. Lynnes will be donating $250 for every car sold or leased between November 17, 2016 through January 3, 2017, to SOBAS or four national charities. The purchasers/lessees of the cars designate the charity of their choice.
The Supporters of the Bloomfield Animal Shelter is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization formed to hold adoption events and raise funds on behalf of the Bloomfield Animal Shelter. The Township of Bloomfield runs the shelter and provides the daily necessities for the animals. Donations to SOBAS are used for extraordinary veterinary expenses; educational and outreach materials for the public; supplemental food, supplies and training assistance for BAS animals; and other costs not covered by the shelter’s budget. All donations to SOBAS are tax-deductible.
