On April 3, 2019, the Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter received a check from the Casey Subaru dealership located on J. Clyde Morris Boulevard for $18,437.
This generous gift and donation was raised as part of a promotion from Subaru Corporation “Share the Love event” that ran from November 2018 to January 2019.
For two months, on any sale or lease of a Subaru from Casey Subaru, the Subaru Corporation would make a donation, along with the Casey Auto Group, to the shelter.
The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter strives to meet the needs of the communities that we serve by caring for stray and owner surrendered animals however, all too often, the shelter receives animals that are in need of specialized medical treatment.
“This donation will help us support these animals in need, which will allow us to save more lives,” said Roger Iles Shelter manager.
The Peninsula Regional Animal Shelter (PRAS) is a collaborative venture supported by four separate Hampton Roads communities: Newport News, Hampton, Poquoson, and York County. This 30,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility is managed and operated by the City of Newport News on behalf of the four jurisdictions. This "open-admission" shelter contains a full service veterinary clinic for the shelter animals and has capacity for approximately 100 dogs and 180 cats, as well as pocket pets and other small companion animals. The shelter's primary responsibilities include holding stray animals until they can be reunited with their owners, rehoming owner-surrendered pets, and facilitating pet adoptions. The shelter also houses animal control offices for the participating jurisdictions.
