We held our 8th Annual Helpful Honda Pet Adoption to help dogs and cats across Southern California find their furr-ever homes! Throughout March, we held pet adoption events and also provided pet parents with free dog washes, leashes, food bowls, and doggy bags. One excited pet owner explained her appreciation when she told us, “It’s so neat that Honda is supporting local rescues!” Another visitor expressed her relief to us when she saw we were providing free dog washes, “This is amazing! My dog just ran for an hour and was so dirty. I was trying to figure out where to take him for a bath and Helpful Honda is here offering free dog washes!”

We hosted our pet adoption events at Rosie’s Dog Beach in Long Beach, the Sepulveda Basin Off-Leash Dog Park, the Riverside County Department of Animal Services, the Inland Valley Human Society & SPCA, and the Ventura County Animal Services. One family was excited to see what we were up to, “We saw the Honda tents and had to see what was going on. It’s so nice to see you guys out here helping animals.” We joined together with local shelters and rescue groups including City of Long Beach Animal Care Services, Rescue from the Hart, Foxy and the Hounds, German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County, Southern California Bulldog Rescue, I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue, Los Angeles Animal Services East Valley, Inland Valley Humane Society & SPCA, and Ventura County Animal Services. To date, we’ve helped over 600 pets find their new best friend!

So what’s next for us? This May, we’ll be honoring and helping some of SoCal’s most incredible teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week. We’re also going to be popping up at grocery store lots for Mother’s Day weekend to treat moms, moms-to-be, grandmothers, and even great grandmothers to complimentary manicures and massages.
