We held our 7th Annual Helpful Honda Pet Adoption to help dogs and cats across Southern California find their furr-ever homes! We also provided pet parents free dog washes, had an interactive pet photo booth, and gave adopters complimentary leashes, food bowls, and doggy bags. One excited pet owner explained her appreciation when she told us, “Owning a pet is very rewarding, but it can get really expensive. Getting a free doggy bath is a really nice treat.” Another visitor expressed her relief to us when she saw the Helpful Honda people, “This is amazing! My dog just ran for an hour and was so dirty from the rain. I was trying to figure out where to take him for a bath and Helpful Honda is here offering free dog washes? So perfect!”


Our events were at Rosie’s Dog Beach in Long Beach, the Sepulveda Basin Off-Leash Dog Park, the Riverside County Department of Animal Services, and Ventura County Animal Services. One family was excited to see what the Helpful Honda people 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 Love Leo Rescue, Mae Day Rescue, Pet Orphans of Southern California, I.C.A.R.E. Dog Rescue, Riverside County Department of Animal Services, Ventura County Animal Services and more. In addition, we made a donation to each of our partners to help even more animals in need. To date, we’ve helped over 650 pets find their new best friend!

So what’s next for us? We’re celebrating Earth Month by providing complimentary gas to all Hybrid drivers, even if it’s not a Honda! What’s more helpful? And in May, we’re excited to honor and help some of SoCal’s most incredible teachers during Teacher Appreciation Week.
