West Houston Subaru is teaming with Citizens For Animal Protection (CAP) to support our mission of finding homes for Houston’s stray and unwanted animal population.  

Did you know that seven out of ten Subaru owners have a pet and 60% of all Subaru owners have dogs? As part of their manufacturing process, Subaru purposely makes their vehicles dog-friendly! Many Subaru vehicles have been lauded as great automobiles for pet owners. The Subaru Forrester was named by AAA Motor Club as one of the Top Dog-Friendly Cars for car owners with an active lifestyle. The Subaru Outback was chosen as one of the 2010 Top Ten Pet Safe Vehicles at the Chicago Auto Show. Additionally, the Subaru 5-Door Impreza, Outback, Forrester, and Tribecca were designed with amenities to make traveling with your dog safe, convenient, and fun. Features include a designated pet area and pet gear storage which secure precious cargo while protecting the interior and exterior of your car from pet traffic wear. All of these amenities support your dog in feeling safe, secure, and happy to be along for the ride.


Because they love pets, Subaru has donated over 2.6 million in the last 2 years to various animal welfare organizations. They also encourage their dealers to get involved with local animal shelters. Answering the call to support local pet organizations, West Houston Subaru is teaming with Citizens For Animal Protection (CAP) to support our mission of finding homes for Houston’s stray and unwanted animal population. As CAP was in the process of building their new facility at Barker Cypress and I-10, Subaru quickly took the opportunity to approach CAP about partnering to help the animals. West Houston Subaru owner Gloria Meszaros notes, “ We were so moved by the cleanliness, organization and genuine love for the animals that we knew this was the right partner for us.” West Houston Subaru is a family owned dealership which means they are committed to customer satisfaction and truly care about their customers. As a matter of fact, it is not uncommon to find more four-legged creatures than the two legged variety in the waiting room on any given day.  Stop by and experience their animal friendly staff and line of Subarus at I-10 West and Barker Cypress.


As part of their commitment to the CAP and the animals they serve, West Houston Suburu sponsors many fee-waived adoption events  throughout the year!
