In honor of our anniversary of Subaru ownership, we’re giving away a prize pack to one lucky winner. Check it out and learn why we love Subaru!

Time for a Subaru Giveaway!

A year ago today, on September 4, 2017, a new addition joined our family: our 2017 Subaru Impreza, affectionately called Steven.

In that time, we’ve had eleven thousand miles of adventures. We’ve navigated New England snow storms, climbed impossibly steep Providence hills, and carted ridiculous amounts of seltzer home from Market Basket. I’ve even become a Subaru Ambassador!

To help celebrate our one year anniversary, The Broke Dog is giving away a Subaru prize pack to one lucky winner!

Why We Love Subaru!

There are so many reasons why we love this car brand, but here are just a few:

Subaru partners with the ASPCA

Since 2008, Subaru has donated nearly $22 million dollars to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and has helped support over 1,500 adoption events. Their actions have helped over 50,000 animals nationwide! My local dealer sponsors adoption events, and the owner even helps cover adoption fees so that more dogs can find forever homes.

Subarus are Safe

Did you know that Subaru is Kelly Blue Book’s most trusted car brand for 2018? Knowing that Subaru is a leader in safety made my car buying process easy. I need to make sure Henry gets safely from place to place!

Subaru Cares About Pet Safety

Subaru sponsored two studies conducted by the Center for Pet Safety, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit research and advocacy organization dedicated to companion animal and consumer safety. These studies conducted crash tests with commonly used pet safety products in order to find the safest options for your pets.

Subaru Loves the Earth

Subaru has been a leader in minimizing manufacturing waste. In 2014, Subaru of Indiana became the first manufacturing facility in the United States to reach zero-landfill status. Manufacturing waste is either recycled or turned into electricity. That’s just one way Subaru helps our planet — Subaru even partners with the National Parks and urban farming initiatives.

I could go on — there are just so many reasons to love Subaru! Can you tell I’m a convert?

  2. My friend and co-worker loves his Subaru, so I am trying to win this for him. He has a Bulldog, so I’m sure he’d loves some of these gifts.

    We don’t own one now, but it was the best and longest lasting car we had. They are really safe.

  4. We’re currently on our fourth Subaru and will continue to own them. We love the comfort, safety, and the fact that we can drive up the icy hills while the neighbors are stuck in their driveways. We have eight dogs that all love their Subaru because it means fun.

    my boyfriend and I both drive Subarus and love them! I love my outback because there is so much room in the back and when we put he seats down my dog has lots of space back there

    I love that Subaru gives back to the world. The donations they make when anyone buys one of their cars are great. There is a Subaru plant here in Indiana – the company has land set up around the factory that wildlife can use. It’s amazing!

    I love the whole idea of this!!! I did not know that Subaru partnered with ASPCA!!! That is awesome. Looking to get a car in a year or so. Definitely will look into getting a subaru!

    I bought my first Forester in 2000 and drove it until late 2017. When it came time to replace it, I bought another Forester. Subarus just keep going.

  12. I love how safe they are, especially in inclement and challenging road conditions.

  13. Trisha Musgrave Reply

    I love how reliable Subaru’s are! We have had ours for many years and have friends that have too. They never give us a problem when it comes to performing!


    I love that Subaru always has dogs in their commercials. I love their commercials. I love that they give back to animals and make sure their cars/trucks are safe for pets!

  15. They are a name that we can trust. I honestly learned a long time ago that you cant trust just any brand especially any brand of vehicle. You have to go with Subaru!

    Subaru is a company you can trust and count on. My mom and dad owned one forever and had no trouble.
