Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida and Subaru of Jacksonville Team Up to Find Labrador Retrievers Forever Homes This Saturday at the Dealership

Jacksonville, FL, July 31, 2014– Subaru of Jacksonville is hosting a pet adoption for Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida on Saturday, August 2, 2014.  “Subaru of Jacksonville, and the Subaru brand, are HUGE animal advocates.  Dogs are always welcome in our dealership, and we couldn’t be more excited to help the LRRoF find forever homes for their great labs,” says owner of Subaru of Jacksonville, Phil Porter.

Labrador Retriever Rescue of Florida, Inc. is a statewide not-for-profit organization dedicated to rescuing and finding permanent new homes for Labrador retrievers. Since 2000, LRRoF has found "furever" homes for more than 7,500 Labs.  Subaru of Jacksonville wants to help increase that number. 

Porter is making sure the dealership is as inviting as possible for its furry guests, and anyone stopping by on Saturday, “We are kicking off our 15th year in business with this adoption event.  We’ll be providing everyone that comes by for the event a free lunch and some presents for our four-legged friends!”

All of LRRoF's Labs reside in foster homes. All of the LRROF’s dogs come from shelters and owners who can no longer keep them. Each Lab is thoroughly evaluated for temperament before being accepted into rescue, ensuring they are not only people-friendly but also dog-friendly. They are also given any needed medical care, including spay/neuter, vaccines and any specialty care they might need. 

If you can’t make it to the event, but you might be interested in adopting one of the dogs, please visit LRROF’s website at and click on Adopt to start an adoption application.

Subaru of Jacksonville is a family owned and run business that was opened in August 2000 by current owner, R. Philip Porter, in order to serve the people of Jacksonville and surrounding communities including Orange Park, Middleburg and St Augustine. We live in the community, work in the community and support our community through sponsorships, volunteerism and community events.We Only Do Subaru - And We Are Passionate About It
