Ernie Boch Jr. Donates Over $40,000 to MSPCA-Angell

Premiere New England Business Owner Hand Delivers Proceeds from Popular #SNELovesPets Social Fundraising Campaign

BOSTON, Dec. 7, 2015 – The love that pet owners have for their animals combined this past October with a wildly popular social media campaign, resulting in a $40,995 donation to the MSPCA-Angell, which will be hand-delivered by Ernie Boch Jr., President and CEO of Subaru of New England on Tuesday, Dec. 8, the two organizations announced today.

#SNELovesPets!

Subaru of New England, based in Norwood, Mass., threw down the gauntlet to pet owners in October, committing $5 for every social media post that included a photo of a pet along with the #SNELovesPets hashtag.

More than 8,000 tweets, Instagram and Facebook posts soon followed, raising $40,995 to fund the veterinary, law enforcement, advocacy and animal sheltering programs at the MSPCA.

WHAT:

Presentation of the $40,995 check from Subaru of New England to the MSPCA-Angell, featuring executives from both organizations gathered at the MSPCA’s Jamaica Plain animal care and adoption center, with staff, volunteers and adoptable animals on-hand for photographs and interviews.

WHEN and WHERE:

Tuesday, Dec. 8 at 11:00a.m. at the MSPCA-Angell, 350 South Huntington Avenue in Jamaica Plain, Mass.
