Haddad Subaru has had a long-standing relationship with the Berkshire Humane Society. This year for National #MakeADogsDay, General Manager Chris Kramek reached out to the Shelter Director John Perreault to see how Haddad Subaru could help a dog in need.

John told Chris about JoJo, a sweet dog who came to the shelter a couple of months ago. JoJo was partially paralyzed in her rear legs. After having her thoroughly assessed the veterinary team determined that surgery was not a good option for JoJo. The best option for JoJo would be a doggy wheelchair.

After hearing JoJo’s story Chris and the Haddad Subaru team knew exactly how they could #makeadogsday for JoJo. They purchased her a great set of wheels. JoJo took to her new wheels quickly and her current foster parents are working with her to gain confidence in her newfound mobility.


The wheels are going give JoJo a better quality of life and we hope it will help give her a better chance of finding her furever home. General Manager Chris Kramek said “It is really great to see JoJo move about so freely. It is so wonderful to see something we were able to do directly impact a dog’s life in such a great way. We can’t wait to see where JoJo’s wheels take her.
