Subaru Fills Phila Union Stadium with Life-Size Cut-Outs of Adoptable Dogs
Dog Talk (And Kitties Too!) (08-30-2020) #690: Featuring Amy Strawbridge, Jeff Van Pevenage, and Barney Scout Mann. Amy Strawbridge is the Experiential Marketing Manager for Subaru (the car dog people love!) and talks about the creative way the company is “filling the stands” at the Philadelphia Union MLS home games for the 2020 season at their Subaru Park stadium in Chester PA: until humans can fill the seats, they are featuring life-size cut-outs of actual adoptable dogs from local animal shelters and promoting their adoption, as part of their “Subaru loves pets” mantra; Jeff Van Pevenage, the CEO of Columbia Grain International, discusses the still unsubstantiated claims that pulses [lentils, peas & beans] were actually contributory to DCM heart problems in dogs, therefore they are underwriting third-party research into a scientific study of whether a dog’s diet is connected to the cardiac disorder; Barney “Scout” Mann talks about his book “Journeys North: the Pacific Crest Trail” and the woman who brought her dog along on the trek.
