Subaru and Center for Pet Safety Partner for Pet Crate Safety

Our pets are like family, so when traveling, their safety is just as important as ours! In order to raise awareness about pet crate safety while traveling, Subaru and the Center for Pet Safety (CPS) have joined together in a partnership. They recently released the results of their 2015 Crate and Carrier Crashworthiness Study and we’re here to let you know what products received the best ratings.

After running the study, Subaru and CPS came to the conclusion that the three products listed below provided the most effective levels of safety for pets.

1. 2015 Top Performing Crate – Gunnar Kennels G1 Intermediate with 8’ Tie Down Straps
2. 2015 Top Performing Carrier – PetEgo Forma Frame Jet Set Carrier
3. 2015 Top Performance Carrier – ISOFIX-Latch Connection and Sleepypod Mobile Pet Bed with PPRS Handilock

Michael McHale, Subaru’s Director of Corporate Communications, said, “Alongside Center for Pet Safety, we are proud to help lead the charge in identifying the best crates and carriers for pet lovers everywhere, while, more importantly, making pet parents aware of the safety measures they can take and the dangers that can occur if they don’t.”

One of the main components of the Subaru Love Promise is helping animals. Locally, we work with the Dakin Animal Shelter, while nationally Subaru partners with the ASPCA and the National Wildlife Federation.

Crates and carriers are so important when traveling with your pet, as they protect them from becoming a projectile in case you’re ever in an accident. For more about pet crate safety, click here.
