Subaru and the Center for Pet Safety to Test Pet Car Safety Restraints

- Subaru to fund a quest for the top performing safety restraints so consumers can keep their best friend as safe as possible on the road

- Lawmakers in Subaru of America's home state of New Jersey are the first to consider the requirement of pet restraints when riding in vehicles

Cherry Hill, N.J., March 5, 2013 - Subaru of America, Inc. today announced a partnership with the Center for Pet Safety, a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit research and advocacy organization dedicated to companion animal and consumer safety, to fund testing of pet car safety restraints.

Currently, there are no performance standards or test protocols in the U.S. for pet travel products. Although many manufacturers claim to test their products, without test standards, these claims cannot be substantiated. Together, Subaru and the Center for Pet Safety will create standards for testing restraints, while announcing those that perform best.
