Portland, OR. Lithia Subaru of Oregon City is “sharing the love” with the pets at the Oregon Humane Society in the form of a $51,080 donation. The gift marks the largest donation from Subaru’s Share the Love event in the five years since OHS was first selected as one of the local participating charities.
