Williams Subaru Loves Pets - Charlotte Knights Bark in the Ballpark & CMPD ACC

Williams Subaru loves pets, and we love supporting organizations and events that are pet-friendly! Our sponsorship of the Charlotte Knights Bark in the Ballpark is one of our favorites, and we're so proud to have CMPD Animal Care and Control there with us conducting free micro-chip checks & registrations along with Jason Gasparik from Registertheirchip. 


As a part of our event sponsorship, we get a space at the ballpark to have a sponsorship activation. This year, we decided to share our space with Charlotte Mecklenburg Animal Care & Control so they could conduct a micro-chip checkpoint & registration. The event typically gets 500 - 700 dogs so the opportunity to check so many animals was very impactful. 1 in 3 dogs will get lost at some point or another, and many of them have micro-chips that are not accurately registered. An unregistered chip makes it very difficult to reunite that animal with it's owners.


Jason Gasparik knows this all too well. He found a lost chocolate lab one evening on a busy street in Charlotte, and when he took her to a animal hospital to check her chip he discovered she had a chip but it was not registered. He could tell Roxy belonged to a loving home that was missing her, so he stood on the side of the road with a "do you know this dog" sign until she was recognized and successfully reunited with her owner. Jason's story gained national coverage and he turned his story into a non-profit dedicated to getting more owners to #registertheirchip. We invited Jason to be our guest in throwing out the ceremonial first pitch at the game and he spread the word about his mission through an on-field taped interview. We're committed to helping spread the word and giving animals the best chance at making it back home safely by getting more chips registered!


Williams Subaru recognizes that your dog is a member of your family, and that's why we love sponsoring the Bark in the Ballpark nights at BB&T stadium and also why we are a pet-friendly dealership! You're not the only one who needs to test drive that new ride.
