Default Honda Provides Dog Friendly Elements to The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation

Vehicles to be used to transport rescued dogs

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - Jun 03 —

American Honda Motor Co., Inc., presented two Dog Friendly Honda Elements to the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation last month. Designed with pet safety and comfort as top priorities, both Elements will be used to transport rescued dogs throughout the Western U.S.

?Honda?s Dog Friendly Element is the perfect vehicle to support The Jason Debus Heigl Foundation?s mission,? said Steve Center, vice president of marketing operations for American Honda. ?Honda is thrilled to be able to support their effort to transport rescue dogs and help find them new homes."

?It?s so great Honda has figured out how to make the car rides for dogs ? one of their favorite pastimes ? even better,? said Katherine Heigl, co-founder of the Jason Debus Heigl Foundation. "These pet-friendly vehicles will be a big help for our work with homeless shelter animals who need rescue and medical treatment."

The Dog Friendly Element?s equipment enhances comfort by providing a soft floor surface for the dog's legs and paws along with a dedicated fan and a spill resistant water bowl. Convenience is improved for owners with an integrated ramp that is stored underneath the bed platform and can be easily accessed when the rear tailgate is down. The car kennel was designed and is being constructed by Takata Corporation, one of the world's leading automotive safety systems suppliers. The Dog Friendly equipment group has a manufacturer's suggested retail price of $995.
