Ally joins Alex Bowman in a race to help animal rescues

Bowman will take over driving duties from the Ally-sponsored No. 48 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet in the Cup Series in 2021, following the retirement of seven-time champion Jimmie Johnson from full-time competition.

Ally announced Thursday that she is donating $75,000 to the Humane Society of Charlotte, which plans to transfer more than 600 animals to their shelter over the next two months. The donation will help HSC welcome more animals from local transport partners, including animals with special medical or behavioral needs.

Bowman, a rescue dog owner and animal rescue advocate, regularly shares stories from his life with dogs Roscoe and Finn on his social media platforms.

“My dog ​​Roscoe is from a shelter I adopted in 2013 and he’s been with me ever since,” Bowman, 27, said. “Everything about animals touches me, no matter what it is.

“Being at the Humane Society of Charlotte last week really opened my eyes to all they do to help animals in our community. Having a partner like Ally supporting charities, foundations, local businesses and more is amazing.

“Ally’s donation will truly help the Humane Society of Charlotte and help save animals in Charlotte and surrounding communities.”

Although adoptions have increased in recent months, the COVID-19 pandemic has added more pressure on HSC’s resources.

Running the shelter and keeping costs down at the clinic is always challenging, and donations help HSC continue to provide the best possible care to dogs and cats in need.

“As a dog-loving companion with a pack of three rescue puppies at home, I was thrilled to hear that Alex shares my passion for animal welfare,” said Andrea Brimmer, Director of Marketing and Ally Public Relations.

“Our donation kick-starts our relationship with Alex by being strong advocates for improving the well-being of all our loved ones, including pets.”
