Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide.

Georgetown Subaru Brings Blankets and Smiles  –  Alyssa W

Georgetown Subaru brought blankets and smiles to many patients receiving treatment at Dell Seton Medical Center at The University of Texas on July 26, 2019. This was such a special day for Rick of Georgetown Subaru because his brother-in-law, Forrest, was treated at this exact hospital just 10 months ago. Forrest was diagnosed with a rare blood cancer and was given a slim chance of survival. Thanks to the nurses and doctors at Dell Seton at UT, Forrest was able to join Georgetown Subaru to deliver warmth and hope to other patients being treated there. Forrest spoke to almost every patient in the room and let them know how wonderful their nurses and doctors were. It provided so much hope for everyone in the room. Each patient accepted their blanket with a smile on their face. Thank you to Georgetown Subaru for helping to bring light to the darkness of cancer, and supporting the mission of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society!


Subaru of Georgetown Helps Keep Austin Wild  –  Hayley H

Subaru of Georgetown chose Austin Wildlife Rescue (AWR) as their hometown charity during the Share the Love event. AWR rehabilitates and releases orphaned and injured wild animals and educates the public to co-exist with wildlife. We help 6,500 wild animals each year that are brought into us from Austin and several surrounding counties. As a small non-profit, we depend fully on donors, fundraisers, and grants to continue our mission. Last year, the donation from Subaru helped us complete our new wildlife rehabilitation facility when we were running low on funds. We were able to successfully open in April of this year and we would not have been able to do that without Subaru of Georgetown. We recently received the funds from this year’s Share the Love event totaling $42,362! This gift will help purchase much needed medical equipment for our new facility. Thank you to Subaru of Georgetown and everyone that chose Austin Wildlife Rescue as their charity recipient! Thank you for keeping Austin wild!

St. David's Georgetown Cancer Center  –  Jessye P

St. David’s Georgetown Cancer Center received blankets, arts and craft kits and messages of hope this year from Georgetown Subaru on July 5th. Representatives from Subaru, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and the Hospital sat around the table talking about how cancer has been in our lives, when one of the representatives from Subaru said his mother had just finished her radiation treatment last week at the center. The nurse leaned over, looked at his name tag and realized he knew his mom and had been her nurse throughout her treatment. The Patient Access coordinator, as well as the transfusion nurse were so excited about the arts and crafts kits for the children that come in while their mom or dad are getting treatment. They were also very excited about the hope cards that the customers of Subaru had filled out for them. The Patient Access coordinator, a cancer survivor, shared how much the patients would appreciate reading words of encouragement and receiving the blankets, having that support from their community to help uplift their spirits. It was such a special day being able to spread love, hope and warmth to those fighting for their lives.


The (Sales) Force Makes My Tail Wag, Says Anakin!  –  Sheri S

Anakin, the movie guy I was named for, once said: "Mom, you said that the biggest problem in the universe is no one helps each other." I, Anakin the Service Dog, know the opposite is true at Subaru of Georgetown where the extraordinary sales "force" broke its record in the 2016 Share The Love campaign and raised $57,842.82 for Service Dogs, Inc. I wanted to bark for joy but kept it to a professional tail wag, as I and my partner SDI grad Doug Fullerton watched GM Rick Davis and his colleagues present the Millennium Falcon-sized gift to SDI President Sheri Soltes. You see, all the dogs and I at SDI come from animal shelters. SDI breaks us out and trains us to help folks who can't hear or walk or have other health Rancors, Wampa and Gorogs. Thanks to the heroes of Subaru of Georgetown and other donors, SDI provides me and other specially trained dogs free of charge. If it wouldn't kill the franchise, I'd recommend Subaru of Georgetown to fix that mess in the universe my screen version was complaining about! In the meantime, they'll have to just set a stellar example on this planet. Anakin, Service Dog to Doug Fullerton Service Dogs, Inc. Alum
