Thank You Subaru Fort Walton Beach for Helping APL - Christy W

Thank You Subaru for Helping Save Companion Animals in Okaloosa County! The Okaloosa Animal Protection League (APL) is an all-volunteer nonprofit who has served our community since 1981. We believe sterilization is the key to reducing the number of unwanted pets. Volunteers partner with participating clinics to offer a Spay & Neuter program available to anyone in our area regardless of income. APL volunteers were truly overjoyed and honored to have been selected as the Subaru 2019 Share the Love hometown charity. We're also very grateful to everyone who chose our group. Sterilization funding is the hardest to raise yet it is exactly those dollars that will reduce the companion animal overpopulation. This lifesaving partnership with Subaru awarded in May 2020 could not have come at a better time as many people needed help due to COVID-19. We were able to offer additional financial spay/neuter assistance to pet owners who could not otherwise afford the already reduced rate. This generous award also allowed us to partner with veterinary clinics in June and July 2020 for dedicated feline spay/neuter events. Those events resulted in 43 cats and kittens sterilized in just two days! Subaru's generous gift will have a significant and positive impact in our area for years to come. Every cat, kitten, dog and puppy sterilized thanks to this funding will not contribute to the companion overpopulation in our area. On behalf of all the APL volunteers and our community, thank you again to Subaru for helping save companion animals in Okaloosa County!

Subaru Helps Us Save Shelter Souls! - Jennifer H

Saving with Soul Pet Rescue is based in the NW Florida Panhandle where we dedicate our hearts (and SOULS) to saving unwanted shelter dogs and cats. And Subaru has been a HUGE part of that! How so, you ask? Oh, so many ways... First, we do adoption events at the local Subaru dealership in Ft. Walton Beach, FL once a month and they are always (and I mean always) a roaring success. Subaru throws out the welcome mat for us and our potential adopters (they even serve us lunch!) and we almost always walk away with at least 15 adoptions. Second, Subaru has generously awarded us multiple grants to help us with our "SOUL-Saving" - to the tune of more than $20,000 in 2020 alone. WOW! What a difference that made to our ability to take in special needs pets, which is our passion. Third, Subaru was an enthusiastic Platinum level sponsor for our very first "Mega-Event" where we hosted multiple rescues and vendors and raised lots more money for all of us to continue our life-saving work. We also use the local Subaru dealership's parking lot for our biweekly spay/neuter transports, which meet at 3:45am... so the well-lit lot is a perfect location. All in all... we have had a wonderful relationship with Subaru, both corporate and local, and we know if we need something to save a life or two or 100, we can ask for help and they will do what they can. THANK YOU Subaru for being... simply wonderful!

Share the Love... - Steve K

When we got the call to be part of our local Share the Love event, we were overwhelmed with joy. When we met the staff, it was even better. They were enthusiastic about our mission to help Veterans and Children in need of a trained Service Dog. I was able to tell them our story, I will share a little on this post, as well. We fully train bred-for-purpose dogs to become Service Dogs. We take what we consider the finest pups and start training them as early as 6-weeks to assist Veterans with PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injury, Mobility Impairment, and Sexual Trauma; as well as, Children with Epilepsy and Autism. We provide these dogs at absolutely no cost to the recipient. We also provide all of the equipment needed and a lifetime of support. We are passionate about what we do. We believe we do it better than most. We are committed to our community that is largely comprised of military families. A lot of people don't realize that 22 Veterans will lose hope and end their own life every single day. In a community with such a great population of Veterans, it affects us. When the Subaru team heard this, they became passionate. When the event was finished and the numbers were in, we were presented with a check for nearly $15,000. We were absolutely blown away. After talking with the team once again, and taking a few pictures, everyone was fired up about how to continue to assist. We will be acquiring a new puppy in a few short weeks. We were asked if the funds could go to a specific pup, that Subaru FWB could follow from puppy to person. What a fantastic idea. The numbers work almost perfectly to cover the cost of purchase of a very special puppy for our program, a Giant Schnauzer. In a month or so, we will bring the pup by to meet the team that made him possible. We will train this pup for about 18-months before placing it with a new handler. I look forward to them naming this amazing puppy, and following its life of training and pairing up with someone to help them. Subaru of FWB is truly the epitome of what a community partner looks like. We are excited to have this opportunity to work alongside them. We are grateful to them for supporting our mission to STOP 22.
