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.

2018 Subaru Loves / Pets Adoption Day  –  Brian G

On October 13th Wheeling Subaru hosted Ohio County Animal Shelter for a pet adoption day. We incorporated a Customer appreciation day into the event to draw a nice crowd. We encouraged our customers to bring in items to donate to the local animal shelter, such as: food, treats, bedding, and cleaning supplies. We offered giveaways and prizes to everyone that participated. Several guests even donated money to the shelter. Wheeling Subaru also donated a trunk load of food, toys and supplies. After the event, it took 3 vans to haul the donations to the shelter! The Glenz family pups came in and greeted participants all afternoon and had the run of the dealership to let people know that we always welcome people to bring their dogs in when they come in for service. We have been hosting this event for different animal shelters each October, and is always a huge success for the organizations. Look for emails from us next September to see when we hold next years event. Remember to check out your local animal shelter if you are thinking about getting a new cat or dog.


Subaru and NWF Loves the Earth  –  Molly C

Our Junior Naturalists (7th-10th grade students) volunteered to help us plant our "Subaru Loves the Earth" plants, and they did a great job! We planted native perennials that will attract a variety of pollinators to our garden.


Flood relief efforts in West Virginia  –  Margaret O

Beckley, WV April 6th, 2017 Subaru Share the Love Event Raises over $51,000 for United Way’s. During this 9th year of Subaru’s Share the Love Event, all eight West Virginia Subaru retailers went above and beyond by selecting United Way as their hometown charity to support flood relief efforts in central and southern West Virginia. As the Share the Love hometown charity, customers at Wheeling Subaru had the option to select the United Way to receive the $250 donation when they purchased or leased a new Subaru in November and December. These donations were then matched by Wheeling Subaru. United Way of Central WV, United Way of Greenbrier Valley and United Way of Southern WV were very thankful for these Subaru retailers and their joint effort to raise funds for people most affected by the June 2016 flood. The check presentation was made at the United Way of Southern West Virginia by Subaru retailers from Cole Subaru, Jenkins Subaru and Hometown Subaru.
