Subaru and Families of Sick Children - Bonnie K

For the 3rd year, Reliable Subaru has helped Springfield's two Ronald McDonald House programs through their Share the Love Event. Raising more than $40,600, these funds are providing families of sick children a place to call home during their child's hospitalization. Helping up to 24 families on any given night, the Ronald McDonald Houses specialize in providing a “home-away-from-home”, comfort and kindness when it's needed most. We’ve welcomed nearly 14,800 families since our program began in 1988. Thanks to the generosity of Reliable Subaru, we are able to provide a hopeful, peaceful, courageous place for families. We do our best to take away as many worries as possible so our families can focus on their ill child.

Underdogs Juneau and Brownie Love at Last - LINDAKAY W

This is the story of two dogs that needed love and found it with the help of Reliable Subaru. Juneau, a Catahoula mix dog is beautiful and stunning to see. As we discovered after she was left at our shelter, Juneau is partially blind and fully deaf. She is a very sweet dog and we would not have been able to diagnose these issues with clarity without the help of funds from the Subaru Love Promise promotion. Juneau was adopted to a loving home, that understands her health issues and loves her for who she is in October. Another of our Underdogs is Brownie, a chocolate lab mix dog, around 8 years old. Brownie was found one morning when our staff came to the shelter. Brownie had been left, abandoned in the night tied to our gate. He is a truly loving dog, full of energy like a puppy even though we think he is close to eight years of age. We were able to give Brownie a through vetting, checking him as a senior dog for any issues that come with age, We were able to do this through help from the Reliable Subaru funding from Subaru Love Promise for pets. Brownie found a true loving Forever Home in October. Both of these dogs had issues, Juneau, deaf and partially blind, and Brownie, a senior dog that many shelters would have euthanized. We thank Reliable Subaru and the national Subaru organization for assisting our shelter with vetting costs that helped these deserving dogs go to their loving "Forever Homes".

“Home-Away-From Home” - Bonnie K

Reliable Subaru’s “Share the Love” Event Provides a “Home-Away-From Home”for Families of Sick Children Every year, hundreds of families find a “home-away-from-home” at Springfield’s two Ronald McDonald Houses while their seriously ill and injured children receive treatment at local hospitals. This is only possible because of great people and companies like Reliable Subaru, Subaru of America Inc and of course, amazing Subaru customers! The Ronald McDonald Houses were built on the simple idea that nothing else should matter when a family is focused on healing their child. The Houses help families during one of the most vulnerable and scary times of their lives. Thanks to efforts like the “Share the Love” Event, the Houses are able to take care of families so they can be there for their sick child. On any given night, up to 24 families are staying at Springfield’s Ronald McDonald Houses.

Ozark Humane Society, Harrison Arkansas - LindaKay W

On September 3, 2020, our shelter received a call from the Boone County Arkansas Sheriff, informing us of a hoarding situation in a very rural part of the county. The Sheriff's department as well as the Boone County Prosecutor's office, asked our shelter for help with over 30 dogs and puppies, some chained up, others running loose without food, water, or shelter. We stepped up and helped rescue these abandoned dogs. We were able to get all 34 dogs out in one day, thanks to four-wheel drive vehicles and trailers. All of the 34 dogs were infested with fleas and ticks, starving, and dehydrated. After being vetted, the dogs were shown to have a bacterial infection that required treatment for 3 weeks. We were able to take 12 out the 35 dogs and were able to nurture them back to perfect health. During their treatments, we started preparing the dogs for adoption by making sure they all had their shots and were spayed or neutered. Thanks to Subaru's generous support during the Subaru Loves Pets Adoption Event, we were able to cover most of the costs of preparing these deserving dogs to go to their Forever Homes. Thank you, Subaru, for helping us offer these abandoned and abused dogs a better life filled with love, warmth, and affection. Linda Kay Watters
