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. 

How is Goldstein Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Happy New Beginnings  –  Alison S

On December 18, 2018, Mohawk Hudson Humane Society (MHHS) was called to assist police at a potential hoarding situation in Troy, NY. Nearly 100 animals were rescued from a condemned home where a couple was hoarding, breeding, and selling them. As some of the first responders to this case, MHHS took on the majority of initial and subsequent care for these neglected animals. Many of these animals had never been handled by humans and were severely in need of veterinary care. Without the support of Goldstein Subaru and Subaru Share the Love, these animals would not have been able to receive the care they needed and deserved. It was essential that each animal be thoroughly checked by veterinary staff who then diagnosed them with any number of potentially expensive medical issues. One such animal is Larry the cat. Larry was five months old when he was found in a crate barely big enough for him to stand up or move around. When he arrived at MHHS, his eye was so badly infected that vet staff had no choice but to remove it. Like many other animals, in this case, he also suffered from severe dental issues. Larry has since been adopted, and now goes by the name Happy. He is living up to his new name, having adjusted to living with one eye and seeking out affection from his new family. Goldstein Subaru and Subaru Share the Love has made it possible for these animals to thrive and have happy new beginnings. The support and veterinary care did not end when these animals were adopted. Many needed additional services, for which MHHS was able to offer monetary assistance to adopters. While this type of care is extended to every animal in MHHS custody, the rapid influx of animals put a strain on the shelter. As of April 2019, all of the animals, in this case, have been adopted. With the support of Goldstein Subaru and Subaru Share the Love, MHHS was able to accept these animals with open arms. Your generosity allowed our staff to go above and beyond with extraordinary care for animals greatly in need. Thank you for all that you do for MHHS, and for being a proud partner in this work. The attached photo collage contains pets from this case that are having happy new beginnings.


Keeping Children Warm  –  Lidia S

Goldstein Subaru donated jackets to the children at our local church. It was such a warm act of kindness. Many families in the community are unable to buy new clothes for the little ones. The faces on the children when they opened them were priceless. Many thanks to Goldstein Subaru.


Mohawk-Hudson Animal Shelter  –  Leonard E

Goldstein Subaru was so generous to the shelter. The Share the Love Hometown Charity donation for the shelter will help in the care of so many animals. Thank you Goldstein Subaru
