LEE'S SUMMIT SUBARU SUPPORT MEAL ON WHEELS - JASON B

LEE'S SUMMIT SUBARU IS HELPING DELIVER HUMANITY THIS HOLIDAY SEASON. Millions of our grandmothers and grandfathers are setting the table for one this holiday season. They are more isolated and more alone than ever. Older adults are unable to see their own friends, family, neighbors, and loved ones as they try to stay protected from COVID-19 – which shows no signs of slowing. You can deliver humanity to struggling seniors with a gift today.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Light the Night 2020 - JASON B

Our friends at the Lee's Summit Medical Center put on their light the night event on September 30th, 2020 raising money for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, we were not able to physically attend the event but was able to present a check to the director of oncology and pain management, Paul Mings, to help support this amazing cause. Light the Night brings light to the darkness of cancer by honoring and remembering those touched by cancer and rallying as a community in support of LLS's mission.

2nd Annual #MakeADogsDay Event - JASON B

Not all pets live equal. While some may enjoy a healthy life with loving humans, others may not be as lucky. That's why we're celebrating Subaru Loves Pets by supporting a month-long, nationwide effort to help the last-to-be-adopted pets find loving homes - your home. Every day in during the month of October we will be sharing a pet currently available for adoption at Midwest Animal Resq. For every dog that gets adopted during the month of October, Lee's Summit Subaru will be donating $200 to Midwest Animal Resq. We will also be accepting donations from our customers to give to Midwest Animal Resq in November, along with what we hope is a giant check. To see a list of needed shelter items, please go here. https://www.midwestanimalresq.org/wish-list.html In addition, on October 22nd, Subaru will be celebrating our 2nd annual National Make A Dogs Day by inviting all dog lovers to do something extra special for their favorite dog. #MakeADogsDay. It's just one of the many ways we're keeping the Subaru Loves Pets promise. Subaru. More than a car company™. SAVING ONE TAIL AT A TIME!

Lucky’s second chance at life - Erin Q

When Lucky was surrendered to our shelter you could tell that he wanted someone to love him. He would curl up in your lap (even though he was 50 pounds!) and just soak up all the love you would give him. Prior to coming into our shelter, Lucky was spending most of his time locked in a kennel; only let out once a day if given the opportunity. Lucky needed love. Lucky needed a lucky break. Luckily for him, he ended up at our shelter. From the minute Lucky came to us he was immediately a staff favorite. He was such an easy dog to fall in love with. When Subaru presented the opportunity for us to partner with them, we knew Lucky would get adopted in a heartbeat! Because of Subaru’s generosity and ability to post Lucky on social outlets someone saw his picture and decided to come meet him. They, as we all did, immediately fell in love with Lucky and took him home!! Lucky has now been in his new forever home for two months and the adopters still keep us updated on how he is doing. As you can see, he has a new best fur-friend and is getting all the love in the world! We are so happy that Lucky finally found his forever family.

9TH PET ADOPTION ¦ MIDWEST ANIMAL RESQ - Erin Q

Every year we host an in-store pet adoption event with Midwest Animal ResQ. They are amazing people and love everything they stand for. What Does Midwest Animal ResQ Do? Since 2009, Midwest Animal ResQ has been rescuing dogs from inhumane conditions, in particular saving them from puppy mills and large-scale breeding facilities. Initially focused only on those unfortunate dogs, now with support from the community and businesses like Lee’s Summit Subaru, Midwest Animal ResQ has grown into a rescue group that saves a wide range of animals in the Kansas City area. In 2015, the Midwest Animal ResQ adoption center was opened in Raytown, MO. It serves as a sanctuary for animals that need time to recover from living in inhumane conditions. These animals often need special behavioral help or medical attention before they are ready for their new, loving home. While at Midwest Animal ResQ, animals are fed with locally grown produce from Nature’s Select Pet Foods, they have daily socialization, playgroups with other animals, and they are taught basic training and manners. Midwest Animal ResQ also works with an incredible network of fosters who look after these poor animals until their true home is finally found. Stray dogs in Raytown that are unclaimed are saved from death thanks to Midwest Animal ResQ, and Raytown is considered a no-kill city thanks to Midwest Animal ResQ, the fosters, and your donations. Choosing to adopt from Midwest Animal ResQ means you will be adopting an animal that has had full veterinary exams, has had all vaccinations appropriate for the animal’s age and is microchipped. Comprehensive pet care coverage is also available direct from Midwest Animal ResQ.
