COLONIAL SUBARU LOVES PETS - CHRISTINE H

On Sunday October 16, 2022, President of Colonial Subaru, Mr. Eric Stamps sent two of his pup loving people to deliver New Pet Parents Kits and Chew-Buru toys to the WET NOSE ADOPTION CENTER, located in Northeast Philadelphia. Christine Hempsey and Eugenia Deleon spent the morning with the Wet Nose Family and six puppies that were just dropped off in the wee hours of the morning from South Carolina. Wet Nose Rescue was founded in 2008 in Southampton, PA. The adoption center is located in NE Philadelphia. Although they are an adoption center, no kennels are in the center. Wet Nose is a 100% foster based rescue center. This means all animals are placed with Foster families until they are adopted and find their FUREVER home. This allows the pets to the attention they need and deserve as well the needed socializing skills that cannot be learned in a kennel. They also offer a variety of classes such as obedience training. Fun events like TRICKS & TREATS DOGGO COSTUME PARTY. They host an array of different adoptions events like Seniors for Seniors, which matches Senior dogs up with Senior citizens looking to adopt a pet, Lisa and Kim along with other volunteers were just amazing to watch interact with the dogs. The love and devotion showed to the sweet little creatures was just a beautiful thing.. So much so that Christine's daughter will be reaching out to volunteer her time. On November 11,2022 we plan to return with more donations from Colonial Subaru's employees. As they are always in need of supplies. *******SECOND HAND ANIMALS, MAKE FIRST CLASS PETS.

Subaru Loves Learning with MaST Charter School - Erin S

This year, we adopted MaST Community Charter School in Philadelphia as our Subaru Loves Learning school. We were able to adopt six classrooms and donate a multitude of school supplies to the 4th grade students. The best part is the boxes themselves get converted into a small garden that the students get to grow milkweed in to attract monarch butterflies. The students were absolutely ecstatic and grateful to receive the school supplies and were also thrilled about growing their own milkweed and hopefully getting to see some monarch butterflies!
