Help For Hobbs - Heather H

Hobbs, was a five month old German Shepherd pup who was tied up in the middle of the night behind the county shelter near the train tracks with a note that said "Please take me home" He was just as cheerful as he could be, but the shelter staff noticed right away that he could hardly walk. His legs just weren't working right. His forearms collapsed to the ground when he walked. His rear legs were floppy. He also had unusual abrasions on his paw pads. The shelter staff knew he needed more help than they could provide, so they called us, and we took Hobbs straight away. We put him in a foster home, where he was doted on and able to feel safe and cared for. He remained sweet and cheerful even though we knew he was in a lot of pain. We took Hobbs to the veterinary specialist, who examined him and determined that Hobbs had sustained extensive damage to his legs. It was determined that we were going to need to raise over $5000 for two surgeries in order to correct his legs. This is not an easy thing to accomplish during a good year, but especially tough during a pandemic! Nevertheless, we went to work fundraising in order for Hobbs to live a pain free life. With the support of Carr Subaru and our rescue network, Hobbs was able to have his surgeries, and successfully fix his legs. Now, he can run and play without being in pain. He has a doggie companion in his new home, and he is definitely feeling the love. Whenever we need support, Ward and Brad at Carr Subaru jump right in to help. They have been incredibly generous with their time and resources to help us with our goals. Their team is terrific in helping us push social media and develop successful events for both fundraising and community awareness. We are so grateful for their support and we look forward to working with them again. Hobbs is the perfect example of why we do what we do. We’re all so happy to have been part of his journey and helping Hobbs have the life he deserves.

Warm Hearts with Carr Subaru - Andrew M

Supporting families transitioning into stable housing for 22 years, the Good Neighbor Center (GNC) is a family shelter that is composed of a small staff of less than 20 people and is entirely supported by the generosity of our community. Each year we are sustained by thousands of volunteers that cook meals, stay overnight, help clean up and perform other tasks to support the shelter staff as they support families and adults transition into housing. We are 100% reliant on our community for volunteers and funding that comes through in-kind items, financial donations and government grants. GNC is proud to have the outstanding support from the team at Carr Subaru who has been supporting us with these wonderful blankets for 2 years in a row. Brad and his team stopped by with four huge boxes of Subaru blankets that are perfect for any folks that walk into our shelter needing relief in the form of a warm blanket. It’s a real comfort to know that the team at Carr Subaru is here to help. In gratitude, Andrew Mahalik, Volunteer & Outreach Coordinator, Good Neighbor Center

Hometown Charity Love - Providence Child Center - Crystal L

Providence’s most fragile patients just received some love from Carr Subaru Beaverton and Subaru of America - $62,000 worth of love. Subaru’s “Share the Love” event was held from November to January, during which time Subaru donated $250 for every new vehicle purchased or leased to certain charities. Customers buying or leasing the vehicles were able to select a local charity from a number of choices. One of the charities offered by Carr Subaru Beaverton was Bill’s Kids Fund at Providence’s Center for Medically Fragile Children. The Bill’s Kids Fund is named in honor of Providence Child Center Foundation board member Bill Schonely, who is also known as Mr. Rip City for his three decades as the play-by-play announcer for the Portland Trail Blazers. The $ Share the Love donation will support the round-the-clock care provided at the center for young people with profound disabilities and complex medical needs. This is the seventh year Carr Subaru has chosen Providence Child Center as its local charity, bringing its total contribution close to $700,000. "Only through community support can the Providence Child Center provide services to hundreds of children of all abilities to help them reach their full potential. Carr has engaged and leveraged resources to care for our community's youth and that is invaluable," says Crystal Logan, regional development officer/women’s and children’s health, Providence Foundations of Oregon.

Sharing the gift of warmth together with Carr - Renee B

Good Neighbor Center (GNC) has been caring for families who are housing insecure for over 20 years. We offer emergency shelter, care and resources for families for 6-8 weeks. We assist the families in overcoming the barriers that contributed to their housing insecurity. We employ 10-14 caring staff and in non COVID times, have about 1000 volunteers. We can do quite a bit with staff and volunteer support, however, the real support comes through our partners such as Carr Subaru. We are 100% reliant on funding through grants, donations, in kind items etc. We were contacted by Brad and his team regarding a gift of 80 blankets. Since COVID struck back in March we have not been accepting used donated items. With 9 families in shelter at any given time, we go through a lot of sheets and blankets. When Carr called and asked about accepting the blankets we were elated! Not only do we have the family shelter, but we are also serving housing insecure adults through the South County Severe Weather Shelter so we were able to share blankets with them as well. We are called to be kind. To show love and support to those who need it most. We are incredibly grateful for Carr Subaru's support. Thank you! In Service, Renee Brouse Executive Director, Good Neighbor Center

Carr Subaru supports Indigo Rescue on Halloween! - Heather H

For more than 23 years, Indigo Rescue has focused on catching the most vulnerable dogs that fall through the cracks of the Portland Metro animal rescue system. Our dogs have very special, individualized and often extensive needs—some physical and some behavioral. When shelters call us, it’s because they have run out of options. This is why we are so excited about Subaru’s Underdog Campaign. We are thrilled that Carr Subaru is partnering with us as we prove over and over again that animals with unique needs can make perfect, one-of-a-kind family members—but it’s not easy. It takes resources, time and patience. For all these years, we have relied entirely on our network of foster homes, but we have never been able to keep up with the need. We are now very close to realizing our dream for a brick and mortar facility, Indigo Acres. It will include a “retirement home” for senior dogs, home-like settings for convalescing animals, whelping rooms for pregnant rescues, training areas for behavioral issues, and boarding facilities for tiny, elderly and medically fragile dogs. It will be a place where staff and volunteers will give many of these special dogs their first taste of a loving home. When Carr Subaru supports us with Halloween and Santa photo shoots, we all have a good time. But more importantly, our special dogs have a better chance for a good GOOD LIFE because of them and the Subaru family. We invite you to learn more about our work, our goals, and easy ways to help us with our project! Visit us at: indigorescue.org --Heather Hines, Executive Director, Indigo Rescue
