Sissy's Story - Barbara W

Sissy is an outgoing and friendly, 2-year-old female, American pitbull terrier mix. She loved meeting new people and giving kisses! As Hurricane Ida was approaching her local shelter, Sissy was transported to AWA by one of our rescue partners. Following her arrival, Sissy was examined by our shelter veterinarian. It was found that a portion of Sissy’s lower jaw was broken off, and she was missing multiple teeth. The veterinarian team was able to surgically remove the portion of the jaw that wasn’t fully connected along with the broken and dead teeth and fix her jaw line so that it no longer sagged. A biopsy was conducted to rule out malignancy. Luckily her condition was benign. Sissy was fortunate to have been transported to AWA as the organization is known for its excellent care of special needs pets. The Share the Love event, with Miller Subaru as AWA’s partner, provided Sissy’s prospective new families with an incentive for adoption. The good news is that Sissy was adopted on the very first day of the STL event. Her new family shares they “absolutely love her…has come out of her shell even more…and feel so lucky to her in their lives.” The 1st photo was taken when Sissy first came to AWA. Now look at that happy pup’s smile at her adoption! Thanks Miller Subaru for being a wonderful adoption partner.

May-December Romance - Maya R

I am sharing a love story with you – a love story the shows how the support from Subaru of America and Miller Subaru can make a difference in so many lives. It’s a tale of classic May/December romance between Norman, a 13 year-old Chihuahua and a 6 year-old Brishon Frise Millie. The two dogs were surrendered to AWA together, and it didn’t take long for the staff to realize they deeply loved each other. The sounds and smells of the shelter were scary. All the funny faces speaking “humane baby” to them confused them. And while our amazing staff and volunteers comforted them with pats, biscuits, and playful attention, what brought them real comfort was being together. They were never more than a few feet from each other. When staff came to get Millie from her kennel to have her teeth tended too (she had bad dental disease), Norman tried to follow along. He was not having her out of his sight. They needed to be adopted together, and AWA was committed to finding the perfect family for “this doggy duo with plenty of life experience and eyes only for each other.” For nearly two weeks they waited - cuddled up against each other. When a family came in, they looked up at them and then to each other as if they were saying, “they look nice but are they the ONES?” Then one day sparks flew when Millie and Normal spotted a happy pair walking toward their kennel. They took their eyes off each other, gazed in the eyes of these humans, and proceeded to wag their tails. By supporting AWA as you do, you’re a matchmaker—you help us find the perfect pets for their perfect families. We are so grateful to you for every love story you help make possible. Norman and Millie’s adoptive mom has kept us updated on their progress. The two dogs are embracing the third dog in the household, an AWA alumna, Baby, as though she were their own. It’s truly our favorite kind of story, and we couldn’t have done it without the entirety of the AWA community—especially you.

Tonka Motors to a New Home - Maya R

Subaru and Miller Subaru...you are the best! All of us at Animal Welfare Association love you for your generosity and support. Even with all of the challenges presented this year by COVID-19, we all still had a very successful Share the Love event. During the month of October - together- with you as our partner - 133 pets found new, loving homes...cats, dogs - and even one rabbit. Here is just one of the many adoption stories from STL. Tonka, a 1 year old, white and black/gray stray cat, was originally brought into another local, overcrowded shelter, which unfortunately was already swamped with other cats. Because of AWA’s successful transfer program, Tonka was lucky enough to find himself brought to our shelter where he received a thorough intake exam by our shelter veterinarian. During that exam, we discovered that Tonka had a heart murmur. This meant that Tonka would now be considered a special needs pet, one requiring extenuating veterinary care – and a special adopting family. (Each year, approximately 60% of pets received into AWA’s care will require extenuating health and/or behavioral care while in our shelter.) Living a hard life outside – fighting for survival, then transferred to an overcrowded shelter, and then transferred to AWA, weakened little Tonka. He developed a difficult upper respiratory infection. He was treated in our isolation unit, receiving fluids, medication, and special food – all designed to build up his immune system. We knew he needed to be in a secure foster home to help him gain his strength, and a foster family stepped up to help him get healthy. Here is how he was described by his foster family. “This guy is sweet, playful, curious, and full of personality. He loves head rubs, eating hair, sniffing your face, has absolutely no concept of personal space, will head bump you, and enjoys curling up next to you and making muffins on whatever part of you he can reach (he really loves humans). He likes toys on strings he can chase, running after golf balls, and using his scratching post/boards. He also really enjoys a nice window to look out, a comfy blanket to sleep on, or a bath mat to lounge on once he’s ready to “chill”. He just a fun guy to be around and full of personality.” Pretty good praise for a former street cat! While still living with his foster family, Tonka was placed up for adoption during the Share the Love Event. And here is the good news…Tonka will never have to leave this safe, loving home. He has found a permanent home with his “foster” family – another wonderful Foster Failure. Through the STL event, WE made Tonka's chance for a new life happen. Together with you, WE made the other 132 adoptions happen too. Our partnership is special. May it continue through the next decade and beyond.
