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.

Happy car. Happy cats. Happy family. - Barbara W

Thank you Miller Subaru for these many years of friendship and support for Animal Welfare Association’s mission and for the pets we care for everyday. With your partnership, we completed another successful Share the Love event (2019), and so many of our shelter dogs and cats are now spending the holidays, safe with their new families! Through Subaru of America, the annual “Share the Love” adoption events, and through the kindness and generosity of the Miller Subaru family, Subaru has donated their time, funds, and in-kind goods to our local charity, making a difference in our community. Here is a picture of our recent kitty ambassadors that we placed at Miller Subaru. That turned out to be a lucky decision for Mommy Jaycee and her kittens Paisley and Lionel. This bundle of cat-cuteness was spotted by a longtime Subaru owner who was having her car serviced. After the servicing was completed, she then returned for the cat family! Now the family is tuned up and purring away in their home! Happy holidays! Thank you Miller Subaru.

Miller Delivers Warmth and Hope to Penn Med Virtua - Stacy K

On Tuesday, July 9th, Miller Subaru delivered warmth and hope to cancer patients receiving outpatient treatment at the Virtua Samson Cancer Center in Moorestown, part of the Penn Medicine | Virtua Cancer program. The delivery was met by Administrative Assistant, Kristin Hurley as well as the Cancer Center Director, and Senior Patient Access Manager from The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Stacy Keizman. After receiving the delivery, hospital staff took Subaru representatives on a tour of the cancer center- including the new infusion suite, and a special salon where patients are fitted for custom made wigs and are taught to tie scarves to increase their self-esteem and confidence. The group was also told how the blankets and craft kits will benefit patients- including how the craft kits can be used at their Camp Oasis- a one day “camp” for kids coping with cancer in the family. Hospital staff shared that the art kits can be used for therapeutic activities during the camp.

When LOVE is at the heart of caring for others - Gregory W

Tiny Benjamin was admitted to Legacy's Shafia House - a program for children and youth with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. He was just six years old. While his father was imprisoned, he had to be removed from his mother due to severe neglect. Benjamin came to us unable to speak or communicate in any way. He had never attended a day of school and his awareness of other people or how to interact with them was nonexistent. The only activity that he seemed interested in was spinning in circles by himself, never making a sound. Watching TV or playing games was foreign to him. This fragile child was underweight and the only food he would eat was plain white bread, quite possibly the only food he had been exposed to in his young life. Where to even begin? The work needed with him seemed insurmountable, yet our experienced and dedicated team saw a light inside that they were determined to make shine.In the early days, you could walk into Shafia House and find the Behaviorist and clinician spinning in circles with Benjamin, and it was at that time he began to notice that he could interact with them. Our program director was able to introduce toy trucks into playtime with “Benji” now our affectionate name for him. As time progressed, Benji continued to grow both emotionally and physically. He began to expand the foods he would eat, play more games, enjoy going outside and playing on the newly installed therapeutic swing set, especially going down the slide. He began to point at items he wanted (very early communication) and then grunt (early ability to make vocalizations). One day, when Benji was asked to stop playing a game and move onto a new activity, he said “No!” While defiance is not normally encouraged in our programs, this day it was celebrated! Benji spoke his first word! Today, Benji continues to work on his ability to speak and verbalize his needs. If you walk in the door at Shafia House, you can expect a hug from Benji and for him to climb on you like a human jungle gym. His favorite foods now consist of chicken nuggets, pizza, pasta, ice cream, and PB&J, like any typical six year old. This is one example of hundreds that are able to take place due in part to the support of Miller Subaru and the Share the Love campaign. Benji is just one child that has been helped by Miller’s generosity and belief in our mission – To change the behavioral health and social outcomes for people of all ages from surviving to THRIVING. If that is not LOVE on display I don’t know what is. Gregory Wilson Executive Director The Legacy Treatment Services Foundation
