Subaru Loves Pets Month - Jill K

During Subaru Loves Pets Month (October), Apple Subaru hosted PACK9 rescue for an adoption event. We set an adoption goal for the month and with their help in advertisement/marketing we were able to meet it! We had 31 dogs adopted during October, one for each day of the month including a double adoption! Apple Subaru graciously made a monetary donation for each dog adopted during the month. In addition, they also donated Subaru Bark Box toys and new pet owner kits for the adopters. We can't begin to express how grateful we are to Apple Subaru and their continued support.

PACK9 Rescue Adoption Event - Jill K

Apple Subaru (York, PA) regularly hosts PACK9 rescue during the year for adoption events. We kicked off October/Subaru Loves Pets month with an event on October 1st. We had two adoptions at the event along with a lot of foot traffic from interested and approved adopters which ultimately has led to more adoptions. We set a goal for 31 dogs adopted in October and so far we are on track! PA Caring for K9's (PACK9) is an all breed rescue based out of Pennsylvania. Our dogs come from high-kill southern shelters. We do not turn down dogs due to medical conditions. We have sponsored endless surgeries, disease/infection treatment, pregnant mamas and Heartworm treatment (which is very prevalent in the south.) PACK9 does not have a physical shelter location. All of our dogs and puppies are transported from the south to PA where they join their foster homes. Our rescue is a non-profit run completely by volunteers with full time jobs/lives and families outside of our organization. We rely heavily on the support of our community. We are very grateful to our friends at Apple Subaru. Their continued support over the years has helped us place numerous dogs in their furever homes and helped bring awareness to our rescue. We love our relationship with them and we are pretty confident that their customers and employees love the adoption event days too. I mean, who doesn't want to hold a tiny puppy, give a belly rub to a bully, hand out treats to the tri-pawds and love on some innocent souls.

York Homeschool Association Field Trip - Daphne M

York Apple Subaru Service Department Manager Scott Gable invited the York Homeschool Association to visit their service department to learn all about the care and services provided to their customers and the work performed on the vehicles that are brought in. Scott went into a lot of detail through every step of the tour and the students experienced a first hand and up close experience in witnessing the vehicles as they had work performed on them. We were also able to watch a vehicle alignment from start to finish. Scott took the time to explain to the students what was happening during each step of the process. This field trip was not only informative for every student that will one day own a vehicle, but we appreciated the experience for the students that wish to go into a mechanics profession some day.

Happily Ever After - Bethany P

PA Caring for K-9's dog rescue held a monthly adoption event in July 2022. This event had a big surprise for us! Sable found her Happily Ever After!! Sable is a bully mix who was set for euthanasia with 5 minutes to spare when a southern partner saved her. She dog tested well in the south, but upon arrival, she struggled majorly with meeting dogs. She comes on like a bull in a china shop. She does not respect their boundaries or their cues. Sable has been working with GypsyK9 Solutions in a board and train program. At this event, Sable showed her mommy just how much potential she has and her mama couldn't help but fall in love. We are so grateful for Apple Subaru to give her the chance to show off her new skills! Happy Tails Baby Girl!

York County Food Bank Gratitude - Kelly R

The York County Food Bank is incredibly grateful to Apple Subaru for supporting us through the Share the Love event. Words cannot express our gratitude for being given the opportunity to participate in this program, knowing the impact that the dollars raised will have in feeding our hungry neighbors in York County. In 2021, through our own programs and through our Food Security Network, we distributed 3.6 million healthy meals to seniors, families, and individuals in need all over York County. We did this with the support of 125 volunteers every week who donated over 16,000 hours of their time. We couldn’t have done it without those volunteers, our donors, and the hard work of our partners all over the county. With nearly 50,000 people facing food insecurity in York County, this is no small accomplishment. But, there is still a lot more work to do in order to create a Hunger Free York. Because of Apple Subaru’s support, the York County Food Bank will be able to provide almost 120,000 meals to those who are hungry in York County. This will be accomplished through our network of collaborative partner agencies throughout York County, in addition to our own drive-thru food distribution, Senior Food Box Program, Give-A-Meal Program, and others.

Bell's 2022 Make the Bed Challenge - Melissa M

Apple Subaru continues to be an inspiration as they show their support for organizations, like Bell, in our community. Tony Schweitzer, the Executive Director of Bell Socialization Services, said, 'The Apple Automotive Group has been such a great partner with Bell! For years they have been providing great, supportive work opportunities for some of our service users at Apple Car Wash Express. They allowed one of their key employees to serve on the board of Re-Source York, another work partner of Bell. The month-long sock drive hosted by Apple Subaru in February resulted in a huge donation of socks and blankets that benefited Bell Family Shelter and other Bell programs, too. And now, to have their generous support as the presenting sponsor of our Make the Bed Challenge is wonderful! It is truly a relationship built on, and supportive of, our mission to lift up the wonderful people of York and Adams Counties!” Words cannot express our gratitude and appreciation for the support of Apple Automotive Group, which has proven time and again its dedication to making a difference in our community. Thank you for making a positive impact that empowers lives throughout York County.

Aliza's 8th Birthday - Bethany P

PA Caring for K-9's hosted their February 2022 adoption event today at Apple Subaru in York, PA. Below is a blurb about our Live Video found on our Facebook page. Today is a very special day. We are here to celebrate a very special girl in the rescue. 1 year ago, Aliza ended up in a kill shelter with signs of being a bait dog and nasty heartworms. Despite the odds against her, Big Valley Animal Rescue, and specifically her savior Haley saw all the potential in her. Aliza found safety in her foster home. She was treated for heartworm and traveled to PA where she arrived in April of 2021. Her first adoption did not work out as their was another dog in the home, so she despite her humans loving her with all their heart, she came back to foster care. She has beaten heartworm, she has overcome skin infections, and has made many friends along the way. Aliza has attended 10 events with her time in rescue and celebrated several holidays with us. Today we want to celebrate her and have a party for her 8th birthday. So with fosters, friends and family, we are are here to have a party with cake and doggy treats in honor of our amazing Girl. Thank you to all the people who have loved on our baby. Thank you to her foster mommy Patty and her foster sister Cassidy for all the amazing love you have given her over the last ten months. Happy Birthday Aliza Jane! Now for the best part, our baby girl found her forever family today and is off to a wonderful forever. We are so grateful to Apple Subaru and their love for our babies. Our fosters, volunteers, and adopters are always so well taken care of. They are so welcoming and accommodating to our needs. PA Caring for K-9's is so grateful for the connection and first adoption event we hosted there years ago as it has allowed dozens of dogs to be adopted at their events over the years.
