Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide. 

How is Proctor Subaru dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Pets & Their People  –  Sabrina R

On March 21st Proctor Subaru paired with Leon County Humane Society (LCHS) to host its 11th annual "Pets and Their People" adoption event. LCHS brought more than twenty puppies and dogs of all ages and sizes to the event, in hopes of finding them all forever homes. In turn, people from the Tallahassee community came out with family, friends, and even pets to help save and enrich the lives of all of these animals by adopting, donating, and simply sharing their time and love. The event was the most successful to date, with a grand total of 15 dogs getting adopted! The event also featured brunch provided by Sonny's, live musical entertainment, local vendors, and more! It was a great chance for all different members of the community to come together to support this worthy cause. LCHS is Tallahassee's largest no kill, non-profit animal welfare organization dedicated to saving Tallahassee's homeless pets by educating the community about responsible pet ownership and reducing pet overpopulation. "Pets and Their People" provides LCHS an exceptional opportunity every year to spread their mission with the community and find homes for so many sweet pets, for which LCHS is continually grateful. With the great success of this year's events, we can only imagine what we will accomplish next year!


True Love Oneblood  –  Diane A

For the 5th consecutive year, Proctor Subaru teamed up with Oneblood (formerly the South Eastern Community Blood Drive) in early February to put on the True Love OneBlood community blood drive. The event usually takes place around Valentines, so we incorporate a love themed atmosphere for our patrons. All donors are welcome to various goodies, and are entered into a raffle with the chance to win some really cool prizes. This year, True Love OneBlood brought in 36 units of blood donated, and that will account for 108 blood products available for transfusion to sick and injured hospital patients. We love putting on this event, and relish the opportunities that we have to bring the Tallahassee community together. True Love OneBlood is an excellent example of this, and we're proud to do our part. What makes it even more rewarding is knowing that this event ultimately helps save lives. OneBlood is a community asset responsible for providing safe, available and affordable blood to more than 200 hospital partners and their patients throughout most of Florida and into parts of South Georgia and Alabama. OneBlood collects nearly one million units of blood annually, operates more than 70 donor centers and deploys nearly 200 of its signature Big Red Buses throughout its service area for blood drives.


Home for the Holidays at Proctor Subaru  –  Mark K

"A Home for the Holidays" is Proctor Subaru's pet adoption event that takes place annually in conjunction with the Leon County Humane Society (LCHS). This year's event took place on December 6th from 10 am thru 2pm right inside our dealership showroom. "A Home for The Holidays" features fun holiday-themed activities throughout the day including; free holiday photos (complete with holiday props), giveaways and treats for all attendees, and over a dozen foster dogs available for adoption. What's great about this event is that even folks who don't plan on adopting are welcome to bring their pets, and you'd be surprised how many do! It makes for a wonderful atmosphere that certainly encourages adoption. When this year's "A Home for the Holidays" was all said and done, 12 dogs found new homes, which set a new record for our adoption events in partnership with LCHS! This event is all about recognizing and supporting the great work of Leon County Human Society. LCHS is a dedicated non-profit organization that plays a pivotal role throughout the greater Tallahassee Community. Their excellent fostering programs help educate the community about responsible pet ownership. Additionally, the Leon County Humane Society works to reduce pet overpopulation and euthanasia through programs such as Spay and Neuter, Rescue Ride, and Friends Fur Life.
