Subaru and our retailers are committed to protecting and preserving the Earth, not just by our words, but also by our actions.

Since 2018, as part of the Subaru Loves the Earth initiative, Subaru and retailers across the country have partnered with TerraCycle® and have collected over 9 million pieces of hard-to-recycle trash from their communities. Items such as snack bag wrappers, coffee cups, or used cabin air filters from service areas have been diverted from landfills and given a second life by TerraCycle when it is converted into durable furniture and other usable items.

Environment

Health

Subaru believes we all should have a chance to lead a healthy life. That's why Subaru and its retailers, like us, partner with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society® (LLS) and their local hospital or cancer treatment center to give warm blankets and encouraging messages of hope, written by retailers and Subaru customers in their stores, to support patients facing cancer. Through our partnership with LLS, we've supported nearly 300,000 cancer patients nationwide. We're proud to be LLS's largest automotive donor.

Subaru believes all pets deserve a loving home. That's why Subaru and its retailers, like us, host adoption events and donate $100 to our partner shelter for every pet adopted during the month of October*. Through our partnership with local and national organizations, we have donated over $51 million, which has supported the adoption, rescue, transport, and health of over 420,000 animals. We're proud to be the largest corporate donor to the ASPCA.

*Subaru retailers will donate $100 for every pet adopted from partner shelters from October 1, 2023 through October 31, 2023 up to $3,100 per retailer.

Finding FURever at Subaru

Ewing Subaru of Plano hosted Abandoned Pet Project for an adoption event on 10/21/23 and it brought so much joy to the customers, staff, volunteers, and especially the animals! They were greeted by so many smiling faces, pets, play, and cuddles! The pups all got toys and such to take home and were each able to have a private photoshoot in the amazing dog park at Subaru! The customers and staff were generous in donations, we were able to spread awareness about our animals and mission, had people signing up to volunteer and foster, even having one employee sign up to foster. Devin fell for a sweet but shy puppy, Greta, we had there with one of her siblings and decided he wanted to bring her home and help her learn how to dog and come out of her shell. Well, after a few weeks Devin and family decided they just couldn't part with Greta and she is in the process of becoming a permanent member of the family! We're so happy for everyone involved and congrats to Greta on finding her FURever at Subaru!

Picture This!

Subaru is well known for their community activism and support of local causes. We here in North Texas are especially fortunate to have Ewing Subaru in our corner. Several times a year, Kathy Gaden, who is a professional pet photographer and wife of Subaru manager, Jeff Gaden, hosts a photo event at the retailer. Pet owners are invited to come and have professional portraits taken of their pets at no cost. They are encouraged to make a donation to the animal welfare organization that Kathy selects. We at Going Home, A Rescue Transport, have been the beneficiary of this event several times. In addition to the money donated by the pet-parents, Ewing Subaru makes a very sizable donation to us. This event is great fun and our volunteers are always eager to participate. Tamala and all the staff at Ewing Subaru go out of their way to make us feel welcome, including feeding us lunch! Everyone is a good sport with cats, dogs and even guinea pigs all around the retailer floor. With her professional backdrops and props, Kathy produces some amazing photographs. She takes all the time she needs with each pet to get the perfect shot. Because of their generosity, we are able to continue our mission to transport street and shelter animals out of harm's way and give them a second chance of a happy life. Ewing Subaru of Plano truly "walks the walk" when it comes to spreading love in our community.

Mother of Life Center Fundraiser

Our Students For Life Group outreached to Subaru and met with Bruce Morrow. We were met with genuine kindness and ultimately gifted with so much support. Bruce's generosity helped reach our goal of donating over $1,000 to the Mother of Life Center. In addition to financial support, we got to meet Bruce's puppies and felt the contagious happiness all around the room. We truly appreciate Bruce's time and effort and I will continue to recommend Subaru because it is full of charismatic workers. Thank you again from the bottom of our hearts!!

The Subaru "Love" Connection

In February, we were once again invited to participate in a fundraising event that is sponsored several times a year by Ewing Subaru in Plano. The spouse of the manager is a very talented professional pet photographer and she offers professional shoots to the public at no cost. Donations are encouraged and go 100% to the non profit. These events are usually scheduled around holidays. We operate on a shoestring and this event coupled with the very generous check we receive from the dealership has allowed us to easily reach our fundraising goals for the past three years. Ewing Subaru in Plano really "walks the walk" in their support of the local non profit community, especially animal related entities. We are so grateful to Ewing Subaru, the Gadens and all the folks at the dealership who make this such a fun and profitable event.

Sock for emergency shelters

Hope's Door New Beginning Center is a 501c3 nonprofit serving Greater DFW, Dallas and Collin counties in Texas, Our mission is to provide safety and services to those affected by family violence. We have two emergency shelters providing safety for up to 54 women and children at a time. Often those we shelter come with very little in the way of personal belongings as many must flee to safety with little time to pack. Ewing Subaru has been a wonderful supporter of our shelters. They provided blankets one winter and most recently provided four boxes of new socks for the women and children we serve in our shelters. This may not seem like a big deal for those of us who do not have to worry about clean socks but to someone who has so little, a new pair of sock means so much! We want to share this story and raise awareness about the compassion Subaru has for those in need in the community. We are most grateful for their support.

Happily Ever After

I would watch Vet Ranch on YouTube every Saturday morning and I loved following each animal’s story. One day I checked out the Abandoned Pet Project’s website and saw Happy. He was a precious little thing listed as a fospice due to heart issues from heartworms, and I was worried that would make him less adoptable. A few weeks later Abandoned Pet Project had an adoption event near me. I decided to stop in quickly to see Happy in person. And that sealed the deal! He really is happy. His tail is always wagging and he loves giving kisses. I brought him home a couple weeks later and he fit in seamlessly. Now it feels like he’s always been a part of the family. Despite having minor heart issues, he is having the time of his life playing with his dog siblings and cuddling with me. Thank you Ewing Subaru Of Plano, Vet Ranch and Abandoned Pet Project for saving Happy’s life!

Ewing Subaru Blanket Delivery 2019

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of North Texas had the amazing pleasure to partner together with Ewing Subaru on June 26 for their Subaru Loves to Care Program. As one of 8 neighborhood retailers, Ewing delivered 80 blankets and 10 arts and crafts kits to Texas Oncology Plano West, while also conveying hope, warmth, and uplifting words of encouragement to those currently being treated and battling for their lives. Each blanket came along with a personal note of hope written by the customers and staff of Ewing that the patients absolutely loved reading. The Subaru staff personally handed out these blankets and chatted for a few minutes getting to know each patient. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of North Texas is beyond appreciative for the kindness and commitment of Ewing Subaru not only for our mission but also to those in our local community. Seeing the joy on patients’ faces as the blankets were personally delivered was extremely rewarding and heartwarming. We are honored to collaborate with an organization that offers back to the absolute most meriting individuals and carries light to the darkness of a cancer diagnosis.

Ewing Subaru of Plano, heart of gold.

I’m a pet photographer with Picture Perfect Pet Photography and I’m also a volunteer for Take Me Home Pet Rescue in Richardson, and was contacted by Ewing of Subaru of Plano to do a Christmas dog photo shoot for their dealership this past December ‘18. Ewing Subaru of Plano donated $500 to Take Me Home Pet Rescue for the event, and contacted me to do several other events the following months, donating all money to Take Me Home Pet Rescue. I can’t thank Ewing Subaru of Plano enough for all that they have done for Take Me Home Pet Rescue, and continue to do for them. The animals at Take Me Home Pet Rescue say thank you, too!
