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 Subaru of Melbourne 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. We are really involved with Animal causes and what concerns our Subaru customers.

Subaru Loves Pets - Fall in Love Adoption Event  –  Theresa C

Founded in 1952, the Brevard Humane Society (Central Brevard Humane Society) is Brevard County’s oldest established animal welfare organization. A “no kill for space” shelter, the Humane Society is dedicated to speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves. The Humane Society educates the community on responsible pet ownership and the humane treatment of animals, advocates for spaying/neutering to reduce the homeless pet population and provides the best quality care to Brevard County’s abandoned animals by placing them with responsible, caring owners in “furever” homes. The Brevard Humane Society is proud to have been selected as the Hometown Charity for Subaru of Melbourne. Since 2016, Subaru has donated a total of $57,228.79 to help us care for the homeless and abandoned animals in Brevard County. Over the years we have held several adoption events at Subaru of Melbourne. Our most recent event for Halloween included a pet costume contest with prizes awarded and goodies for all who attended. The event was a huge success with seven dogs finding their furever homes. These events also give us the opportunity to bring awareness of the Brevard Humane Society and its mission to the community. We are extremely blessed to have the support of Subaru of Melbourne and hope to continue this wonderful relationship for many years to come.


Subaru Loves to Care  –  Barry B

Hi Brett We met in June of 2018. My wife and I are volunteers for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in Melbourne FL. It was so cool to work as partners and give blankets to cancer patients at the infusion center. When you focus on good, I always say "you never know who you are going to help "Fast forwarded to May 2019. That is when I was diagnosed with Leukemia. I've been in treatment since June 2019. I'm responding well. The going in plan is to be on daily oral chemotherapy for the rest of my life. With a very good prognosis. There is a chance in 2 more years we may be able to attempt to halt treatment. 2022 here I come! Now slowly rewind to 10 days ago. I received a blanket from Subaru and the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in the mail. It was totally unexpected and really touched me. I wanted to let you know how much it means to me. It means a lot. I am very thankful for our partnership. My family, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Subaru. Thanks so much. Tell everyone. We are very open about my condition, if there is anything I can do for you don't hesitate to ask. By the way we have 3 cats and 2 Subarus. They travel with us, Mimi likes to drive LOL. Katie was our sales person. Awesome....Thanks for helping us. Barry and Michele Birdwell

A trip no one ever wants to make  –  Nate P

In August 2019 my wife and I received a call that no Grandparent ever wants to receive. “Your 15 year old grandson has been diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin Lymphoma.”We needed to get from Melbourne Fla. to Long Island N.Y. ASAP to help our Family. My first thought was pack and get my 2018 Outback ready to safely make that drive. I went directly to Subaru of Melbourne. As soon as I told the Service folks and the salesman my car was totally made ready for that long hard trip. Thanks to Subaru of Melbourne that worry of is everything OK with the car was gone. Within no time we were on the road with the relief a great car on the safest car will get us to NY to help our family. Seven months later our Grandson finished his chemo treatments and was declared Cancer free. Thank God and thanks to a great Subaru we made it through a NY winter and were able to return to Melbourne Florida.
