Zelda is Feline Fine with Subaru’s Help! - Donna R

All of us at the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society, want to give a huge shout-out to our friends at Evergreen Subaru for partnering with us for another fabulous year with the 2022 Subaru Loves Pets initiative! We are always so grateful for your ongoing support of our work and lifesaving efforts. Together we placed 220 pets into loving homes and wrapped up the celebration with an adoption event at your beautiful dealership on October 30th! We know every adoption is special, but for one feline lady named Zelda, she finally found her human after spending nearly 6 months at the shelter. This 16 ½ year old was sadly surrendered after a good Samaritan took her in but was unable to care for her. Upon her arrival, we quickly learned that Zelda was not feeling very good- blood tests confirmed she had hyperthyroidism. Thankfully with her medication and treatments, she rebounded to her sweet loving self and caught the eye of Jeanne who was looking for a companion after losing her husband in the fall and the passing of her 17-year-old cat shortly thereafter. Our senior pets tend to be the most difficult to place. In addition to their age being a determent, they often also have health problems. Thank you Evergreen Subaru for spending the month with us, helping us showcase our older and longer term residents on your social media and most of all, for accompanying Zelda and Jeanne on their new journey together!

Great Dealership - Michael S

My wife and I just bought our first Subaru. The whole buying experience was exceptional. Robert, our salesman, went above and beyond in costumer satisfaction. At no time did we feel pressured to buy. The finance department was also very good. They made the process very quick and painless. The dealership in general was very inviting. I was able to bring my dog Bear into the dealership with me. He became a big hit amongst the workers. The facility was very clean and they offered coffee, cold beverages, and snacks in the service area waiting room. I like the quick service drop off which is inside out of the weather. Evergreen Subaru has by far the best rating in my opinion. I buy a different car on the average every three years at a dealership. I will recommend and buy again from here.

Evergreen Subaru, a star among Sponsors. - Christopher S

Evergreen Subaru has been a Corporate Sponsor for The Public Theatre for many years. In June of 2019 they went the extra mile when they sponsored our co-production of GREASE with MSMT, one of our most successful productions ever! Above is a picture during a rehearsal. Evergreen Subaru’s Corporate Sponsorship for us is just a part of their commitment to our community. Whenever I attend any event in Lewiston/Auburn, whether it’s a performance at a professional theatre, youth athletic event, arts or cultural event, Boys Club/Girls Club…the list goes on and on, there is a recognition of the many businesses who support that endeavor. Evergreen Subaru is a name on almost everyone’s event. Their generosity is widespread across many disciplines, including education, health care, environmental issues, and many more. It is The Public Theatre’s good fortune to have business leaders like Doug and Lynn Weisz in our corner. It is Central Maine’s good fortune that they believe that part of their success with Evergreen Subaru should be invested in the social and cultural life of the region. Evergreen Subaru is an excellent partner for The Public Theatre. We are very grateful for their years of generous support.

A Safe Place to Shine - Tyler C

Thanks to generous donors like Evergreen Subaru, Summer Camp at the YMCA of Southern Maine is available to all kids regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Thank you to Evergreen Subaru for your investment in our community! If you’ve met Chase Cyr, chances are he’s excitedly told you a story about his favorite place. Summer Camp at the Y isn’t something that the eight-year-old only thinks about when school gets out and the days get longer. It is not surprising why camp is always top-of-mind for Chase. His experience at camp has given him the confidence to do things he never thought he could. Chase’s mother Casey signed him up for camp with the hope that he would be able to practice social skills in his favorite setting: the great outdoors. Chase is passionate about fishing and loves nothing more than holding a fishing rod in his hand next to a lake or stream. The first summer at camp, Chase showed immediate signs of progress: once very shy, he began to interact with his peers, become more trusting and felt comfortable opening up to other kids and to staff. Camp offered Chase a safe space to be himself. And Fishing? It is still his favorite thing to do, and he particularly loves to fish at camp. In fact, Chase became the go-to kid at camp for fishing instruction, often taking other kids under his wing to show them the ropes. Casey says that helping his peers has increased Chase’s confidence dramatically, and is something that he is very proud of. Camp at the YMCA of Southern Maine has had a profound impact on Chase. “The consistency, the experience of being outside with other kids, and of being loved and cared for by people other than me has changed his life”, said Casey.

Evergreen Subaru saves Thanksgiving! - Erin R

This fall we had been setting aside Thanksgiving foods in preparation for our Soup Kitchen's annual Thanksgiving meal. We were hoping people would reach out to see if donations were needed but our phone was not ringing. Then we received an email from Lynn at Evergreen Subaru! We had absolutely no stuffing, corn, or gravy, we explained. We weren't even sure we had enough cranberry sauce, rolls, or mashed potatoes! Before the day was over Lynn had made a generous donation to our Soup Kitchen and we were able to order all of the food we needed! We ended up serving a Thanksgiving meal to over 130 people and they were so grateful! Thank you Evergreen Subaru!

Pets and Subarus – the perfect match! - Donna R

That’s a wrap! Thank you Evergreen Subaru for your continued partnership and another great Subaru Loves Pets celebration! We are thrilled to share that during the month of October, 148 cats, 57 dogs, 11 rabbits, 2 ferrets, 1 guinea pig and 1 chinchilla found their forever homes! But the most fun was had when Evergreen Subaru invited us to host a ‘Puppy Pop-up’ adoption event at their brand new, beautiful home. Within just a few hours, 14 precious puppies were placed into loving families! Evergreen Subaru’s financial support has been key to enabling the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society to be a safe haven for needy pets as well as supporting and engaging our community. We remain grateful for your ongoing support of our work as we save lives and advocate for our animal friends together.

Sharing the Love and Saving Lives Together - Donna R

A BIG thank you to all of our friends at Evergreen Subaru for another great Subaru Loves Pets Campaign! While it looked very different this year (we missed seeing our Evergreen Subaru friends!), we are grateful for the support in our work, and helping us place a whopping 198 pets in just 31 days – finding loving forever homes for 141 cats, 37 dogs, 4 guinea pigs, 4 hamsters, 4 rabbits, 6 rats and 2 parakeets. Here at the Greater Androscoggin Humane Society our adopters and supporters are our heroes and some go above and beyond to better the lives of their pets. Like Sally and Warren who gave Cappucino all the love and patience needed for her to blossom in her new home. Here’s Cappucino’s story… Cappucino came to the GAHS as a stray on August 27 along with 4 other cats that had been left in a box on someone's doorstep. She was by the far the most timid of the group and stayed at the shelter after all the others had found homes. Cappucino struggled at the shelter, and the staff tried ways to make her more comfortable while improving her socialization. Her nervous nature worried the staff, as her stress kept her from eating and she began to lose weight. Almost two full months after arriving at the shelter, on October 24, Cappucino found her match when Sally and Warren decided to bring her home. They have worked tirelessly over the past few weeks to make her comfortable in her new home. Sally has been sharing their story on Instagram, and we have all watched in awe as they truly have tried to meet Cappucino where she is. Sally had this to share: "After we lost our dear cat of 10 years in February, we were heartbroken, and we couldn't even think of a new cat. We wanted to adopt an adult cat if we did make the decision to add a family member, because everyone deserves the love and stability of a forever home. My boyfriend filled out the application and made plans to meet Cappucino without telling me, as a surprise, because he knows how lonely I am without an animal in my life. When he heard how hard of a time she was having at the shelter, it was no longer a matter of meeting a cat to bring home to surprise me with, it was about helping her. Once I saw Cappuccino, she stole my heart. I've been obsessively reading about ways to help her, and we are taking small steps at a time to allow her to adjust as we try and help her be comfortable with the big, wide world of our 2-bedroom apartment and all the love we have for her. We still have a long road to get to a place where she is comfy relaxing with us on her own, rather than having to be lured, caught, or coaxed out of a hiding place, but we will get there. She is definitely a two steps forward, three steps back kind of kitty, but we make progress every day. She's so sweet. She has free run of the house now, and she's definitely gained weight. She's still pretty impossible to approach without her trying to hide, but once we have her she's sweet. We make sure to interact when we don't catch her as well, so that she knows we aren't hunting her or something. I spent an hour laying on the floor, talking to her under the bed the other day. We have finally moved her food out from under the bed, and she is eating, but she's definitely jumpy about it, so we are very careful to be relatively still while she does. She's come so far though. Watching her walk around with her thumbs is hilarious and wonderful. More people should open their hearts to an adult animal who needs them. There are no words for how full it can make your heart. If a story about her helps another animal find a home and a family to love them it would just be that much more amazing to have her in my life. I needed her as much as she needed me. For real.” Thank you again Evergreen Subaru for your continued Share the Love Partnership and making stories like Cappucino’s possible. Best wishes to you all for a wonderful holiday season and we looks forward to seeing you all in person in 2021!

Evergreen Subaru Shares So Much Love!! - Stephanie G

Evergreen Subaru has gone above and beyond to help families from our agency. Sandcastle Clinical & Educational Services was chosen as the hometown charity for Subaru Share the Love by Evergreen last year. The $25,000.00 donation presented to us personally could not have come at a better time and was so appreciated as we worked toward fulfilling our mission and bringing much needed therapy and early childhood education to families in our community. Evergreen Subaru sent their team here to Sandcastle in a desire to learn more about the work we were doing as a partner agency in this community. They toured, they listened, and they interacted with our little ones. Beyond the time they invested in getting to understand our guiding principles, they sent a videography team over to our agency and taped family and staff testimony. They did this to educate their customers and our greater community about services being provided. For the past two years, Evergreen Subaru has set up a holiday giving tree and blessed many families with gifts for the holidays they would have otherwise not experienced. Our partnership with Evergreen has been amazing - their generosity and commitment to our community should make Subaru of America proud. Thank you Evergreen Subaru for being such a beacon of hope to so many families!
