Spitzer Shares the Love

On Saturday December 9th Spitzer Subaru held there annual Basket Raffle to benefit the Bob Perks Fund. They have been holding this event for a couple years now and they continue to have a great turn out for this amazing cause. There were dozens of baskets and prizes to put a ticket in on. Along with that they had all kinds of great snacks and refreshments for everyone to enjoy! This is a great event to help raise funding for local cancer patients that help cover day to day costs of living. Make sure you put it on your calendars for next year!

Spitzer Subaru Loves Local Learning!

Spitzer Subaru along with Subaru of America supports learning during the Subaru Loves Learning Event. Spitzer Subaru adopted a local classroom at C.G. Johnson Elementary School. They supplied a large amount of classroom supplies collected during their month-long supply drive at the dealership, on top of that Spitzer Subaru went above and beyond to supply the entire school of students with new pencil boxes and pencils. The day they dropped of the supplies at the school they were greeted by the entire 3rd grade class. It was great to see how excited the children were to receive these tools and supplies to learn with! The children even sang the Spitzer Jingle for the employees dropping off the supplies. Heartwarming is an understatement!

Subaru Loves to Care

Smiles aren’t something you always see at our local Cancer Center. But on June 23rd this year there were plenty of smiles to go around! Spitzer Subaru and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society presented dozens and dozens of soft warm blankets to the patients at the Hahne Cancer Center here in DuBois, PA. Along with the blankets, Spitzer Subaru asked customers of the dealership to write notes of encouragement for the patients as well. Which was presented with the blankets. Spitzer Subaru has been partnered for this initiative with the Hahne Cancer Center for multiple years now. After speaking with the patients and staff you can clearly see what a positive impact this programs brings to the center! Blankets bring comfort and comfort brings smiles!

Spitzer Subaru road cleanup

On April 22nd Spitzer Subaru once again celebrated “Keeping Pennsylvania Beautiful.” A good number of employees and volunteers spent the morning picking up litter and trash along local roadways in DuBois. They even hauled a busted up car bumper out of a ditch! Not only did employees and volunteers spend there Saturday morning cleaning up trash, Spitzer Subaru also has a year long initiative on recycling through the Terracycle program. They encourage the community to bring in items to the dealership such as K-cups, snack wrappers, and other plastic products for recycling. Subaru loves the Earth isn’t just a one time event. It’s a on going program put in place to help make this Earth better every day!

Sharing the Love is so amazing!

The Elk County Humane Society was so honored to be partnered with Spitzer Subaru again this year for the Subaru Loves Pets® program. We took full advantage of getting the word out way before October so we could prepare our community of this incredible opportunity and oh did the community step up to help! We plastered Facebook with information and so many people just shared and shared our posts. We had two places of business step forward and invite us to come to their places to bring available pets to meet the public. The events were promoted as being part of the Subaru Loves Pets program with Spitzer Subaru being acknowledged along with ASPCA. The first was held at the Straub Brewery Visitor Center on October 7 at their Apple Fest, where we had 5 volunteers take several of our adoptable dogs who were able to walk among the crowd of people and get some incredible photos taken. The second event was held on Sunday October 15 at the St Marys Eagles Lodge which is just minutes from our shelter. With the help of six volunteers, we were able to take most of our dogs and 20 kitties to meet the public. We had an overwhelming response to this event. People came specifically to meet some of the animals that were listed as available for adoption. I am ecstatic to report that two of our "underdogs" found their forever homes that day along with a kitten who went home on foster. The first adoption was Chief, our deaf Dalmatian. Chief came to our shelter in 2020 from South Carolina as part of our program that we rescue dogs from that area from the "high kill" shelters who are slated to be euthanized simply for space. He was adopted shortly after coming into our facility but unfortunately in May of this year his adopter became ill and his dying wish was for Chief to come back to us to find his next home. Well he was now over 6 years old and being deaf we knew it would not be as easy as the first time to find his new home. Since May we had many people inquire about him, but just never found the right place. But on this day, a mother and her son came to the event and we instantly knew he met his new family! The second adoption was Jade, our sweet little Pit Mix who had a very rough start in her life. Jade came to us when she was just a little over a year old. Her entire time before was spent in a small wire kennel that she had no room to grow in causing her to have issues with her spine and hips. Along with these defects, came the problems of her not having total control of her bladder and bowels. A lady and her daughter who come to the shelter often to volunteer had been telling a family member about sweet Jade. So the entire family came to the event to meet her and oh it was love at first sight! We are always getting updates from the lady and her daughter when they come to volunteer on how well things are going at Jade's new home. On October 21 Spitzer Subaru invited us to come to the dealership with some of our adoptable pets for a fun filled event. With the help of five volunteers from our shelter we able to take three of our dogs and 4 of our kittens. We were welcomed by Curtis Smith and Jeannie Dunworth and several other staff members from Spitzer Subaru. Spitzer provided snacks and drinks for both human and furry guests. They also provided several items to be used as raffle prizes to help raise funds for the shelter. Our event was from 11:30am until 4pm. We had an amazing turn out of people and their pets. Spitzer Subaru always goes above and beyond to ensure that we have a successful event. The first week of November we were able to go back to Spitzers to pick up all of the items that were collected during the month of October and it absolutely filled the vehicle! Lastly I would like to mention that Curtis Smith also helped our shelter receive the ASPCA Subaru Grant this year. Our shelter, like so many others are having financial problems. We are running at the largest deficit that we have had in many years, so with the grant money that we were awarded it was a tremendous help in getting all of our animals that were adopted during the Subaru Loves Pets event ready for their adoption. Somehow when I say "thank you" to Curtis and Jeannie and all the staff at Spitzer Subaru for what they have done for us, it just doesn't seem like enough. I know that our shelter is definitely blessed to be partnered with them. Spitzer Subaru and all of the Subaru family absolutely knows how to share the love!!

Spitzer Subaru's Great Support of Bob Perks Fund

Spitzer Subaru of DuBois has been a crucial lifeline for the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund (BPF) and Clearfield County cancer patients for many years. Since the beginning of our partnership in 2013, Spitzer Subaru (formerly Johnson Subaru) has donated nearly $98,000 to BPF to help individuals in Clearfield County who are undergoing cancer treatments and struggling to pay their bills. These folks are our friends, neighbors, and family members and often need help paying the electric bill or gas money to get to their next appointment. We at Bob Perks Fund are so, so thankful for Spitzer Subaru's amazing support!

Spitzer Subaru loves the Elk County Humane Society

The Elk County Humane Society was so honored to be partnered with Spitzer Subaru for the “Subaru Loves Pets” event again this year. I am delighted to report that we succeeded the goal and adopted 31 animals from our shelter during the month of October 2022. Plus, we finalized 8 more adoptions from fosters who went out during the month of October on November 9th 2022 after our spay and neuter clinic. Our policy is that all dogs and cats must be altered at the time of adoption, but we can send them out on foster to a home before that time. With our foster program a puppy or kitten has the opportunity to be in a home spending precious bonding time with the family rather than being in a kennel in the shelter. In addition, we had 7 more fosters go out during the month of October. A foster that I would love to mention came from the October 22nd event that was held at the Spitzer Subaru Dealership. Curtis Smith and Jeannie Dunworth did an incredible job of putting together a day’s worth of activities for their staff, customers and our shelter volunteers with some of our fur babies to enjoy. I was so impressed on how many of the Spitzer Subaru staff was on hand volunteering their time to support the event. One of the employees even had his wife along with him, Brandon and Erika Roat. I am overjoyed to report that by the end of the event they had filled out an application for the two kittens – Heaven and Nevaeh – that we had there. Since we do not do on the spot adoptions or fosters, Brandon and Erika came to our shelter the next day to pick the two babies up to take home on foster. Since they are too young yet to be spayed, they still remain on foster but will be adopted before Christmas. I know that I have mentioned this before but, a few years back when my sister and I each purchased a new Subaru, I knew we were getting a wonderful and reliable vehicle. Never did I imagine that we would also be gaining a remarkable partnership with a company that truly gives back to the community. On behalf of the Elk County Humane Society I want to thank Spitzer Subaru for this wonderful opportunity that they provided for us. Our fur babies send you tail wags and kisses.

Spitzer Subaru Share the Love Raffle - Bob Perks Fund

The Bob Perks Fund was honored to be selected as a recipient of Spitzer Subaru's Share the Love campaign again this year. Spitzer Subaru was also generous enough to organize a Basket Raffle event on December 3 to benefit the Bob Perks Fund. It was a truly incredible event with the chance to win great prizes and enjoy some delicious refreshments. Thank you to the team at Spitzer Subaru for your incredible commitment to our cancer community!

Spitzer Subaru Loves Earth

Spitzer Subaru of DuBois has been quite busy this month celebrating Subaru loves Earth. First sharing the Terracycle recycling efforts with the community as well as in house. April 16 th Spitzer Subaru joined "Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful" and adopted a nearby road. Cleaning trash and large debris off the road side and beyond. One thing for sure the weather was not enough to dampen the spirits of this crew. Finally to help sustain the Earth and supporting the Arbor Day Foundation. Free Trees!! 100 free trees given out to any one that will plant them. These trees will hopefully grow for decades to come, making this Earth just a little bit better for all of us.

"Subaru Loves Pets - Elk County Humane Society"

The Elk County Humane Society was so honored to be partnered with Spitzer Subaru for the “Subaru Loves Pets” Event this year. The program is, Subaru will donate $100 per animal that we adopt out during the month of October, up to $3100.00. I am ecstatic to report that we succeeded that goal and actually adopted 32 animals from our shelter during the month of October 2021! Spitzer Subaru hosted an Adoption Event at their dealership on Saturday October 16. We were invited to bring some of our shelter animals to come and spend the day, to meet the staff and supporters. Curtis Smith and Jeannie Dunworth went above and beyond to make the day special for us. They put together door prizes and provided snacks and beverages for all to enjoy. I, of course always on the job of fundraiser for our shelter, worked with Jeannie and came up with some additional items to raffle off. It was so exciting every time someone came in to drop off donations. Aside from filling up an Outback with supplies, we also collected $697 in monetary donations. Which totally exceeded my expectations of the day! We took two of our kittens, Jason and Pamela, and two of our dogs, Kane and Tina from the shelter to the event. They were all so good and entertained everyone. The kittens were always being cuddled by someone and the dogs were showing their best behavior whenever someone came to visit them. I am happy to report that all four of these animals are now living in their forever homes! A few years back when my sister and I each purchased a new Subaru, I knew we were getting a wonderful and reliable vehicle. Never did I imagine that we would also be gaining a remarkable partnership with a company that truly gives back to the community. On behalf of the Elk County Humane Society I want to thank Spitzer Subaru for this wonderful opportunity that they provided for us. Our fur babies send you tail wags and kisses!

2020 Subaru Loves Pets

A few years ago, when my sister and I both went to the Subaru dealership in DuBois Pennsylvania to each buy a new vehicle, little did we realize then that not only did we each gain an incredible and reliable car, but we formed a partnership with a company that has the same passion for animals that we have. When I mentioned that I am the fundraising chairperson for the Elk County Humane Society, the associates assured me that we would partner in future to do something to benefit our shelter. Last year under Johnson Subaru, the dealership did a donation drive for us and brought in huge boxes full of food, toys and supplies. So, this year when I got the phone call from Curtis Smith of Spitzer Subaru to inform me of the change of hands of the business, I was thrilled when he assured me that he already had my contact information for the shelter. Never did I imagine that the program would be as remarkable as this year’s October “Subaru Loves Pets “event. For the month of October for every dog and cat that was adopted from our shelter, Subaru offered to donate $100 to our organization. We promoted this grand gesture and the public was all too willing to come and find their new fur babies. We adopted 31 animals in the 31 days! A total of 12 cats and 19 dogs got a new home and the shelter will receive funds to help care for future animals that come in our doors. Each adoption is always a heartwarming experience, but one in particular during October was a sweet elderly lady who saw a picture of a hound on the Elk County Humane Society’s face book page and she came to meet her. Karen, who is 82 years young came to our shelter from Grampian to meet our Jemma, an 8-year-old Treeing Walker Coonhound mix. Jemma came into our shelter by way of the State Dog Warden of Elk County. On October 2nd she was found running loose by herself. On intake, she showed signs of poor care and neglect. She was not spayed, not microchipped, no license, skinny, dirty ears, bad teeth, extremely long nails and very hungry. Yet, she had such a sweet disposition. Her picture was put out on social media and she was recognized by someone and her “owner” was contacted. When asked if he was going to claim her, he declined and surrendered her to our shelter. It seems that all of Jemma’s life she lived outside in a cage and was strictly a hunting dog – specifically coyotes. She apparently is getting “too old” to hunt so her “owner” had no more use for her. So, we gladly took her in. Being inside was a whole new experience for Jemma. She was so shy around the staff, basically just sat and waited for commands. She had no idea what a toy was nor a soft bed. She showed no signs of aggression but more like a lost soul looking for comforting. After her quarantine period, she passed all her evaluations and was sent to be spayed. On October 16th she was posted as available for adoption. On Friday October 23rd, divine intervention brought two souls together who needed each other. Karen had lost her Treeing Walker hound 5 years ago and immediately fell in love with Jemma when she saw her picture. Jemma immediately took to Karen the moment she saw her at the shelter. She crawled right up on the couch next to Karen in our meet and greet room. She settled in next to her with her head on Karen’s lap. Needless to say, just a few days later on October 26th, Jemma was finally living inside her new home. I have been involved with our shelter for almost 15 years and it is because of charitable individuals and Companies like Subaru who are so generous to us that we can continue to bring people and fur babies together. On behalf of the Elk County Humane Society I want to thank Spitzer Subaru for this wonderful opportunity that they provided for us. Our fur babies send you tail wags and kisses.

The Bob Perks Cancer Fund Loves Share The Love

Six years ago, the Bob Perks Cancer Assistance Fund (BPF) was chosen as a recipient of the Subaru Share the Love campaign. Since that first year, more than $74,700 has been raised and allocated to Clearfield County cancer patients. The BPF is extremely grateful to our Strategic Partner Spitzer Subaru. As the BPF development coordinator, I am proud to work with the tremendous staff at Spitzer Subaru to co-host the Holiday Open House. The Holiday Open House provides an opportunity to promote Share the Love and the BPF mission to help ease the financial burden of cancer patients who are struggling to pay basic living expenses such as rent, utilities and groceries Because of the pandemic two major fundraisers were cancelled. The monies raised during the Share the Love campaign helped meet the need so the BPF did not skip a beat in providing funding to Clearfield County cancer patients so they may focus on treatment and recovery. On a personal note, my dear friend lost his flooring business amid the pandemic. While he was struggling to make ends meet, he was diagnosed with cancer. My friend donated numerous hours to raise funds for local charities and now he needed help. I told him the BPF maybe able to help and they did. Now he can focus on his treatment and recovery with less worry. Hats off to Spitzer Subaru for their continued support of their neighbors who are battling cancer. You do make the future brighter.
