Ocean Subaru Family - Abby S

After a purchase you may hear our Sales Associates say " Welcome to the Ocean Subaru Family". Miss Ana and her family are a perfect example of a Subaru Family! Miss Ana and her husband Rigoberto went on their first date back on May 5th of 2017. Love at first Subaru considering her husband drove a 2016 WRX. As their love grew, so did their family, they adopted a pup and name him SUBI. Soon after, their son was born. They decided to purchase a family vehicle that would also be great on gas and comfortable for family road trips. Being Subaru family already, the Subaru Ascent was just the right fit. Going around L.A. County Subaru retailers, they finally found the Ascent with us. May 5th 2022, on their first date anniversary, they purchased the Ascent they have been searching for. Thank you Ana for sharing your story with us and thank you for being a part of our Ocean Subaru Family!

Subaru Loves Pets – [PetEmber Animal Rescue] - Angel H

Theresa is a 10 years old Chihuahua rescue with a pretty interesting story and a long battle that she had to fight until she finally found her forever home at the Subaru national make a dog’s day event that took place on October 22, 2021. Theresa was rescued by PetEmber Animal Rescue from the county of San Bernardino. She was dumped by someone on Cajon Boulevard and she was left under danger as she is a partially blind dog. While a volunteer was driving through Cajon Boulevard and a junction with another street, Theresa was stuck in the middle of the road in front of a stoplight in the junction. She was bleeding and she could not move. She seemed to be extremely scared. Our volunteer stopped his car and pointed to other cars on the road to stop until he managed to catch her with a towel around. Theresa tried to bite our volunteer as she was in a lot of pain, bleeding, and extremely scared. When our volunteer put her in his car, she tried to hide herself under one of the car seats and when our volunteer went back home, he saw the blood under the seat and it took him a while until he could grab her again and put her in a crate. Immediately, the volunteer informed the leads of PetEmber about the situation and another volunteer was assigned to come and take her to a veterinarian in order to check the reasons why she is bleeding. Fortunately, the reasons for bleeding were found to be various cuts around her neck without any fractures. Immediately, she was operated, stitched, and saved. The veterinarian has mentioned that Theresa is partially blind, her back legs were so weak, and she needs training in order to gain power in her back legs again. During her stay at PetEmber, all the health issues were addressed and she was healed from all the issues she had except the blindness that she had when she was rescued. She became up to date on all her vaccines and she became ready for a forever home. When Theresa was rescued, she preferred to stay alone at her foster’s house as she was scared of other dogs. Theresa had some trust issues but little by little, she started to open up and she started to allow people to touch her and hold her. After staying at the rescue for more than a year and a lot of trials to get her adopted, it was extremely hard for her to find a home as she was old and blind. On October 22, 2021, Theresa was given a golden opportunity by the Ocean Subaru of Fullerton with more exposure to be seen aided by the waived adoption fees at the Subaru national make a dog’s day event. These factors have helped her get adopted to a wonderful family. The family who adopted her commented “After adopting Theresa, our family is now complete. We have learned to appreciate the little help someone can give to an animal in need. We are thankful to everyone who helped rescue Theresa and to the Ocean Subaru of Fullerton who made it possible for us to adopt Theresa through their well-organized event”. On behalf of PetEmber Staff, thank you so much for helping Theresa get adopted along with helping other 21 animals find their forever home at your Ocean Subaru of Fullerton event.

WCOF supports HIS OC Homeshare Program - Joanie R

The Woman’s Club of Fullerton, along with the partnership from Ocean Subaru of Fullerton, supported HIS (Homeless Intervention Services) OC for their Homeshare Program, which helps students overcome homelessness and achieve independence. They provide care by meeting the unique needs of the homeless and impoverished individuals, students, and families. HomeShare OC screens and matches eligible college students and senior homeowners. The students attend Cal State Fullerton and Fullerton College, and are people who have lost housing and are lacking funds. Seniors living in North Orange County will benefit from help in the home, financial stability, and companionship. This brings together an older homeowner who will lives in the comfort of their home with a compatible college student who would lend a hand in return for affordable rent. This program helps college students find affordable housing in our community while assisting seniors to stay in their own homes, which benefits both the students and the seniors. Both populations have been underserved and have trouble with food security and affordable housing. HIS-OC is addressing this issue by creating the next generation of roommates. The goal for 2021 is to match 12 students with 12 seniors. Carrie Buck, Executive Director of HIS OC wrote: “Thank you so much for your generous donation. You are truly making a difference in the lives of homeless men, women, and children in Orange County. Your commitment to fighting against homelessness, hunger, addiction, and injustice inspires me, and I marvel at the selflessness and sacrificial giving that I see every single day in the people who make what we do possible. Because of your generosity, we were able to move children and young adults off the streets and into a warm, safe bed. When homeless families and individuals come to Homeless Intervention Services of Orange County, they get more than hot meals and a place to sleep. They also receive compassion, respect, and hope for a second chance. ”Thank you, Ocean Subaru, for partnering with the Woman’s Club of Fullerton to give back to this wonderful organization.
