Ziggy! - Joanne W

Ziggy is a 12 yr old long haired chihuahua that we rescued from Boston Animal Control. He was found stray and paralyzed. We were able to do an MRI and found that he had no structural reason for his paralysis so he is now getting Physical Therapy and has a wheelchair to get around in. We could not cover those sorts of expenses for a dog without the help of Subaru of Wakefield. They are donating $3100 ($100 for each of our first 31 adoptions during the month of October 2021)! We are so very grateful. And guess what? Ziggy's family owns a Subaru Ascent! Lucky Ziggy!

Samy the K9 Police Dog - Samy S

Sal Barbagallo and Subaru of Wakefield donated K9 Samy, an English Labrador. Samy will serve the community in a unique capacity: as a comfort dog. Her specialized training will allow her to help reduce anxiety in adults and children involved in domestic violence situations, mental health crises, and other traumatic events. Officer Kelley Tobyne, a School Resource Officer, was selected to be Samy’s handler. Tobyne’s established connection to Wakefield students provides the opportunity for them to have access to the dog when the need arises. Samy is named in honor of Wakefield’s Becca Sampson, a friend of the department, who passed away from leukemia in 2018 at age 13.

Bringing Hope & Joy to Wish Children - Heather D

As the 2020 Subaru Share the Love Event is underway, we are honored to be selected as the Hometown Charity for the campaign by Subaru of Wakefield for a fourth year. Over the past three years, the dealership and its customers have contributed an incredible $145,000 through the campaign to help children with critical illnesses experience the life-changing joy of a wish fulfilled. We have been hard at work granting wishes for playsets, room redecorations, puppies, online shopping sprees, hot tubs, computers, and more, and we celebrate the compassionate support of the entire Subaru of Wakefield team and its customers in helping to make this possible. Together, we are bringing much-needed joy and hope to wish children and their families!

Subaru of Wakefield--helping our dogs - Joanne W

Subaru of Wakefield partnered with Forever Home Rescue New England to help support adoptions in October 2020. With the help of Subaru we were able to adopt out 57 dogs, two of whom had major leg injuries, one found stray and one hit by car. Both dogs required leg amputations, which are expensive. Photos attached. They were both adopted to very happy adoptive families this month. Thank you, Subaru of Wakefield!

Sharing the Love to Help Grant Wishes - Heather D

We are so grateful for the tremendous giving spirit of Subaru of Wakefield and its customers through the 2019 Subaru Share the Love Event! As Subaru of Wakefield's "Hometown Charity of Choice" for the promotion, Make-A-Wish Massachusetts and Rhode Island received $46,236 to help grant the wishes of five children with critical illnesses. The promotion also included a toy drive, and wish families were invited to the dealership for fun activities and to share their wish stories. We extend our thanks to every Subaru of Wakefield team member for their great partnership in support of our mission and look forward to gathering as soon as it is safe to do so to celebrate this remarkable generosity!
