Subaru - Helping Planned Pethood Save Lives! - Amber B

Planned Pethood, Inc has long enjoyed a mutually supportive relationship with Yark Subaru. Because of this, we're able to fulfill our mission to help the homeless cats and dogs of NW Ohio. We're also able to help the pet owners who continue to struggle due to the events of 2020-21 and, for some, just life. A perfect example is that of a man who recently and suddenly became homeless. He found assisted living for himself, but unfortunately his beloved senior husky, Ira, couldn't join him. He looked at his options but simply couldn't afford to either board him or to even have him humanely euthanized. In desperation, he arranged for a farmer to shoot Ira.We got word and immediately offered our shelter and support. What we found was a wonderful dog, a dog who still enjoys long walks, car rides and just being with his human.Immediate interest to adopt was shown, and Ira is now living his best life with his new mom, dad, sister and 3 canine siblings. Or how about is Stella, a beautiful pit mix who was ready to give birth on a shelter floor. We got the alert and turned to our volunteers.One of our incredible fosters stepped up, and within days, Stella was snuggled on a comfy blanket ready to deliver 7 stunning babies.When ready, all of the puppies were immediately adopted. And Stella? She was spayed and went to live with one of our previous adopters. She's enjoying life with with her new family that includes 6 human siblings! Her new 4 legged sister Bella (who also came to us pregnant) and she are best buds. We like to think that they know that they're two of the fortunate ones. Thank you Yark Subaru for allowing us to raise our hands to these and many more who so desperately need us. We want more to be a part of the fortunate ones.

Care For The Most Vulnerable In Our Community - Nikki M

The donation of nearly 100 thermal, water resistant blankets from Yark Subaru will have a lasting impact on Cherry Street Mission Ministries and individuals experiencing homelessness. We can rest assured that should an emergency occur, like the usual cold weather we can expect in Northwest Ohio, we can respond to it. Strategic partnerships toward holistic health is one of the many ways Cherry Street and Yark Subaru are creating an impact on the community. Working together we can address the needs of those who are hungry and together we can start #FeedingFutures.

Supporting Outdoor Experiences for All! - Ally E

Yark Subaru is a truly incredible community partner! Thanks to Yark Subaru’s support, Metroparks Toledo was able to build the incredible Cannaley Treehouse Village, which opened to the public this year. The Treehouse Village is an entirely unique outdoor experience that includes overnight and daytime experiences within a six-person, a four-person and two two-person treehouses plus three tent platforms. The Village provides a close, safe and unique experience in nature, which has become even more important during these times. But that’s not all! In addition to helping fund the treehouse construction, Yark Subaru has provided support for our summer campers to experience the Village each year and for outdoor activities, like the Outdoor Expo. Yark Subaru is an incredible partner in helping us engage our community with high-quality outdoor experiences. We are grateful!

Yark Subaru helps PPI Save Lives - Doy D

There are two things Planned Pethood, Inc knows for sure. First, in a year of unprecedented hardship and struggle, the vast needs of homeless cats and dogs are amplified. Second, we can always count on the help and support of Yark Subaru. Period. When the phone call came from Dave Boehm telling us that we had been selected to benefit from the October Yark Loves Pets event, we were beyond thrilled, honored and THANKFUL! This kind of support energizes us. It confirms that we're doing the right thing, that our mission is important. And that we're being heard. The help of Yark Subaru allows us to bring in a dog like Ziva (pictured), a puppy who was paralyzed in her back legs due to an injury and would need the help of our experts. The help of Yark Subaru allows us to bring in pregnant dogs and cats that will require extensive care and vetting. The help of Yark Subaru allows us the luxury of being able to provide proper training to dogs with behavior issues. We can never and will never take this help and support for granted. We will continue to strive to be the best partner we can possibly be.

Always Above and Beyond for Animals x 2 - Doy D

Year after year, Yark Subaru has shown the love when it comes to supporting Planned Pethood in its mission. 2019 was a big year for PPI, and Yark Subaru was by our side every step of the way. Our annual Paw Hoorah was the best ever (seriously....what a party!), much in part because of the corporate support we receive. On top of that list sits the name of Yark Subaru. Their donation is generous and their participation enthusiastic. They don't just send a check. They attend, they enjoy and they spend! 2019 offered a second opportunity to help us out. This year marked 40 years that Planned Pethood has been advocating spay and neuter as well as finding forever homes for dogs and cats. Throwing a party for the community was a no-brainer....we had to! But, again, we needed help. Without a hesitation, Yark was 100% yes. AGAIN, always there for us. The best! Thank you!

Since 2001, the mission at Racing for Recovery has been to prevent all forms of substance abuse by promoting a lifestyle of fitness and health for all those affected by addiction. The support of Yark Subaru has allowed us to continue to make that mission a reality for so many people! Through the generosity of Yark Subaru we have been able to purchase additional kayaks to take people on healthy fun excursions, as well as add additional fitness equipment to our gym. Every dollar from donations to Racing for Recovery goes right back to the amazing people that enter our doors to help them realize that “With Sobriety, Anything is Possible”! Thank you Yark Subaru!
