Pets

Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.

A partner since 2008, Subaru has donated over $28 million to the ASPCA and through Subaru Loves Pets has helped support the rescue, transport, adoption and well-being of over 230,000 animals across the country. 

Environment

Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.

Since 2018, Subaru has partnered with TerraCycle.  Participating Subaru retailers collect hard-to-recycle trash that was headed to local landfills. We collect approximately 2 tons of this hard-to-recycle trash monthly, which will be converted to furnishings and other usable items and donated locally.

Education

It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.

Since 2015 Subaru, in partnership with the American Association for the Advancement Science, donated over 277,600 award-winning science books.  In addition, through our partnerships with Staples and Adoptaclassroom.org we supported teachers and students with donations of S400,000 in gift cards and school supplies. 

Community

In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.

In 2020, Subaru and its retailers made a donation to Feeding America to provide 50 million meals to help feed people in need during the COVID-19 crisis,* making meals available at 199 local food banks across the country.
*$1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. 

Health

We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.

Since 2016, Subaru and its retailers have partnered with the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) to donate over 167,000 blankets and 21,500 arts & crafts kits and reached nearly 150,000 patients in more than 780 hospitals nationwide. 

How is Ourisman Subaru Waldorf dedicated locally to the Love Promise?

Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well.

Love Promise Stories from Ourisman Subaru Waldorf

Subaru and Ourisman Subaru Waldorf believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

Subaru Loves the Earth Story  –  Laura T

A few months ago we had the pleasure to work with a wonderful customer and conservationist named Laura. We were happy to assist in getting her new Subaru Outback. Laura spends her time and effort saving and protecting all of the wonderful bird and animal species native to southern Maryland. She also uses her Outback to travel the area educating children about the local wildlife, even giving them the chance to experience them up close. On one of her recent outings, she stopped by the dealership with a wildlife friend for us to meet. She brought a local Owl rescue in her care that she uses when teaching the children. Only at Subaru would one get to experience such a beautiful animal up close. We are always happy to provide our local environmental soldiers with the most reliable vehicles to undertake the job of saving our planet. Thanks to her Subaru Outback Laura can safely and comfortably transport the animals for her work; and thanks to her, we were able to experience the amazing wildlife of our local area.


Ourisman Subaru Loves Pets  –  Lloyd K

So I have been involved with Subaru the majority of my life it feels like being the only car brand my family has ever owned. Ourisman Subaru in Waldorf MD particularly has been my home for the past 4 years now. I could not imagine working or doing business any other place. Ourisman Subaru is involved with a local animal shelter (Last Chance Animal Shelter in Waldorf) and every year during the Subaru Loves Pets month, they stop by with a few potential pets for adoption. My wife and I already have two yorkies but were planning on getting another rescue. Last Chance came with one of the cutest black labs we had ever seen and my wife knew right away that he was the one. Ourisman Subaru Waldorf was gracious enough to help with the adoption fees and without Ourisman and Subaru I am sure we would not of found the new addition to our home.

On Wednesday, July 24th, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Maryland Chapter and Ourisman Subaru Waldorf had the pleasure of delivering 80 blankets to the Chesapeake Potomac Regional Cancer Center as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of Ourisman Subaru of Waldorf.

Many thanks to everyone at Amanda Sisk at Ourisman Subaru and the Chesapeake Potomac Regional Cancer Center, not only for a memorable day, but for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.


Last Chance Animal Rescue Adoption & Donations Day  –  AMANDA S

Through the generosity of our customers and staff, Ourisman Subaru was able to collect and donate blankets, canned and dry food, and toys to the Last Chance Animal Rescue, our Hometown Charity. Applications for fostering and adoptions were collected, and we hope some of these playful pups find them forever home! The puppies had a lovely day running around the showroom and brought smiles to staff and customers alike!
