Tail Wagging Joy for Homebound Seniors - Megan O

Caregiver Canines is proud to once again be the recipient of the Subaru Love Promise Award from Pine Belt Subaru in Lakewood. Their generous donation has allowed us to make sure our volunteers are well protected during the pandemic with PPE. This has allowed our visits to continue to bring joy to the seniors in our community, request for pet therapy visiting among the homebound seniors in our community has more than double this year. The pandemic is still affecting our lonely and vulnerable seniors and these visits are not only a fun social visit but studies have shown that weekly visits from a therapy dog can vastly improve mood and overall health. For people that no longer have a pet but wish to, these visits are perfect and aid in combating feelings of isolation and loneliness. Our trusted canine companions visit once a week for an hour and dispense their love, friendship, and affection instantaneously. Through the support we receive from the Pine Belt Subaru Share the Love event we are able to recruit and train more therapy dogs to serve our community to meet the growing need. We appreciate the hard work and dedication that Subaru and the Pine Belt family puts into this event. We look forward to another great year of Sharing the Love!

Point Pleasant Beach Clean-Up - Theresa S

We are so grateful to Pine Belt Subaru and their amazing staff who supported our hometown charity, Ocean of Love, Inc. in our most recent fundraising event! Their Love Promise Champion, Alexis Meroney, reached out in early April with plans to put together a local Beach Clean-Up that would directly support our mission to help families battling childhood cancer through monetary donations! The event made such a positive impact on our environment and brought the community together to help protect the endangered turtle eggs, remove plastics and garbage from our beaches, and support local families in need. With over 100 people coming out to support this Pine Belt Subaru Love Promise Event, we were able to remove 3 large garbage bags full of trash and 2 bags full of recyclables while raising $2,000 for our charity! It was so wonderful to see the support from not only a local car dealership but also members of Subaru of America, who took time out of their busy schedule to come out and support this amazing cause! They truly live up to their motto of being “More Than A Car Company!” With the help of these donations, we were able to continue financially supporting families battling childhood cancer by covering things like monthly bills, groceries, and unforeseen expenses! Ocean of Love, Inc. is so grateful for their efforts and we are looking forward to future partnerships with Pine Belt Subaru! From our family to yours, Thank you!

Safe Kids Ocean/Monmouth, - Denice G

The Pine Belt Subaru Share the Love program has made a positive impact on child passenger safety in Ocean County. Throughout 2020, Safe Kids Ocean/Monmouth, which is led by Monmouth Medical Center Southern Campus (MMCSC), continued to work to prevent and reduce childhood injury through education and by providing safety equipment to families in need. Our team of nurses and health educators collaborated with the Ocean County Health Department Women, Infant and Children (WIC) Office, which enabled the team to identify families with a demonstrated financial and material need for a car seat(s). Once a needs assessment was given, determine the appropriate size(s)seat, families were directed to an Ocean County Child Passenger Safety Seat Program. There a Certified CPS technician provided parents and caregivers with a one-on-one tutorial demonstration of the proper installation and instructional use of their specific child safety seat(s) ensuring that the latest car seat guidelines of the American Academy of Pediatrics and the NHTSA were being followed.

Caregiver Canines Still Bringing Joy to Seniors - Danielle M

Caregiver Canines®, visiting therapy dog program, and Pine Belt Subaru of Lakewood have been sharing the love even amidst the current pandemic. As the recipients of the 2019 Share The Love event we were able to provide over 2000 hours of therapy dog visits to our community of homebound senior citizens in Ocean and Monmouth Counties. With the money awarded we were able to recruit and train even more therapy dog teams now done completely virtually, provide all our volunteers with insurance to keep their dogs safe when they are out volunteering in the community and equip all volunteers with PPE. Caregiver Canines® is honored to have been chosen again as a partner of Subaru. Our clients have been even more isolated due to Covid-19 public health crisis. Weekly therapy dog visits are often the highlight of their very lonely days. Pine Belt Subaru and the Subaru brand understand the important role that dogs play in the everyday lives of people all over the world and we are proud to be a partner in the fight to end loneliness during these uncertain times by Sharing The Love in the year ahead.

Pick Your Paw Animal Rescue/Pine Belt Subaru - Tammy B

Our Love Promise Story Our story started at an annual pet adoption event at Pine Belt Subaru in Lakewood. An employee volunteered to be a foster for one of our dogs. Pine Belt Subaru allowed this dog to come to work with foster mom as part of our partnership. The dog was part of the PB Subaru family and regularly greeted and interacted with customers and employees. After a successful adoption, the employee continued to foster other dogs who ultimately were adopted. All dogs were adopted by either a Pine Belt employee or customer. All dogs also rode to work every day in a Subaru! Pine Belt Subaru was extremely instrumental in finding homes for four of our dogs by allowing these dogs to be on site and visible. Our pets received the ultimate benefit from this partnership as our agency received exposure by our pets being visible to the Subaru community. This also allowed more people to learn about us and visit our website to inquire about other animals available for adoption. Our first dog to be fostered by PB Subaru did not respond to her name, so foster mom named her “Subi”, in honor of Subaru, which she immediately responded to. This dog was indeed a true Subaru fan and lover! We continue to receive updates on all the adopted dogs, as they regularly visit Subaru when their parents come for service/parts/sale. Former foster mom lets us know she saw them and sends new pictures and updates on their lives. Attached are pictures of all the dogs hanging out in the booth at work at Subaru

The staff also expressed how much they love being able to hand a patient having a rough day a blanket and a craft kit they can use for therapeutic art as well.
