Love Promise Stories from Dan Perkins Subaru

Adopt a Corgi - Avrom S

A few months ago, one of our long time customers lost their beloved Corgi of many years. As a senior couple they were hoping to adopt a more mature dog. With the knowledge that Dan Perkins Subaru partners with the Connecticut Humane Society they reached out to see if we could help. Luckily The Connecticut Humane society put us in contact with a group that specializes in Corgi adoptions. Soon afterwards, our customers were able to adopt a beautiful seven year old Corgi that they named Tippy. It was such a pleasure to see the joy on their faces when when they brought Tippy in to visit. Subaru Loves Pets gave us the opportunity to partner with a local animal shelter and because of this, an awesome adoption and a forever family came to fruition for Tippy.

Leah's Journey - Kathryn S

Leah waited 10 months to find a home! With a heart murmur at the center of her medical issues, Leah had the support of the CHS medical staff to help her work through some of her troubles before she was even able to go up for adoption. Thanks to the wonderful donors of this community, Leah was on the right pat h and after 10 months was placed into a home that was willing to put in extra work to keep her healthy. Along her journey, the volunteer foster program at CHS allowed her to be in a home environment between her medical appointments: there were so many dedicated people cheering her on! It can be hard to find the right match when a pet has a medical issue, but for Leah and so many other pets at CHS this year, it was worth the wait! She found a new mom who made her a part of the family just in time for the holidays. Thanks to Dan Perkins Subaru, more pets like Leah have the chance for bright futures. During the Subaru Love Pets campaign, Dan Perkins donated $100 for every dog and cat adoption, so other pets would have the same love, support, and success that Leah did here at the Connecticut Humane Society.

Once again Dan Perkins Subaru and our awesome team have initiated our annual food drive. This year we are donating to The Milford Food Bank and the Beth El Center. Both these charities have for many years supported those in need in our community and Dan Perkins Subaru is proud to be able to contribute. Each year we have been able to increase our giving which brings our staff and customers together to benefit these great causes. Charity and giving is not just over Thanksgiving and the holidays, but is ongoing which means that our gifts and the organizations that are so integral to our community must be supported throughout the year.


Basement Boy - Nicole F

BARC-CT rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes hundreds of dogs per year, primarily pit bulls and all CT dogs. We receive approximately 3-5 surrender emails a week. One email that was received this year was a woman telling us about a dog that was left caged in basement for at least six months. We got some volunteers and sprang into action and headed to Bridgeport. We were unsure what we would be faced with once we got there, as this dog hadn't been appropriately socialized and also hadn't seen the light of day in some time. Once we arrived, we were greeted with a nervous but happy big head that we knew immediately would be okay. Once we got him out of the crate and onto a leash, we began to make our way up stairs with him, quickly realizing that he barely even knew how to walk up the stairs. He was so happy to see the sunlight and was immediately transported to our vet. Once he was checked out, vetted and cleared by the vet, he made his way to his foster home and never left! They immediately fell in love with this sweet boy who now lives with three other fur siblings, and his new family who love him so very much! Thanks for the support, Subaru!


Dan Perkins Subaru Garden - Avrom S

This Spring our team at Dan Perkins Subaru worked hard to plant a beautiful vegetable garden at our retail facility. They cleared an area and planted heirloom and cherry tomatoes, melons, peppers, eggplant, squash, zucchini and chili peppers. We also have peach trees and plum trees. All this for the benefit of our staff and customers. Everyone is welcome to harvest the bounty. What a bounty it has been. Throughout the summer and through fall the garden has been incredible. The tomatoes and eggplant have been a huge hit as well as some unexpectedly super hot chili peppers. The feed back from our customers has been great, too. Comments like, "I fried up some of the long eggplant and they were delicious" as well as "what a treat to add those tomatoes to my salad for lunch." It took some hard work by our staff, but the rewards were well worth it.

Adopt a classroom - Avrom S

Over the years, Dan Perkins Subaru has sponsored and adopted classrooms from our local schools. We have donated books to the libraries in Bridgeport, Ct, Milford, Ct and Ansonia, Ct. In addition to books these schools have also been able to utilize monetary donations to benefit their students. Subaru of America and the Subaru Loves learning initiative were instrumental in making this program such a success. The best part for us as a Subaru retailer is not only the fact that we can help these schools, but the awesome notes we received with personal signatures from the kids.

Connecticut beach clean up - AVROM S

September 18th 2022. Gulf Beach Milford, Ct. What an awesome event and thanks to all the volunteers who gave their Sunday morning to clean up one of the most popular beaches in our community. Save the Sound was on hand to coordinate the event with absolute precision. At first glance, the beach looked clean with very little debris. Our volunteers scoured the beach for about two hours and collected about 70 pounds of garbage including an amazing over 2500 cigarette butts. Lots of plastic straws, small pieces of plastic and plastic bottle caps also made up the bulk of the items collected and even though these items are small, they have a huge impact to the health of our shoreline and our marine animals. We had families, friends and staff come out to help which made the event a lot of fun. Thankfully, other than a lot of wind the weather was perfect. We are looking forward to next year. Meanwhile enjoy our natural resources by cleaning up. Leave with only photographs and leave behind only footprints. DAN PERKINS SUBARU

Connecticut Humane Society - Avrom S

Dan Perkins Subaru is proud to have sponsored the adoption of many pets in need of great homes for many years through the Connecticut Humane Society . This year is no different as we prepare for Subaru Loves Pets. In fact the support and hard work never stops. The Humane Society is always looking for new homes for animals. Jojo’s “Mewsic” Saved Her Life Jojo story page She wasn’t easy to spot. And she didn’t realize her tiny “mews” would catch the attention of anything other than the mom she was looking for. Instead she caught the attention of the two-legged, human variety. Jojo, a little black kitten, was stuck in a storm drain. She had tried and tried to get out, but it just wasn’t possible. When a local animal control officer responded, Jojo really hoped her scary, miniature hiss was enough to frighten him off until she could find her mom to help. But alas, the human had caught her! With no mom in sight, Jojo was headed to a shelter. And it’s a good thing, too! Jojo was too tiny to be on her own. The animal control officer turned to the Connecticut Humane Society for help. She was underweight suffering from an upper respiratory infection, and struggling with an upset stomach—imagine all of that, on top of being a shy and scared little kitten! The staff veterinary team treated her infection and prescribed her a regimen to grow big and strong—and off to a foster home she went. With time and patience, Jojo’s foster mom was able to give her the love and snuggles she deserved. Her warning hisses soon gave way to loud, happy purrs and, before long, she found her new family. When a pet is found outside, injured or lost, it’s hard to know what kind of care they’ll need. With complications of soaring summer heat, it makes a pet’s plight all the more urgent. Thanks to your kindness, pets like Jojo can rest easy, knowing a fresh start is ahead because people like you never give up on them! We encourage all to support this great organization. One of the ways we can do this year round is by donating food and pet supplies at Dan Perkins Subaru, 1 Boston Post rd, Milford, Ct
