Raina's Transformation - Kathryn S

The most well behaved dogs sometimes come from a ruff start. Raina was a perfect example. After she arrived at CHS from a Texas transport, medical staff found a wound of unknown origin on Raina. With state laws, that meant she had to undergo a six-month quarantine, just in case the injury was caused by a rabid animal. This meant she wouldn't be able to find her furever home for a long time. For a smart pup like her, she would need a lot of support to keep her well—mind and body—during her extended shelter stay. Even a short stay in a shelter can be stressful for a pet, so CHS’ behavior team got to work giving Raina all the enrichment and adventures possible, to keep her entertained. By the time Raina's quarantine was over, she'd gotten so much attention and training, that she was a completely different dog! A wonderfully active couple adopted Raina, and she is now in a home full of love and fun, having the best time of her life. None of Raina's journey from transport to training would have been possible without the support of local community members, just like Quality Subaru of Wallingford! From now until January 3rd, 2023, Quality Subaru is donating up to $300 to CHS per new car purchased or leased as a part of the Subaru Share the Love Event, so pets just like Raina can get the love, support, and success from CHS that she did. Thank you Quality Subaru for caring about the pets!

Couch Surfer to Couch Potato - Kathryn S

After spending 381 days in CHS’ care without a family to call his very own, one could totally understand if Haze’s spirits were dampened. Was it his size? There was a lot to him… his head alone was gigantic. That he was middle-aged? The troublesome knees and hips? His allergies? 381 days is a long time to wait for your next chapter in life, but on day 381, a family came to meet Haze, and it was love at first sniff. Haze turned from couch surfer from all the wonderful foster homes that helped him, to a couch potato with his new family. Thanks to Secor Subaru, more pets like Haze get all the time they need. During the Subaru Love Pets campaign, Reynolds donated $100 for every dog and cat adoption, so other pets would have the same love, support, and success that Haze did here at the Connecticut Humane Society. On top of that, Secor purchased Bark Boxes and Chewbarus for newly adopted dogs to go home with a few goodies to get them started in their new lives, and they even hosted a pet food drive to make sure that the pets stay happy and healthy. Thank you so much Secor Subaru!

Banksy's 300+ Day Stay - Kathryn S

How could cute little Banksy be overlooked for so long? Banksy was with the Connecticut Humane Society for over 300 days before the right people came along to bring him home. When Banksy first came to CHS, he was a very anxious cat. While he could be shy at first though, when you got to know him he was sweet and friendly, so the behavior team at CHS determined that Banksy could benefit from a bit of socializing. They set a specific group of volunteers, called the Fur Squad, to slowly and steadily socialize with Banksy so that he could be braver about the world. Without the wonderful community of volunteers, donors, and pet lovers here in Connecticut, none of Banksy's medical or behavioral care would have been possible. After all his time waiting and learning how to be brave, Banksy went home to some cat savvy owners who love him dearly. Thanks to Reynolds Subaru, more pets like Banksy have the chance for bright futures. During the Subaru Love Pets campaign, Reynolds donated $100 for every dog and cat adoption, so other pets would have the same love, support, and success that Banksy did here at the Connecticut Humane Society. On top of that, Reynolds' donated Bark Boxes for newly adopted dogs to go home with a few goodies to get them started in their new lives. Thank you Reynolds' Subaru!

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.

Roxanne's Road to Recovery - Kathryn S

When you’re a dog, there’s just no time for discouragement. Even when you’re hit by a car and break your leg, even after you’ve been through animal control and get transferred to the Connecticut Humane Society and then get your leg amputated because it never healed right… Even then, when you’re a dog, you have this innate ability to believe in the good in people, and you can learn how to love and trust them again. Sometimes it just takes a minute for that brightness to return to your eyes, and to get that big ol’ grin back on your face – but it’ll come back in the right hands. After Roxanne’s difficulties, CHS’ medical and behavior staff were the right hands for her. After losing her leg, Roxanne needed time and space to heal and to learn how to live on three legs, and with CHS’ support the whole way, thanks to the generous donations from the Subaru Share the Love Event, she was undeniably bouncing back and blooming. As a two-year-old black and white shepherd mix, Roxanne had never actually been trained – she didn’t know the basic commands like sit, or lay down, she was always pulling on her leash and quickly let the staff know she was a high-energy dog with a lot to say. Roxanne was eager to be a good girl, though. As it turned out, one of the key ingredients to Roxanne’s success was keeping a little stuffed toy in her mouth to keep her calm, cool, and collected! CHS staff dedicated lots of time to Roxanne’s medical recovery, none of which would have been possible without the support from the community and from the Subaru Loves Pets campaign. She also received behavioral training so she’d be household ready when the right person came along. And then, one day, he did. And after all that she had been through, and all the progress that she had made, Roxanne left CHS skipping down the road - off to her new home, beside her new dad. And because Roxanne was adopted during the Subaru Loves Pets campaign, Schaller Subaru donated $100 in honor of Roxanne's adoption, for other pets to have the same love, support, and success that Roxanne did here at the Connecticut Humane Society. Thank you Schaller Subaru!

Schaller Subaru Loves Learning! - Vince G

On September 13th, Schaller Subaru visited Slade Middle school in New Britain to inform 6 lucky teachers they had been chosen as Adopt-A-Classroom.org recipients! These teachers, chosen by their vice-principal for their outstanding efforts, were given supply kits with essential classroom supplies as well as a monetary donation to help cover the out-of-pocket expenses that all teachers deal with. The teachers and staff at Slade were so appreciative and the team from Schaller Subaru truly enjoyed meeting these local educators and showing them our appreciation for all that they do!

Subaru supports cancer patients - Kate W

This July, the Bristol Hospital Cancer Care Center received beautiful blankets from Vince Giordano and his team at Schaller Subaru. The blankets are given to patients during their treatments in the infusion center. The sherpa blankets are so soft and cozy, definitely a step up from the standard issue hospital blankets. It’s so nice that our patients get to keep them to have a soft quality blanket at home. Some cancer treatments make patients cold sensitive so the blankets truly meet the need of keeping them warm. The blankets are an extra touch of love and care that are definitely appreciated when you are receiving cancer treatment. Many thanks to Schaller Subaru from the patients and staff at Bristol Hospital Cancer Care Center!!
