"It is very rewarding to be able to help our local school system that touches several students," said Auge'

Vanity License Plates for Odie - Jenna M

Through our partnership with Teton Motors Subaru, the Animal Adoption Center (AAC) hosted Fall Adoption Drive following our Spay/Neuter Clinic on the Wind River Reservation in October. After inviting four regional animal welfare organizations there were approximately twelve dogs and ten cats that attended. The AAC and Teton Motors Subaru helped nearly twenty pets find their perfect, loving homes. Thanks to Dave Auge from Teton Motors Subaru, we were able to reach animals in dire need, connect them with the community, and help them find their families. Odie is the perfect example. Meet Odie, formerly known as Oliver. The Animal Adoption Center (AAC) team first met Odie when their Spay/Neuter Wyoming Team was on the Wind River Reservation in Fort Washakie, WY hosting their fall spay/neuter clinic, free for all registered tribal members. A tribal member pulled up on the first day with a car full of dogs. She claimed her neighbor did not have the resources to get her animals spay/neutered and they were procreating on her land, exacerbating the problem. Unfortunately, she was not able to feed them either. This good citizen helping out her adjacent neighbor brought in a prolific mom and her puppies. To our knowledge the mom had been consistently birthing litters of puppies and the conditions were so harsh many of the puppies were not making it. She took it upon herself to stop this perpetuating cycle. She had found homes for all the puppies (after they were sterilized of course) but there was one that was still homeless. That was Odie. Without hesitation the AAC team immediately committed to taking Odie to ensure a long, healthy, and neutered ;) life! He entered our foster program and got spoiled by his temporary family filled with kids, dogs, and even a cat and put him in crate and potty-training boot camp. In fact, thanks to the ASPCA and Subaru Loves Pets, all the animals that were welcomed into the AAC rescue & adoption program had their adoption ready costs sponsored including spay/neuter, vaccinations, and microchips! By the time the Subaru Loves Pets Fall Adoption Drive rolled around, Odie was ready to graduate from foster puppy to forever home! As community members joined the event, Odie caught the eye of one particular attendee. As he started inquiring about Odie the gentlemen shared his rescue story of his current dog and how they were best friends (he even had vanity license plates with his dog’s name.) The AAC team knew he was the perfect adopter. Odie didn’t skip a beat and went home for a trial foster period and before he knew it his adoption was final! Teton Motors, Subaru, and the ASPCA played such a critical role in Odie’s journey. Between sponsoring his adoption ready costs to hosting an adoption drive where Odie met his family, the AAC is forever grateful for these partnerships.

Thank you Hi David, I just wanted to reach out to thank you for the blankets that you supplied to the Community Resource Center of Teton Valley on behalf of Subaru. It is so nice to have blankets on hand to offer clients if they have a poor heating source or even worse, are homeless in this harsh climate. We have already passed out a few and clients have commented on their nice quality. Thanks for thinking of us! All the best, Betsy Hawkins, RN, MSN Executive Director Community Resource Center of Teton Valley 1420 N Hwy 33, Suite 204PO Box 1519 Driggs, ID 83422 Phone: 208-354-0870

Nemo's Lucky Fin - Jenna M

Meet Nemo. Nemo's story starts when he was found at the dump in poor condition on the Wind River Reservation (WRR) by a good citizen. Little did he know he was hitting the doggie jackpot that day. Ruby, his savior, welcomed him into her warm home and got him to the vet ASAP. It was clear that he had sustained a serious injury and that if he wasn't found he would not have lasted much longer by himself. As soon as his injury was diagnosed, our partners on the WRR reached out to us knowing that we typically have the capacity to take on medical cases thanks to our amazing supporters who make it possible. He was immediately transferred to us in case this injury was time sensitive. Thanks to Jackson Animal Hospital and Dr. Wienman they were able to squeeze Nemo in that day to get looked at. After an initial exam and X-rays it was clear that Nemo's leg had sustained a traumatic injury and was "shattered" beyond repair. Amputation was the only option to give Nemo a normal life. Surgery was successful and Nemo entered a medical foster for a couple of weeks to monitor his recovery. His foster mom, Kelly, made sure he was well-cared for, socialized, and loved. Four weeks post amputation he went in for a recheck and additional X-rays to make sure everything was healing correctly. After passing all of his tests, Dr. Wienman gave Nemo the green light to get adopted. We knew that Nemo deserved someone special and we wanted to guarantee him that the day he was found at the dump was going to be the last bad day of his whole life. A wonderful retired couple from Toronto, Ontario submitted an application and we knew they were the ones. By the time their daughter came to the Animal Adoption Center to meet Nemo they had already scheduled him to see a tripod specialist in Toronto, made a vet appointment for his remaining shots, and figured out the logistics to get him to Canada. Their daughter fostered him for the weekend to make sure it would be a good fit. When we called to check in and ask for an adoption decision they broke down in tears and were so thankful to have crossed paths with Nemo.We are so thankful that the Animal Adoption Center has amazing supporters like Subaru that makes saving lives like Nemo possible.

Crabcake's Long Journey to Health and Safety - Jenna M

The Animal Adoption Center is a nonprofit animal rescue located in Jackson, Wyoming dedicated to saving the lives of homeless animals through rescue, adoption, education and spay/neuter. Thanks to our wonderful supporters at Teton Motors Subaru, we can help animals, like Crabcake, that have found themselves in the shelter system with little time to spare. Crabcake's story is one that is unfortunately common in the animal rescue world. Her journey begins in Laredo, Texas where the pet overpopulation problem is uncontrollable and the shelter system is overrun by stray or surrendered animals. Once in the shelter, their days are limited and if the animal is suffering from a medical diagnosis, they have even less time before shelter workers are forced to euthanize for space. This summer the AAC worked tirelessly with their partners, Dog Is My Copilot, to help reduce euthanasia in shelters nationwide and give dogs like Crabcake a second chance! Dog Is My Copilot (DIMC) is also a 501c(3) that transports at risk animals from overcrowded shelters to adoption centers in other geographic regions where loving families are waiting to adopt them. DIMC organized multiple flights with the Laredo, Texas shelter in hopes of getting their high euthanasia rates down and the AAC team joined every rescue effort they could. Crabcake found herself in the shelter system this past September with nowhere to go and no one to claim her. The AAC team immediately “tagged” her for transport to come join their rescue program. Upon arrival on September 26, the staff noticed that she had a bad limp and would need to see a veterinarian immediately. Her initial consult at Jackson Animal Hospital revealed that she was suffering from severe hip dysplasia and her treatment plan had limited options. Crabcake received a full leg amputation to alleviate her bad hip and strengthen her other leg. Shortly after her surgery she found her forever home here in the Tetons and is well on her way to being fully recovered as a tri-pod. It is because of the dedicated supporters like Teton Motors Subaru that the AAC is able to take in dogs like Crabcake with no hesitation and get them the help that they need and deserve.

Breathing a little easier, thanks to Subaru. - Amy K

Uinta Senior Citizens Inc is proud to be a “Meals on Wheels” member and recipient of a 2018 Subaru from Subaru America’s 50 cars for 50 years. Our staff and volunteers not only provide a hot meal to our clients but also use the meal delivery time to do a “wellness check”. Each “Meals on Wheels” delivery person is required to see or hear a client before leaving the home. The “wellness check” allows us to make sure our clients are safe. Louise Davis is one of the Seniors we serve in the Bridger Valley of Wyoming. This past winter our meal delivery volunteer noticed Ms. Davis wasn’t doing very well when she delivered her lunch. Ms. Davis stated she “had hardly got up out of her easy chair over the last couple of days.” Our volunteer passed this information along to family members whom were all out of town at the time believing everything was all right.Family members took Ms. Davis to the Doctor who discovered her oxygen levels were too low. After further review, they also discovered she had mixed up her medications; taking 2 blood pressure pills instead of one. Her Doctors let the family know that this truly was a life-threatening issue and could have had a much different outcome if the Uinta Senior Citizens “Meals on Wheels” volunteer not been there that day.Her son has this to say: “She certainly is eating a more balanced diet now, and family is relieved to know another person stops by regularly; they will be alerted to a problem or problems more quickly than our family or our neighbors. My mother is doing much better now. My siblings and I are thankful for the "Meals on Wheels" program and the donated Subaru Outback makes arriving at our mother’s house a certainty in the Wyoming winters. We all breathe a little easier knowing the meals that come regularly are delivered by someone who cares.” Thanks to Subaru,"Meals on Wheels" will arrive at Ms. Davis’ house as scheduled! Ms. Davis is pictured with Shellie-"Meals on Wheels" staff.

Uinta Senior Center Loves our Subaru - Aimee O

Deep within the Rocky Mountains of Southwest Wyoming, 100 miles East of Salt Lake City, UT, lies the Bridger Valley, a rural community comprised of the small towns of Fort Bridger, Urie, Mountain View and Lyman all spread out several miles from each other. The winter weather can be unpredictable and unforgiving. Jean is one of the seniors living in this rugged community; Jean does not have a car and suffers from debilitating asthma making mobility and cooking extremely challenging for her. Jean is very grateful for the meals she receives and she states: “I like the meals, they are helpful and have a lot of food in them.” The Outback has made it possible to reach Jean, as well as providing a safe and reliable trip for our delivery staff. Thanks to Subaru's Love Promise, Uinta Senior Citizens and Meals on Wheels are able to deliver hot, nutritious meals to Jean and several others just like her.
