Fee Waived Adoption Program - Jennifer E

The first ever animal adoption event in Salina was a big success Saturday. A planned three hour event was cut short after an overwhelming response in which every dog and cat was adopted. The Salina Animal Shelter, using a grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, partnered with Subaru of America and Money Automotive Center to host a free adoption event. The donated funds from the ASPCA offset costs related to adoptions, including: spay/neuter surgeries,microchips and vaccinations. The event, held at Money Automotive Center, was scheduled to go from noon until three, or until all of the animals were adopted. It took only a matter of minutes to adopt them. There were people lined up even before the event began. According to Salina Animal Services Manager Vanessa Cowie there were a total of 39 adoptions. “It was a great day,” Cowie said. Organizers did not know what to expect, with it being the first time an event like this was held. Everyone involved was pleasantly surprised with the overwhelming response. The fees waived adoption event in Salina was held in October for a reason. October is Adopt-A-Dog Month, established in 1981 asan annual event to encourage people to save lives and enhance their own livesby adopting a dog from a shelter or rescue group. It is also Subaru Love Pets Month for Money Automotive who will also be collecting donations for the rest of the month forSalina Animal Services.

On Wednesday, May 31st, 2017, Money Subaru presented Make-A-Wish® Kansas with two checks for a total of $17,469.00 for their 8th annual #ShareTheLove campaign. The organization, staff and support from Subaru of America, Inc. stepped up to the plate to help grant a wish for six-year-old Hayden. Hayden is from Carlton, Kansas who is fighting leukemia. He is a true outdoorsman and loves to hunt and fish with his best friend by his side, his dog Hunter. When given the opportunity to wish for anything in the world, Hayden wished to have his very own camper to take on fishing trips to the lake. Because of Money Subaru's generous donation, Hayden will have his wish granted this year! We cannot wait to see the look on his face when presented with his camper because his dreams will then become a reality! Thank you Money Subaru and Subaru of America, Inc. for supporting Make-A-Wish®Kansas to grant this very special wish for a very special kid and other children like Hayden.

Love, Chloe Foundation - Heidi L

The Love, Chloe Foundation started in March 2008 in memory of Chloe Feyerherm who was diagnosed with DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma) at the age of 6 in November 2006. After several treatments, at the age of 7 in 2007, Chloe earned her wings in heaven. The Love, Chloe Foundation was created to support other families with children who have cancer. The Love, Chloe Foundation started the Monkey In My Chair program in 2009 which is a nationwide program that helps young children stay connected with their class while they are away for cancer treatments. Then in 2011, the Love, Chloe Foundation teamed up with the Cure Starts Now Foundation to help the Monkey in My Chair program expand and gain funding opportunities. On November 12, 2015, Money Automotive donated $1,925.00 to the Love, Chloe Foundation as part of the "Subaru Gives Back" program. Rebecca Charbonneau, Mark Erlemeier, Donna Smith, Carolyn Money, Mike Money, and Mike Wernecke were on hand to present the check to the organization.
