Wally, last but not least! - Robin C

Through our partnership with Clay Subaru, we hosted an adoption event on October 14th. We brought 6 adoptable dogs to the dealership hoping to place them into forever homes. We brought Wally, a 6 month, 40 pound mixed breed pup that had been with us for some time. He arrived to the Guest House on July 7th with his 9 littermates. All of Wally's siblings had been adopted and Wally was last but not least to find a home. We were hopeful that someone would want to adopt this funny, lovable boy. We had adopted 4 of the 6 dogs at the event and along came a nice couple "just looking" as their beloved 10 year old Lucy had just crossed the rainbow bridge. They weren't quite ready to open their home to another pup... until they met Wally. They inquired with a few volunteers about him. Why has he not been adopted? Wally is great on leash, house trained, smart, goofy and just a love... It was the luck of being the last of the litter to find their home. I spoke to this nice couple and as we were discussing Wally, they started to cry. Bittersweet tears for the loss of Lucy and for the dog they wanted to adopt. It was a sign that they were there that day and met Wally. Two day later, they arrived to pick up Wally and bring him to his forever home. It was a wonderful send off of love from his caretakers at the Guest House. We couldn't have been any happier for both humans and canine. Here is their 1 month follow up: "It has been 1 month since we welcomed our very treasured addition, Wally, to our family. Wally is the most lovable, smart, energetic, sassy love bug of a puppy! He has become quite the excellent traveler, visiting both his brother in NH and his sister in VA. His favorite part of the day is playing fetch in our backyard and hiding all the balls. Wally loves his daily walks around the neighborhood and park. We love his endless hugs and kisses. Lastly, he matches our kitchen floor...so, it was meant to be. In this month of being thankful, we are so very thankful for Shultz's Guest House for letting us adopt Our Wally!!" We want to thank Oscar Lidoni and his team at Clay Subaru for helping us promote our adoptable dogs. They are truly an organization we love being partner with! They love our dogs as much as we do and they are all so nice! I

Fisher House of Boston - Abigail D

Clay Subaru has been a tireless supporter of the Fisher House of Boston for many years. Each year Clay Subaru’s donation directly impact military families that have traveled to Boston for medical care by providing over 200 nights of lodging. The impact that this support has on our families is beyond words. From one of our families “Times where we didn’t know when we were coming home, the Fisher House made us comfortable without having to worry about traveling and the expenses those bring when you have a child, or spouse in the hospital… The Fisher House of Boston, and those who have supported us - we can never thank you enough for relieving our burdens in our darkest days, and hours.” Thank you Clay Subaru for your continued support of the Fisher House of Boston and our military families. Attached is a photo of Cal, whose mom wrote the above quote while he was hospitalized at Boston Children’s Hospital.

Slay Subaru partners with Shultz's Guest House - Robin C

We were asked if we would like to partner with Clay Subaru for events and such. We of course said yes! We have found the family at Clay to be very appreciative of our organization and what we strive for. Being a 501c3 dog rescue organization, we love that Clay is willing to partner with us to help place dogs into loving homes. They promote a pet of the week and are willing to hold adoption events at their location. We are graciously allowed to pop in with puppies for the Clay family to snuggle and love on. They held an adoption event for us in October at their location and we adopted out 4 dogs! We were pleasantly surprised at what they did for the event. Balloons, a tent, prizes, give aways, lunch boxes and an ice cream truck! They truly outdid themselves and we were so, so appreciative of their involvement! For the month of October, the collected donations and brought them to us. Toys, food, cleaning supplies and in return, they got to snuggle a few pups. We were very appreciative and we look forward to having more events with them. We love that organizations such as theirs is involved with their community.

Subaru Loves Pets – Neponset Valley Humane Society - Catherine T

Bruiser, a very friendly and adorable 4 year old, was surrendered to NVHS when his medical issues escalated to the point where his family could no longer afford his care. Unfortunately, it's not uncommon for male cats to have bladder issues and blockage. This is a life-threatening condition and if not treated soon enough, many cats do not survive. Bruiser had just been seen by a vet a few days prior to NHVS bringing him into our Foster program. However, within 24 hours it was obvious he wasn't doing well. He was rushed to Tufts Veterinary & Specialty Services in Walpole. Bruiser spent 5 days in the ER while the doctors worked tirelessly to unblock his urinary tract. He was finally doing well and was released. One of the wonderful veterinarians fell in love with Bruiser and offered to foster him while he recovered. Unfortunately, Bruiser needed to be admitted to the ER again and spent several more days. The doctors were able to unblock him, but he would quickly block again. It became evident that Bruiser would need life-saving surgery to correct this. Without that surgery, he would continue to be ill and probably not live much longer. The surgery is expensive, as was his hospital stay but we knew we must do save his life. Thankfully, the wonderful surgeon was able to perform the surgery with no issues and within a few days, Bruiser was doing great and ready for his forever home. Which wasn't too hard since he was a huge hit at the hospital and several people were interested in adopting him! NVHS receives only public donations and 100% goes directly to our many successful programs. We are especially grateful to Subaru for their generous donation as it will help pay for Bruiser's medical care. Thank you, Thank you! We just cannot thank you enough!

Clay Subaru to the Rescue - Kim T

On a recent trip to the Boston area to visit family my 2022 leased Outback from my home region of the Hudson Valley in New York State had unexpected serious engine trouble. Oh no! Thankfully my family members had been customers of Clay Subaru and knew how reliable and helpful they would be so we limped the car there from their home. The Clay Subaru team was amazing!! They squeezed me into their full service schedule, got the diganostics, parts and completed repair done in a few days, gave me a lovely loaner of the same model in which to return home (a 3-4 hour drive to the wild west!) AND arranged with my home dealer to drive my car back out west and drive their own loaner back with their staff. SO far above and beyond the usual level of service. After 15 years of driving nothing but Subaru cars I have come to expect excellent service and accountability but the Clay Subaru Service team - especially service agent John Malloch and service manager Edwin Hernandez- set a whole new level! Everyone involved was lovely to work with, extra helpful, patient and communicative - my heroes! If only I lived in the Boston area....Thank you Clay Subaru!
