HART Enjoys a Fun Adoption Day at Farrish! - Kim R

Homeless Animals Rescue Team in Northern Virginia works every single day to save the lives of homeless, injured, sick, and abandoned dogs and cats. We do this because we love these animals and want them to have a real chance for a loving forever home that they all deserve. True rescue is expensive, though, and we rely totally on donations to pay for the extraordinary vet bills we incur. When Farrish Subaru offered a partnership with HART, we were honored to be sure. On October 16, 2022, we enjoyed a warm welcome when we held an adoption event at the dealership. We were truly made to feel like family, and it was obvious that their support for the cause of rescue was genuine. Because of their true care and concern for our mission, HART now has a digital slide show in the lovely service area waiting room, where the customers can enjoy learning more about the available dogs and cats in our rescue, and our upcoming events and volunteer opportunities. This level of support is rare, and we at HART will always remember the folks at Farrish Subaru as a truly caring and generous team.

Farrish Subaru Adoption Event - Brittany D

October is all about pets! Farrish Subaru has teamed up with our annual partner and local shelter Homeless Animals Rescue Team (HART) to host an adoption event at our store. They are a wonderful organization located in Fairfax Station, VA. They are a non-profit no-kill animal shelter that has been active in our local community since 1990. They are committed to helping families and individuals find their new best friend and are well known for their efforts at assisting animals in times of need. This rescue team runs adoption events frequently and are always accepting donations online or in person. On October 16th, we had the pleasure of hosting an adoption event where a few dogs and cats spent the day with us that were all looking for their "furever" homes. There was a great turnout and quite a few families stopped by to meet the HART team and start the conversation about adopting a new pet. Throughout the month of October we are donating $100 per pet adopted through this shelter. We can’t wait to continue sharing the love with our pets and support a wonderful local rescue team!

Farrish Subaru Field Day! - Brittany D

Our partner school for Subaru Loves Learning, Daniels Run Elementary, reached out to us for some additional help for their Field Day! A few members of our team were available and ready to have some fun. At the field day there were so many activities for the kids and they had such a great time. When we arrived we were assigned to a game called TrashketBall! In this game there was a trashcan in the middle of the court and a ton of plastic dots thrown around it. The class split up into teams and one at a time had to stand on a dot and try to make the ball into the trash can. If they made it they took the dot back to their team and whoever had the most wins! We were able to keep a watchful eye, helped when needed and made sure everyone had fun. Farrish Subaru really enjoys volunteering in our community whenever possible. It was so much fun to jump in and help with this field day!

Farrish Subaru had the pleasure of donating six supply filled boxes to Daniels Run Elementary School! We also had our team and customers write little notes of appreciation to all the teachers to show how much we care. The supply kits included things like pencils, dry erase boards & markers, headphones, Lysol wipes and more! The box afterwards can turn into a beautiful butterfly habitat. We happened to stop by on their open house day right before school starts next week. Mr. Smith, the principal, was kind enough to also take us on a little tour around the school and introduce us to a few teachers. This school hosts 1st grade all the way to 6th grade. Everyone in the front office was extremely pleasant and excited to put up our school bus and appreciation notes on display for everyone to see.

Keeping our Parks Beautiful - Brittany D

The sales department from Farrish Subaru took a half day and dedicated their time to tidying up their community park. Nottoway Park is located in Vienna, Virginia about a 10 minute drive from the dealership. A lot of our staff and client base spend time with their families in the outdoors and frequent this local park so keeping it clean is a must. There are so many awesome outdoor activities available at this park. We were able to spread out and cover a lot of ground and managed to remove a decent amount of litter. Farrish Subaru is committed to contributing to keep our Parks beautiful.

Healing Loss - Kristen L

I adopted Kent after losing a cat that was very important to me suddenly to cancer. I went online and search of the perfect cat but never really thought Momo could be replaced. Momo was really special companion cat for me, a "lap kitty" in the only one I had ever known or had. After Hours and weeks and months of searching for the perfect cat, I drove 2 hours to be introduced to Kent. He was called lap kitty when there are so few of them out there. I know right one meeting him when he crawled into my lap that he was the one for me. And right after taking him home, I learned that this cat was the special one who could heal the hole in my heart. We've been inseparable ever since. Thank you Rescue Angels of Southern Maryland for giving me Kent and thank Ourisman Subaru of Waldorf for choosing to donate to this wonderful rescue!
