Beatrix from Palm Valley Animal Society - Teodoro L

Beatrix had so much going against her adoption. She was an adult pitbull mix who had heartworms and a history of very timid and cautious behavior. For six months, she sat quietly in her kennel, waiting for just the right match. When she spent time in our lobby, she would nervously tap her feet when someone approached her, wanting attention but just not quite sure how to receive it. When the Lopez family came in looking for a new pet, adoption counselors suggested they just take a look at Beatrix. Counselors brought her from her kennel out to meet the three kids, and to the surprise of everyone, she melted in their arms. Little people were exactly what she needed! The Lopez family wasn't deterred by her breed, size or heartworm status. She's doing great in her home and has already started her heartworm treatments. Thank you Subaru for supporting the animals of Palm Valley Animal Society and the people of the Rio Grande Valley!

A Smile So Bright - Julian W

It was early morning when a staff member drove into the parking lot of the Laurie P. Andrews Center when she spotted a small dog along the fence of the on-site, community dog park. At first glance, the little dog seemed to have belonged at the park with his care-giver possibly just out of view, but at closer inspection, the light-brown pup was alone and had a noticeable limp, dragging his left hind leg behind him as he hobbled along the park’s fence line. We called him Roger, a standard smooth hair, Dachshund who hid a multitude of shocking injuries through a friendly, canine smile. The back of his neck displayed a terrible gash between his shoulder blades that extended down along his backside, a traumatic injury that most likely resulted from being hit by a car though our veterinarians could not put a definitive finger on the actual cause. Roger’s limping leg was given x-rays, which we now have the ability to provide at PVAS for the first time in our history. The images showed multiple breaks along the tibia from a previous injury--an injury that had healed improperly causing poor Roger to have grown accustomed to dragging it as he moved. And worse: tiny yet distinctive round objects scattered in the affected leg--tell-tale x-ray images of birdshot. In other words, at some point before seeking refuge at the parking lot of the Palm Valley Animal Society, Roger’s leg had suffered a shotgun blast. PVAS Animal Techs were quick to aid Roger who, despite his ragged wounds, approached them willingly, tongue out, and happy as can be. Can you believe the remarkable disposition of this dog? When approached with a kennel to transport him inside the Andrews Center Clinic, Roger stepped in immediately where other dogs are reluctant at best. Still all smiles, Roger was examined and treated by Dr. Lisa, Palm Valley Animal Society’s in-house veterinarian. Unfortunately, his afflicted hind leg needed to be amputated; there was no mending it due to the complication of the improperly healed breaks, but thanks to medical and surgical supplies from our supporters at the Banfield Foundation, Roger received exceptional, life-altering care. After a period of recovery, it was up to local RGV residents, just like you, to help Roger next. A local foster family stepped forward and hosted the little pooch in their home where he enjoyed the company of his new caregivers and their other dogs. He returned to our care after an entire month, enjoying daily walks and playing fetch with his favorite tennis ball at various doggy playgrounds at the Andrews Center. Roger, with a heart-of-gold, bearing a grin through such traumas, was described by our veterinary team as a dog who had been through “so many terrible things and just wanted to be loved”, “a quirky little dog with only 3 legs” who you’d never have guessed suffered so much due to his disarming smiles and penchant for play and human affection. It’s amazing how Roger went through so much and was still able to trust and love people he didn’t know (a great lesson for us all). He truly is a one-of-a-kind, and he didn’t remain at PVAS for long. Within 2 weeks and many-a-Facebook post later, Roger was adopted by a loving family from San Juan, Texas where he enjoys car rides to the park and the comforts of a brand new forever-home. We are thankful for his new family; it brings all of us at PVAS relief knowing he is safe and will never be abused again or subjected to fear for his life by cruel hands. Roger’s happy outcome relied on the assistance of so many caring and dedicated people. He had the collaborative support of our community, our partners, and staff members. Together, we all saved Roger’s life, and the Subaru Loves Pets Campaign will help to continue making that difference for other animals just like him.

Compassion Meets Hope - Jacqueline R

On July 11th, Mario Cavazos, and other staff from Bert Ogden Subaru delivered blankets, messages of hope cards, and arts & Crafts to Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance Cancer Center. Our Patient Access Manager, Chelsea Hart, was thrilled to see Subaru’s Blanket Distribution as this was her first experience with Subaru Loves to Care. Throughout this experience, she felt “inspired to see the Ogden Subaru family be so involved and thoughtful to each patient they saw.” The Ogden Subaru staff were excited to engage with patients and their families. Chelsea and Doctor’s Hospital staff were touched to see how genuine the Ogden staff were to bring smiles and warmth to each patient. So much so, the Ogden crew prayed with each patient and their families. “It was very emotional to see the pain in the patient's eyes. We wanted them to know we are praying for them. We do this because we want to bring hope and encouragement. We know they can beat this disease,” Mario expressed to Chelsea. Mario and his staff were grateful to have met more than 30 patients that day. “We want to make sure that every patient knows that Bert Ogden Subaru is one of their biggest supporters. Almost each and every one of us knows someone who has been impacted by this horrible disease. I personally know so many people. This is why this blanket distribution means more to me than just a donation. It means compassion, hope, and support. We will look forward to doing this every year until that cure.”

Over the last 2 years, Wilbur E. Lucas Elementary partnered with our PTO, school administrators,and the school community to volunteer to beautify our school patio and habitat during the spring school beautification season. In an era of budget cuts, School Beautification Day has become a welcome tradition for students,parents and administrators, alike. A well manicured school patio and habitat communicates that native wildlife matters to our students and builds favor with the school community. We look forward to our next School Patio and Habitat Beautification Day.
