The 2019 Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment Award

What is the Subaru Love Promise?

Subaru and our retailers believe in making the world a better place and the Subaru Love Promise is our vision of respecting all people. This is our commitment to show love and respect to our customers and to work to make a positive impact in the world.

The Subaru Love Promise Community Commitment

We believe in being a positive force in something bigger. And it all starts right here in our community. Not just by our donations, but by our actions.

That's why we stay true to our Love Promise Community Commitment by partnering with a wide variety of community nonprofits and charities.

Every year, we join hands with our owners in the "Share the Love" event, giving back to our community-a community that's given so much to us.

So, every day, we strive to ensure our love is felt not just by our customers, but by all in our community. We do this because we feel it is the right thing to do.

We are proud to participate in the Love Promise Community Commitment. We're grateful, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve and support the causes and passions that are closest to our hearts, right here in our neighborhood.

All of the organizations we support have one thing in common: the unwavering dedication to improve the world and the lives of ­its people.

Love Promise Stories from Subaru of Santa Fe

Subaru and Subaru of Santa Fe believe in making a positive impact on the communities in which we live and work. We uphold that belief through our Love Promise Community Commitment. Every month, we select inspiring stories from customers and partners from around our area who strive to support our collective commitment and feature them here

The cat project  –  Jason B

The Cat Project Subaru of Santa Fe and the Santa Fe Animal Shelter are proud partners in the quest to give animals a better life. Here at Subaru of Santa Fe, we had a problem. Rodents were going after our cars. We used poison to control them, but that created other problems. The poisons could be passed on to the local predators like snakes, hawks, owls, and coyotes that fed on the rodents. We really didn’t like this solution, but with 100’s of thousands of dollars at stake, we had no choice. In one of our planning meetings with the Santa Fe Animal shelter, we jokingly said “what we need are some barn cats” We did not realize that this would be the genesis of providing a second chance to a number of ferocious hunters. The Santa Fe Animal shelter had a problem of their own. They had managed the incredible achievement of becoming a No Kill Shelter, meaning that less than 5% of the animals they took in would be euthanized, while accepting ALL animals, including those other No Kill Shelters refused, such as feral cats, Pit Bulls, and the like. This meant they had many cats that were not candidates for traditional adoption. That lead to the creation of the Barn Cat program. These cats are all spayed or neutered, given all necessary shots and medical care, and placed with local homes that agree to provide a safe home for them, with food, water, secure and weatherproof shelter, and medical care. The issue is there are not many homes for these cats. This was a wonderful opportunity for us to help solve both our problems by partnering with them. So we got to work creating a safe and secure space on our property that these cats could call home. We started with five cats, who patrol our lot to keep the rodent population down without the use of poison or traps. These original five have done so well that we have brought in four more, who are in the process of adjusting to their new surroundings and will join their fellow mousers soon. We no longer have any poison on the premises and we haven’t had any rodent damage on any cars since. Our Love promise is; we will continue to support the Santa Fe Animal shelter’s mission to solve pet homelessness. We will spread the story, in an effort to have other businesses create their own cat project.

Subaru Delivers Blankets to Cancer Patients  –  Kristja F

On August 10th, Subaru delivered 80 blankets to the St. Vincent Regional Cancer Center. This was an exciting day for LLS and for Subaru. This day was much different for Deborah, who was personally given a blanket by the Subaru team. This was her first day for treatment. Deborah was unsure what to expect, but she was comforted by the thought that an organization cared enough to make sure she was warm during her first treatment. Also supporting her and other patients are the wonderful volunteers that will be handing out the blankets. Joseph is a blood cancer survivor and volunteers at St. Vincent Regional Cancer Center. After surviving blood cancer he wanted to give back. He and others are there to support those currently going through chemotherapy. He looks forward to giving out warm blankets to others.

We will be there with you, for the long haul.  –  Jason B

Subaru of Santa Fe has a long standing relationship with the Santa Fe Animal shelter. Over the years this relationship has evolved to include the entire community. In Santa Fe, our dealership is synonymous with the shelter. The SFAS is a no kill shelter that accepts all animals, from fighting dogs to iguanas, the job they do is awe inspiring, and we are honored to fight the fight with them. The shelter's main goal is to solve pet homelessness, this is a battle that takes decades of community education. Spay, neuter initiatives etc. We will be there with them to see the results.

Subaru of Santa Fe loves animals!  –  Ben S

Shelter dogs Luna and Chai joined us this morning at Subaru of Santa Fe, where Jason Bass, the car dealership's general manager and his dog Pippen, handed us a check for more than $18,000! The money was collected through Subaru Inc., during their Share the Love holiday charity drive, where Subaru Inc. donated $250 for every car bought or leased during the holidays. The customers and staff at Subaru of Santa Fe could designate which charity they wanted and many chose us! Thank you so much, Jason, and everyone who drives a Subaru and loves animals so much! The much-needed money will go to support all our wonderful programs helping homeless animals! Subaru rocks!

Subaru of Santa Fe Supports Animal Welfare  –  Evelyn V

In December 2014, Subaru of Santa Fe participated in Subaru's month long "Share the Love" event. Subaru of Santa Fe selected the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society as their local charity. The funds raised through "Share the Love" A will help the Santa Fe Animal Shelter to provide food, shelter, medical treatment and other support to dozens of dogs, cats, and other homeless pets. In addition to "Share the Love", Subaru of Santa Fe held its second annual pet adoption in December 2014. This event was also co-sponsored by the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society. The shelter set up adoption tents at Subaru of Santa Fe and invited the community to visit the adoptable pets over the two day event. Santa Paws also made a special appearance at the event! Visitors were welcome to take their newly adopted or their own family pet for a holiday picture with Santa Paws. The event was a fundraiser for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society. In addition 22 pets were adopted during this event, making it a great success. Subaru of Santa Fe feels that there is more to us than just selling and servicing cars. We feel it is our duty to give back to our community, Dogs, cats and pets are very important to our customers and our associates. The Santa Fe Animal shelter is an incredible organization, but what really makes them special is their people. They are passionate, caring, loving people, and we are honored to work together with them.
