Holiday Partnership! - JOHN C

In 2018 we launched the Greenhouse Project in Chester seeking long term transformation of individuals, families and communities. Our simple approach is to live side by side with the people struggling in order to create a lasting impact. We seek help to break cycles of addiction, abuse and poverty while rebuilding families. But we cannot do this alone, we needed real partners to step to the plate. The Rafferty Family has been there since the beginning to help offer advice and support. Recently in November of 2020, Rafferty Subaru patterned by donating blankets for our Thanksgiving Food outreach. Not only were we able to help families with food, but help those in need with warm blankets. We are so blessed by Rafferty Subaru and their family’s values, in seeking to help those struggling in local communities. Can't wait to share all the stories of transformation. Thank you for partnering with us!

19 adoptions - including Beauty - despite COVID-19 - Justina C

Every year, Providence Animal Center (PAC), based in Media, PA, hosts adoption events at Rafferty Subaru in Newtown Square, PA. Every year, pet lovers stop by the showroom to meet furry friends. But 2020 proved to be different. How could we have a successful event in a pandemic? Where there's a will, there's a way! Adoptions were pre-booked and no walk-ups were allowed. Masks were required along with 6-foot distancing. Half of the event took place outside, in a covered, heated area. Both the indoor and outdoor locations for the event had a select number of people allowed at any given time. Not only were we able to host a successful adoption event on Oct. 17, we hosted the MOST successful adoption event in PAC-Rafferty event history: in three hours, 19 pets found forever homes, including a 6-month-old puppy named Beauty who was often overlooked in the shelter. A month later, we received the most wonderful happy 'tail' from Beauty's new mom, Jacqueline, who told PAC: "My little "Beauty" was adopted from the Rafferty Subaru Adoption Event. I changed her name to Dottie. She is just wonderful, my best friend, my sweet little baby. Thank you guys at Providence for all the wonderful care you give to all animals." Enclosed, find pictures of Beauty on her adoption day and happy with her forever mom, enjoying daily adventures.

Rafferty Subaru Caring for the Local Community - Agnes B

As the president of the local Highland Park Kirklyn Association we are always looking for businesses to partner with us to help our neighbors in needs. In November Rafferty Subaru has worked with our group to get coats to children in need. Rafferty also donated books for the children which uplifted the children to own their own story books. In December Rafferty Subaru employees created a toy drive where children who were then treated to a brunch with Santa. Each child received the toy of their choice plus a warm meal, games and face painting. As a neighborhood civic group donors are so important and Rafferty Subaru is one business we can count on. Bob Rafferty. Kevin and Bobby Rafferty are always ready to help out those in need. In addition to these events for children, Rafferty has helped our group reach out to homeless veterans by donating items to fill backpacks with items such as shampoo, tissues and other personal items.

PACT for Animals - Judi G

PACT for Animals is a 501(c) 3. PACT Volunteers step up to offer long-term temporary foster care from a month to as long as two years at no charge. Foster care is available to our brave men and women going on active deployment and families with serious medical emergencies requiring long-term hospital care. PACT is there when there is no other choice other than surrender to a shelter. From newborns to seniors, PACT for Animals is there to keep their companions out of harm's way until the emergency has past and they can be reunited with their beloved "kids". The advancement of the human/animal bond, which is PACT's mission, creates extended families at almost every PACT reunion when these families are able to be reunited, two legged and four legged. There is never a dry eye at these reunions. Buzz Miller, learned that many soldiers were forced to surrender their pets to area shelters, before leaving on deployment from Major General John Gronski. Many in his command were leaving for dangerous areas around the world volunteering to serve their Country. Sadly, no animal welfare group was available on a volunteer basis to offer foster care for their "best friends", when all avenues for foster care had fallen through right before reporting for duty. Soldiers who volunteer to serve in the Armed Forces should not be faced with collateral damage as a trade off in service to our Country. PACT was founded to offer safe havens. PACT for Animals offers long term temporary foster care for families that find out, in their eleventh hour that all avenues for foster care have fallen through with their only choice, surrender to a shelter never to see them again. PACT volunteers open their hearts and their homes to companion pets to keep them out of harm’s way until they can be reunited with their families. The emotional value of pledging to foster companion pets for families, who are desperate to keep them out of harm’s way until they can be reunited, is priceless. Visit PACT’s website: PACTforAnimals.org or PACT for Animals on YouTube to watch some reunions and see how you can volunteer in a variety of ways or foster. When choosing a vehicle to pick up and drop off companion pets, Buzz Miller, founder of PACT for Animals' only choice was purchasing a Subaru from Rafferty Subaru in Newtown Square, PA because of a donation earmarked to PACT for a new vehicle to transport animals.

Subaru Loves Dogs! - Kevin T

We're Extremely excited to announce that our video, Driving shelters dogs in cars was featured on an episode of the nationally televised program. We teamed up with our friends at 6 ABC to give the lovable pups from Providence Animal Center and Main Line Animal Rescue, who are waiting to find their forever homes, a day to remember. We have been teaming up with Main Line Animal Rescue for almost half a Decade and have helped save a countless amount of animals including Kevin Rafferty own dog Matty that has been with him for almost a year now! As Our Love Promise to our Local Shelter we have also had adoption animals here in the Showroom to be Adopted from time to time. Dogs loves a nice car ride, which is why we at Rafferty Subaru decided it would be fun to take some of the area local shelter dogs on a chauffeured trip around town in a brand new Outback. Mosby, Daisy, Meggie and few other friends enjoyed a day out on the town in style with the wind in the hair. Don't forget to check out our heartwarming series Driving Shelter Dogs in cars on right this Minute! http://www.rightthisminute.com/video/rtmtv-shelter-dogs-star-heartwarming-car-commercial The reason why we thought it was necessary to air this is to create awareness for our fury little/big friends to reach as many people as they all deserve to be in a "Fur"ever home. Here at Rafferty Subaru its no customer leave unhappy and no dogs left without a Forever home.

Rafferty Subaru supports MLAR - Nicole S

Rafferty Subaru has worked with MLAR for the last 3 years to place animals. MLAR brings in their animals, cats and dogs to the dealership. There are ones that are available for adoption as well as ones that have already been rescued. The animals spend the day in the showroom while the volunteers give information to staff and customers about the adoption process and information about how else a person can help; such as donations of food, blankets and money. This pass November when MLAR came to visit it was a dreary, rainy Saturday morning. The dogs and cats helped bring in sunshine and fun. There is nothing better than holding a puppy that is so excited to be loved. There was face licking and kisses and barks and meows filling the air. Animal Planet sent us doggie flashlights and collapsible water bowls, as well as magnets and doggie liter bags to give away. It was a time for old friends that had meet at previous events to get together and share stories of the amazing things their dogs and cats do. (which they all said how much the animals love Subaru).

Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation - Jessica P

Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation is a charity to works with local PA auto dealers to secure new winter coats for children in the Delaware Valley. During the month of September, for every vehicle that was sold at Rafferty Subaru a new winter was donated. The program has been in effect since 2008 and has donated a total of 177,858 coats. This year the grand total was 37,606. Rafferty was instrumental in donating 175 of those coats, which went to the Partners in Outreach charity. During the month, Rafferty's showroom becomes covered in little "Bobby's and Cindy's". These are the children that were behind the forming of the foundation. Each customer who buys a vehicle signs one of the "Bobby's or Cindy's" to hang in the showroom. The customers found this a wonderful addition to their purchase of the new vehicle! Next year we are hoping to increase the number so more children will recieve coats to help keep them warm and have a new piece of clothing that they can be proud of!

Rafferty Subaru Participates in Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation - Maryanne P

Partners in Outreach is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide compassion in moments of need; recognizing opportunities, and inspiring both those who give and those who receive. They work to bring together people that need help with people that are able to give help. Sometimes it is as simple as a book, or as wonderful as a new Easter outfit. Rafferty Subaru is part of Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation. During the month of September for every car we sell we donate a new winter coat. We were able to donate 175 winter coats this year to Partners in Outreach so that they are able to donate them throughout Chester County PA. 175 children will be able to focus more on their education because they are not going to be worried about being cold.
