Making Rescuing Critters Possible - Susan T

Dear Findlay Subaru St. George, We wanted to let you know what a difference you make to the wild eagles, hawks, falcons, owls & so many other species of wildlife here in Utah. Your generous donations to the Southwest Wildlife Foundation of Utah over the past nine years has totaled over $80,000 and has helped us care for hundreds of sick, injured and orphaned wildlife and get them returned to health and released back into the wild where they belong. Our incredibly dependable Subaru Forester provides us with the reliable transportation we need to help us rescue so many critters. Just this summer we got a call from the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (UDWR) that we needed to drive 100 miles to an alfalfa farm between Filmore and Delta Utah to rescue seven baby barn owls. Their mom had made her nest up under the tarp of a huge stack of hay, so no one knew they were there. When the stack was sold, big semi-trucks came to uncover and load the big bales of hay onto their trucks. What a surprise it was to the truck drivers and farm workers when baby barn owls started falling from the haystack. These owls were fortunate. The farm workers knew how valuable owls are to our environment and how many mice they eat each night, helping keep the rodent population down around agricultural areas. They quickly and carefully rescued each of the babies and placed them into a box and called the UDWR who contacted us. Although mom and dad were displaced from their nest and babies, they saved seven baby owls that day. We are heading out on a road trip this next week to release these seven baby owls, now full grown and flying and feeding well on their own, at three or four different farms scattered around Southern Utah to give them the best chance of survival. Odds were that mom and dad could not have fed and raised all seven to maturity as that is a big nest. But now they all get a second chance to be released into the wild and help our environment once more. Thank you for helping our wild critters and our environment!

Findlay Subaru St. George Loves the Earth - Karyn K

Findlay Subaru St. George continues to show they Love the Earth through recycling in the waiting room as well as in the service drive! For the past few years, they have participated in the TerraCycle recycling program--putting out recyclable boxes in the waiting room for coffee capsules; candy and snack wrappers; and disposable cups, lids, and straws. Last year, they included the service drive through the Service Lane Program, recycling used Cabin Air Filters and Plastic Film. Once full, Findlay Subaru sends these Zero Waste recyclable boxes to the TerraCycle plant. Once collected, the waste is broken down and separated by material. Plastics are cleaned and pelletized, paper-based waste and organic waste (such as coffee grounds) are composted, and metals are melted down. TerraCycle will then have the collected waste turned into useful, high-quality recycled products, like park benches, picnic tables, and playground materials.

Findlay Subaru Partners to Support Education - Karyn K

Findlay Subaru is proud to partner with Balance of Nature and United We Pledge in their pursuit of educating our nation's children about the constitution. United We Pledge's goal for the American Village West is to restore patriotism in the youth and citizens through educational programs that celebrate freedom, family, and faith. One way they are doing so is a "Village to Village" run by extreme athlete Tom Jones. Tom's journey will start on April 19, 2022, and take him 1,968 miles on foot from the American Village in Montevallo, Alabama, to the future site of the American Village West in Hurricane, Utah. His journey will be 76 marathons over 76 days. This "Village to Village" run for United We Pledge will bring awareness and raise funds for the new American Village of the West. Findlay Subaru donated the use of their "Event Forester" as a pace car, outfitted with a large stereo system and wireless microphones, to help raise awareness of Tom's run and help motivate him along his journey. On July 2, 2022, Tom will finish his 76th marathon and participate in the groundbreaking ceremony, connecting East to West, and uniting us under the cause of preserving history and shaping the future of our great nation. For every dollar raised, Balance of Nature has committed to match up to $5,000,000. Visit the United We Pledge website to donate at unitedwepledge.org/v2v.

Salem - A RSQ Undercat - Cheryl M

Salem is a 12 year old domestic short hair cat. He was on an euthanasia list due to his age and health condition which had left him blind. RSQ rescued him from that shelter and provided much need veterinarian care and love. Salem had to have both eyes removed. His adopter was originally going to foster him once he was able to leave quarantine, but within a week, she called back and said it was going to be a permanent placement. They, like his medical care volunteers, had fallen in love with his spirit and resilience. He is thriving and living his best life now. Subaru's Loves Pets program helps RSQ continue its mission to be a voice for the voiceless, bettering the lives of animals in Utah's rural communities.

Moonbeam - A RSQ Underdog - Cheryl M

Moonbeam, who is a 10 year old Pomeranian/Chihuahua, and her mother had been abandoned on a walking trail in Southern Utah. When found, they were dehydrated and hungry. The hikers brought them to RSQ where they received medical care. Starlight and Moonbeam were inseparable. They stayed close to one another in the play yard and slept together in their kennel. Once stable, they were taken to the vet where they both required dental treatment. Moonbeam was diagnosed with a grade 5/5 dental disease and required removal of 15 teeth. Sadly, a pancreatic tumor was found in her mother Starlight and the vet could not save her. Moonbeam was missing his mom and depressed. He was fortunate to find a loving, caring adopter who helped ease his loneliness and give him a special loving home. Subaru's Loves Pets program helps RSQ continue its mission to be a voice for the voiceless, bettering the lives of animals in Utah's rural communities.

Findlay Subaru Raises over $125,000 - Karyn K

Representatives from the Findlay Subaru St. George presented the Washington County Sheriff's Search and Rescue a check for $30,711, representing the proceeds from their 10th annual charity golf tournament held in June. “This year the results were outstanding,” said Dave Gourley, general manager of Findlay Subaru. “They were double what we’ve done in any other year.” Washington Chief Deputy Nate Brooksby and Washington County Undersheriff James Standley accepted the check on behalf of the organization. “We want to thank Dave and Findlay Auto Group,” Brooksby said. “This is the 11th year, and as of last year, we totaled everything and you’ve donated about $125,000.”Brooksby said the donations help the organization, which is largely staffed by volunteers who buy much of their own equipment. Brooksby then presented Gourley with a framed letter. “It basically says that in the last 10 years, every search and rescue they (volunteers) have been on, you guys have played a part in that because of your donations and dedication. So we wanted to express our gratitude,” Brooksby said. The Washington County Sheriff Department Search and Rescue team is largely composed of volunteers who spend their time aiding and assisting the Washington County Sheriff Department in locating lost individuals. Washington County Sheriff’s Sgt. Darrell Cashin, the Sheriff’s Office liaison to the county search and rescue team, gave their annual report in January to the Washington County Commission and said the team had seen an all-time high number of calls in 2020. The total calls were 174 – an almost 40% increase from 2019 – and nearly 7,100 volunteer hours. Cashin previous told St. George News that hikers not being prepared for a venture into the wilderness is a common reason the county’s search and rescue team gets called out, adding that people don’t dress warmly enough in the cooler months or forget to take an adequate amount of water in the heat of the summer, among other failures in preparation.

One Customer's Journey - Charles N

Our customers Charles and Colleen Neault had a harrowing experience in September of 2020. Mr. Neault was kidnapped, assaulted, and horrifically wounded by two suspects. His attached excerpts from a letter sent to us outline his horrific experience. Findlay Subaru reached out to Mr. Neault and was able to trade him out of his car and into one of the same year, equipment, and miles, with no out of pocket expense on his part. Findlay Subaru--with the assistance of Subaru of America--absorbed a loss of over $3000.00. We are so happy to contribute to a happy ending for the Neaults and wish them the best of luck in the future.
