Barktoberfest with Friends For Life - Jennifer H

Through our partnership with Gillman Subaru Southwest, we hosted a Barktoberfest adoption event on October 22, 2022. We brought five adoptable pets to Gillman Subaru Southwest’s Houston location, and through the promotion related to this event and the event, Friends For Life and Gillman Subaru Southwest helped find 34 pets their perfect, loving homes in the month of October! Thanks to the entire team at Gillman Subaru Southwest, we were able to make connections to new members of the Houston community to share our resources that help pet owners keep their animals safe and healthy in their home. One of the big adoption stories this October for Friends For Life was of Feyre, who is a cat with “Manx Cat Syndrome.” Feyre requires help twice a day to go to the bathroom, since she can’t on her own, and started out life having some trouble walking. She’s now living happily in her forever home with the care of a loving forever family!

Gillman Subaru and Methodist Hospital Love to Care - Greg C

The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Houston chapter and Gillman Subaru Houston Southwest had the privilege of delivering blankets to Methodist Hospital in the world renowned Houston medical center as a part of the Subaru Loves to Care program. Together with LLS and hospital staff, Marketing Director, Jana Kusin, and General Manager, Eliel Ramirez, and the Subaru staff delivered warm blankets and arts and craft kits to the hospital for distribution to patients. It was clear how much this day means to Jana and Eliel who have both participated in the Loves to Care delivery day in years past. The highlight of the afternoon was taking photos in the lobby area of the oncology department and seeing smiling patients in the lobby area. Bringing meaning, hope, and purpose to cancer patients are inspiring moments that make all our work that much more special. Our LLS partnership with Subaru exists to bring warmth, love, and hope to cancer patients. Thank you to Jana, Eliel, and Gillman Subaru and Houston Methodist Hospital not only for an impactful and memorable day, but for supporting LLS’s mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Together, we are making a significant impact in the lives of cancer patients. Until there’s a cure…

Splash Finds Her Happy Ending - Jennifer H

Thanks to the ongoing support of our friends at Gillman Subaru Southwest, Friends For Life has been able to continue providing care, outreach, and resources to the most vulnerable populations in Houston—tail or no tail. Recently, this support helped Friends For Life find a home for a feisty, senior, tri-pawd cat who wouldn’t have had a chance anywhere else. Splash had a tough start in life. When Friends For Life got her, this senior girl had been kicked so hard that one of her legs had to be amputated. She, understandably, was slow to trust humans as she healed. But as her time with us went on, she grew more comfortable. She became a beloved office cat fixture we couldn’t imagine living without. That is until her perfect family came in. She’s here, holding onto her new mom, and living the life that she has always deserved.
