Smoke Alarms Save Lives - Carissa D

American Red Cross and community partner volunteers installed free smoke alarms in Moline’s Floreciente neighborhood. In addition to installing smoke alarms, volunteers provided fire safety information to residents. During this install day, 109 free smoke alarms were installed. McLaughlin Motors and the Subaru Share the Love program has been instrumental in supporting installation events to make the Quad City community a safer place to live.

Senior Pets are Young at Heart - Stacey T

When you think of McLaughlin Subaru you think of purchasing a car and exceptional service right? When we think about Mclaughlin Subaru we think about partnership, a commitment not only to us but to our entire community, and we think about sharing the LOVE! Oh and you cant forget about car buying and exceptional service too! Thank you to McLaughlin Subaru for joining the Quad City Animal Welfare Center to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals and people in our community! During our Subaru Loves Pets promotion and partnership, we adopted 86 adoptions in to forever homes. McLaughlin Subaru committed to donating $100 for every animal adopted (up to $3100.) Meet Shadow. Shadow came to us at the age of 20 when her owner unfortunately passed away. Shelter life can be stressful for any animal, but seniors often have the most difficult time adjusting so we knew we needed to make the transition as comfortable as possible for her. She was a bit on the shy side when we first met, and we loved seeing her come out of her shell while she was in our care. She is a sweet girl who liked being the center of attention, but only on her terms of course. Her age had made her a bit on the diva side. She was content with being a lap warmer and daydreaming while looking out the large windows! We quickly found that our sweet senior gal was suffering from hyperthyroidism, pancreatic issues, and early kidney disease. Finding a home for senior animals can be a challenge, and diagnosing multiple medical issues made finding her a forever home that much more difficult. Needing daily medications and monitoring can be a tough job. We are happy to say that Shadow was adopted during the Subaru Loves Pets promotion and will be able to live the rest of her life in a home surrounded by love and being spoiled every day. Partnerships save lives. Mclaughlin Subaru, thank you again for keeping the Subaru Loves Pets promise!

Dag gets adopted. Thank you McLaughlin Subaru! - Stacey T

Thank you to McLaughlin Subaru for joining the Quad City Animal Welfare Center to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals and people in our community! During our Subaru Loves Pets promotion and partnership, we adopted 86 adoptions in to forever homes. McLaughlin Subaru committed to donating $100 for every animal adopted (up to $3100.) All adoptions are special to us and we want to tell you about Dag! Dag came to us July of 2019, a scared and undersocialized dog, in dire need of behavior modification. We knew it would not be easy, however, we felt we needed to give this boy a chance. We are beyond thrilled to announce Dag was adopted on October 27th, 2022 during our Subaru Loves Pets promotion. Our team shed more than a few happy tears that day! The three years and three months Dag spent with us were filled with behavior modification, snuggles, yard zoomies, tennis ball chasing, and lounging in the dog pools! We all lovingly referred to him as Dude, Mister, Sweet Boy, and our favorite: Doodle Bug! He was picky with his treats and even pickier with his people, but once he decided he wanted you as a friend the rest was history. Thanks to McLaughlin Subaru and the QCAWC Team, Dag now has a place to call home. Since being adopted, his human mom says he settled in right away, as if he had been there his entire life. He has a GSD brother named Pickles who he loves and a new cat sister too! Mclaughlin Subaru thank you again for keeping the Subaru Loves Pets promise!

School supplies - Sara S

McLaughlin Subaru gifted our school, Fillmore Elementary, a giant box of school supplies. They donated expo dry erase markers, crayons, pencils, milkweed seeds for our butterfly garden, and even pop it's as an incentive to promote good behavior and leadership within our school. Their generosity helps teachers and staff to not have to spend out of their own pockets which can be a huge financial burden. All the teachers, students, and staff at Fillmore Elementary are lucky to have amazing donors like McLaughlin Subaru to support us so we can focus on our students.

Cora POSITIVELY Adoptable! - Stacey T

Cora came to the Quad City Animal Welfare Center June of 2021 from another shelter we were assisting with a hoarding situation. The 7 cats (and 2 kittens) had many many health issues. Cora tested FIV+ along with 3 other cats. She was very sick and often vomited blood. Cora needed diagnostics, medical care, prescription medication, and a special diet. Despite her medical condition Cora is such a sweet and playful girl! Cora, a Positively Adoptable Underdog, she prefers to be called an “Undercat” please, was adopted in October during the Subaru Loves Pets Event! Thank you to McLaughlin Subaru making a difference in the lives of homeless animals! We appreciate you!

Meet Henry!!! - Stacey T

Always put your best paw forward! That is exactly what a good Samaritan did when they found Henry the 1-year-old Beagle, wandering aimlessly down the wrong side of a 2-lane expressway. Upon arriving, the Quad City Animal Welfare Center Team realized Henry was in need of immediate medical care! He had several abrasions that looked all too similar to those left by being bound. The skin on all four of his legs were worn, and his muzzle seemed to have been taped shut. It was clear someone didn’t expect this underdog to beat the odds stacked against him. Immediate care was performed to get Henry the medical care he desperately needed! Henry was treated for his wound, given pain medication, antibiotics, and the attention he needed! After just a couple of weeks and LOTS of love, Henry found his furever home during the Subaru Loves Pets Event! Thank you to McLaughlin Subaru making a difference in the lives of homeless animals! We appreciate you!

You've Helped Make a Difference - Carissa D

We are incredibly grateful to McLaughlin Subaru and the Share the Love campaign for your ongoing support of the American Red Cross serving the Quad Cities & West Central Illinois. Your generosity has helped to install 10,641 free smoke alarms and educate more than 10,000 people on home fire safety. Funding from McLaughlin also helps the Red Cross provide temporary housing, meals, health and mental health services and financial assistance for local families and individuals impacted by home fires. This past year, a senior housing complex in East Moline, IL had a fire that displaced 14 seniors many with underlying health conditions. The fire happened during the holidays and the peak of COVID – thankfully no one was injured, and the seniors received hot meals, warm hotel rooms and lots of support and love from Red Cross volunteers over the two weeks they were displaced. Thank you to our friends at McLaughlin’s for sharing your generosity to help others in our community!

Trinity Cancer Center Blanket Delivery 2019 - Michelle M

On Monday, Aug. 5, 2019, The Leukemia Lymphoma Society’s Illinois Chapter and McLaughlin Subaru had the pleasure of delivering blankets to Unity Point's Trinity Cancer Center in Moline, IL as part of the Subaru Loves To Care program. These comforting gifts were accompanied by personalized messages of hope written by the customers and staff of McLaughlin Subaru. The incredible act of generosity was warmly received by Unity Point's Trinity Cancer Center staff who were excited and thankful to help distribute these comforting gifts to their patients! It was an extremely special day for a young girl, Libby Thulen, who was able to give back to others enduring treatment as she herself is fighting B-Cell Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). Libby was able to make a special connection with some of the other patients receiving treatment that day and she will forever be touched by the experience. Many thanks to McLaughlin Subaru and Unity Point's Trinity Cancer Center, not only for a memorable day, but for supporting LLS's mission to cure blood cancers and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.

Thank you, McLaughlin Subaru! - Susan W

We had a great visit with Genesis Cancer Center in Iowa! They are an outpatient facility, so we weren't able to visit with patients, but they were very grateful of the donation. They are going to distribute the blankets as patients come in for treatments and appointments. This photo includes our Subaru sponsor, doctor, nurses, techs, and other staff that were AMAZING to work with today! Thank you for supporting patients and families!
