It was an amazing day with Bob Moore Subaru's Dogapalooza event held October 7th, 2023! Bella SPCA was able to get 27 pets ready for adoption through the grant provided through Subaru & ASPCA. Bella SPCA was able to find forever homes for 10 of our pets during the event. A huge thank you to all involved, specifically Dylan West with Bob Moore Subaru. Dylan has worked with Bella SPCA for several years and we have created an amazing partnership with him through the support of Bob Moore Subaru. We would like to highlight the story of one of our pets that was adopted during the event. Meet Chevelle, a 2 year old black cat, she was found with a litter of kittens living in a garage that housed an old Chevelle car (hints the name), the kittens weren’t hers but she would climb through a window and bring back stray kittens from somewhere. The kittens were taken to the OKC Animal Shelter where they were adopted but Chevelle had major health issues and spent about 6 months at Bella SPCA’s Veterinary Hospital until she was deemed healthy enough for adoption. She suffers from severe allergies and has to be on a prescription diet for the rest of her life. She found her forever home at the Bob Moore Subaru Dogapalooza event (pic attached).
On July 12, 2023, Bob Moore Subaru partnered with Metro Professional Photographers Association, a local non-profit founded in 1985, to sponsor the 3rd annual Kids Photography Camp at Will Rogers Garden in Oklahoma City. Metro PPA’s mission is to welcome all who have an interest in the field of photography and provide them with the best networking and educational opportunities available. By holding the Kids Photography Camp, they make it possible for children to explore their passion for photography and the arts. Since the events inception in 2021, Bob Moore Subaru has donated over $9,120 to Metro PPA’s Kid’s Photography Camp, sponsored 13 students, and has contributed more than $3,300 in snacks, Boxed Water®, and photography props. To help make this year’s camp really special Bob Moore Subaru sponsored 6 of the 25 students. This was the largest attendance ever at camp, and thanks to sponsors like Bob Moore Subaru, each student was able to be paired with their own Camp Instructor! This allowed for a one-on-one learning experience. In Addition, two of the instructors were Bob Moore Subaru Ambassadors who donated their time to the class and shared their passion for photography and learning. Those Ambassadors not only led as Camp Instructors, but also helped gather materials from the retailer to supply the class. The adventure packed 7-hour Camp was made up of 9 different sessions: light painting, macro, miniature, “splash” stop-action, pet photos with 11 puppies, nature with a scavenger hunt, portraits, and composition. The miniature photo shoot session utilized more than 35 Subaru Impreza, Crosstrek, and Ascent diecast models graciously donated by Bob Moore Subaru. This was a hit with the kids and left them with a fun souvenir! When asked about their favorite part of the class, one of the students, Cohen, shared “my favorite part of kid’s camp was the puppy photography. I enjoyed it because I got awesome photos, and they were really cute and sweet.” Cohen’s parents later shared with us “the class really let him express his creativity, he came home saying he wished the class was a week long. We spent hours going through all the photos that he was proud to show us.” Having 9 different sessions allowed for each student to learn several aspects of photography categories as well as enhance their creativity. Metro PPA President, Jamie Cobb, said “I wanted to create something that allowed for creative expression which is how this came about.” Cobb goes on to say “our partnership with Bob Moore Subaru has grown every year and allowed for our classes to grow. Getting to see these kids thrive in creativity and share in my love of photography was truly rewarding.” This year a new element was added to the class which had the students submit their favorite image to be entered into a photo competition. Voting would take place on social media and the top 5 winners would then have their images showcased in Bob Moore Subaru’s showroom for all to see. In addition to showcasing those images the winners would also be given a $50 voucher towards any Subaru gear. All in all, this year’s Kids Photography Camp was a huge success. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to partner with a local organization that shares in the philosophy of continued learning and creativity outside the classroom! It really shows how Bob Moore Subaru is more than a car dealer and we can’t wait to work with them again next year!
Bob Moore Subaru and team donate blankets and 50 patient care kits to OU Children's Hospital. The team was gracious enough to also donate $2,500 to 25 blood cancer patients to be used for daily expenses.
The Autism Foundation of Oklahoma has launched a new state-wide outreach program, AFO on the Road. This initiative will allow us to visit communities all over Oklahoma and learn not only about the programs and resources available in these cities but also the areas in which they are lacking and how we can advocate for support in their communities. Visiting a new city each month, we sit down with the community and provide resources, swag bags, and a space to collaborate. This new program was made possible with Bob Moore Subaru’s sponsorship and continued support, and we’re honored to have this partnership. Thank you, Bob Moore Subaru!
Bob Moore Subaru and the team donated 500 pairs of socks to the City Rescue Mission for Subaru Loves to Help®.
Meals on Wheels of Norman has partnered with Bob Moore Subaru for our Share the Love event for over ten years. The Subaru Share the Love event is the annual poinsettia sale. The poinsettia sale, along with a Holiday Marketplace and assorted food trucks is the signature event of Meals on Wheels of Norman. It’s grown over the years and along with the sale of the plants, the community is asked to purchase a plant for each of our 300 clients. In total, about 2200 plants are sold. Nathan Baker and Jamie Cobb with Bob Moore Subaru delivered plants to some of our clients on December 1, 2022. It’s great fun for all involved! For many of our ill, disabled, and senior clients the poinsettia is the only gift they receive during the holiday season. One Meals on Wheels client Nathan and Jamie delivered to was Carolyn, who happened to be a former Board Member from the early years, a former volunteer driver, and a donor to our organization. Carolyn called the office to say thank you and added that she was so happy that Meals on Wheels was there for her when she needed us. She said she had no idea that she was paying it forward back then. Just like Nathan and Jamie from Bob Moore Subaru, Meals on Wheels of Norman believes in paying it forward. The Subaru Share the Love campaign has been paying it forward for over a decade! Meals on Wheels is truly grateful to Bob Moore Subaru and the Share the Love campaign.
Through our partnership with Bob Moore Subaru in Oklahoma City, we hosted Dogapalooza (an adoption and pet vendor event on the 8th of October). We brought nine pets to the event, and by the end of the event, Bella SPCA and Bob Moore Subaru helped seven find their perfect, loving home. Thanks to Jamie Cobb and Dylan West from Bob Moore Subaru, we were able to not only get these animals adopted but spread the word about how important adoption is and the need for adopters, fosters and volunteers within the community. Here are the seven stories of those adopted. HONEYCRISP, FOZZIE BEAR, SUGARBEE, PAZAZZ, BOOM, SQUIRT Bella pulled Honeycrisp from a rural shelter in Oklahoma with her four, 4-week old babies. They were in danger of being euthanized due to the rural shelter being so small. We got them to our rescue and learned that Honeycrisp has the cutest underbite we'd ever seen and was the sweetest girl. After about three weeks at our rescue center, it was time that her babies go a foster and Honeycrisp be fully vetted and spayed. She adjusted great to her babies being gone and her cute personality really came through once she landed in her foster home. She was wonderful with the other dogs and the child in her foster home, so we knew someone was going to be super lucky to adopt her and that perfect person came along at the Subaru event. Fozzie Bear found his way to Bella when his owner could no longer afford him due to loss of job and home. His owner wanted nothing more than for Fozzie to find the home he deserved, and he knew that wasn't with him anymore. We know it's a hard decision to make and we don't take it lightly. We got Fozzie straight to a foster home, to make his transition a little easier from losing his human. His foster said he was confused but was a sweet boy and knew that whoever adopted him was getting a great boy. His adopter saw him on our social media posts of the event and just knew she had found the missing piece of their family! Pazazz and Sugarbee are brother/sister, we assume. They were part of eight that were found split between two crates on the side of the road in a very rural part of Oklahoma. It was four puppies and four adults. The puppies seemed to warm up quickly to humans, but the adults were very skittish (as of now, we actually still have two adults that are just now allowing human touch, thanks to their amazing foster.) We know nothing about who dumped them or what their life was like before some nice people found them, but we made it our mission to show them that humans aren't bad and make sure they knew nothing but love from here on. After a few weeks at our center and being fully vetted, it was time for their first adoption event. Sugarbee and Pizzazz were nervous but super friendly in their crate at the event and a sweet couple spotted them and knew they had to adopt them, TOGETHER! It's more than we could have ever wanted for these two, after being dumped like trash. Boom, oh sweet Boom! Boom is one of three puppies that showed up on one of our foster's land in Guthrie, Oklahoma. They were dirty, skinny and scared. She took them in, got them bathed and some food in their bellies. And we found fosters for all three. They were found right around July 4th, so they were named Boom, Firecracker and July. While Firecracker and July found their homes rather quickly, Boom wasn't getting any interest. He was thriving in his foster home and they adored him but were just as confused why no one was interested in adopting him. He had been to several adoption events and was always overlooked. As you can imagine, adoption events can be very stressful for the dogs and we had discussed having Boom sit out the Dogapalozza but his foster said, no it's ok, this is a smaller event and he doesn't have to be crated. So she brought him and his perfect family walked into that dealership and it was the most wonderful thing! Boom knew that was his family and they knew he was exactly what they were missing. He is living his best life now! Last but certainly not least, is our sweet Squirt! Squirt's story is a hard one for us but we are beyond honored to be part of his story. Squirt was surrendered to Bella, along with 15+ other chihuahua/dachshund mixes. The owner had become ill and overwhelmed with caring for all the dogs. All the dogs were living in one room, no access to outside but were being fed and given water. The owner reached out for help and Bella and another Oklahoma rescue jumped into action, Bella took 13 and the smaller rescue took the rest. Once we got them to our adoption center and cleaned up, we learned these were the sweetest, most loving little dogs. You can tell the owner cared for them very much and showed them love, until they became overwhelmed. The perfect family for Squirt came to Subaru that day and now he has his own little girl to play with!
On October 8, 2022, Bob Moore Subaru partnered with Bella SPCA - a local pet shelter and rescue, to host their 9th annual Dogapalooza event since 2013. Since the inception of the event, Bob Moore Subaru has donated more than $75,600 to local pet shelters, aided in the adoption of more than 350 pets, and have had over 150 small business owners participate in the event with nearly $62,200 being contributed to those vendors. However, this year’s Dogapalooza stood out. Prior to the event, Bob Moore Subaru and the team spent countless hours planning to ensure this year’s Dogapalooza was a success. We worked with our media partner (KFOR News 4) to promote and solicit the event. KFOR News 4 as well as our print publications and promotions helped attract over 200+ people and 100+ pets to the event! In addition to advertising, Bob Moore Subaru and 15 of our staff members donated several hours of their time to assemble 150 gift bags to give away at the event. The gift bags were pet and owner focused – they included a cinch bag, sport water bottle, and a pet water bowl – the gifts were a hit! On the day of the event, Bob Moore Subaru and the partners shined. 16 small businesses who specialize in pet friendly products or services showed up to the event. One of them, a local veterinary office, 405 Vet, provided free microchipping to 23 animals and complimentary goodies for all pets – attendees were grateful to have this as an opportunity. To complement the efforts of our partners, Bob Moore Subaru had four of our own ambassadors donate their time to work the event. Those ambassadors made sure the event went smoothly – they checked in attendees, promoted the raffles and contest, passed out over $1,600 in Subaru swag, and gave each person a Subaru Loves Pets kit. On top of the swag and commitment from our team, the event led to seven on-site adoptions. One of those adoptions included Ziti – a dog that was surrendered to Bella SPCA and was having the toughest time getting adopted. She had been in the shelter for 204 days total! Luckily, Ziti found a loving owner at the event and was able to go home with two of her shelter mates. All in all, this year’s Dogapalooza was a huge success. We are so grateful to have the opportunity to partner with so many different businesses to support a Subaru initiative and can’t wait to do it again next year. Thank you to all our partners, the 16 pet focused businesses and the 27+ volunteers who helped make this happen! Below are some additional comments and details from the event: More about Ziti - Ziti came to Bella SPCA as an owner surrender. Because she’d spent most of her time confined at the shelter, she was always hyper at the adoption events and didn’t get much interest from anyone. Ronda Walzer, a board member of Bella, made the decision to foster Ziti in hopes to help train her. Walzer said “We have three of our own [dogs] which was a challenge getting her acclimated.” Walzer goes on to say, “Once we worked with her and got her in a foster home, she was a great dog!”. With the efforts of her foster and focus of the event, Ziti found a forever home. But Ziti didn’t go home alone—two other dogs, Pazazz and Sugarbee, were also adopted by the same family! We couldn’t have been more excited for these three “shelter mates” to find such a loving and caring family. Comments from Participants - Kim West, owner of Ms. Kim’s Dog Barkery & Boutique, shared “When I purchased my first Subaru Legacy from Bob Moore, I learned about the event and asked if I could participate having just started my small business. Here we are three years later and it’s my favorite event and has helped me grow my network with how many people attend. This was the most business I’d had at a set-up and it’s all thanks to Bob Moore Subaru’s generosity and help with small business owners like me.”

No Boundaries International is an Oklahoma City-based non-profit that has been actively involved with the community for 15+ years. With the help of trauma therapist and NBI founder, Dr. Lori Basey, NBI has helped train hundreds of people in a specialized trauma-informed program developed by Dr. Basey. NBI has become well known for actively fighting the trauma of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. Whether it be for at-risk children, homeless individuals, or those struggling with addiction and brokenness, the NBI team provides the expertise they’ve acquired to help where needed most not just locally, but internationally as well. To reach those in need at a street level and provide realistic solutions, outreach is the strongest form of involvement where reliable transportation is crucial in spreading their love, help, and faith. That’s why when Bob Moore Subaru learned of their current transport, they were quick to respond in donating a 2021 Subaru Outback! After an emotional delivery to the No Boundaries station, “Olive”, as the Outback is now known, has helped the team in serving 4,065 people and counting since Bob Moore Subaru’s involvement. This has strengthened the outreach with special operations, providing assistance for the homeless, enhancing their involvement in the streets, aiding in transport of vital necessities, and even providing the opportunity to help a victim of human trafficking in Tulsa, OK. Without reliable transportation these opportunities would be far more restricted. Olive’s driver Outreach Coordinator Michelle Fowler has passed out food for those in the streets as well as transport people where care is needed. In tandem with their food truck Olive has doubled the potential in feeding those without a meal further solidifying the need for reliable transport. Bob Moore Subaru is proud to be in partnership with this team and assisting in their mission to Restore, Train, & Deploy.

Thank you to Bob Moore Subaru for helping The Underdogs Rescue with 11 adoptions for the month of October. We kicked off our event with Dogapalooza. The event was a huge success. All of the press, pictures and word mouth made it possible to find these Underdogs loving homes. All of the dogs adopted were discarded strays in poor and starving conditions. They required frequent vet appointments in order to get them ready for a happily ever after. Thank you to Subaru and the public’s support.

The Oklahoma Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) was thrilled to partner with Bob Moore Subaru for the third consecutive year for their Subaru Loves to Care program. Bob Moore Subaru chose to spread love, hope and warmth to pediatric cancer patients at the Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center - Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders by delivering warm blankets, arts & craft kits and "message of hope" cards to the patients and their families. Charles Davis, General Manager of Bob Moore Subaru and his wife, Lisa Davis, LLS Oklahoma 2019 Woman of the Year truly do “Love to Care”. The Davis’s led the charge for the third year to spread love and hope to children battling cancer knowing that small comforts make a big difference. This delivery had special significance to the Davis family as they lost their 7 year old daughter, Mighty Mia, to Lymphoma in 2017. “I was honored to be able to deliver a little comfort to children and their families at the Children’s Hospital at OU – Jimmy Everest Center. Thank you LLS Oklahoma and Bob Moore Subaru,” said Lisa Davis – LLS Oklahoma 2019 Woman of the Year. This year Bob Moore Subaru partnered with Connor Lloyd, who is the LLS Oklahoma 2019 Boy of the Year and a young boy of action who refuses to let cancer slow him down. Connor Lloyd and his father Neil met Lisa and Charles Davis and the Bob Moore Subaru team as well as the LLS Oklahoma staff and volunteers for the Loves to Care delivery. Connor helped to rally the team to assist in spreading the love at Children’s Hospital where he was treated. Connor was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia just weeks after his 3rd Birthday in December of 2017. Connor is currently in the maintenance phase of his Leukemia treatment which will continue through 2021. He has done so well in treatment that the Doctors have released him to normal childhood life again– allowing Connor to go back to school and resume doing all the things he loves. “Subaru of America and Bob Moore Subaru have helped us to reach far more children who are battling blood cancer than ever before. The awareness and hope that the Subaru hospital deliveries bring to families are a bright light in a dark time. We are so thankful for this opportunity to support patients in a unique way” Kacy Lowe,Executive Director of the Oklahoma Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. Bob Moore Subaru & Subaru of America have had a major impact on the Oklahoma Chapter of The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. In 2019, Bob Moore Subaru was the Presenting Sponsor of the 2019 Oklahoma Man & Woman of the Year Campaign and also have provided a 2019 Subaru Outback for the entire staff of LLS Oklahoma to utilize in their work to fulfill the mission to cure leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin's disease and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families. Beating Cancer Is In Our Blood - Together We Are Unstoppable!
The OK Freewheel's vision is simple: through bicycling, connect Oklahoma’s unique peoples, cultures, communities, and landscapes. We celebrate a happy, healthy, safe and sustainable Oklahoma. We have always felt like that another way to say that is: Share the Love.. making this partnership with Bob Moore Subaru something we could not be more excited about! The Freewheel Ride Ambassadors and the Oklahoma FreeWheel SAG program are powered by Subaru. Our Ambassador riders are a group of like minded folks that want to promote bicycling in OK. They show up to ride across the state and help promote the Freewheel - a cross state, 400+ mile, 7 day bicycle tour that happens each June and also our weekend festival, Fandango, that happens in October. They also give tips, tricks, and companionship to riders in their local areas and work hard to promote the outdoors, safe riding, adventure, and stoke! Our SAG Support (powered by Subaru) also provide full support to the 400+ riders on this bicycle tour each June -- providing rides when needed, mechanical assistance, visibility on the roads during the ride, water and food stops, and whatever else these riders need. This is vital and something that now has even better wings thanks to the partnership with Bob Moore Subaru. In short - we want to see people getting out to crush something they never thought possible. For some, that might mean doing a 40 or 60 mile ride. For others, that could be completing their first Century (100mile) ride. Maybe it is someone's first bicycle tour. No matter what the goal - we want to help them get there with a HUGE smile on their face. We couldn't think of a better partner to help our cycling friends get out there and make it happen. Our stories are similar. What better support that a company that wants to take you places you've never been? Look for us on the roads this June as we ride from Hugo, OK to Sedan, KS and keep an eye out for those Bob Moore Subaru's helping along the way. Get out there. Smile. Do something that seems impossible. Bob Moore Subaru believes in this mission and has stepped up huge for us to help provide the place and support to bicycle riders across the state and country to hit their goals on the bicycle. Through this partnership, we know we can make progress towards a safer, more healthy, Oklahoma!
Every single day we are picking up dogs and trying to find transportation to get the dogs where they need to be. With the help of Bob Moore Subaru providing a vehicle, we have been able to transport countless dogs to and from their vet appts, adoption events, and most importantly the shelter to save their lives! We would not be able to do this without our community partner and the animals are eternally grateful.

We were so honored to be selected as the local charity partner of the 2018 "Share The Love" event with Bob Moore Subaru. When we were presented with the award check at our 2019 Night of Dreams Gala event, we were blown away to receive $30,464.00 to go toward our programs. So many lives are impacted on a daily basis through our programs that for every $1 donated, we are able to put $7 of restoration back into our community. In 2018, we served 11,324 free meals to kids and teens (over 940 meals per month) and had over 9,000 kids participated in our summer and after-school programs. Partnerships with organizations like Bob Moore Subaru help make the daily impact of our programs possible and change people's lives like Maeisha's story. Like many youth and young kids, Maeisha was first served by the programs of the OKC Dream Center when her mother and her were invited to Inner City Church and their weekly services by a family friend. They quickly got involved and volunteered often. Around age 15, Maeisha’s mom became ill and hospitalized during her freshman year in high school. Maeisha had to grow up fast at this stage of life in order to take care of her mom and help pay bills, get food and household items each month while staying caught up with school. At school, she was bullied and soon turned to cut try to cope but realized that her mom needed her and that she was more than what the kids at school thought of her. Maeisha and her mom were able to get help through the programs at the OKC Dream Center by showing them love and helping with food, clothes, and other assistance even today as they need it. Maeisha continues booking her mom’s doctor appointments and transportation, administering medication, and other things while continuing school and volunteering at the OKC Dream Center. Maeisha is scheduled to graduate this year from high school and continue in her education. At the OKC Dream Center, Maeisha soon discovered that she and her mom had finally found a place that will always do what they can to help fill a need. Maeisha discovered a place where she could find comfort in the Lord whenever she feels unloved, unimportant, or insecure. She discovered healing from the pain of her past.She discovered joy in her heart. And most importantly, she discovered unconditional love. Through the food, clothing, and community resources she found at the OKC Dream Center, she’s learned a truth that many of us take for granted: There is always hope. Maeisha loves volunteering with our summer and after school programs through helping cook meals and developing and fostering positive relationships with the kids and younger youth that come to the OKC Dream Center. In life, circumstances can change and impact our lives in an instant, and the enemy never sleeps. Your partnership helps us to meet people at their place of need every day in spite of any circumstances. Because of friends like you, we can provide a constant light in the darkest time of someone’s life. If you’re someone who is looking to get more involved with the Dream Center and volunteer your time, you can also email us at [email protected] #MakingADifference #DCLovesOKC
In 2018, Bob Moore Subaru partnered with the Oklahoma City Zoo to provide two new vehicles for the Zoo’s educational outreach program, helping to bring the message of animal conservation to rural and underserved communities across Oklahoma. The new ZOObarus replaced 12-year-old vehicles with over 100,000 miles. Thanks to Bob Moore Subaru’s generous, continuing sponsorship of the program, the OKC Zoo is able to transport educators and animal ambassadors all over the state. Animal ambassadors are essential to building appreciation for wildlife conservation in the Zoo’s education programs. A variety of animals appear as educational animal ambassadors: small to medium mammals, birds, snakes, geckos, tortoises, frogs and more. In addition to sponsoring the ZOObaru outreach program, Bob Moore Subaru has supported the OKC Zoo’s conservation initiatives by sponsoring a number of conservation fundraising events and animal awareness days in 2018 and 2019. From everyone at the Oklahoma City Zoo, thank you Bob Moore Subaru for helping us to connect people with wildlife and wild places!
Pedals for Paws and Silent Auction was a fundraiser created to raise much-needed funds for 2 local dog rescues, The Underdogs Rescue and Prima Pit Bull Rescue. The 2 rescues teamed up to raise money to not only assist in the daily expenses of saving and caring for animals but for the common goal of building sanctuaries. Building a sanctuary is not an inexpensive project, but will help both rescues save more of Oklahoma's unwanted pets by providing more space for the animals to live until they find their forever homes. Knowing Bob Moore Subaru supports the community and especially loves dogs, we reached out for potential support. We were beyond thrilled when Bob Moore Subaru generously agreed to match our fundraising efforts dollar for dollar up to $4,000! The fundraiser started with a benefit indoor cycle class at CYCLEBAR. It was a fun, high energy class full of fellow dog lovers! Immediately after the ride, we kicked off an online auction that ran for one week. We had 23 baskets that we auctioned off thanks to generous donors around the OKC area. We raised a combined total of $4179.48! We are thrilled with the outcome of this fundraiser and BEYOND THANKFUL for Bob Moore Subaru for stepping up and almost DOUBLING what was raised! 100 percent of the money raised will directly help Oklahoma's homeless pets and allow us to make a bigger difference in the rescue community! I am still in awe of Bob Moore Subaru's generosity and willingness to help and make this fundraiser the success story it was. THANK YOU BOB MOORE SUBARU FROM THE BOTTOM OF OUR HEARTS AND A MILLION TIMES OVER! Your friends at The Underdogs and Prima Pit Bull Rescue
Bob Moore Subaru presents National Dog Day was held at the OKC Zoo, Sunday, August 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. National Dog Day gives us cause to celebrate all breeds of dogs and recognize the number of dogs in need of permanent homes. Representatives from the Bella SPCA were in attendance from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. hosting an adoption event in the Zoo’s entry plaza. A couple of pups found their new forever families! (see Lilly shown with her new family in the photo) Additional event activities included: • Free Subaru dog bandanas courtesy of Bob Moore Subaru for the first 1,000 guests that visit.• Many kids participated in the Zoo’s free Eye Spy Safari for a chance to win free Subaru Sunglasses, courtesy of Bob Moore Subaru. • Special Keeper Connection education opportunity was held at the Zoo’s African Painted Dog habitat, where guests learned more about our endangered dogs from the animal experts entrusted to care for them. Subaru owners were able to leave their pups in the Zoo’s pet hotel for free on National Dog Day thanks to Bob Moore Subaru as well. It was a great day for all!
The Subaru Loves to Care Month was a special and very personal campaign for the staff at Bob Moore Subaru of Oklahoma City. On Monday, July 9th, Charles Davis, General Manager and his wife Lisa Davis who oversees marketing for the dealership, delivered Subaru blankets, bags, and care cards to Children’s Hospital at OU Medical Center – Jimmy Everest Center for Cancer & Blood Disorders in Children. This delivery had special significance to the Davis family as they lost their 7 year old daughter, Mia, to lymphoma just last August. “The mission of LLS is important not only to Bob Moore Subaru because of our Share the Love Program, but it’s very personal for us as we lost our 7 year old daughter, Mighty Mia, to lymphoma last summer. In addition, our Master Technician, Shawn Best, lost his daughter, Kristin, to cancer as well at age 18. We hope that this partnership helps carry the message of LLS to more families like ours," said Charles Davis. Mia was adopted by their family after she was left in the NICU at an Oklahoma City hospital when she was 2 days old. After overcoming a heart transplant and a number of other health challenges and special needs, Mia was diagnosed with lymphoma on May 17th, 2017. Mighty Mia fought hard for her life, but succumbed to the cancer just three short months later on August 17th, 2017. The Bob Moore Subaru team and the Oklahoma Chapter of the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), delivered 80 blankets and bags with messages of hope written by Subaru customers, and LLS care cards to those children fighting cancer. The team at Bob Moore Subaru decided to utilize the blankets not only with the kids at OU Children’s Hospital, but with their four-legged friend too! The patients and staff did the latest viral challenge, “What the Fluff,” with Targa the therapy dog at OU Children's Hospital. Afterwards, Targa was tired from her challenge, so 4-year-old Grace and her sister tucked Targa in for a nap with a Subaru blanket and read her a story! Grace was diagnosed with Acute Lymphocytic Lymphoma in January. She and her family live in the panhandle of Oklahoma and have to travel more than four hours each way to treatment. She was one of a number of children who enjoyed their day with Subaru and LLS. The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society funds research and provides support to patients battling blood cancers today. Over the past 65 years, LLS has invested more than $1 billion to advance innovative therapies and save lives. Across the state of Oklahoma, a large number of patients find themselves faced with the choice between paying for their treatment and supporting their family. Aside from the costs of hospital care, co-pays, and other out-of-pocket expenses, there are unforeseen costs associated with treatment. The Oklahoma Chapter of LLS, through the generosity of partners like the Bob Moore Subaru, gave over $500,000 in financial assistance last year to Oklahomans.

The Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden is celebrating World Tiger Day, presented by Bob Moore Subaru, Sunday, July 29, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cat Forest habitat. In addition to learning about one of the world's most magnificent species, Zoo guests can enjoy fun, free, educational activities and celebrate the first birthdays of tiger cubs Zoya, Ramah, Gusti and Eko! The World Wildlife Fund created World Tiger Day in 2010 with a goal to double the number of wild tigers by the year 2022. Informative displays, crafts and other activities will be on-site at the Cat Forest habitat, plus, a digital photo booth courtesy of Bob Moore Subaru will allow families and friends the opportunity to capture the moment and share their passion for conservation on social media. Snapchat users can access a special World Tiger Day filter that’s available at the Zoo and Bob Moore Subaru on Sunday, July 29. Lancer Hospitality, the OKC Zoo’s food and beverage partner, is providing free ice cream to those in attendance (limited quantity available). Breyers, the ice cream producer, uses sustainable palm oil practices in their manufacturing process, protecting critical tiger and orangutan habitats.“World Tiger Day is about celebrating these icons of nature and raising awareness about what we can do to ensure they continue to thrive,” said Tyler Boyd, curator of carnivores and hoofstock. “Facing threats from habitat loss and illegal hunting, it’s critical to the future of the species that we act now.” To celebrate the cubs’ birthday, they will be presented special enrichment items at 10:15 a.m. in their outdoor habitat area at Cat Forest. Caretakers are preparing some of their favorite treats and packaging them in festive boxes to create fun, engaging activities for the animals.Also on World Tiger Day, guests driving Subaru vehicles will receive complementary valet parking courtesy of Bob Moore Subaru. Valet parking for other vehicles is $7. Bob Moore Subaru will be celebrating World Tiger Day at their dealership by giving away a pair of Zoo day passes to the first 10 individuals who test drive a Subaru and post a World Tiger Day selfie with the photobooth!Last summer, the Zoo received Zoya, a female Amur tiger cub born at Philadelphia Zoo, and integrated the cub with a litter of three Sumatran tiger cubs born here two weeks prior after Zoya’s mother was not demonstrating maternal behaviors. This process, called cross-fostering, is rare with tigers, with only a few cases having ever been attempted and documented. Both Amur tigers and Sumatran tigers are endangered in the wild. Fewer than 500 Sumatran tigers may survive on that Indonesian island. Amur tigers, also called Siberian tigers, are found in far eastern Russia, with a few surviving in northeastern China. Sustained conservation efforts have resulted in recovery from near extinction for the Amur tiger. Fewer than 50 were thought to survive in the 1930s and 1940s, but the population has grown to about 500 today. Although Amur tigers have increased in the wild, tigers overall continue to be under tremendous threat. There are thought to be fewer than 4,000 total tigers surviving across their entire range in southeast Asia, Sumatra, China and Russia. The primary threat to tigers is poaching for their skins, bones and other body parts that are used in traditional Asian medicine. Habitat loss and depletion of prey species is also a threat in many areas.In 2016 the Zoo began a partnership with Rainforest Trust, a conservation organization whose mission is to work with local partners to purchase and protect threatened tropical forests. Using funds donated by guests through the Zoo’s grassroots program, Round Up for Conservation, Rainforest Trust purchased 13,000 acres of rainforest in central Sumatra, an area five times the size of Oklahoma City’s Lake Hefner. This lowland forest is rich in biodiversity and is now designated as a protected area, safe from conversion to palm oil plantations and logging. The area is patrolled to prevent illegal activities such as poaching. In addition to Sumatran tigers, it’s home to some of the Zoo’s most popular and endangered species including Asian elephants and Sumatran orangutans.Show your stripes for conservation during World Tiger Day! Located at the crossroads of I-44 and I-35, the Oklahoma City Zoo is an Adventure Road partner and a member of Oklahoma City’s Adventure District. The Zoo proudly holds accreditations from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums, and the American Association of Museums. Guests are welcome daily from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. with exhibit buildings closing at 4:45 p.m.
Education is in our nature! We’d like to extend a sincere thank you to our friends at Bob Moore Subaru for their generous donation to our education program with the addition of two ZOObarus, revealed this summer!The ZOObarus have enabled the OKC Zoo's education team to transport our animal ambassadors and educate children all over the state about wildlife and wild places!
I am an Oklahoma Teacher and am so thankful for the caring team at Bob Moore Subaru who went above and beyond when they heard about my vehicle being vandalized by a student. My husband, a National Guardsman, and a Subie Owner, was deployed at the time and so I had to figure out what to do and how to get my car repaired, my kids home and something for me to drive on my own. Thankfully, Bob Moore Subaru picked us up after the car rental company required additional fees that would have put us in a bind. They put us in a beautiful Forester to drive until my vehicle was repaired and helped coordinate with the tow company, glass repair, and insurance. A few days later, we picked up my vehicle with its new beautiful window and only two miles down the road toward home, my car jerks badly, a wrench appears on the display, and it will no longer accelerate. Luckily, we were able to get it parked in a nearby parking lot instead of being stranded on Kelly near 15th during 5:00 traffic. You won't believe it, but Bob Moore Subaru comes to the rescue again! They sent out a car and a mechanic. The mechanic ran a diagnostic test then decided to drive it himself and see what it’s doing. When we arrived at the lot, they immediately put the kids and I back in a loaner vehicle again (a gorgeous Outback this time), and my vehicle spent a few more days with them while they check things out. I'm so thankful for the kindness and service we were shown at Bob Moore Subaru and will definitely be returning and recommending them to all our friends and family!
