Subaru Loves to Care
Whether they live in our homes or in the wild, Subaru is committed to keeping all animals safe and healthy.
Loving the environment means more than loving the great outdoors. It means working to preserve it.
It’s our goal to make the pursuit of knowledge available to as many minds as possible.
In a perfect world, hunger would be history and hope would be commonplace. We believe a perfect world is possible.
We should all have a chance to lead a healthy life. We’re aiming to give as many people that chance as we can.
Our Love Promise can be seen in various partnerships with local charities and non-profits. We're grateful for the opportunity, not only to be a part of our community, but to serve it as well. We do this because it's the right thing to do.
Pause 4 Paws (P4P) supports 18 animal rescues and sanctuaries across Minnesota and to Puro Gato Rescue in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. P4P distributes funds to cover the cost of vaccinations, spay/neutering, emergency medical care and delivers donated dog and cat food directly to the rescues. P4P and their Beneficiary Organizations have saved over 25,000 dogs and cats and spayed or neutered nearly 17,000 animals. 100% of the funds distributed through P4P goes directly to the support and care of the animals. The donation from Morrie's Brooklyn Park Subaru allowed P4P to give one of our beneficiaries the funds to save Nippers, who had been abused and neglected in his previous home. Once we learned that P4P would cover his medical fees we took him in immediately. After a few days of settling into his new environment we removed Nippers leash outside in the yard and watched him shake and roll in the grass. I laid down on the grass with him and he rolled over for a belly rub, he relaxed and closed his eyes. When we were done relaxing I tickled his sides...his tail began to thump and he began to posture to play. I leaned down and whispered to him..."The best is yet to come boy, you are and will be loved." We walked back inside by one another without a collar and without a leash. I believe he knows he is safe and that he will never be harmed again. P4P is forever grateful to Morrie's Brooklyn Park Subaru for saving Nippers life.
On September 12, 2016, 100 golfers came together at Dellwood Country Club to participate in the 20th Annual BurnAid Golf Classic. Each year, nearly 2,000 individuals seek help through the Burn Center at Regions Hospital due to injuries from fires, frostbite, chemical burns and other related problems. Tournament proceeds allow the Burn Center at Regions to offer unique and far-reaching programs that support burn victims and their families as they recover and adjust to their new lives. BurnAid would not be successful without the support of our sponsors like Morrie's Brooklyn Park Subaru. The folks at Morrie's even went above and beyond their sponsorship and provided a car for us to use at our "Hole-in-One" hole. A huge thank you to Morrie's Brooklyn Park Subaru for being a Gold Sponsor of the 20th Annual BurnAid Golf Classic!
On June 29, LLS Ambassador Terri Oakes – wife of former University of Minnesota Gopher Baseball pitching coach Todd Oakes – and Erica Warlick, MD, Coach Oakes’ oncologist, accepted 120 blankets from Morrie’s Brooklyn Park Subaru on behalf of blood cancer patients currently being treated at the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Clinic. Coach Oakes lost his battle with acute myeloid leukemia on May 26, 2016, a tragic loss for the team, university and cancer advocacy community. The five-year survival rate for AML is 25 percent. To commemorate Coach Oakes’ legacy, UMN Gopher baseball Coach John Anderson and team members Ty McDevitt and Dan Motl hand delivered the blankets to Warlick and Terri Oakes. Morrie’s Brooklyn Park representatives Joe Seppa, Tina Ingalls, and Tom Frisch generously drove their donation to the cancer center and delivered care cards, which were written by customers to encourage patients. Oakes was a local LLS Board of Trustees member, fund-raised more than $175,000 for the mission, and very recently was announced as a national award-winning volunteer. Todd was loved by many and known for his ‘never-give-up’ attitude— many tears were shed during the blanket delivery by his family, friends, and doctor. But they all agreed this generous act from Morrie’s Brooklyn Park Subaru would have made Todd so happy. Giving back and taking care of others was what he was all about.
While it may have been a blustery, unseasonably cool Minnesota spring day on May 14, 2016, it was a GREAT day for the Special Olympics Minnesota Area 7 Track & Field meet...thanks to Morrie's Brooklyn Park Subaru who stepped up to sponsor this event! Over 400+ Special Olympics athletes, unified partners, and coaches gathered at the St. Michael-Albertville track and competed in a wide variety of events over the course of the day. As our athletes entered the complex, they were greeted by the enthusiastic and welcoming Morrie's staff who volunteered their day to be there in support of our athletes, handing out reusable tote bags, water bottles, sunglasses, and a crowd favorite - bubble wands! Also available for our athletes, compliments of Morrie's, was a healthy snack option. The day was a HUGE success and we can't thank Morrie's Brooklyn Park Subaru enough for their support - it truly meant so much to our athletes, coaches, families, and volunteers. Thanks so much for sponsoring this event and being a part of our winning team!
Basic Animal Rescue Training (BART) was established in 2004 by veterinarian Dr. Janet Olson in response to the tragic loss of a pet in a house fire in her community. The burning home belonged to a firefighter, and his 13-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer named Bart was trapped inside. The department was able to put out the fire and locate Bart, but he was unresponsive. The firefighters, including Dr. Olson's husband, did not have the knowledge or equipment to help Bart; and he succumbed to smoke inhalation. The entire fire department was deeply affected by this tragedy and felt helpless to save a family member of one of their own. Dr. Olson developed the BART program in honor and memory of Bart. BART's mission is to empower firefighters and other first responders to be prepared and equipped to address pets and livestock encountered in emergencies and disasters. BART serves to honor the human-animal bond and preserve human health, safety and well-being. Since 2004, more than 5000 first responders in Minnesota, Iowa and Oklahoma have been trained by BART Certified Instructors and equipped with the necessary medical/response equipment.

BART was established by veterinary cardiologist, Dr. Janet Olson in December 2004 in response to the tragic loss of a pet in a house fire in New Brighton, Minnesota. The burning home belonged to a firefighter and his 13-year-old German Shorthaired Pointer named Bart was trapped inside. The department was able to put out the fire and locate Bart, but by that time he was unresponsive. The firefighters, who included Dr. Olsons husband, did not have the training or equipment to help Bart and he died that day. The entire fire department was deeply affected by this tragedy, feeling helpless to assist one of their own. The BART program has been developed to honor the memory of Bart and is dedicated to empower fire fighters and other first responders to be prepared and equipped to address pets and livestock encountered in emergencies and disasters. BART serves to honor the human-animal bond and preserve human health, safety and well-being. Since its inception in 2004, over 5,000 first responders have been trained in Minnesota resulting in many saved lives, human and pets alike.
