Love Has No (Time) Limits - Andrea S

After 80 days in SPCA Monterey County’s loving care, senior dog Bear is now in his new, forever home. Bear came to SPCA Monterey County after being attacked by another dog. He had multiple wounds on his chest and upper leg, but even more concerning was his weight, lethargy, and depression. As our skilled veterinary team treated his wounds, we investigated his overall condition and quickly discovered he was suffering from severe hypothyroidism. “He was the saddest looking dog I have ever seen,” says Dr. Elneda Connors, SPCA Chief of Shelter Medicine. “He showed no interest in moving, eating, or interacting with us. But thanks to your support, we knew we could help him.” SPCA veterinarians started Bear on thyroid hormone supplementation, continually rechecking his blood levels and adjusting his medication as needed. Over several weeks, he became more alert, interested in people, and even started playing with toys. While in our care, he lost 30 lbs and became a new dog. “His transformation was truly amazing,” says Dr. Connors. “Bear blossomed into a happy, playful dog, a complete 180 from when he came to us. Thanks to your support, we knew we could help him.” And now he is snuggled with his new family. Your love made this possible. Thanks to supporters like Cypress Coast Subaru, we never put time limits on the adoptable pets in our care, and our TLC Program (Treatment, Learning, and Compassion) mends broken bones and heals broken spirits. Bear is thriving today thanks to your support. Many thanks to Cypress Coast Subaru for their support of SPCA Monterey County and the animals in our community.

Lifesaving Changes and Second Chances - Lidia W

Despite the many challenges we faced this year due to the pandemic and summer wildfires in our area, we never stopped caring for lost, abused, and neglected animals in our community. Like every sweet pup, all Lammy wanted was love — and snuggles. Lammy came to SPCA Monterey County with his fur incredibly matted, his toenails overgrown and his vision blocked by his unkempt coat. He barely looked like a dog and was suffering physically and emotionally from neglect. Thanks to compassionate supporters like you, Lammy was able to receive the specialized care and attention he needed in our Treatment, Learning, and Compassion (TLC) Program. Our veterinary team carefully shaved all of his fur which was infested with fleas and had numerous foxtails. We provided vet care, nourishing food, vaccinations, flea treatment, and regular medicated baths to soothe his irritated skin. Lammy was feeling better but his spirit still needed mending. He was incredibly fearful and would cower or run away when anyone approached him. With his health improving, Lammy’s care transitioned from our veterinary team to our behavior specialists who patiently worked with him for nearly a month to build his confidence. Initially, they would quietly sit with him and give him treats as he got used to their presence. As he started to come out of his shell, he began socializing with other dogs in playgroups. Soon, his spunky personality began to shine and he was happily wagging his tail whenever it was time for a walk. Now, all he needed was what he yearned for the most: a loving home. I am happy to share that Lammy is now happy, healthy, and spending the holidays in his new loving home. Again, thank you for making a difference. You provide lifesaving care and heartwarming transformations for animals in need. With your support, we have been able to keep families together with more than 60,000 pounds of free pet food distributed to pet owners through our Pet Food Bank. During this summer’s devastating wildfires, we rescued, evacuated, and sheltered more than 1,400 animals all thanks to you! ~SPCA Monterey County

Charlie's Story - Lidia W

Cypress Coast Subaru, Thank you for sponsoring our 2020 Share the Love Pet Telethon and virtual Wag n’ Walk events. Your support allows us to continue our mission during these crucial times. Our mission at the SPCA Monterey County is all about making animals well. When our work does more than that, we have a classic win-win situation. When Charlie came into our care with his littermates, it was immediately obvious something was wrong with him. While the other puppies rolled, played, and jumped, Charlie stayed back, his right front leg twisted and hanging limply. Charlie’s brothers and sisters were spayed, neutered and adopted quickly while Charlie underwent intricate surgery and weeks of care thanks to your compassionate support. “None of the bones from Charlie’s shoulder to his paw formed properly,” said Dr. Elneda Conners, SPCA Chief of Veterinary Staff. “He was unable to use or bear any weight on his leg, which stayed tucked up against his body. We didn’t know how those bones would grow as he aged, so we made the humane decision to amputate.” SPCA veterinarians performed the surgery, and by the next day, Charlie was acting like a fun-loving, silly puppy. Although Charlie was ready for rough and tumble play, his body needed time to recover and a busy shelter isn’t always the best option. Puppies thrive on early socialization, training, and care, so we asked our Ruff Start trainers to take him in during his recovery. The SPCA’s Ruff Start program pairs shelter dogs with inmates at Salinas Valley State Prison, where puppies like Charlie receive specialized training and care 24 hours a day. Carefully screened inmates receive so much more. “I’ve been locked up since I was 16,” says Charlie’s trainer Joshua. “I never had my own family. I never was in the role as a father. Ruff Start surprisingly shed a light on that for me: the responsibilities, the time, all that is needed and makes a family.” Joshua worked one-on-one with Charlie, giving him love and care. He potty trained Charlie, which proved to be quite a challenge, and taught Charlie to sit, stay, and heel. He also trained Charlie to roll over, which can be tricky with only three legs. This talent proved important, as it’s what delighted and charmed his adopter’s five-year-old daughter. “My father volunteers at the prison,” says Charlie’s adopter, Eddie Atilano. “He met Charlie there and told us how perfect Charlie was. Now Charlie sleeps in our bed. He loves his toys and runs up and down the stairs - he has no idea he doesn’t have four legs.” “It’s so great that the SPCA is helping the inmate community and bringing smiles to faces. Everyone at the prison keeps asking about Charlie, and my dad brings them pictures. You can tell they all care. We’re really thankful we found a dog who makes our family complete.” We are thankful as well. We’re thankful for our dedicated partners at Salinas Valley State prison. We’re thankful someone opened their home and heart to Charlie. And, we’re thankful for supporters like you, Cypress Coast Subaru, who make our special medical care and behavioral attention possible. We don’t have just a few dogs who need this special care. We often have more dogs and cats, horses, and small domestic animals with special needs that come into our care. The SPCA Monterey County is among a shrinking number of animal shelters across the country that doesn’t turn animals away and willingly accepts the most needy ones, knowing they will require weeks, even months of specialized work to be made whole again. We are only able to do this because of your support. When you think of how your Subaru Share the Love event helps our nonprofit organization, please think of Charlie’s care and full recovery. Think of the joy he’s given his new family, the pride felt by his trainer, and the comfort and love he’s feeling in his new home. Please also think of all the other shelter animals you have helped and the happiness and comfort you have brought with your generous donation. Thank you for enabling us to do this hard, life-saving work! SPCA Monterey County Team

Cypress Coast Subaru – Caring for the Community! - Teresa V

Maria Rodriquez visited the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (C.H.O.M.P) Montage Health's Mobile Clinic at the Dennis the Menace Park in Monterey for a care visit and was surprised when she was presented a gift of a blue and white checkered blanket wrapped in a bright red bow. The Mobile Clinic is accessible to all – reaching homeless individuals and students who otherwise may not have access to health care services. Cypress Coast Subaru and the Silicon Valley Monterey Bay Chapter of the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society (SVMB LLS) teamed up to deliver blankets and arts and crafts kits to patients and families at the Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP). The C.H.O.M.P. Montage Health leadership and care team expressed appreciation to Subaru and LLS. The Cypress Coast Subaru team underscored how important Subaru feels about giving back to the local community. We would like to express our thanks to Cypress Coast Subaru for stepping up again, to bring warmth and love, to Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula Montage Health in their quest to help their community.

Kona's Story - Lidia W

Thank you Cypress Coast Subaru for supporting The SPCA for Monterey County during the 2018 Subaru Share the Love Event. Your donation of $9,466.67 will continue to help care for more than 10,000 animals in need, not just dogs and cats, but horses, wildlife, exotics, and more; we appreciate it! Your support gave Kona the lifesaving medical care she needed and the ultimate happy ending of a loving home where she can spend her golden years. Our Humane Investigations Officers found Kona after receiving a tip from a concerned neighbor. Kona, a senior retriever mix, was living in the yard of a home in King City with no access to food or water. She’d been neglected for so long; you could see every bone in her weak body. Because of the severity of her neglect, officers immediately brought her back to the SPCA for Monterey County. Our veterinary exam showed that this sweet girl was nearly 20 pounds underweight, infested with fleas, and suffering from muscle wasting and pressure sores. She was placed on a specialized refeeding plan so she could gradually gain weight. She spent more than three months recovering under the compassionate care of our staff and volunteers. We were so happy as she returned to health and began to show energy and playfulness. With your help, she found the love, care, and second chance she deserves. Kona found a loving home with Rachel who saw her smiling face on our website. Rachel recently shared that every day Kona gets her morning walk, eats breakfast with her and her roommates and later goes to the dog park where she loves to chase her ball and meet other dogs and people. “Kona is the happiest dog ever now,” says Rachel. “She is my best buddy, my 60-pound lap dog. Every day I wake up I tell her ‘You are the best and I love you so much!’”Your generous support saves lives! Thank you Cypress Coast Subaru for making a difference for animals like Kona in our community.
