Two Kittens Find Home Together - Mandi K

Through our partnership with RK Subaru, we hosted an adoption promotion during the month of October. By the end of the promotion, the Virginia Beach SPCA and RK Subaru helped 85 pets find their forever homes. That includes animals like Mimmy and Pompompurin. These two kittens arrived at the VBSPCA at just a month old. They were placed into a foster home until they were healthy and strong enough for adoption. The adorable pair was finally ready for their second chance just as our Subaru Loves Pets Adoption Promotion kicked off in mid-October. The siblings loved playing together in their colony, and it didn't take long for them to catch the eye of a family who was looking for a new pet. Thanks to this promotion, Mimmy and Pompompurin were adopted together and get to live life side by side in a loving home.

Barktoberfest 2022 - NICK W

RK Subaru teamed up with Buck's Dog Training and Leave No Trace to host Barktoberfest 2022! The event was a great success with dozens of dog owners showing up with their pups. Buck's Dog Training did a training demonstration and pizza was served. Inside the showroom was a Leave No Trace display stand with Virginia State Advocate David Lauthers there for questions.

RK Subaru staff took some time Sunday June 26th to clean up trash at the Virginia Beach oceanfront. The event was a huge success as the weather was perfect and the turnout was great.

Car and a Keychain for my Goldendoodle! - KAYLA R

Leah Graham had sold me a 2022 Subaru Crosstrek. I was in a financially bad situation with my prior car and she really pulled me out and gave me a better deal with an even better car. She took her time and did not pressure me into anything and provided a ton of information and options. Very knowledgeable and made sure I did not leave that dealership until I was satisfied. I would highly recommend Leah Graham to be your next sales agent. Not to mention when you buy a car from her you get a cool keychain that matches your personality, hints my golden doodle keychain! The whole dealership was also very accepting and welcoming to my young puppy, Koda. You won't regret it! Thank you!

Great experience - WILLIAM R

I can’t say enough positive things about my experience at RK Subaru. After a terrible experience at another dealership, I was so skeptical how this would end. With that said, Cal and the team at RK, made this the best car buying experience I’ve had to date. From the initial conversation to the financing, it was easy and painless. I’ll be honest, I was waiting for something to happen during the process, and it wasn’t until my drive home to North Carolina, in my new 22 Legacy XT, that I realized that “wow this really happened that easily”. I will definitely be visiting in the future for my next vehicle.

Great experience

Above and beyond - JOHN D

Good evening Mr. Wilson, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank the RK team for remembering my birthday! I don't think I have to tell you what a great asset Cal Green is to your Subaru dealership. Before I purchased my Subaru when the Covid Pandemic was in it's the early stage that I had stopped in to get some information on the 2020 Outback and Cal took me through all of the various features from bumper to bumper and inside and outside! He was very well versed in everything about the Outback. I called him to thank him for remembering my birthday and in the call, he asked how my Outback was and I mentioned that Starlink had gone out and I wasn't able to get it operating again. He suggested that I stop by and he'd see if he couldn't get it operational again. I had talked with the Subaru Advocacy tech support folks and they had communicated with me several times but hadn't been able to get it operating. I stopped by while I was out running a couple of errands and in almost no time at all he had it working again! I have been impressed with Cal from my first time meeting him and greatly appreciate knowing that he is there for me and he is an outstanding ambassador for Subaru and RK Subaru! Sincerely, John D.

Texas Underdog Gets a New Start in Virginia - Emily P

O'Ryan came to the Virginia Beach SPCA all the way from Texas. He was found as a stray and never claimed, so he was transferred along with dozens of other dogs to the VBSPCA for a better shot at finding a forever home. O'Ryan not only needed a second chance, he needed surgery for a painful hip injury. For months O'Ryan waited at our shelter and was overlooked due to the extensive medical costs that would need to be paid in addition to his adoption fee. Thanks to the Subaru Make a Dog's Day Grant, O'Ryan's adoption dreams finally came true on October 28, four long months after he arrived at our shelter.

Thank you RK Subaru! - NICK W

RK Subaru recently made a generous donation to Lynnhaven Elementary. The donation allowed the school to purchase paint, clay, and paper for the art department and they are excited to get creating! Thank you again.

Our underdogs - MEREDITH B

I recently saw an advertisement about Subaru bringing attention to the "underdogs." These dogs have injuries or something that happened to them that potentially damages their chance to be adopted. My boyfriend works for a Subaru dealership and I thought it would be fitting to write something about our two dogs, both rescues, one of which lost a leg from a car accident. Just thought it was cool to know we embody the Subaru belief 100%. Pinky and Tyler even have dog tags that were made from the machine they have in the showroom!

Subaru meet and greet - Nick W

Subaru Steve and Anthony V at RK Subaru have had a few meet and greet events for Subaru owners before, but the one held on June 19th was the first one since Covid-19 started. It was awesome to get to socialize with other Subaru owners again and talk about our vehicles (one guy had a tent on top of his Ascent)! The event was concluded with a round of generous give aways by Subaru Steve and Anthony V, along with the Kris Wilson who is a co-host of their morning video series online. It was a great event and looking forward to attending the next one!
