Dog Adoption Day is Huge Success!
On Sat June 8th, 2013, Patriot Subaru welcomed Maine Lab Rescue to the store, with 20 dogs in tow!
With great anticipation for the event, the store was filled with dogs and people for the morning and afternoon. In the end, 13 families made new homes for dogs, a tremendous success.

Patriot Subaru had announced prior to the event that we would provide $100 towards the cost of the first 10 adoptions, but we didn't stop at 10. All 13 received the help - that's the Patriot way!

Maine Lab Rescue  is based in Windham,ME. They are a foster-based program, so the dogs came into the store with their respective foster families. They met the prospective adoptive families, and time was taken to get to know each other.  Maine Lab Rescue is very particular and cautious about placing any dog with a family.  Each dog spent several hours getting to know the family, before any final arrangements were made.  A few of the dogs did go home with Patriot Subaru employees!

Patriot Subaru is a busy dealership!

But it's not just selling and servicing cars and trucks, it's about being involved in many community activities, employee events, and charitable programs.  The best way to check out current activities is on our Facebook  page, as well as to follow us on Twitter . Those programs are stocked daily with up to the minute activity.  Aside from that, here's a few highlights!
November 2012:  Patriot Subaru employees, customers, and friends donated over $5000 to the Red Cross Hurricane Sandy Disaster Relief Fund, a number that was then matched by Patriot Subaru.
The total donation to the Red Cross came to $10,256. Thank you all who contributed, it was greatly appreciated and very,very needed.
Patriot Subaru is honored by Efficiency Maine

Efficiency Maine is a Maine state program that promotes efficient use of electricity and cost reduction, and provides financial assistance to businesses able to make a commitment to more efficient lighting programs. Patriot invested into a complete retrofitting of all outdoor light fixtures by installing LED lights. EM provided a 35% rebate. The investment should be recovered inside of 5 years, but immediately the annual lighting bill will be reduced by an estimated $13k. Patriot is the first auto dealer in the state to make this energy saving decision, and was honored in a special ceremony at the store. The goal is for other businesses to see the benefits and consider making a similar investment. Pictured above from Left: Adam Arens, Pres/Owner Patriot Subaru, Robert Boucher/Pres NR Bros.
