Come down to Hassett Subaru Saturday, October 10th, from 12n – 3pm, to meet the available dogs up for adoption from the Last Hope, Inc. Shelter. We will have give-aways and prizes for your fur babies!
Last Hope, Inc. is a not-for-profit, tax-exempt organization that is dedicated to the rescue and rehabilitation of death-due pound, stray and abandoned animals. Through its many programs, Last Hope is attempting to reduce the tremendous cat and dog overpopulation problem on Long Island, encourage responsible and economical pet ownership, and transform the public image of the typical pound animal. Since 2015, Subaru retailers, like Hassett Subaru, have partnered together with local animal welfare organizations through the Subaru Loves Pets initiative to impact over 109,000 animals in need across the country.
One Facebook post started a chain of events that helped a nurse from Iowa, whose 2020 Ford Fusion car keys were accidentally thrown in the trash this weekend.
Amber Rock left her husband and two kids in Iowa to come and work at North Shore Plainview Hospital as a travelling nurse to help during the Corona virus pandemic. As she was leaving from her shift at the hospital, she realized her bag with her keys was missing. Amber now had no way to get back to the motel she is staying at and had no idea where to start to get new keys for the car. Her c-worker, Steve Clarke, put out a Facebook post asking if anyone could help her.
Karen Fatta, our Office Manager at Hassett, saw the post on her neighbors Facebook feed on Sunday night. She immediately called, Marc Zergebel, Hassett’s VP/General Manager, and told him of Amber’s problem. Marc said to have her car towed to the dealership Monday morning. Service & Parts hooked the car up to the computer to program a new key. By the end of the day, Amber had her new set of keys! Karen went a step further and delivered the car to Amber that night.
Marc Zergebel was so moved that Amber left her family in Iowa to come to Long Island, that he offered to replace her keys at no charge! “Hassett was happy to do our part and help Amber out in these difficult times”. Needless to say, Amber was very grateful.
