Planet Subaru Home Forever Fund



The Planet Subaru Home Forever Fund (PSHFF) was established by Standish Humane Society in 2016 as a result of the generosity of Planet Subaru of Hanover.  Planet Subaru is widely known as the “undealership” for its wonderful and honest business practices and for its committed community citizenship.  Planet Subaru first became a top corporate sponsor of Standish’s annual fundraiser DoggiePawLooza in 2007 and then increased its support in 2013 by naming Standish as its “local charity” for Subaru of America’s national “Share the Love” fundraising campaign.  Over the first two years of this campaign, Standish received over $51,000 and put those funds to work to carry out its mission to reduce the problem of animal overpopulation and animal suffering through its rescue/adoption and spay/neuter programs.  In March, 2016, Standish received its latest Share the Love donation in the amount of $48,434  and knew that it now had the capability to expand its programs to help the animals of the South Shore by creating the PSHFF, a program designed to help people in need KEEP THEIR ANIMALS IN THEIR OWN HOMES!  Standish knows that people do not want to give up their pets because of a [temporary] financial inability to feed, medicate or provide veterinary care for the animals and, most importantly, that the animals are better off staying in their current “forever homes” than being abandoned or surrendered to a shelter.

Thank you and Planet Subaru for helping Finn. 


A few months ago, my cat Finn stopped keeping his food down, which was really unlike him because he normally inhales his food!  After multiple visits to different vets, my worst fears were realized… my cat needed invasive surgery and I simply did not have enough money to afford it. I reached out to anyone who could help and Finn’s shelter, Standish Humane Society, answered the call. They went above and beyond for Finn and me. Without generous donors like Planet Subaru, none of it would have been possible and my goofy loving boy might not be with me right now. I can’t thank you enough, I’m forever grateful to your kindness.
