Pohanka of Salisbury is always there when times get ruff. Recently the Wicomico County Humane Society was in desperate need of wet dog food for their injured puppies with weak and sensitive teeth. The shelter was almost completely out of wet dog food and feeding these poor animals dry food could further harm their health and prolong the healing process. In need of help, the Humane Society staff went to social media imploring local residents and business to donate a can or two of wet dog food to their shelter.
Pohanka took the initiative one step further. Only minutes after seeing the post, Pohanka’s Marketing Team was clearing local markets out of wet dog food. They packed the back of a pickup truck with over thirty cases of wet dog food cans and headed to the shelter.
The volunteers and staff were amazed when a truck full of donations pulled up to their door at just 10:30 in the morning. “It was absolutely incredible and so helpful. You have no idea how much this will help these animals grow and heal. We are all so grateful and know we can always count on Pohanka.” Said Siobhan Wyatt the Shelter Manager.
Pohanka’s donation along with numerous other wet food donations by various locals stocked the shelter’s pantry. The animals the shelter houses are once again properly fed and are on their way to finding new homes.

Your in good hands with our Allstate Insurance team here at Pohanka of Salisbury! Last month alone our team of educated and skilled product specialist helped a record breaking number of people save money on their insurance policies! Our teams goal is to lower your rate while making sure you have the exact amount of coverage you need.
Shore Insurance at Pohanka of Salisbury was first created back in 2015 when Pohanka Automotive Group of Salisbury’s Owner/Operator Sandy Fitzgerald wanted her customers to have the ability to purchase car insurance on site when purchasing a new or pre-owned vehicle. “It’s a really great opportunity to be able to purchase your insurance at the actual dealership” Says Bethaney Ralph Head of Shore Insurance. “Your not just spitting numbers and mild information into a computer but your having a real discussion with an actual insurance representative who knows the exact car your buying and its history.”
Shore Insurance not only provides customers with car insurance but also sells home insurance, renters insurance, life insurance, boat insurance, motorcycle insurance, jet ski insurance and more! “If it has a motor we can insure it” says Ralph.
Customers often rave that the prime benefit of purchasing form Shore Insurance is the ability to sit down with a personal and local insurance agent to take a look at their current coverage. Very often consumers only look at their insurance policy when it is first purchased and forget to revisit the policy when a life changing event occurs.
“I constantly hear our agents telling customers they only have this little tiny bit of coverage that is the absolute minimum” Ralph explains “Often customers have a large amount of capital invested in these assets and need to up their coverage to protect it. This kind of personal advice can not come from a computer.”
Shore Insurance’s personal approach to the insurance industry has caused this strong team to shatter records and save locals more money than ever before. They will continue to help anyone who walks through the door and implores everyone in the Delmarva area to look over their current policy and give them a call with any questions. When was the last time you checked your coverage? Don’t trust those 1-800 numbers to get you out of a bind. Call our team today at (443) 260-1610
After a year of dedicated fundraising the Pohanka of Salisbury Relay For Life Team was able to donate over $15,000 at the 2017 Wicomico County Relay For Life Festival on September 22nd.
Pohanka showed their automotive spirit by decorating a booth at the festivities as a make believe car wash. Kids could run through the streamers and sponges while bubbles were blown in the wind to give the effect of an actual car wash. The team also created a Pohanka exclusive convertible made from cardboard and complete with working head and tail lights. Each of the Pohanka store logos were showcased on the side of the car giving a feeling of maximum Pohanka Pride. A livestream of this vehicles race around the track can be seen here. The team’s motto of “wash away cancer” was also shown through their sale of wet wipe containers specifically designed to fit in the cup holder of a car. All proceeds of these sales were donated to the American Cancer Society.
Of course these sales were not the only donation Pohanka made. In fact, Pohanka of Salisbury had been hosting fundraisers all year long to raise as many donations as possible for the Relay For Life organization. From in house paint nights to hot dog lunches Pohanka continuously looked for opportunities to raise money for this profound organization. President of the Pohanka Relay team, Samantha Seaton, even hosted a ladies night in which representatives from local companies made a donation to set up a booth in Pohanka Toyota and have the opportunity to sell their products to locals. Each vendor also donated an item to raffle off. All the proceeds from the raffle were donated as well.
“Everytime I think of Relay I think of the fact that we do this so one day we don’t have to,” Says Samantha Seaton. “We do all of this so that one day there will be a cure for cancer.”
A large portion of the community came out to the Wicomico County Relay For Life event. Many survivors and their family members walked the track but many local business and organizations also made an appearance. Families and teams from all over the state came to show support for those fighting for their lives. “I love seeing kids and families at these events because it’s important to inspire the next generation to get involved and be aware at a young age that they can make a difference.” Seaton exclaimed.
Pohanka’s year long combined efforts generated a donation of over $15,000 to give to the American Cancer Society. This was the second largest donation made by a single team in the county. The entire Pohanka team wanted to thank everyone who made a contribution to their efforts. The Pohanka of Salisbury Relay For Life Team is already working on fundraisers to start generating donations for next years relay.
