Please contact us by noon on the Thursday before the requested pick-up date so that we can arrange the most efficient schedule. Just place it in your driveway by 8:00 a.m. on the day of pick-up and we will do the rest.

A volunteer helps show jewelry for sale.

Desperately seeking…

The Wags and Walkers group hopes to begin donation collection for this fall’s ‘I Don’t Want It’ sale in early July. All proceeds from this sale always go to benefit the pets at Pima Animal Care Center. We’re looking for garage storage space from July to mid-October (depending on the event date). Is there a snowbird who would lend their garage while away? Or perhaps you have an empty casita or rental? This is a one-time event commitment.

We are also looking for a volunteer interested in coordinating this year’s jewelry/boutique sales. You would be responsible for going through all jewelry and boutique donations and pricing them for the sale. You will have responsibility for the sale space and coordinating the volunteers on the day of sale. You’ll have volunteer assistance prior to and at the sale. We are only asking for a one-time event commitment.

This is the perfect opportunity to help out a wonderful long standing fundraiser. Please pay it forward and help us continue this tradition.

If you can help, please contact Jan Pede at jhpede@gmail.com.

Oscar gets adopted.

Another happy tail

Carole Rossof

Sweet Oscar was found as a stray on the southside of Tucson. One of Cherished Tails Senior Sanctuary rescue friends found him and recognized that he was special and asked Cherished Tails to take him in. One of the fosters of this group gladly opened up her home. This was a wonderful decision on her part.

Oscar got along great with the other cats and dogs in the house. He was so loving to the foster mom and her children; he was just too irresistible not to be loved. He was then checked out by the vet; vaccinated neutered, and healthy and adoption ready.

Oscar made his debut at Adopt Love Adopt Local this past April. Everyone who met him loved him like crazy. It was love at first sight for Oscar and his new mom. He’s now residing in the Catalina Foothills and is a very spoiled only kitty. This little orphan boy is now king of the castle and living the dream.
