Towels delivered to Pima Animal Care Center

Karyle Steele

Pima Animal Care Center (PACC) posted on Facebook that they needed towels desperately. The shelves were bare from the intake of puppies and kittens and pregnant females.

Jan Pede, our network liaison at PACC brought this to the network’s attention asking us to direct as many towels to her as we can get.

Karen Brooks, our IT specialist, put the message out on Nextdoor. The response was more than overwhelming! Within three days we had donors from all over SaddleBrooke, SaddleBrooke Ranch, Black Horse Ranch, and Eagle Crest delivering towels to Jan.

This call to action is proof positive that networking works, with the power of the outreach of Nextdoor and the response of so many people that want to help homeless pets.

Catalina Craft Pizza gives back

Karyle Steele

Every third Wednesday, the generous owners of Catalina Craft Pizza donate 15% of that day’s proceeds to various area charities.

At one recent event, this charitable foundation was H.O.M.S. (Helping Orphaned Mutts Succeed). The group brought a lucky pooch named Dennis to the event. Within a few short days, he was headed from the Pinal County Animal Care and Control shelter to a foster family on his way to finding his forever home.

You can contact Catalina Craft Pizza at 520-825-0140 for information on upcoming events. Check them out for great food, great drinks, and great live music. They are located in the Catalina Pointe Plaza, 15930 N. Oracle.

Tiger, another happy tail

Carole Rossof

Tiger, formerly known as Bam Bam, was adopted in June by Carolyn and Denny Lavelle. A few months prior to the adoption, Carolyn found Tiger through Adopt-A-Pet online. In June she received an email from RoRescue that Tiger was ready to be adopted. He is a six-year-old Maltese/Pom mix and it was definitely love at first sight for both Tiger and the Lavelles. He is so sweet and lovable and prefers to be by their side at all times. Tiger has made it perfectly clear that his role in life is to make his humans happy.

Welcome to SaddleBrooke, Tiger!
