Come one, come all to the annual SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network Fashion Show/Luncheon, featuring the exciting traveling boutique, The Calle Rose Trunk Show! This ever-popular event is being offered two days, Wednesday, June 3 and Thursday, June 4. Ticket sales begin Wednesday, May 6, at 9 a.m. in the SaddleBrooke One foyer. After the initial sales, tickets can be purchased at the SaddleBrooke One Administration Office after noon that day. Now that this event is offered on two days, June 3 and 4, be sure to make arrangements with your friends as to their preference date. Cost is $25, all-inclusive. Checks made out to SaddleBrooke One, cash, or a house account can be used for ticket purchases. Credit cards will be accepted for all Calle Rose purchases.

The menu will include seasonal green salad with grilled chicken, a choice of raspberry or poppyseed dressing, strawberries, goat cheese, and croutons. Dessert will be lemon sorbet with a cookie.

There will be a special surprise raffle ticket at each place on the table offering a chance to win one of three Calle Rose gifts, In addition, there will be a special raffle for an acrylic color portrait of your favorite pet, valued at $200. Finally, as always, there will be a 50/25/25 cash prize raffle with tickets being sold at $5 for one and $10 for three. The winner of the acrylic portrait will be drawn after Thursday’s lunch, so ticket sales from both days are in the drawing.

All proceeds benefit the care of the homeless animals in Tucson.

Two Happy Tails

Meet Petie and Patty, adopted by Judy and Jay Robinson. Petie is a four-year-old Chihuahua/Doxie mix. The Robinsons adopted Petie through Adopt A Pet. Due to a special circumstance, his owner was no longer able to care for the sweet boy. Not even a week later, Rochelle, from RoRescue, called and said she had a two-year-old female Shih Tzu/Maltese mix. It never occurred to the Robinsons to say no. Petie and Patty are best buddies and are very happy with their new humans.

Welcome to SaddleBrooke, little ones!
