First Friday Drop Off Program

Karyle Steele

It was all hands-on-deck on New Year’s Day as the volunteers of the SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network’s (SBPRN). First Friday teams were ready to collect the food and pet items for the rescuers and shelters that SBPRN supports. We even had Lily#3 from Oracle Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation show up to help!

On the first Friday of each month, residents can drop off their pet donations at the SaddleBrooke One Bocce Ball court from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m.

Thanks to our SaddleBrooke residents for coming out on the holiday to support the pets. What a turn out it was! Food, crates, beds, and miscellaneous items were collected and sent on to Oracle Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation, Cherished Tails Senior Sanctuary, and to the Pinal County Animal Care and Control shelter. Cody’s Friends was also a recipient of some of the items. The blankets and towels were especially needed as we go into the cold months. The cash donations were also very much appreciated.

Thanks, SaddleBrooke, for your support for our First Friday drop off program. We marked our fifth year in November 2020, and we look forward to many more years of serving the homeless and abandoned pets in our community.

From T-Shirts to Dog Toys!

Karen Brooks

SaddleBrooke residents, if you have old t-shirts that you are willing to donate, we have a great way for you to donate them to a good cause, Oracle Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation (OARR).

One of the volunteers at OARR has been making toys from t-shirts for foster dogs. The dogs love the toys and they are washable and environmentally friendly. If you have been busy cleaning out your closets and drawers during your long stretches at home, we would be happy to turn your T-shirts into dog toys!

SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network board member, Karen Brooks, is willing to accept your donations at her home in SaddleBrooke TWO. Look for a clear plastic bag on the table at her front door. Her home address (near Desert View Center) is 61714 E. Oakwood Drive. Look for the purple and gold metal sun over the garage door.

We also accept donations at our first Friday drop-off event from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. on the first Friday of the month. Drop off is at the bocce ball court in SaddleBrooke One.
