SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network’s Pet Food Drive a Super Success

Debora Witten and the SaddleBrooke Ranch Dinking Divas

Our annual pet food drive benefits Pets in Need Action League (P.I.N.A.L.), which serves as a pet food bank for all of Pinal County. Families need to qualify for this service, and once qualified, they receive pet food from the organization to help them keep their pets instead of having to surrender them to a shelter.

This year we had our SaddleBrooke Ranch partners, led by Debora Witten, contribute to the cause.

They provided a pickup truck full of pet food in August and then, again, an SUV full of food for this event, which we held on Sept. 30. They have become great partners to champion the efforts to help the homeless pets and pets in need.

Once again, SaddleBrooke residents stepped up in support of our commitment to continue to serve our rescue partners. We are forever grateful to all of you who make this possible.

Happy Tail—It’s a Celebration

Dharma with Debbie and Warren Montoya

Romayne Trudo

SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network is delighted to announce that Dharma, the Australian cattle dog, has found her perfect home. She has been living with a very caring foster for several years but needed to find a permanent home. Dharma is a bit of a princess and had specific requirements for her new home: She had to be the only pet, requires two walks per day, frequent golf cart rides, and the non-negotiable requirement—she must sleep with her people on the bed. It took a while for the perfect couple to come along, but they have.

We would like you to meet Debbie and Warren Montoya of SaddleBrooke. They recently lost their beloved dog Honey, whom they adopted at six weeks of age, and she passed at the age of 16. When they saw Dharma’s picture in the SaddleBag Notes, they could not believe how much she resembled their dog Honey. Then, as luck would have it, or was it fate? their paths crossed while Dharma was on one of her many walks. It was love at first sight! It didn’t matter to them one bit that she had been deaf since birth. They were smitten. Her adoption was a little bittersweet for the foster, but he knew she was on her way to the perfect SaddleBrooke home. And, by the way, she did sleep on the bed with her people the first night and every night since. Such a princess!
