Pet Rescue’s Fashion Show/Luncheon a Huge Success

Fabulous Calle Rose models

This year’s SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network’s (SBPRN) fundraiser was a huge success!

Because of the response, we were able to continue holding the fashion show/luncheon on two days again this year! Ticket sales, raffle sales, and Calle Rose sales exceeded all expectations!

We thank everyone who made this possible. Because of your generosity, SBPRN will be able to assist many more pets.

Pet Rescue Event a Winner!

SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network’s Fashion Show and Luncheon fundraiser was recently held at SaddleBrooke One, which served as a festive backdrop for our big event. The generosity of all who purchased tickets or bought Calle Rose fashions or cash raffle tickets pushed us over the top this year! We will be able to assist more pets. Thank you!

Pet Rescue Raffle Sales Over the Top!

A big part of SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network’s (SBPRN) recent fashion show/luncheon was a cash raffle, and due to the volunteers and the many generous SaddleBrooke women who purchased tickets, this year’s raffle sales exceeded all expectations! Multiple winners went away very happy, and SBPRN was thrilled to have all their proceeds go to the pets!

A big thank you to everyone who took a chance, or many chances, on the raffle!

Meet the Newest Member of the SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network Board of Directors

Rick Baumgartner and Jasper

Karyle Steele, Chairperson

Meet Rick Baumgartner, our newest member of the board of directors. He will be the new director of Outreach Initiatives. His assignment will be to strengthen our relationship with the rescue groups that we have worked closely with over the past several years. He will be rejuvenating our Facebook page and will work closely with our veterinarian volunteer Dr. Dawn Thomas to identify needs for “the greater good.” These are cases where we can serve multiple pets in need with the purchase of surgical supplies and pet enrichment programs to enhance the pet’s time at shelters. He will also call on Dawn’s expertise in the area of determining the greatest placement of our resources for the pets in “urgent need” of medical treatment.

Rick is up to the challenge. He currently is a volunteer at our First Friday Drop-Off events and works as a volunteer at the Tri-Community Food Bank. This gives him a good grasp of the needs in our community but also an appreciation of the generosity of the SaddleBrooke residents.

Let’s give Rick a big welcome and your support as he moves forward on his assignment to help us achieve our goals of serving the homeless and abandoned pets in our area.
