During this time, tickets will also be sold for the Fashion Show & Luncheon sponsored by the SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network at $30 each.

Help us support the rescue groups and shelters in our area. The pets don’t know that they are not supposed to be hungry, hurt, or mistreated. They need us to help them go on to fulfilling and healthy lives.

Until there are none—save one.

Our various pet charities are always in need and are always thankful for your donations. Please consider dropping off any of the items listed below. Cash donations are also accepted and appreciated. The drop-off location is at the SaddleBrooke One bocce ball courts. It is the first Friday of every month.

September drop-off hours are 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.

Caution: Please drive up slowly and watch for volunteers at the cones!

We are in need of pet food.

We accept most pet-related items that are in clean and good condition, such as clean towels and clean sheets (both flat and fitted).

Pet crates of any size are accepted. Please break them down before donating.

We cannot accept any Poly-Fil items, such as pillows, as they present a choking hazard. Nor can we accept any rugs with rubber backing.

Any items accepted are at the discretion of the volunteers.

Please do not leave items unattended.

My Name Is Robbie—Please Consider Opening Your Heart and Home to Me


Romayne Trudo

I was rescued on July 4 in SaddleBrooke by volunteers of the SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network (SBPRN). They have been looking for my owner for almost two months. I was wearing a collar, but there were no identification tags or microchip found. I have been featured on Nextdoor and SBPRN Facebook, placed on lost and found sites throughout Tucson, and flyers have been placed around surrounding communities. No one seems to be looking for me. My rescuers believe that I was frightened by the 4th of July fireworks because I was terrified and trembling when they found me huddled in a doorway.

They say I am approximately 2 years old, a 50-pound male, rottweiler/Lab mix. I am very shy but have a sweet nature. I thanked my rescuer with a gentle kiss. At this time, I am being cared for by volunteers at Oracle Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation. They have been wonderful and have offered to continue helping with training if I am fostered or adopted. If you are patient and kind, please consider giving me a home. I will quickly become your best friend.

For more information, please call Romayne of SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network at 520-834-5718.

Annual Pet Food Drive: Helping Pets in Need

Don’t miss SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network’s (SBPRN) Pet Food Drive on Wednesday, Oct. 18, from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m., being held at the SaddleBrooke One parking lot near the bocce ball courts. This food drive benefits the Pets in Need Action League (P.I.N.A.L.), which provides temporary pet food assistance to qualified residents of Pinal County who may be struggling to provide for their pets. P.I.N.A.L. relies on grants and donations, as it receives no municipal, county, or federal funding. Please drop off your unopened dry or canned dog/puppy and cat/kitten food (only food, not other pet items). Of course, cash donations are always accepted. Other pet items can be dropped off at SBPRN’s first Friday Drop-Off, which is held each first Friday of the month, also near the bocce ball courts.
