You’re invited to the ‘NONEVENT’ of the year

The Power of US gala is on a non-day at a non-time to support animal rescue.

Drinks will not be served at 6:00 p.m. The program will not begin at 7:00 p.m. No $100 tickets for two; no $50 bar tab; no $120 manicure, pedicure, hairstyle, etc. Don’t attend and save over $300!

Our calendars are outrageously full so forget the event, stay home, relax and take five minutes to send 100% of your donation to local animal rescue efforts.

The Power of US unleashes SaddleBrooke residents’ passion for rescue. Some love wags and purrs; others fancy feathers, neighs or reptiles but we have one thing in common – our hearts long for a day without abused and abandoned animals. So together we will raise support but you will choose the rescue group!

This is the Pet Rescue Network’s primary winter fundraiser. We won’t even ask for dues so please support this effort. We can’t continue without it. Here’s the scoop:

Our goal is to raise $10,000 between December and February. You select which of the six rescues you wish to receive your donation (each aids a different species). If you wish to donate to more than one we will divide your donation equally among them. The Network will reserve $10 of each gift for our emergency fund for SaddleBrooke and Ranch strays’ medical care and rehoming and to support local rescues with urgent medical needs. Participating Rescues include:

Pima Paws for Life (dogs) Pawsitively Cats

Equine Voices Rescue and Sanctuary (horses) Tucson Reptile Rescue (reptiles/turtles)

Tucson Wildlife Center (wildlife/birds) SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network

Donations of $40 or more are entered to win a prize from 10 sponsors detailed on our website. The top 10 Power Hitters will be honored in our final article. And, if we meet our $10,000 goal, there will be a special surprise to acknowledge SaddleBrooke communities and the Power of US fundraiser.

Let’s harness the Power of Us and show Tucson how much SaddleBrooke loves rescue! All group or unit donations will be mentioned in an article. Donate online at or by check to SaddleBrooke Pet Rescue Network c/o Evelyn Summers, 39459 S. Moonwood Drive, SaddleBrooke, Arizona 85739.
