Dear Rescue Me Tucson Family:
November is a time for gratitude:
We’re so very grateful for the opportunity to partner with the greater Southern Arizona community to help homeless animals–especially those living in rural areas with few resources.
We’re thankful for you and your continued support of our mission to open a sustainable Collaborative based Pet Adoption Center.
We’re beyond grateful for the support of our Fairy Dogmother, who has just offered an additional $5,000 match to help us with Giving Tuesday and our year-end appeal! We’d be so thankful to have your support on Giving Tuesday, December 1, 2020. Please donate at the link below and remember your donations are doubled up to $5,000.00 on Giving Tuesday and through the end of the year. Thank you!
Another big moment of gratitude arrived this week with the announcement that a puppy-mill store, Puppy World in Marana is no more. Thanks to cooperative efforts from the rescue community, they realized Tucson would not support them. Rescue Me Tucson worked with the local press and national and local animal welfare partners to shine a light on this operation. We will continue our work to educate the public on the link between traditional pet stores selling animals and online brokers to the cruel puppy mill industry. To have a ‘business’ like this close before the holiday season is truly wonderful.
We hope that however you’re spending this Thanksgiving holiday, that you’ll be surrounded by friendship and family, in whatever form that takes.

P.S.: A special thanks to Best Friends and HSUS for their COVID-19 relief grants. Thanks to the Binky Foundation for their recent grant to help us purchase kennel enrichment items.
We also want to thank everyone who helped make our Strut Your Mutt (and Kitty) event a success, especially our Strut your Mutt sponsors below; we’re already looking forward to next year’s event!
