About Us

Rescue Me Tucson is a 501(c3) non-profit formed to establish and operate a collaborative-based Pet Adoption Center to provide consumers with a compassionate alternative to pet stores selling mill-bred puppies and kittens and help rescue animals find forever homes. We Need Your Help!

Rescue Me Tucson (RMT)

Rescue Me Tucson has a board of seven seasoned animal advocates. Board member expertise includes shelter management, veterinary medicine, non-profit, small business, rescue and foster experience; social science research expertise, and public policy development. We’ve worked diligently with community partners to lay the groundwork for success for our center, which will provide a vibrant, welcoming shared space where partnerships thrive and the community can participate in finding solutions to help homeless companion animals. The Center will help multiple Tucson and rural area rescues and shelters. We initially expect to help more than 1,000 rescued dogs and cats annually find homes.

Our Operation Model

RMT’s model is based on the Best Friends No Kill LA Center in Los Angeles and the Sugar House in Salt Lake City. We’ll be the first collaborative-based pet adoption center in Arizona, and the experiences we gain will help develop a template for centers in other communities. Our center will be open seven days a week and offer potential adopters the opportunity to meet many adoptable dogs and cats of all ages. The increased visibility will reduce the “bottleneck” that foster-based rescues experience caused by limited exposure of their adoptable animals. More exposure equals more adoptions and enables rescues to save more lives! We hope to have the Center operational by summer 2020. We welcome your help to reach this vital goal!
