FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
What is Rescue Me Tucson?
Rescue Me Tucson is a new 501c3 run entirely by volunteers whose purpose is to open and operate a Pet Adoption Center (Rescue Me Marana) for multiple rescue groups and shelters to use. The Center provides increased visibility and adoption potential for both dogs and cats from Southern Arizona rescues and shelters.
Why is Rescue Me Tucson important?
By helping smaller rescue groups and shelters get their animals seen and adopted faster, the animals will be less stressed because they will be able to transition into their forever homes faster, allowing rescues and shelters to take in more animals in need. We are currently adopting just over 500 animal per year.
Why open a Brick and Mortar Location?
A Pet Adoption Center in a convenient shopping area allows RMT and their partner groups to provide a welcoming, relaxed environment to showcase adoptable animals. Our Pet Adoption Center also provides an alternative to for profit pet stores and internet sellers and be a consistent presence for resource information for the public. The Center animals may still be featured on Pet Harbor, Pet Finder, and partner group websites, but adopters want & need a pleasant, easily accessible place with regular business hours to meet the animals and complete the paperwork.
By providing an appealing, high-visibility outlet, we are able to attract potential adopters into our doors to view, meet, and hopefully adopt a suitable dog.
