The Network's Wags & Walkers Group was formed in 2005 when a SaddleBrooke animal lover saw a need for volunteers at Pima Animal Care Center (PACC).  Since that time, a dedicated group carpools every Tuesday to PACC to exercise and socialize shelter pets waiting for their forever homes. We even have a small grooming team now.  On the weekends, we also provide offsite adoption support.

To volunteer at Pima Animal Care Center you'll need to complete their volunteer training program, but you are welcome to join us as a guest walker to try it out.  Check out PACC's website for more information on volunteering at PACC.

One full SUV load of donated pet items (crates/pet beds/toys) was delivered to Cody’s Friends by volunteer Suzanne Bassett. In addition, several bags of dog & cat food and 24 new blankets were donated by Network volunteers for homeless pets at Cody’s Open House fundraiser.

A Thunder Shirt and several bags of toys were donated to the Decompression Group at Pima Animal Care Center.  Decompression volunteers are a group of specially trained volunteers who work with the fearful dogs that come into the shelter. Toys provide enrichment to these special dogs as well as assist volunteers in earning trust and making a connection. Thunder Shirts are calming coats that help these dogs with anxiety issues.

An SUV load of unsold IDWI sale items was transported to the Valley Humane Society by board member Doris Tassin. The Bow Wow Meow Thrift Store in Globe provides financial support to the Valley Humane Society and is an active shopping destination in Globe.
