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.

​Our first Annual Pet Food Drive was held in August. Four SUVs loaded with pet food were delivered to Cody’s Friends, Cherished Tails Senior Sanctuary, Lil Bit of Love and Hope Shelter along with a check for $150 to each group which was collected during the event.

PACC put out an urgent need for towels on their FaceBook page. As a result of some quick thinking by our PACC liaison and our IT person, we were able to media blast it out on NextDoor. As a result, we had over 30 respondents and collected over 45 large bags of towels in just 4 days. PHOTO ATTACHED

Our monthly pickup program has grown substantially. We are averaging 4-5 SUVs loaded with pet items to be delivered to the various rescue groups and shelter.

Thanks to SaddleBrooke residents – you are the best!
