As Animal Welfare month came to a close, Bookmans Flagstaff couldn’t think of a better conclusion than to spend a day in the sun at the 8th annual Rescue Roundup. With over thirty pet rescues and shelters in attendance Rescue Roundup takes the title as the largest rescue event of Northern Arizona.

Bookmans was first approached by AZ Border Collie Rescue in May. They were looking for small donations for the Rescue Roundup raffle, but when we learned of the overwhelming success of last year’s Roundup, with a total 59 adoptions, we had to get more involved. Aside from becoming a sponsor, we asked if we could have a table and give out cool swag, including Bookmans dog leashes, to supporters of pet rescues because rescued is our favorite breed.

The event was again a huge success. Over 40 pets found forever homes and countless applications were turned in for others. Spay Neuter Clinic offered low cost vaccinations and $20 microchipping was available to pet owners by our host AZ Border Collie Rescue. New pet owners in need of toys and supplies for their furry friends found them from countless vendors selling all manner of goodies. This event had everything!

We had a great time at Rescue Roundup and will attend next year. If you missed out on the Roundup, there are still plenty of adorable pets in need of homes. For a complete list of rescues, visit the Rescue Roundup website and find your new best friend!
