It’s that time of year again when Beading Divas to the Rescue do a shout out for beads.
BEADS ARE NEEDED TO CONTINUE OUR MISSION!
Every month we choose a different 501c3 animal charity to raise money for. Since April 2009, the Beading Divas have raised more than $115,000 from one-of-a-kind beaded bracelets available for $20.
All funds raised (to date) have been donated to 45 animal charities (some chosen more than once) in five states (AZ, CA, FL, MA, and KS).
You can drop off beads at various venues around Tucson/Green Valley, mail them, or we can pick up beads, pending location. Can you help? Call 520-955-9061 for our mailing address or email firstname.lastname@example.org

On September 13, 2013 Miss Maggie May’s Rescue went to PACC to pick up Morgan who had 7 puppies less then 4 days old. When we got to the shelter there was a mix up and the shelter thought we were there to get Pipster who gave birth to 4 puppies the night before.
We found out that both moms came in together, so we took both families. Thirteen pups total on Friday the 13th of all days.
Once we got the moms settled into their new digs, is was apparent that something wasn’t right with Pipster’s left eye. The notes from the shelter said cloudy eye. We had it checked by one of our vets and there was no need to be alarmed at that time It was soon time to have Pipster spayed and we asked the vet to re- check her eye which was determined at that time her eye needed to be removed as it was starting to press on her nerve and would cause too many other problems if left in.
The next day when Pipster was picked up, the vet placed something in the transporter’s hand. It was a BB, Pipster was shot in the inside corner of her eye with a BB. So Pipster hung out in her foster home to recover and started attending adoption events.
Morgan was adopted in December 2013, but Pipster continued to wait and wait.
In March 2014 a couple saw Pipster and decided to give her a great home. Pipster is now Nikki and has two large buddies in her new home; she goes on long walks and from the reports we get — she is doing great.
Beading Divas to the Rescue loves these happy ending stories. Thank you to Miss Maggie May’s Rescue for all you do to help these dogs. It takes time, patience, and funds to make it happen.

This month Beading Divas to the Rescue is excited to be raising funds for:
Miss Maggie May’s Rescue is committed to finding safe and caring homes for unwanted dogs. MMMR is a Tucson-based all volunteer rescue group providing medical care, spay/neuter and vaccinations for dogs that have found themselves deemed not adoptable in our local shelter such as moms to be, families, puppies, sick or injured dogs.
Luna is a two year old Papillon mix. In May her owner took her and her one week old puppies to Pima county shelter. MMMR was able to get her and her pups out before they got sick.
Luna did a good job raising her pups in foster care and all pups found homes. Luna was a very scared little girl with trust issues when she came to MMMR. Luna is still looking for someone special, who will take the time she needs to trust, and the extra time she needs to trust men. Once you gain her trust she is a lap dog and loves to be petted.
Luna is current on vaccinations, micro-chipped, spayed and licensed in Pima County.
