  • March 12, 2011 · 9:00 AM
  • Animal Guardian Network Sanctuary

Please join us!

Volunteer assistance is needed at the upcoming BIG YARD SALE on the Animal Guardian sanctuary grounds.  Plus, you'll get to view the progress that members of Animal Advocates of Arizona helped to make possible during your efforts at our previous volunteer meetups at this site!


Roxie's Charity Boutique & Gallery (on the Animal Guardian sanctuary grounds) will be open on the day of this meetup event filled with fabulous one-of-a-kind must-haves!  Inside you'll find original and print artwork, one-of-a-kind jewelry, handmade pottery and raku, canine and feline goodies, garden art and much, much more!  Shop with the satisfaction of knowing that all proceeds will directly assist our valley's animals that are in need of a second chance.  

Members of this group that helped prepare Roxie's back when it was an empty room in need of much TLC will be amazed at the shop's sleek appearance! 


 Saturday, March 12th (Sale is from 9am to 4pm)

Water & delicious vegan refreshments will be provided to all volunteers.



  • 9AM - 10AM: Sale set up
  • 10AM - 1PM: assistance during the sale
  • 1PM - 4PM: assistance during the sale
  • 4PM - 5PM: breakdown/clean up after sale

 When you RSVP, please note the time slot you can be there.

Remember, if unable to volunteer, stop by to shop!


The BIG YARD SALE will include:  new & very gently used Dog & Cat Toys, Collars & Leashes, Dog Apparel, Miscellaneous Pet Supplies, Gift Items, Pet Strollers & Carriers.  Plus Roxie's Charity Boutique & Gallery is loaded with fantastic items for yourself, your companion animals and family & friends for whom you've been wanting to buy that special something!

All proceeds will directly assist our valley's animals in great need via Animal Guardian Network's many critical programs and resources.

    Despite having a really bad cold, I enjoy spending time with all of the volunteers, the rehab dogs, Harley who is looking for his forever home, and all of the shoppers.
