In 2010, this wildly successful inaugural event attracted over 7,000 attendees who enjoyed the chance to meet and mingle in a festive atmosphere. Not only was this an exciting day of interactive activities, demonstrations and product exhibitions, over 100 animals in need of forever homes were adopted and the rescue groups raised much needed money for their causes.



Tranquility Trail Animal Sanctuary is a not-for-profit, 501(c)3 organization dedicated to the compassionate care of companion animals. Their mission is to rescue, shelter, rehabilitate and hopefully find a forever home for every animal that finds its way to them. For those who cannot find a home, they are committed to providing a loving, nurturing and protected environment.

Tranquility Trail is a volunteer-based organization and every donation they receive ensures that their programs sufficiently serve those animals that are lost, abused, neglected or unwanted in our community. Proud to be the Arizona Chapter for the House Rabbit Society with two House Rabbit Society Licensed Educators on staff; and this organization is in *Phase One* of their development and at this time are a sanctuary for domestic rabbits.

Also, there are many fun and fulfilling volunteer opportunities to be had at Tranquility Trail.  For anyone interested, please check out their website and you'll be on your way to making a direct difference for the rabbits that they rescue:  Click on the Volunteer tab, then fill out the Volunteer Application.  Thank you!
