The annual Buddy’s Buddies Pet Giving Tree COMING SOON!


Tags are ready! Come pick a tag or two to help local pets.

Come in to the Tribune office lobby and pick a tag off the tree, or download printable tags here.

The NKC Tribune and Tribune Office Supply & Printing are teaming up with ARRF and HopeSource again this holiday season to collect blankets, towels, treats, dog and cat toys, tennis balls and cash and check donations to go towards ARRF’s veterinary bills. All items printed on the tags are pulled from the wish list of ARRF Animal Rescue.

Easy as 1-2-3!

1. Pick a tag.

2. Get the item.

3. Bring it in (unwrapped – bows and ribbons okay) with the tag and put it under the Buddy’s Buddies Pet Giving Tree.

The Buddy’s Buddies Pet Giving Tree will be up through the New Year with 100% of the proceeds going to ARRF and HopeSource to help pets in our area.

If you would rather use your credit card to donate any amount directly to ARRF, they have a PayPal donations button at: www.arrfanimalrescue.org/donate


Free to Buddy’s Buddies donors, while supply lasts.


Why is Buddy doing this Pet Giving Tree?

Once upon a time a handsome feral orange tabby cat hung around outside the NKC Tribune’s new office space in the Davis Street Plaza. He began sitting outside the Publisher’s window, looking in and rubbing up against the glass. His appearance grew more and more frequent, until she began calling him her “Little Buddy”. The name stuck. A few bowls of food and a bunch of patient coaxing later, the one-time skittish stray worked his way into the hearts of the entire staff. Now he lives the good life as “Official Office Cat & Greeter”.

Buddy would like to “PAW IT FORWARD” to other less fortunate animals in the Upper County this holiday season. Now you can help him reach that generous goal by taking or printing out a tag from his Pet Giving Tree and fulfilling a wishlist item!
