I've been a longtime lurker on Scoop - and I'm delurking to let people know I found a beautiful, very friendly border collie mix today roaming around Wood-Gormley Elementary School. She's black and white with a little bit of brown on her flanks. She also has some broken teeth. I dropped her off at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter in the hopes that someone is looking for her. If this sounds like your dog or you know someone who is missing a border collie, please check the shelter… Continue

We found Dylan this morning in the spot that we last saw him when he ran off on Saturday. We had taken the suggestion to put worn clothes and food out in the spot where he was last seen. We did that on Monday night. He was not there Tuesday morning or Tuesday night, but this morning, he was there!!! He is doing great. Happy and healthy, and tired. I am so grateful for the suggestion to do that. Thank you!!!

We finally found our dogs with all your warm thoughts and wishes helping us. They were living in the arroyo between Sam's Club and GCCC. We went out before sunrise this morning with food and water. We stood in the arroyo (or wash) behind the fire station, half way between GCCC and Sam's. Gave a couple of whistles and calls in each direction over 5 minutes. In another 5 minutes, here they came, running and jumping and wagging. We're home now, fed and watered and hugged and loved and napping. The… Continue

Summer and the outdoor Farmers Market is rapidly closing in and I am in need of volunteers to work each end of the Market by "HOLDING" dogs for shoppers. This is an ongoing service I started 2 summers ago that has been successful and a satisfactory way for most people to bring their dogs, check them with a holder and shop hands free. This is a donation service with money going to the dog, cat, horse or wildlife charity of your choice. The market goes outside next week. Just to give you an idea,… Continue

Charles and Penelope are a pair of brother and sister Dachshunds.They are five years old, bright and beautiful. Penelope is spayed.
Their owners moved to Santa Fe with only a patio for these frolickers who are used to ranch living; and are still living on the ranch with their caregiver Lisa Raven who is not their owner-person. They are hoping to stay together in a space that has space for them.

About how many animals are too many..... when you are stressing out......when all of them seem to want more and/or
need more attention than you can, or are willing to give them... when you can't afford to feed them....and/or vet them....
when they seem incompatible with each other....when you want to go on vacation and you can't take them all/or don't
want to and can't figure it out....when you stop looking at them with joy and pleasure....and all bets are off when you can't say… Continue

Max - a 100# yellow lab with a black beauty mark on his right jowl and
Sophie - a mixed breed, orange with a little white, very long body, long snout, tall pointy ears.
Max is friendly and Sophie is shy. They stick pretty close together. Sophie got free of her harness but Max still has a red one on we think.
Thanks for any help spotting these two. Karen

Jeffrey is a 2yr old male pit bull at the Espanola Valley Humane Society who is a special boy! Lill is our current shelter mascot and she has no plans of retiring, but we are always looking for "A+" pitties to do the same type of work she does- visiting schools, making public appearances, and teaching people what great dogs pit bulls can be when raised and managed properly. This week, we received Jeffrey and we feel that he may be such a dog. He is… Continue

Mayor Richard Berry said through a spokesman Tuesday that he will take appropriate action when he finds out who is responsible. He has ordered a report on the incident to be done by… Continue

Lyda Gilfoil's neighbor in Santa Rosa died in January, leaving eight horses in need of homes. For the moment, the horses are being care for, thanks to the generosity of the estate. But that could change at any time. Gilfoil, a relatively newcomer to Santa Rosa, has become an animal advocate -- she prefers to say she helps rehome animals -- when she found out the local animal shelter euthanizes animals after three days -- no matter what… Continue

County Sheriff Greg Solano said animal-control officers Thursday removed 39 dogs from Donna Liberty’s residence, No. 93A Kings Farm Road, after serving her with a warrant.

Okay, so I've been spelling Madison with 2-d's....
We need a team. We have 2-traps and we need a team of people who will help walk the arroyo area where she has been sighted to see if we can recognize any den-sights. We need people to monitor traps both day and night. The traps are huge and heavy and take two people to just manage them, never mind where we have to "shlep" them to set them up. We need people to canvass the areas where the traps are set to alert them of what we are… Continue
