Why microchipping is so vital and why it works!

About 8:30 this monring my cell phone rang - I wasn't in a place to answer it and didn't recognize the number, so I let it go through to vm. A few minutes letter an email shows up on my 'puter with the title "Your Lost Dog Found". I opened it up and discovered that Daisy had been found.

Daisy is a beautiful - 7-8 year old basset who recently lost an eye to glaucoma. We adopted her out to a family in Belen about a month ago after doing the usual home visits, reference checks etc. Were… Continue

Food for thought

I am posting this because of the dog still missing from Tierra Contenta. Initially, 2 dogs from the same household went missing with one of them being returned yesterday after money exchanged hands….

Please read if you have dogs and please note:

This is about understanding what can make our dogs vulnerable to theft or unscrupulous people.

There has been a recent incident on the southwest side of Santa Fe that is beginning to look like there may be foul play… Continue

Lost Cat

Last Saturday, I adopted a 12 year old cat from a man who is terminally ill and cannot care for him anymore. We had him for 24 hours and then he escaped through the window screen on Sunday afternoon. What a way for a good deed to be undone!

His name is Spike. He is a black tabby cat with white front and feet. He hasn't been with us long enough to consider us home, and he's either trying to get back to his old home downtown or he's hiding somewhere in my neighborhood, which is behind… Continue

Let's all get SCOOP some well deserved recognition!

This year's voting for BEST OF SANTA FE in the Santa Fe Reporter has officially begun.

I just went through the rather tedious voting process, but I do it every year because as a business owner, I can tell you, winning this award is very special because it comes from our customers....

You can write in YOUR choice in every category if the person/business YOU want to vote for is not listed....

While voting, I noticed the category Best Local web… Continue

Goodall encourages teens to be instruments of change

Ben's note: I was fortunate enough to be among the group of people Saturday who got to spend some time with Jane Goodall. Here's a story I did for The New Mexican that ran in Sunday's edition. I also had a one-on-one interview with Goodall where she talked of her inspiration for animal welfare -- a neighborhood dog Rusty, whom the family eventually adopted. I hope to write several stories about 'Dr. Jane.' Stay tuned.

Please microchip!

This is an older blog that I am re-posting because of the two dogs my husband and I just pulled out of traffic this id on them and no microchips!

By total coincidence....the two dogs we saved out of pretty heavy traffic were right by Edwina's Coffee House, Miklos....


Blog below is from December 2009:

This is another story as a reminder why microchipping your animals is so… Continue

Happy Ending.

Pagan is home. A gentleman found him and telephoned me to give me directions to his house to pick Pagan up. Other than dirty, and a wee bit leaner, Pagan seems none the worse for wear given his (mis) adventure. Now both he and I can gain some much needed weight.

Thank-you to those that were supportive of Pagan's disappearance; your kind words of encouragement were most appreciated. To the others, well, never mind.

Pagan's Mum.

Come walk dogs this Friday

Do you have a bit of free time on Friday? Maybe you could help us out by walking some of our shelter dogs this Friday between 8am and 1pm?

We have 40 dogs and puppies at the shelter who need nice long walks before they get crated, so even if you just have time to come up and walk one of them, that would be… Continue

1:20 PM Tuesday - Nina Sights Maddison St. Mikes/St. Fran. near Mc D's

Nina from the Espanola Shelter is tracking a dog we believe to be Maddison right now. She has sighted her around the grassy area close to Mc Donald's just off the St. Frances & St. Michaels intersection. She has been spotted in that area before. We think she is living in the mature arroyo that crosses Don Gaspar and comes down into that area to find food. If anyone can call Nina on her cell phone and help, she will track her for as long as she can. Maddison, being true to reports, is not… Continue
