Help Bambi get his FHO surgery!


Bambi was adopted from the Espanola Valley Humane Society, and when the adoption didn't work out, he came back to us this year. But unfortunately, this guy needs an FHO surgery due to injuries sustained some time in the past. With the help of Luvin' Labs, we are trying to raise the funds to get this guy…

Sighting of a dog on the run!

About 6:30 PM Easter Sunday on Romero Street, a little brown dog with ears sticking up, could easily be mistaken as a bunny from afar, dodged oncoming anybody (people, cars, dogs) and headed towards Aqua Fria. Every time he got sight of me it ran like hell! Sure hope this dog finds it's home before it is met with any harm.

Nekida will go to Fur and Feathers, Dahtal, NM for now. 

Laurie Beaucamp has agreed to take her, run her with an appropriate dog-pack for fun, exercise and rehabilitation.  This girl will make someone a wonderful dog, but she needs to have the correct program for her age and level of energy.  Laure said she has a red-nosed, white, staffy boy for her to play with!!

Astrology for Animals and Humans

To All good Dog and Cat (and Horse, Goat, Bird, Lizard, Snake, Ferret, and Other Amazing Creatures) Companion Humans, I have gotten the message from Maeve and Other Heavenly Animals in High to offer astrology charts for enlightened animals and their good humans. A big portion of this financial exchange will go toward "The Maeve Fund" veterinary treatment for rescue animals. Also, I really want to give back. Your kindness around Maeve's passing has been life affirming for me. I have been a…

Aloysius Makes The Big Time

Please see Aloysius’ enchanting mug in the front page, yes, THE FRONT PAGE, of The New Mexican today,Thursday April 14, 2011. Aloysius, due to his humble and refined character, took his new status of fame with gratitude yet perplexity. He certainly is not used to a life of fortune, up until now. The human, however, is really excited. This exposure could bring to Aloysius his true adoring human! Thank you so much Ben. Aloysius is being boarded at Braemarr Kennels, 906 Old Las Vegas…

March 23 to April 13 - 3 weeks for Nekida

Nekida is 3-weeks in kenneling now, she is alive, fed, medically vetted, and cared for in the basic ways.  She is also nervous and depressed in the kennel environment.  So what do we do?  How long can she stay there? Transport to possible other rescue organizations is a logistics nightmare.  Some other Pit specific rescues require a huge intake sum.  Some have not bothered to respond.  Others, though willing, may not actually have the space/set up for a large, young and energetic…

Boy looks for lost lamb

Jacinto Martin, 12, is a hard-working 4-H kid from Nambe who saved up $800 over the last two years to buy two well-bred lambs to show at the county fair this summer. Over the weekend, strong winds blew open their barn doors and loose neighborhood dogs got into the lamb pens. One lamb, a little male, was torn up but lived. The other, a little female, escaped and took off through the hills. The family tracked her to the little Nambe bridge where tire and human tracks mixed with hers. They…

Ode and Jax are two young and handsome Staffordshire Terriers (Actually Jax is half Black Lab) that are about to loose their safe haven.

Both are crate, leash,…

Genius Chihuahua Needs Serious Relationship


Tuck is a 2 year old black and tan Chihuahua, maybe Min-Pin, mix. He is alert, very loyal, incredibly smart, and Clark Gable handsome. ( An ordered yet dashing look.) Tuck is a complex character. He desires and deserves an ongoing and aware relationship. He is not really a "pet". He asks for understanding and soul searching of his real human. He will not flower as a"cute little dog". As his foster human for past three months, I have learned a lot from Tuck. I have learned about…
