Help for the coastal cleanup is but a bottle away

I am collecting bottles of DAWN the one with a seal on the bottle. When you buy a bottle a dollar goes and has for many many years for coastal seabird and animal clean up. Now is the time to buy a bottle and then donate same to me at the Sat. Farmer's Market and I am in contact with several environmental groups, fed ex and ups.

for free or low cost transport to many of the coastal areas being impacted or soon to be impacted by BP's carelessness. Hurricane season is upon us so timing is… Continue

Is that an egg in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

There's a new raven lurking in the lavender. How do I know? He's bigger and more cautious than my regulars,who swoop in to check a few times a day to see if I've put out uncooked chicken eggs.

The newbie, watching to see if the egg is really available, is stalking amidst the sweet-scented purple flowers, flying up to land on the creviced rock fountain, then back to the bushes.

Now he's on the rock, head swinging back and forth to see if he's alone. Ah ha! He's picked up the prize in… Continue

An interview with Nathan Winograd

This is an extremely interesting interview with Winograd about why we kill so many animals every years. I hope that every shelter manager in NM (and the other 49 states) read it.…

Dog Holding at the Farmers Market

To me it makes all the sense in the world to take dogs along on errands. They usually love going out about, it is good for their exercise quota and socialization - and ours. So taking the dogs for a stroll to the Farmers Market especially before it gets too hot, now that summer is quickly approaching, is just great, except for our laws that absolutely do not allow us to leave a dog tethered anywhere any time in public places within the city limits. I really am not a fan of laws, of which we… Continue

Rottweiler needs home

Hi everyone.

A family here in Santa Fe has a 1 year old intact male Rottweiler. He's a sweet dog, but they haven't been able to train him well, so he's a little out of control, but not at all mean. They are adamant (of course) that he goes to a caring family where he can be the well trained sweet dog he's meant to be. They've already turned down a friend who wasn't talking about having a rottweiler in a way they cared to hear. If anyone knows of a good home for a dog that needs some… Continue

GREAT information from Nina at the Espanola Shelter!

This came from Nina from the Espanola Animal Shelter this morning, it is very valuable information:

(The photo was added by me)


Please remind people to remember our shelter (and all the others in a 100 mile radius- Taos, Las Vegas, Rio Rancho, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Los Alamos, Bernalillo) when making lost dog reports.

Sometimes people passing through the state do not know where one shelter or the other is,… Continue

Sugar, Sugar, Sugar will you be mine?

Sugar is a small terrier mix female dog who was rescued from a death-row situation from one of our animal control facilities. She is 24 pounds with a dark brindle coat, amazing ears, a sweet face, and is just waiting to go home with you! Sugar has been spayed, is up to date on all her shots and HW negative. She can present as a little shy (not always) but warms up nicely, seems to get along with other dogs - fine - once they are introduced and allowed to hang out a little, she is a great rescue… Continue

Feds Issue Scathing Report on USDA Kennel Inspections

This is from Philly Dawg

We're lucky in NM that we don't have a horrendous problem with millers. It seems to be luck, though, and not any rules and regs that keep them from coming here. But that doesn't mean we don't have probelms and that every animal owner… Continue

Las Vegas 11

Dear Everybody, Mid February we pulled 11 dogs slated for death from the Las Vegas City Shelter. We had several people interested in fostering and a boarding kennel in Tierras ready to help. We placed the dogs in Z Pet Hotel in Santa Fe for what we believed would be 3-7 days. Three of dogs did leave in 2 days. Some took a week. One sad dog was discovered to have been beaten so badly in the past, he had inoperable bone spurs on the vertebrae of his neck and spinal column. This was discovered… Continue

Dog Boarding

I was wondering if anyone can recommend a cage free boarding area in Santa Fe or Albuquerque. I have been taking my 2 goldens to the facility on Northfork in Santa Fe for the past year. Unfortunately, my 8 year old was injured there last week. This is the second time one of my dogs have been injured while being boarded there. The first injury required 20 stitches on my 2 year old, and this time it was a very nasty puncture wound that abscessed. So I have spent over $400 in vet bills. I have… Continue

The Horse Shelter, May 22, 2010

So many things have been going on at The Horse Shelter that I have fallen behind in my reporting. Several new horses have arrived. First I must introduce you to Mesa. He came to The Horse Shelter with a bandage on his neck after being treated for an abscess. The vet (Dr. Callahan) examined Mesa on Friday and he is doing fine. Can you believe that he is four years old? Dr. Callahan says that his diminutive stature is due to genetic background plus extreme malnutrition.… Continue
