Fireworks and drought don’t mix, but don’t be surprised this weekend if some people just can’t suppress the urge to celebrate the Fourth.
That means it’s best to safe, not sorry, when it comes to protecting your animal companions.

Several people called or emailed the state veterinary board to lodge complaints against Joan Moreau, veterinarian and owner of the Animal Wellness Center on St. Francis Drive.
Dozens more, including some of her Facebook friends,…
It was strongly suggested I cross post this action alert as a separate post. People are upset and wondering what they can do to stop this practice that is LEGAL in New Mexico as it is in many western states.

It is also extreme cruelty in my book and simply wrong.
Anyhow, off the soapbox, here is a copy of the email message I…Continue

I just spoke to one of the dog-rescue folks up there and she reported that a second fire has broke out in another part of the county that may now present a new threat. Folks who have had to evacuate from the path of the first fire have already taken their pets to the "shelter" (outside of town proper) for safe keeping until the blaze is under control. However, that facility will fill up very fast.....they are already…Continue
