Santa Fe Scoop

August 2011 Blog Posts (28)

Anyone interested in joining in on a peaceful protest against The Shrine Circus in Santa Fe on 9/11/11

My goal is to educate people of the abuse associated with circuses and encourage them to only attend circuses without animals. Anyone interested in joining me to speak for those who suffer without a voice. (especially the elephants) I did create an event here on the scoop, but thought a blog would also be helpful to get the word out and obtain ideas, suggestions and advice...

Originally posted here by the Wildlife Center:


Due to the high number of intakes of animals struggling with the drought, we have been receiving a good deal of positive press.  In addition to the numerous starving bears that are being housed at the off-site facility, we have taken in raptors and other mammals in the same situation.  Here…

Rusty's owner died and he ended up in the pound. Because he was 12-years old no one wanted him. We did and took him into rescue. He found a home, but then, we realized that he had some issues that had probabaly never been addressed by his original owner. Rusty has some separation anxiety and he needs some toileting training. He will go "outside" every-time, but he will also go inside. His family are a working couple and so the dog is in the house during the day (with another dog). As much as…

Inner Peace:

Inner Peace:

If you can start the day without caffeine,

If you can be cheerful, ignoring aches and pains,

If you can resist complaining and boring people with your troubles,

If you can eat the same food every day and be grateful for it,

If you can understand when your loved ones are too busy to give you any time,

If you can take criticism and blame without…

pickin up poop

This is one of my pet peeves: every day at the dog park, one can see bags that lazy people have dropped on the trail...for others to pick up. If you are that lazy, then please do not bother to bag it in the first place. Poop will break down but the bags do not. So save yourself the effort and just leave it.  Eventually one of your maids will do your job for you.

Are Vets Scanning For Microchips?

Are vets scanning for microchips? The vets sell the microchips, but do they make it a practice to scan EVERY new animal patient brought to their office? How can we get vets to make it part of the routine for every new patient?


The happy story of Caesar the Maltese dog returned to his Michigan owners shows that shelters scan for chips. Possibly, the dog might have been recovered sooner.  The Albuquerque Journal reported this:


"Mike Martinez, Animal Control…

Molly – a Success Story

     On Sunday July 24, 2011, I had the good fortune to encounter a friend I haven’t seen for a couple of years. The pleasure was especially sweet because my friend is healthy, happy and successful after going through some very rough times. My friend happens to be a little horse (a pony really) named Molly who under the guidance of trainer Katrin Silva has learned the graceful dance called dressage. It was thrilling to see Molly prance with neck arched, in beautiful, fluid motion. Molly has…
