It might a festive, noise-filled holiday for you, but for your pets it's a war zone — one that many want to escape as quickly as possible.
"We encourage pets to be a member of the family," said Bill Hutchison, communications manager with the Santa Fe Shelter & Humane Society, "but pets don't celebrate Independence Day like we do. For them, the bombs bursting in air is just scary."
Noise anxiety, especially on the Fourth of July holiday, causes many pets to do whatever… Continue

This will be short because there are so many more important issues on this discussion board right now.
This is just a heads-up to know what tularemia is (a bacterial infection much like the plague and spread by fleas and ticks and infected meat). My sweet dog Ginger probably has tularemia. We will know for sure when the blood tests come back, but in the meantime they treat as if the animal has the disease. Rounds of antibiotics. But its BEST if you catch it soon. Knowing how the… Continue

Someone I know, we will call her Jane, had bunch of people over to her house, sorta a open house with extended family.
She has two dogs, one hid outside away from all the activity. The older dog (10 years) stayed inside, where he prefers to be. Amidst the activity a young girl sat on the floor and pet the older dog when he suddenly he growled then bit her in the face. She was rushed to hospital for many stitches around her eye. Thankfully she is going to be okay, though weary of dogs I… Continue

With two successful events under their belt the club is riding high. Their holiday event, a fundraiser for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society, was pulled off without a hitch… Continue

Hey it's Kermit here, and I am finally available for adoption. I have been in a foster home for almost a month. I have gained over 20 pounds and now have hair. I can't wait to go to my forever family, but I need to be honest about myself. I am a good boy, but...I am very, very, very active and my favorite pasttime is to chase balls. I would do that all day long if my foster mom would let me. My energy, intelligence and play drive make me a great… Continue

I have a missing Savannah Cat, his name is Ricochet. He is almost 2 years old, he got out last July during a rain storm. He was spotted on Sunlit Drive West a few times. I would appriciate any information on any sightings. He is very thin, grey with dark grey (charcoal) spots. He is very friendly and will growl while eating. His family misses him terribly.

Sometimes it is hard to have a big compassionate heart. If I could, I would probably find a way to help so many more critters than I can right now. So between answering Claudia's call for donated food and blankets and towels for the shelter and Julie's blog about Lucky, I felt compelled to write a bit about animals and their choosing us.
I went in to visit with the dogs yesterday at the shelter when I dropped off some of the food and towels, and was looking to share a little loving… Continue

For those who have lost dogs in the past you may appreciate this story. I've been fostering a dog for about 3 months now and today took her to a potential adopter's home in Tierra Contenta (Airport Road and Country Club). They are a great young couple with another dog and a cat and I felt a GREAT home for this dog. We spent about 30 minutes there and I felt they needed a feel for how she'd do without me there so offered to leave her there for one hour while I ran an errand. That was the first… Continue

The power of ONE with the help of FRIENDS is INCREDIBLE!
Two weeks ago, I sent out the call for food/money donations for the Santa Fe Animal Shelter's Annual Food Drive. Then the Ribera dogs happened, the 80 dogs found in HORRIFIC conditions last Monday, 54 of which ended up at the SFASHS.
Then I REALLY stepped up my pleas for help...
Between actual food donations dropped off at Toy Auto Man and money donations with the donator's request to purchase food on… Continue
