Our beloved dog went missing in Madrid

Pup has been missing since July 1st, 2008. We haven't given up hope of finding him yet. We have had some sightings within the past two months. He may possibly be trying to go in the direction of Cerrillos, Santa Fe, or Albuquerque. He could have traveled quite a distance. He is a black, medium sized Australian Cattle Dog/ Blue Heeler mix with a white patch on his chest. He ran off while we were visiting in Madrid and is not familiar with the local… Continue

Fabulous little foster kittens ready to go home



These two incredibly social 4 month old boys are finally ready for adoption. They originally were left in the Espanola shelter's drop box as tiny babies, then had a few bouts of common kitten issues (fungus, diarrhea, the sniffles). But now they are healthy and very ready to go to their forever homes. They are already neutered, up to date on shots and dewormed. I would love to see them go home together, but will separate them as long as they get… Continue

Lost at the Dog Park

Last night, 8.11.09 just around sunset, a 6 month old black Poodle mix got spooked and ran of like lightening and seemingly never found his way back to his custodian. It was only their 2. visit to the dog park, up on the grate, he wore a red harness and was small, with a distinct face and real cute. Please keep your eye open and report to the shelter if you see or hear of him.

Still Looking for Jackson

This weekend dsidn't turn him up, but I did get soem possible sightings in Eldorado and spent a lot of time ther talkin to folks, getting fliers passed out and following up on leads. Also some sightings around Ellis Ranch Rd/San Sebastian which we went out on.

But no Jackson. People, myself included, seem to think he is ok and someone may be caring for him with other dogs.

This makes sense since he's always been a member of a pack.

Anyway I hope so and will continue to follow… Continue

Eye to Eye with a black bear cub!

On our way to the Big Tesuque Trail, just past the Hyde Park Info Cabin, I noticed a black roly-poly bear cub amble down the hill intent on crossing the road as he notices me in my van approaching in snail tempo, our eyes lock for a moment and the bear turns to run back up the hill. Later the ranger told me they had caught one ferocious black cub the night before, around 11 PM and the one I seen might have been a sibling. I never seen a bear up so close, this powerful wild animal was an amazing… Continue

PLEASE micro-chip your animal children!

With the recent events surrounding Gracie Girl, her disappearance and her subsequent return home, I want to urge everyone to PLEASE micro-chip their animals!



NO, they cannot be tracked by a micro chip and Gracie being chipped (which she wasn’t) wouldn’t have made her be found any sooner….BUT….one of my own personal fears while she was gone was that she was found SOMEWHERE without her collar and NO IDENTIFICATION to get her home. I think it was a minor MIRACLE that, after all those… Continue

Your dog may be smarter than your toddler

This just in: A leading researcher on dog behavior says your family dog may be smarter than a toddler. Psychologists, adapting tests designed for human children, have learned that average dogs can count, reason and recognize words and gestures on par with a human 2-year-old.

The British researcher said the average dog can understand about 165 words, including signs, signals and gestures. They can also count to about 5.

The smartest dogs can recognize up to 250 words -- but not all… Continue

Reed needs a home



This is my foster kitten, Reed. He is a great 3 month-old cat. He loves to ride in the car, sprawled over the headrest. He has Abyssinian markings, including ticked fur, as well as some tabby stripes. He has beautiful big paws, is very intelligent and companionable, likes other kittens and cats (although he is certain that he is superior to all of them!). Very special cat, for the right home. If anyone… Continue

Prayer to Saint Anthony for JAckson & all lost pets

Again tody, much effort in Eldorado, Arroyo Hondom, Sunlit Hills, but nada. However a pray to Saint Anthony that people swear works:

Dear Sant Anthony
Please come down.
There's something lost
that must be found

Amen. I've been saying it all day.

Also, when I had Rufina out in an arroyo looking for Jackson, someone stooped to pray with/for me. It is wonderful how people extend themselves. Terri
More tomorrow.

J]Jackson Running with Coyotes. What to do????

I just had a call from a women in Canada de los Alamos who swears she saw Jackson today running with a pack of coyotes.
I said I'd go over in the morning and hike around, as she said the coyote is a regular around her house.

JOKO has been neutered....

Hi folks,



The dog, Joko, has been neutered and is up-to-date on all his shots - thank you Santa Fe Animal Shelter!. He is a LOVE, sticks his big 'ol head right in your lap and looks up at you with these warm brown eyes! Young dog, but fully a year old (as per vet assessment) will make someone a kind and loyal friend.



Good with other dogs, small dogs, cats and children. He is currently in Santa Fe, boarding, being supported by Babes & Bullies and Dew Paws Rescue. Please… Continue

Claudia's birthday surprise

Nita loves to be a part of the celebration.



Who says you can't surprise Claudia, Scoop's No. 1 supporter and a dedicated guardian to many animals? It's her birthday today, so Cindy, whose loving attention to animals is equally well-known, decided to surprise her. Here's a few photos of the event.

Naturally Stephen had to be on guard just in case the candles got carried away.

The final weeks of the Clovis Animal Shelter Gas Chamber

In April, I answered a Craigslist ad looking for animal transporters between Santa Fe/ABQ and Clovis. A small group of individuals involved in animal rescue groups had taken it upon themselves to rescue as many animals as possible from the Clovis Shelter gassing. “Didn’t they pass legislation banning that in the last legislative session?” I asked. Yes, but the law was not scheduled to go into effect until June 19, so those poor unfortunate ones that landed in the shelter after the law was… Continue
