Would you take in a dog who has bitten? Help

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

I need a home!

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 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.

Forever homes and understanding soul companions

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

Amazing story of lost dog finding her way home today in Santa Fe

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...

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

Found: Yellow Dog 6/1 Camino del Monte Rey & St Francis Area

She was at the shelter. A very kind woman picked her up running in traffic on St Francis, and took her to the shelter.

The shelter's new website is fabulous - her photo was online immediately, so we saw that she was there and went and picked her up. Thanks for everyone's help.

Help the Ribera dogs

Heather Ferguson says she has a strong stomach. As an animal-welfare activist on the front line of saving animals, she should have one. Ferguson, of Animal Protection of New Mexico, has been on countless raids and rescues — from puppy mills to cockfighting venues. But when she saw the state of dozens of dogs at a home in Ribera Monday morning, even she had to turn away to catch her breath. Entering the mobile home, Ferguson says she saw limbs… Continue

Savannah Cat

I lost a beautiful Savannah cat last November. People have told me to give up hope, but I have a strong feeling that my cat is still out there, alive and active. He has a tan back coat and dark spots. He has a distinctive black nose and big ears. He is a very good hunter and has excellent survival skills. He was lost in the Las Campanas area, but Savannahs have been know to travel far and to somehow find a way back home after months and even years.

If you have seen a cat like this… Continue

Orphan Filly

A beautiful filly named Pippi Longstocking was born in April and arrived at The Horse Shelter on May 16, 2009. Her mother died just five days after she was born, so she has been drinking baby horse formula out of a bowl. The good news is that she is doing fine! She has started eating hay too and is getting to know some of the other horses at The Horse Shelter. Baby horse formula is expensive, so if you are interested in helping Pippi, please contact The Horse Shelter at (505) 471 - 6179,… Continue

Found Foxhound puppy in Pecos

(pictures coming soon)

On Monday, May 25, my sister rescued a beautiful, sweet, emaciated Foxhound female near the Pecos Monument.

She is currently at my mother's house (sister was visiting from out of state) where she is comfortable, eating, sleeping and acting very very sweet.

My parents do not have an acceptable place to foster her as this little girl will surely make escape and will not be very happy staying in the laundry room. They have cats and this girl perks… Continue

Abandoned B&W Pointer at Dog Park?

I was at the Franklin Miles dog park today from 10:30-12 and there was a black and white male (neutered?) Pointer with no collar wandering around seemingly desperate to find his owner. I tried catching him, tempting him with chicken strips with no luck. He was hanging out at the top of the hill, then the parking lot, then hiding in the sagebrush on the edge of the parking lot. Hopefully the owner has returned to the park and picked him up by now, but… Continue

Kermit's latest trial: Finding a home

The plump dark bullet shooting after a ball in the shelter’s dog park one recent weekday bears little resemblance to the starving canine found roaming the highway south of Madrid in March.

A soft sheen of black fur now covers the skin where ribs once protruded. A strong wind no longer threatens to topple over the once-tittering, malnourished dog.

Most people watching Kermit endlessly catch and retrieve a tennis ball would only… Continue

Urgent help needed:


I am forwarding you the first of several emails from Nina at the Espanola Animal Shelter. They have four eight-week old greyhound-cross pups and the pups are SHORT ON TIME!

Does anyone know of a group, an adopter, a foster...ANYONE who can take one or more (hopefully all) of these babies? This is a desperate situation.

Please forward to EVERY PET LOVER YOU KNOW!

Lucky needs some help

I'm looking for someone who'd be interested in fostering or adopting Lucky. She's from the Espanola Valley Humane Society. An interested person would need to complete a quick foster application before the Shelter would agree to transfer. I recently adopted a dog and found out this week she has heartworms and now needs 6 weeks of no activity which will be more challenging since my dog and Lucky love to play (local shelters test for heartworm but for… Continue
