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.

Join me in wishing… Continue

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

St Bernard at Espanola Valley Humane

Do you or someone you know love St Bernards? Then we have the girl for you! A 102lb, sweet, social female rough coated St Bernard found her way to our shelter this week and is looking for a home. Her name is Cleo and she could use a professional grooming and some TLC, but she is gentle and friendly. We are very short on space here at the shelter right now, so every adoption is life-saving. Adoption fee is $68 and that includes spay, up to date vaccinations and deworm. Please feel free to… Continue

suggestions for stolen yorkies...

Hi, First of all that is discusting and should be charged as kidknapping if caught!! But I want to tell you that putting a daily post and photos on Craigslist really helps, the more info you give about where they are missing from or any clues will help those out there trying to help you... there is a network of people that watch it, and actively participate in helping to bring dogs back home.. persistance pays off!
good luck!

My two Yorkies have been stolen!

My two Yorkies were stolen from my yard on Calle Margarita on Friday, July 17th. There names are Corky (male) and Cozy (female). At the time they were stolen they were due for a hair cut so they may be scruffy looking. Corky has asthma so he wheezes sometimes. Their tan colored kennel was also taken so they may be in that. They were taken once before by a hispanic male approx 5'5" tall. Please, please… Continue

For the past year in New Mexico, I 've been making intricate raven drawings and writing stories to accompany them . My new series, Listening To Raven, has inspired people who never before looked at birds with much curiosity to now bring me stories the way a cat sets a mouse at its owner's feet. Their recognition of life heretofore unexamined develops a personal… Continue

Moose Dog Update HELP!

I have been so sick with this, I don't even know where to start.

Moose has been living with his foster parents, their dog and cat and everybody really hit it off! Yippee, and it seemed he had found a new home with a friend even! They told me of their intentions then a day later.... he pooped in the house (an almost unheard of event) then the same day.... he chased down the Fedex driver and bit his shirt( thankfully just the shirt), then chased the cat. A day later he went for the cat… Continue

Silka/Lulu is Lost

Silka is a tiny white dog weighing 10 lbs. She was lost in the Hickox area by St. Anne's Church. She ran away without her collar when a storm came in and scared her. Please call 501-3258 if you find her or see her. She is very friendly and loving with a curly tail and floppy ears that stand up like Yoda when she hears her name or gets a treat. Please tell all of your friends!

Well, the Cat Came Back!

Well, it's Sunday evening now and the cat came back! What a relief!

Boy is my face red...Marmalade was just hiding out somewhere in the house and finally made an appearance after a verrrrrrrry long nap (like 9 hours!). Just like a kid who falls asleep in the closet and the parents call the police to help them find their child! Yes, the charming Mr. Marmalade strolled into the kitchen, purring and stretching and yawning. No doubt he'll be up all night wanting to play!

As I… Continue

News story from El Paso - lost dog found in Ohio 6 months later

Here's an inspiring story for those with lost pets. The dog was lost in El Paso in January and was found in Ohio last week. I know most dogs aren't microchipped. Even for those that aren't there may be some comfort a "kind" stranger passing through came across the dog and took that dog in and doesn't have the technology or for whatever reason feels the dog is a stray and doesn' t feel the need to find out if the dog is being looked for back… Continue

Mystery in need of a forever home

2 year old Mystery, a Australian/German Shepherd mix (really?) captured my heart and imagination. She is so sweet, outgoing, affectionate, with a fur you will want to bury your nose in. Mystery is just gorgeous and has been at the shelter already 2 weeks. Amazing that nobody has claimed her yet. While we all loved her we had to admit she would have been… Continue
