Shelter participates in Community Day

The Santa Fe animal shelter is joining Hillside in celebration of its annual Community Day.

The shelter’s mobile adoption team will bring adoptable animals to the event, which runs from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday, May 24, at the artist’s market, 86 Old Las Vegas Highway, just north of Harry’s Roadhouse.

The second annual Community Day features music, storytelling, art making and helpful tips from the Hondo Volunteer Fire Department, along with cooking demonstrations and healing arts talks.

Hillside opened its doors in July 2012 with a mission of fostering sustainable living through collaborating with local artists. The market has helped support more than 85 local artists along with several local organizations to help broaden community support.


Horse Shelter sets annual luncheon

The Horse Shelter’s annual auction luncheon will be held Sunday at the nonprofit’s ranch.

The annual event takes place at noon and features the shelter’s horses, live music, a catered lunch by Restaurant Martin and silent and live auctions. The luncheon is held in a tent at the Cerrrillos-area ranch. Tickets for the event are $75.

The shelter currently cares for more than 74 abused, neglected and abandoned horses. The annual fundraiser support the shelter’s efforts to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome horses. The continuing drought, high hay prices and a recovering economy all contribute to the current plight of horses in New Mexico. Organizers say that for every horse adopted from the shelter, five or more need placement. “We can only keep helping these horses with the continued support of the community,” event organizers said in an email.

For more information about the event or to reserve tickets, visit the shelter’s website at or call 471-6179.
