Come Meet our Pets:

We meet prospective adopters in our village near Santa Fe, NM. We do not ever ship dogs, ever. We prefer 'excellent' out of state homes to mediocre in-state homes. Most out-of-state adopters stay for two days nearby (and have gone through previous screenings). There is an excellent B and B very nearby in Chimayo, or many quality hotels/motels in either Santa Fe or Taos.

We evaluate the needs of the propective adopter via email and phone before the meeting.

We check references, and do home-checks.

Our Adoption Process:

We check references, do homechecks, and have a stringent adoption contract.

We do not adopt to homes with small children, unless our adoptive dog would make a good fit.

Fees are on a sliding scale.


Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
