We rescue dogs and cats in the Santa Fe, New Mexico area and also take care of two cat colonies.
This is mostly a one-person operation of caring for at least twenty animals at all times, plus colonies of cats. I have a 501(c)(3) designation but donations are small. It costs at least $15,000 a year (of the organizer's own money) for food, medical care and other expenses of caring for rescued animals. We are very upset to have to turn down an animal! The organizer has a full-time job and would like to be able to hire some help or be able to offer food for foster homes. The cats in the colonies are not only fed, spayed or neutered; they are brought home and can choose to stay in a home if they like. Any donation - money, food, litter - is much appreciated!! Thank you.
Come Meet our Pets:
You can call me (Janet) at (505) 983-6835 to make an appointment to meet the animals. Occasionally we join other rescue groups in Santa Fe for adoption days at various locations around Santa Fe.
Our Adoption Process:
The normal adoption fee is $80. Sometimes sibling pets can go for a combination fee. If we are helping another organization get an animal adopted, they may have a different fee. The contract says you will care for the animal for life and not abandon him or her to a shelter, that you have the means to pay for medical treatments. You may return the pet within fifteen days or for any emergency reason, but not for the sake of convenience.
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, adopting
a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats
for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder?
When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs
and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of
dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed
is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten
breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes.
So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat
or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt
a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane
society or pet rescue group.
