Facts about River

  • Breed: Rat Terrier
  • Color: Unknown
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 10640876

River was found dumped in a front yard in Los Lunas.  She had puppies in the front yard and then owners of the home took her and the puppies to Valencia County Animal Shelter.  But a very kind volunteer/foster for PACA took them all in and has lovingly looked after the whole brood until they were ready to go to their forever homes. 

She is a rat terrier.  She has been a good mommy to her puppies.  She is very sweet and takes a little bit to warm up to you.  And seems to prefer women to men.  But once she gets to know you she loves attention.

About PACA (People’s Anti Cruelty Association / Albuquerque Animal Rescue)

About Our Rescue Group...

People’s Anti Cruelty Association / Albuquerque Animal Rescue (PACA), a No-Kill rescue group, was founded in 1973. Our main mission is to rescue, rehabilitate, and rehouse homeless dogs and cats. PACA has no shelter facility and relies on an organized network of foster parents who graciously take animals into their homes and hearts until permanent homes are found.

Donate to Our Rescue Group... We also gratefully accept your new and gently used donations of cat food, dog food, leashes, collars, toys, food dishes, treats, cat litter, pet beds and other items to make our foster animals feel right at home!
