My story

Sweet ROLLO POLLO is very affectionate and playful :-) He loves his toys and grass and being petted and hugged. He is fostered and has playdates with Hooper and Aiden. He is partially DEAF. Deaf dogs blend well into family life and a great website to learn about having a deaf dog in the family is deafdogsrock.com We've adopted many deaf pups to wonderful families and they live full happy lives :-)

His adoption fee includes his neutering, vaccine series, rabies, deworming, flea/tick prevention and microchip. He was born on a reservation we work with January 2021.

** Do you live in our adopting area? (Abq, Santa Fe, Rio Rancho , Los Alamos areas) ** Do you have another young playful friendly dog of similar adult size? Or would you possibly consider adopting him with his bff Aiden or Hoop? **

We have specific ADOPTION and COVID rules listed below.

Revised adoption policy
Due to Covid -19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, we've revised our adoption policy.

First, please email (desertpawsnm@gmail.com) to inquire before you fill out the online application to see if the pet is still available. (Please do not call or text). We'll send you a link to the application.

We are unable to do multi-dog/cat meetgreets or adoption events at this time or bring multiple animals to your house to choose from, so please only inquire if you're serious about adopting this particular animal. If you're just shopping around with several shelters and rescues, please let us know this.

If your application is approved (which 'could' take up to one week) then we will contact you to set up a Zoom chat or ph call to answer questions/clarify anything and set up a day/time to bring the pet to you.

Since we can't come into the home/yard due to Covid-19, we ask that you send us pics /video of your home/yard/living area/current pets.

We will discuss with you about meeting your other pets. At the meeting/adoption at your house (outside) please wear a mask (as will we), keep to a properly distanced social distance and have hand sanitizer and your own leash.

We adopt locally to Central Abq, Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Rio Rancho. No out of area adoptions inquiries please. No young children for our adoptions please. Puppies MUST adopt to families that have another young friendly playful dog of similar breed size when grown.

The animals are fostered and our foster families like to know their fosters are happy, healthy, and cared for during their lifetime. We appreciate staying in touch periodically (just a pic, holiday card, social media, pics/videos etc will make our work worthwhile :-))

Our volunteers and adoption board are working diligently with an overload of inquiries since Covid to match families and forever pets. Our workload on the reservations has also increased. We're sorry, but if you email us with questions that are already answered here or fill out an application that does not fit the parameters of our procedures we will not be able to reply to you. Thank you for your understanding on this!

Thank you - we look forward to hearing from you and having another furbaby united with a furever family!

More about this rescue

We work with the animals at three local Indian tribes (pueblos). We have a spay/neuter called, Door2Door, we assist animals with medical emergencies, prevention, education. We rehab and re-home the unwanted, abandoned, and neglected. At the time of adoption, we bring the pet to your home to make sure all family members including all fur babies get along and all are onboard and committed to the pet. We have an adoption process and we like to stay in touch with the families for the life of the pet.
