Story
Stella was adopted from a farm when she was 12 weeks old. She is a double Merle dog which makes her very unique. She is very light in color and wears sunscreen in the summer. She sometimes has health issues with her eyes but nothing major. I live in an apartment, I cannot afford a place with a yard; I know this is not the ideal situation for Stella who is never able to get all of her energy out. I am entering grad school and the time I have available is not enough to give Stella the life she deserves. It would be ideal for Stella to live with children.

Story
Lilly is a loving and gentle soul who found herself in need of a new home through no fault of her own. She was dearly loved by her previous owner, who sadly had to surrender her due to declining health. Lilly`s transition to the shelter has been a bit overwhelming for her, but her resilient spirit and friendly nature shine through despite the changes.Lilly is a true sweetheart who adores people and craves companionship. She is exceptionally friendly and has a gentle demeanor that instantly puts people at ease. Lilly is well-mannered and was housebroken in her previous home, a testament to her intelligence and eagerness to please. She enjoys spending time with her human friends, whether it`s going for leisurely walks, cuddling on the couch, or simply enjoying each other`s company.

Story
PLUTO is a curious semi-feral dog who likes other dogs. With humans, he'll sniff your hand through a fence, but if there's no fence, he keeps a short distance. He is a sweet dog. While he's getting to know you, he'll be fine in a secure yard with housing and hanging out with you. As you progress in your bond to each other he'll make his way into living in the house with you. He's a diamond in the rough, he's sweet. He needs a hero - a human that will commit to him and gain his confidence and bond with him. When he was a puppy, a human poisoned his fur brother and fur grandmother. He is wary of some humans because of this. He has many dog friends - Koda and Arby of two of his bff's. His adoption fee includes his neutering, vaccines, deworming, microchip. He was born on a reservation one and a half years ago. We are still Covid-cautious and have specific adoption and Covid rules listed below. Revised adoption policyDue 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 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 Abq, Santa Fe, Los Alamos, White Rock and Rio Rancho areas. No out of area adoptions inquiries please. 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 replying 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!February 26, 2024, 4:29 pm

Let`s make Dante`s dreams come true – adopt your new best friend today!Dante is a handsome 2-year-old mixed-breed fellow. He came to SFAS when his guardian could no longer care for him/as a stray/as a transfer from another shelter and he is now ready for a new family. If you have other dogs at home, we encourage you to bring them along for a Meet n` Greet. He is neutered and microchipped and has age-appropriate vaccinations. A licensing/microchip fee may apply. Santa Fe Animal Shelter is proud to partner with GoodPup! Dogs learn best in familiar, comfortable environments with few distractions, so GoodPup training happens at home.

I adopted Jackson in around August of 2021 from the Bernalillo County Animal Shelter to be my second dog. He is lovable, cuddly, and sweet. He loves affection, cuddling, and being right next to you. He is very attentive and comes on command. I have crate trained him successfully in the past. When we leave the house he occasionally has some mild separation anxiety which is exhibited by jumping at the windows. He is in good health and has been well fed. We are looking to rehome him only because of busy work schedules and no longer able to work from home. He is an adorable handsome pup that loves a good belly rub.

Story
If it's a new start you're thinking about, I have just the answer for you: Me! I can't wait to begin my life with someone like you who loves to get outside and have fun. We could hike and play and Maybe we could stop by for an ice cream on our way home? The folks here have commented on my striking good looks and my willingness to learn. How about we begin anew together? I'll be ready as soon as you say, "Yep, he's the one!"A team member notes: I spent time with Crash in his room. Last week he was very rowdy. This week he was well-behaved. He is REALLY motivated by treats and may learn quickly; I used a clicker. He eagerly sat and lay down for treats. His "down" is really cute: he usually has his front legs crossed and his rear legs stretched out behind him.AsPCA Meet Your Match - GREEN LIFE OF THE PARTY Primary Color: Black Secondary Color: White Weight: 64 Age: 2yrs 2mths 4wks
