Kay

3 legs, 2 eyes, 2 ears and one amazing heart… Meet Kay the Stray, a lovely labby girl about 5-7 year old. Kay so endeared herself to the wonderful man that found her, that he couldn’t fathom taking her to a shelter where, regardless of all of her other wonderful attributes, a tripod would almost certainly be put to sleep. While out for a walk with his own dog, her human hero found this special girl wandering alone along the arroyos between Corrales and Rio Rancho. He was immediately concerned for her safety as she would be easy prey for the coyotes, so he brought her back to his place. No tags, no chip…. so with the help of flyers and neighbors, he finally tracked down her home, only to find that it was vacant with no forwarding address. Kay’s new friend tells us that she is very sweet and gets along with other dogs, she is housebroken, and she knows how to use a doggy door. Sadly, the only thing this girl does wrong, is tries to jump the fence and escape… We believe this doggedly determined 3-legged girl is just trying to find her people, but there is no indication that they are trying to find her. As far as we can tell, Kay is ALL heart. Please join us in helping Kay’s human hero to find her a loving home.

TrippThis handsome 7 year old guy is Tripp. Tripp’s owner recently joined the military and his first assignment was 2+ years to a place where his beloved Tripp could not go. We’ve been tasked with finding Tripp a home just as wonderful as he is. Tripp’s owner wants better for his friend than military life with a dad that travels for months and years at a time. Tripp’s owner tells us that he found Tripp as a pup wandering along the railroad tracks and he named him Tripp, which is Scandanavian for wanderer.

Tripp’s grandmother, who travels for work extensively, had this to say about him: “Trip is a gentle, gentle soul.  He loves to eat and will dance and dance when it is dinner time.  He is not hyper at all and would just as soon lay by someones feet all day.  He gets along with ALL dogs and all people.  He is a bit shy but not a lot.  He is the dog that stands in the background if there are a lot of people. He is so sweet.  He loves walks and did jog with my son when he was getting ready for boot camp.  When my son came home on leave, Trip was so happy, like, ‘here is my best friend home finally!’  This breaks our hearts.”

Add to that, Tripp is neutered, housebroken, can use a dog door, knows basic commands, he is not food or toy aggressive, he doesn’t jump to greet, and he is trusted to be alone in the house for hours at a time without issue… WOW! Better hurry if you want to put in an application for this wonderful dog!

Maddie1

1 year old female Madeline (aka Maddie) is in search of a new home where her human doesn’t have to travel for work all the time. Adorable Maddie is a sweet all-around dog who would be a great addition to just about any home. Maddie’s owner has this to say about her: “She is very friendly and loves other dogs. Her best friend is a Chihuahua. She loves her family, kids –she is very much a puppy and very much a Lab –she loves to get out and run when she can and she loves water. She is a good watch dog. Trying to teach her not to jump on you (which she does sometimes when she gets excited)….but overall a great dog. Potty trained –she tells YOU when she needs to go –usually with a paw on the arm. She is a great dog.” Maddie spends most of her time indoors and frequently stays in the house alone for part of the day with no issues and she’s totally house trained. She does OK on a leash and works a bit with a trainer while her human is away on work travels. Her owner did reveal to us that Maddie occasionally pulls the stuffing out of her toys <GASP!!> (We are happy to tell you that this makes her a perfectly normal 1 year old dog). Maddie is spayed, UTD on all vaccines and on heartworm preventative.

BlakeBlake is a beautiful, black, 2 year old male Labrador Retriever- these pictures don’t do him justice. His owner is being forced to move and only has a limited window to find him a home.  He has a great time with older children and adults, but his playful “labbiness” may not be right for smaller children or persons who are not steady on their feet. He thinks that toys are very special things that should be loved and played with often and, true to his Labrador roots,  he also thinks that water is the best invention ever. Blake has cats in his life and his current owner says “he chases them but has never hurt them” (not exactly a vote of confidence). He gets along with other dogs, but he can be selective as far as other male dogs go (for example, he thinks the male Shiz zu in his life is a fine friend, but he’s not such a fan of male Basset Hounds). Blake needs some basic obedience training- he has lived in kennels almost exclusively so he may also need a little work on house manners. Blake is UTD on all vaccines, but has not been heartworm tested. If you have time to invest training a new dog, Blake just needs a little refinement to reach his full potential. He is beautiful and has tons of potential.

Remo and Evie

Meet 7 year old lab/hound cross pups and best buddies Remo (male) and Evie (female). These two dogs love people of all ages, although Evie can be a bit shy around new people until she gets to know them. Evie and Remo are good with other dogs and they are excellent with cats (their other BFF happens to be a cat). Remo’s current owner describes him as extremely loving, gentle, friendly and eager to please. Evie is described as a gentle and friendly girl. Both have been through obedience training and are OK on leashes, except for they have a tendency to pull.  These two dogs have excellent manners- they don’t jump to greet, are not food or toy aggressive and they don’t dig or have issues with separation anxiety. They’re also both spayed/neutered.

Evie and Remo are a bonded pair and have been best friends since they were tiny pups so their owner feels it is important to find them a home together.  Maybe you could arrange to meet these two sweet dogs and see for yourself what a great pair they are!

Shorty10 year old female, Shorty is a sweet, well-mannered Chocolate Labrador Retriever who has found herself in a rather unfortunate and stressful living situation- a kennel at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter. Somehow, even though she’s afraid, she has managed to make the most of her situation by becoming a staff and volunteer favorite, receiving excellent marks on her doggie report card (happy disposition, loves people, enjoys gentle interactions with other dogs). A shelter, though, is no place for a senior pup, so we are hoping a special someone can give Shorty the forever home she deserves. Shorty has some typical senior ailments so she will require a little extra TLC (cataracts, arthritis and diabetes). We would like to point out that, in spite of her medical issues, she is still a bazillion times easier to care for than a puppy: she promises not to bury all your shoes, or to harass you mercilessly for no discernible reason… she will, however, show unlimited gratitude to the kind soul who sees past her ailments and appreciates her wisdom and humility.

Shorty, our paws are crossed for you, Sweet Girl! We hope that an angel will see your beautiful face and take you home and love you for they rest of your dog years. If you are interested in Shorty please contact info is the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society 505-983-4309


“I looked at all the caged animals in the shelter…the cast-offs of human society. I saw in their eyes love and hope, fear and dread, sadness and betrayal. And I was angry. “God,” I said, “this is terrible! Why don’t You do something?” God was silent for a moment and then He spoke softly. “I have done something,” He replied. “I created YOU.” ~ Jim Willis ~
