I received the call late Thursday afternoon (3/27/14), from the Rio Rancho shelter about a Pittie girl that had been hit by a car the night before. She had sustained injuries that would have slated her for euthanasia unless rescue was found. A Sandoval County Sheriffs Deputy happened upon her, as did Sandoval County Sheriff […]
Good morning NMDOG friends and family! Time to practice those clicking skills because we need to do just a little bit better to win the Animal Rescue Site’s shelter challenge. We could really use the funds we’ll get if we win to help us continue to work for New Mexico’s Forgotten Dogs. The challenge runs […]
A 2003 50th Anniversary Corvette with only 25K original miles has been donated to NMDOG to raise much needed funds to continue our important work! We will sell ONLY 1000 tickets at $100 each. The drawing will be held at the 2014 NMDOG BARKIN BAD annual car show & fundraiser on May 18th (locations TBD). This is an amazing opportunity! The Dogs WIN!
Goldie found a foster home, but it didn’t last long… Poor Goldie has been in rescue for over TWO YEARS. She recently finally found a foster home to call her own. Unfortunately, this was not to be either. The poor girl is back in boarding even though she did wonderfully in in an actual home […]
We are in the tail-end of winter across the county and in the state of New Mexico. It still gets cold out there, especially at night! Technically by law, all outside dogs must be provided the very minimum of food, water and shelter. Typically, response by individual animal control departments will vary. It is our […]
On 12/30/13, a good Samaritan discovered a plastic bag on the bank of a ditch in Albuquerque’s South Valley. The bag was moving. Someone had tossed a bag of newborn pups out like trash! Five puppies were already dead, and two more were clinging to life. Bernalillo County Animal Care Services CACS responded immediately and […]
The City of Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, the City of Las Vegas, and the Town of Estancia have FREE straw available for pickup by residents for any pets left outdoors during these icy-cold winter months. Straw can mean the difference between life and death for pets left outside…
On August 26th a new animal ordinance went into effect for Bernalillo County, making it illegal to keep an animal chained (they must be fenced in a yard or in a kennel with adequate room for them to play or jump!). Call 468-PETS(7387) if you see a chained dog in Bernalillo County!
The ordinance also contains these provisions: all dogs and cats must be microchipped, animals found twice running loose will be sterilized, and it is now illegal to transport your dog in the open bed of a truck (the animal must be in a kennel or crate secured to the truck). Read the full ordinance at Bernalillo County’s website.
NMDOG could really use some new foster homes. Since we have no shelter facility, we rely 100% on foster homes to house the dogs in our program. Fostering literally saves lives: we currently have a number of dogs out there waiting to be rescued — in desperate need of our help, but we are unable to step up for them because we have nowhere for them to go!
Fostering is fun and fulfilling beyond your wildest dreams. Become part of the solution and consider becoming a foster parent and a valued part of our rescue family today!
