Buster greets each day with his BFF and with gratitude in his heart for a loving home and no more chains! We are so grateful to his amazing Mom that stuck with Buster through thick and thin, loving him unconditionally while he learned to be a good boy. Good job Buster! Kisses from the NMDOG […]
“Yes we are full. No, we really can’t take on another kiddo at this time. Yes, ok we will take her, go get that baby!!” Rescue is a rollercoaster… The 911 situation: a puppy chained in a very dangerous area, available to the first person with $100. This is never a good thing… So we […]
Our girl Goldie has now been in rescue for nearly THREE YEARS and the need to find her a (foster) home has now reached critical proportions… We first met Goldie when she was at the Las Vegas, NM shelter, and when her time ran out there our sister rescue, the Animal Welfare Coalition of Northeastern […]
When NMDOG first took over the storage yard next to an autobody/ junkyard, the very first thing we noticed were the dogs. Tethered to the common fence was a chow named Oso and tied to the axle of a truck was a pup named Raina. So… we walked over and politely introduced ourselves… Initially, the […]
PIPER is one of the sweetest dogs in the word. She recently had hip-surgery and is in URGENT need of a post-op foster: a soft place to land and heal as an only dog. She has dog friends at the kennel, and she is fine interacting with other dogs for short periods of time, but […]
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!
