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!
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.
