Española Humane Pets Of The Week


ESPAÑOLA, N.M. — Each week the Valley Daily Post features a few pets that are ready for adoption at the Española Valley Humane Society. Take a look at this week’s highlighted pets and then drop by the shelter to see the whole selection.



Tadpole found his way to our shelter with a broken, dangling front leg. We aren’t sure what happened to him, we just knew he needed our help quickly because he had lost a lot of blood. Our veterinary team amputated the leg and treated him for infection, and now this tripod is good as new! Despite his rough start in life, Tadpole is an absolute lovebug; the adoption fee for this friendly and handsome 1-year-old neutered, microchipped, and vaccinated male kitty is waived!


Tigger the Tiger says, “Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb, but how well you bounce.” Yes indeed, that saying is true for this Tigger puppy too – and he has bounced back with the best of them! This young shepherd mix was likely hit by a car, which ruptured his abdominal wall and pushed his organs and intestines up into his lung cavity. Our medical team did major emergency surgery to put things back where they’re supposed to go, stitched the abdominal wall back together, and now this miracle boy is ready for a new adventure. He’s starting to gently play and will need a bit more quiet time, but soon enough he will be bouncy trouncy flouncy pouncy fun fun fun Tigger! His adoption fee is $50, which includes neuter, microchip, up to date vaccines, and six months of heartworm prevention.
