Pets Of The Week
Week of July 29- Aug 4

ESPAÑOLA — Each week the Valley Daily Post features a few pets that are ready for adoption.  The Española shelter had a succesful annual Kitten Fest last weekend in Santa Fe, where their mobile adoptions coordinator adopted out 67 cats and kittens in two days!  

Take a look at this weeks highlighted pets and then drop by the shelter to see the whole selection

Munchkin & Moose
Munchkin and Moose came in together as strays. They seemed to be an unlikely pair, but they soon surprised our staff by displaying a deep bond with one another. We would like to get them adopted as a pair to the same home. Munchkin, a Chihuahua mix, is approximately 6 years of age and although he is smaller than Moose h is definitely large and in-charge in his heart, and makes it known who the alpha is. He is very affectionate and loves attention from our staff, volunteers, and Moose. He is neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated and is ready for adoption today. Moose, an Australian cattle dog mix, is approximately one year of age. Moose wants to play, play, play! He is full of energy, but responds well to correction and wants to please everyone. He is neutered, micro-chipped, and vaccinated and ready to go to home with you and Munchkin. We are waiving the adoption fees to a qualified applicant for the pair to be rehomed together, we do require heartworm prevention is purchased for each of them during adoption, $20 each for a six month supply.

Clint was brought in by a good Samaritan that had seen him in the area and was concerned that he was sick. Clint was sick and it was determined that the best course of action was to remove his right eye when the doctor performed his neuter surgery. We are happy to report that Clint is recovering quickly and adapting to the loss of his eye and is now ready to find his forever home. Clint would be better suited for a home without small children.  He is approximately 6 years of age and has been neutered micro-chipped and vaccinated. His adoption fee has been waived to a good home.
