Just a reminder that PetravelR™ is spotlighting the Santa Fe Animal Shelter on Adopt a Friend. Today we are featuring some of their wonderful animals who are waiting for forever homes, maybe with you!
If you have made the careful decision to bring a companion animal into your life, chances are that the Santa Fe Animal Shelter has a dog, cat, kitten, puppy, ferret, rabbit, guinea pig, or other fuzzy critter that will match your home and lifestyle. Here are just a few of them.
Janey is a very gentle and sweet 8 year old white and tan Pointer mix. She weighs 50 lbs. Janey came to us as a stray and is looking to go to her new loving home. She gets along with other dogs and staff and walks very well on leash, but if you have another dog now, please bring him/her in for a meet and greet.
Rogue is a beautiful black American Pitbull terrier who is now available for adoption. She currently weighs 60 lbs and is 6 years old, and is spayed. She is now looking for a new home. Come by the shelter and spend some time with this girl.
Jessie Belle is a 7 year old female Poodle mix, and is full grown at about 13lbs. She came to the shelter with her buddy Cisco when their owner, a disabled veteran, could no longer care for them. Jessie Belle is very lively and sweet and wants to share her love with you.
Ozzie is a very playful young Mastiff-Pit Bull blend, who is currently helping our behavior staff in introducing shy dogs to play groups. He is a beautiful black and white boy, who is ready for a new and loving permanent home.
Max & Maya
Max & Maya are a lovely lop house rabbit pair! Maya is the smaller, more adventurous, outgoing bunny while Max is the larger, more reserved/cautious one. Maya allows herself to be held once she knows you, whereas Max prefers his feet firmly on the ground. Nudging is Maya’s way of communicating when she wants attention & Max will ‘thump’ when alarmed. Both are litter-box trained & used to living as free-ranging house rabbits. Maya arrived with a broken leg which shelter vets splinted for 6 weeks & then underwent physical therapy. She now gets around perfectly fine & Max is usually nearby. Bonded rabbits should never be separated since they bond for life.
Really & Thumper
Really & Thumper are a wonderful bonded pair of rabbits. Really is a spayed female, white and black shorthair and Thumper is a neutered male, black and white Dutch. Really & Thumper are on the timid side, but with the right calm indoor situation & lots of tender loving care, they’ll come around in time. They need a roomy bunny condo to live in and are already litter-box trained.
Coco is an 8 month old gentle, somewhat shy spayed house bunny with super soft chocolate brown fur. She’d like to find a quiet, indoor home where she will be loved and pampered the rest of her days by kind caretakers. She’ll need spacious indoor x-pen housing to live in since she’s a large bunny & at least 3+ hours of daily exercise time in your rabbit-proofed home.
Chandler is a 4 year old white and tan domestic short hair cat. He came to the Shelter as a stray, and seemed to have gotten into quite a scuff. Our amazing vet staff has taken care of him and is now looking for a safe and loving home. He is quiet and friendly and would love to go home with you.
Mystic is a sweet 8 year old kitty who has a beautiful black and gold coat. She is a big girl, weighing almost 15 lbs, but she would still love a chance to nap on your lap as your new forever pal. SHE GETS ALONG WELL WITH DOGS AND OTHER CATS and would thrive in a home with another pet.
Rapunzel is a 10 year old brown tabby domestic short hair. This little Tiger Stripe weighs about 10 lbs and came to us from the Albuquerque Shelter to find a new home in Santa Fe.
Arturo the gerbil is definitely an interesting newcomer. He is smart, healthy, friendly, and inquistive. He can be an interesting and fun addition to your home.
Lyle is a medium sized fresh water turtle that came to the shelter from California.

Partnered with the community, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter is working for change in the lives of companion animals and to end the suffering of all animals.
