There are folks in Sierra County who care about animals, but they are not sure how to contribute to their welfare. The following are some of the actions that we can take to impact the lives of animals in Sierra County, in our own communities, in our respective neighborhoods. Be on the alert for a stray dog walking in the street for example. Perhaps he has lost his way, or someone abandoned him. That animal needs someone’s help. Let it be you. Keep an eye out and report animal abuse when you see it. Contact the local law enforcement agency. You can remain anonymous when you do so. If you wish to learn the laws regarding animal abuse in New Mexico, you can check right on the web site: www.aspca.org/reportcruelty.
There is always a way for someone to make a difference in the lives of companion animals in your little corner of the world. You can volunteer at Desert Haven Animal Refuge for example. The resident dogs and cats always enjoy the special attention. Any little thing that you do for animals, either at the no-kill sanctuary or in your own neighborhood, is a huge contribution to animals. Just because you cannot do everything you would want to do, you can do something. No action on your part is too small to make the life of these creatures a little brighter. Perhaps even your own lives can be a little brighter by contributing to the happiness of companion animals down-on-their-luck.
This week’s wish list for Desert Haven: dry dog and cat food - carpet remnants - rigid insulation to insulate our pump house - Heavy duty 75ft long water hose - Plywood pieces of all sizes – brooms & scrub brushes.
