Week of 3/19/12 Humane Happenings

by Eliana Aubin

Jim Seery and Foxy Girl

 This week and until the end of the month when his commitment to Desert Haven Animal Refuge is over, DHAR work camper Jim Seery is generously offering to cover half the adoption fee of either Shadow or Foxie Girl, should the right forever home becomes available to one of the two girl-dogs before he leaves the area.

 Shadow is an affectionate female Black Lab who came to Desert Haven as a very young pup several years ago, after being discovered by accident imprisoned inside an all-enclosed out-of-the- way storage yard. Her rescuers believed that the small pup had been thrown over the 7 foot fence and simply abandoned there to die.

Shadow is no longer a puppy, although she often thinks she still is. She wants her very own companion and her very own place in the Sun. Foxie Girl is a gorgeous female boxer who loves attention and who would also make a fun-loving and loyal family dog. Perhaps not even two years old now, Foxie was rescued at the sanctuary last year at this time. If interested in either one of the two girl-dogs, visit the sanctuary on a Tuesday or call 575-497-0168 for an appointment.
The latest canine rescues have now settled in Dog Town and met all the other furry residents there. Bobby is a gorgeous five year old King Charles Cavalier with excellent manners. His human companion – an older senior who took him into his home and his heart as a puppy – was heartbroken when he recently had to give him up. Bobby thrives around people and he enjoys canine playmates. The little guy would make someone a wonderful companion.

Among other canines of various breeds and sizes living at Dog town, there is three years old twenty-five lbs Rosie, a terrier mix with a very happy disposition. There is also seven years old, eleven lbs Sally the shy Miniature Pinscher - ten months old Fergie the quiet Terrier-Chihuahua mix - Jewel is a Pomeranian-with-personality. Tiffany is a tiny two years old Terrier-Chihuahua mix. Bobby and Zena are young Cocker Spaniel siblings. They have been sterilized, their shots are up-to-date. They are ready for adoption.

 A male Pekinese and a female Boston Terrier need a new home. They can be adopted locally directly from their owner’s home. Contact 915-319-9088. The Adopt-a-Pet-Referral program is one of our animal welfare organization’s service oriented programs offered totally free of charge to pet owners wanting to relinquish their animals directly from their home.

 This week’s wish list: dog walkers and kitty cuddlers at Desert Haven. Helpers at Paws & Claws Thrift Shoppe. Contact us at 575-894-1694 or e-mail us at weR4pets@gmail.com.Check us out at www.DesertHavenAnimalRefuge, at www.Facebook.com/deserthaven.
