Little Tomi has earned her position of Official Greeter for every visitor at the Cool Cat Neighborhood. Of course, just like all the furry residents of the sanctuary, little Tomi is sterilized and her shots are up to date. We try very hard to insure that all our little rescues are adopted out to caring responsible individuals or families. People who want a pet on a whim and who are not truly interested in a long term, caring relationship do not provide the environment that we look for on behalf of our fur-kids. After all, they count on us to keep them safe, and we do our very best. For more information on Tomi and on all the little ones available for adoption, contact us at 575-894-1694 or e-mail us at weR4pets@gmail.com. Tomi Two-Sox is also featured on our DHAR Facebook page. Every Tuesday, between 9AM and 4 PM, you can visit with Tomi and the other little ones who reside in the Cool Cat Neighborhood.
“Volunteers are a dying breed. Our numbers are growing smaller and smaller” says Dale Lindstedt in a Letter to the Editor recently printed in our local newspapers. Dale speaks for the fire department to which he belongs. Sadly, his comments also ring true for every local service oriented organization operated by volunteers, including our own. The priority of many has been to try to make a living, and in the current economy, volunteering is understandably way down the list. For some other folks, every excuse in the world is found for not volunteering for this or that organization. In the end, they volunteer for none. Unless a strong spirit of community service is cultivated at an early age in our Youth, volunteerism in our community will soon become a thing of the past.
Paws&Claws Thrift Shoppe and Desert Haven Animal Refuge are operated by volunteers. If interested in helping our animal welfare cause in some way, we offer opportunities for everyone. .
