Weelk of 4/17/16 Humane Happenings

by Eliana Aubin

A feline friend at Desert Haven
This past week, Desert Haven Animal Refuge became home to Jennie-Mae, a Jack Russell rescued from an abusive situation. It didn’t take long for the little gal to start feeling safe and happy in her new environment. Another little life saved, and it felt good.
Vulcan arrived at Desert Haven this past Tuesday. The young black kitty with obvious Russian Blue ancestry has taken up temporary residency in the Howdy Room, the room-with-a-view especially reserved for all new feline arrivals. The cozy Howdy Room is conveniently located adjacent to the Cat Walk, itself part of the Neighborhood, the 1200 square feet indoor-outdoor feline living quarters. Soon, Vulcan will join the other feline residents. Interested in perhaps adopting a Desert Haven feline? Visit the sanctuary on a Tuesday when it is open to visitors, between 10 am and 4 pm.  Perhaps you prefer to peruse through Petfinder before you decide to visit. The photos and  stories of our little ones are posted at
Jane is a current work camper at Desert Haven. A genuine feline aficionado and  while residing at the sanctuary, Jane plans to update on Petfinder the information, including temperament and photos, on all the resident felines.
Would you like to become involved in our animal welfare cause? Visit the sanctuary on a Tuesday and take part in its activities for a couple of hours, share lunch with our team and then decide where you believe you can best make a difference.  Our organization offers several programs that serve the residents of TorC and surrounding communities.  Do you prefer to help out from your own home perhaps? What about organizing animal oriented projects, either on your own or as part of a community-minded group you belong to? With Walmart no longer donating their damaged bags and cans of pet food to our non-profit volunteer organization, the contributions of local and out-of-town supporters are even more crucial.  Among feathered and other furry residents, an average of 30 felines and 20 canines, all active and healthy, require plenty of good food daily.   And then they like treats of course!  Your donated pet food and treats can be dropped-off inside Paws & Claws Thrift Shoppe from Wed through Sat, between 10:30 and 4:30.
Routine and emergency veterinary care is always a must. Consider contributing to this worthwhile cause by sending a monthly contribution to our 501-c-3 non-profit animal welfare organization at PO Box 638, Williamsburg, NM 87942. E-mail us at
