The staff of the shelter thank you for your help and ask that you cross your fingers, paws and hearts for New Mexico’s people and animals during this crisis.
As you might know, right now there are some severe wildfires spreading across the state of New Mexico.
Because of voluntary evacuations, The Espanola Valley Animal Shelter in Espanola, New Mexico is beginning to receive the pets of evacuees from two neighboring counties (Los Alamos and Santa Fe). According to the shelter, “The two closest fires are currently 0% and 18% contained. Over the next week, we expect that our kennels will fill with animals belonging to those who are losing their homes and land, and with no rain in sight, the intakes will likely overflow into our local rural events center, an area threatened by these encroaching fires.”
They have found temporary homes for all but two of the in-shelter dogs, who have kennel cough. They have found housing for the kittens, but need help with placing the adult cats.
If you can help with homing either of the dogs with kennel cough, or any of the adult cats, please contact the shelter:
