CATS  
Scarlet—A sweet 12-year-old kitty who was recently surrendered when her family was worried about her medical care. Scarlet was pre-diabetic, but after a stay with the vet, she is doing much better and currently does not require any medication. She could use help with her diet though – she’ll feel much better after losing a few pounds!
Mr. Whiskers—A big tabby cat that is about 4 years old. Changes are a bit stressful for him, so he will likely need a little bit of time to adjust to his new home. He can be independent, but he’s also very sweet and likes to snuggle when he’s in the mood! He is OK with mellow cats, but other dominant males sometimes bother him.
Bailey—A 10-year-old black and white tuxedo who wants to be your best friend! He loves sitting on laps and lounging in the sunshine, even when his black fur gets really hot and makes him drowsy. He’s very curious and loves exploring new places, so care will have to be taken to make sure he doesn’t try to get outside to explore! He has a soft meow that he uses to let you know he wants some attention. Bailey does well with older, friendly cats, but kittens might be a bit too rambunctious for him.
Sam—An 8-year-old all black male kitty who would make the perfect gentle buddy. This sweetheart loves to hang out in his little kitty hammock, but as soon as visitors step into his kennel, he’s all about giving and receiving love!
Pandora—A young orange-and-white cat who is calm and confident. She enjoys the company of other cats, particularly friendly and mellow cats. She enjoys hanging out on high perches and looking out windows, particularly if there are birds nearby that she can keep her eye on! She has adorable, slightly crossed eyes that just add to her cuteness.
Daisy—A young and vocal dilute tortie who loves attention! She’s inquisitive and rambunctious, and she will bring a lot of laughs into her new home. She does have lots of kitten energy though - she might be a little overwhelming for older cats, and she would probably do best with a kitty playmate!
Aspen—A sweet, 1-year-old tortoiseshell came to the shelter after being abandoned near Sombrillo Nursing Home; she recovered from her upper respiratory infection, but during her recent health checkup, the veterinarian found a tumor in her mouth. The shelter is working with Friends of the Shelter to get Aspen the medical care that she needs, but Aspen would still love to meet and find her new family! She is very sweet and snuggly, and she can’t wait to bring a smile to your face.
Amy, Ruffles, Banana, Biscuit and Apple Jack—Kittens who were recently transferred to the shelter from the NM DOG rescue group. They will be vaccinate and spayed/neutered in the coming week(s), and then they will be ready for their forever home. They are adorable kittens full of crazy kitten energy!
DOGS
Natasha—A Doberman/shepherd mix with the perfect mix of both breeds. She is about three years old, and she cannot wait to find a family that will consider her a valued member of the family and allow her to enjoy their outdoor activities and indoor comforts.
Marida—A petite, 3-year-old cattle dog mix. She can be a bit picky about her friends – she prefers the company of dogs and humans, but she definitely does not enjoy having to share her space with cats or poultry! She has great manners and a very sweet nature, and her beautiful brown eyes will make you fall in love immediately!
Gracie—A young hound mix who will need to be an indoor family member, since she is a bit of an escape artist – or maybe she just wants everyone to give her a reason to like staying at home! She is very sweet and people oriented.
Traci—An adorable 2-year-old black lab mix. She is full of typical Lab energy, and she is so eager to learn new skills that she wiggles in excitement! She would do best in a home that will help Traci continue her obedience skills and include her in their fun outdoor activities.
