Rescue Rules!

Little Mary Poppins, Pomchi extraordinaire, went for her first rock-climbing excursion a few days ago. Girl is a pro! She scrambled up those rocks like nobody's business. Go, Mary! 

She would have never rock-climbed if it wasn't for animal rescue. 

Found running as an injured stray in a rural area, Mary's time was up at the pound. Nobody wanted to adopt her because of her injuries. It was euthanasia time for our little red pal. Fortunately, a rescue group, Quixote Humane, sprung her from the pound in the nick of time, got her the vet care she needed (resulting in a $1,000 bill, with discount!), nursed her back to health and eventually allowed me to adopt her. As I type these words, she is snoozing in my lap. 

The über-caring, passionate volunteers who work so hard to save pets' lives deserve our sincere gratitude. They spend their days cleaning up the messes of irresponsible dog and cat owners, and trying to prevent new messes from happening. They make the world a better place for dogs and cats. 

Please attend Bon Fete Fashion for Paws, a silent auction and fashion show benefiting Animal Humane Association of New Mexico.

It all happens TOMORROW evening: Thursday, May 26 at 6 p.m. at Hotel Parq Central
