Pets of the Week: Jan. 5

The Daily Times staff



Smith: If any dog deserves a home for the new year, it would be Smith. Smith was found in a Dumpster left to die. He was rescued and brought to the shelter. We have watched as his personality has blossomed. He is a loving, sweet-hearted dog that needs a loving home that will love and nurture him for the rest of his life. Smith is still a little unsure of where his next meal will come from so he gets into trash cans and counter surfs. He will need an owner who will be patient and teach him how to be a dog again. Help Smith's wish for a new home come true.


Flurry: Flurry is a sweet girl in need of a loving home. There's nothing she likes more than being around people. She gets along with other dogs and would love to find an active family to spend the rest of her life with. Flurry has been calling the shelter home since Aug. 4 and is ready to find a place to call home.


BB: BB has been at the shelter since April and wants to find a loving home in 2016. She is a playful and energetic gal who just wants a family to love. BB is a ticket out dog, so when you adopt her, you will receive six free training sessions with New Mexico Badlands Search and Rescue. To meet BB, stop by the Farmington Regional Animal Shelter today.


Pepper: Pepper is wishing for a forever home. Pepper is a sweet 1-year-old female pit mix. She is great with other dogs and all people. She is already spayed and eager to meet her new family.

The Farmington Animal Shelter is located at 133 Browning Parkway and can be reached at 505-599-1098. Check for a up-to-date list of pets up for adoption.



Callie is a gentle 6-year-old pony. She is somewhat shy around people but likes getting brushed. Because of an injury to her right rear leg, Callie is unable to be ridden. She could easily be a companion to a gentle horse. Callie can’t kick because of her injury, and therefore cannot defend herself from rowdy horses.

She is the mother of two horses at Four Corners Equine Rescue, Smokey and Cisco. Callie was captured while she had a baby at her side and was pregnant. She is from the Tierra Amarilla area, where she was running with a band of wild horses.

Callie is trained to halter, lead and stand for the farrier. The adoption fee is $250.
