Pets of the Week: June 28

The Daily Times staff


Arlene: This super sweet mellow gal is looking for a home. Arlene loves people of all ages, and she prefers other dogs that also are mellow. She likes long walks in the park and cuddle time. Arlene is already spayed, micro-shipped and ready to go home.

Jill: Jill came in as a stray so staff at the Farmington Regional Animal Shelter don’t know much about her history. What they can tell you is that she is a bit reserved and takes time to warm up to you. But once she does, you have a friend for life. She needs a home where she can take time to adjust and relax. Jill is spayed, micro-chipped and waiting for her new family to walk in and find her.



Callie: This cat is very sophisticated looking. She is content perching high on the ledge in her cage and quietly observing the world around her. She is so quiet most don't even notice her. She will need a quiet home where she can become comfortable and show her true sweet self. Callie is already spayed and ready to go home today.

Catrina: Catrina is a ridiculously sweet girl, with absolutely gorgeous markings and big blue eyes. Catrina is extremely affectionate with people and very smart. She has the quietest — almost silent — meow and makes similarly sweet and quiet squeaky noises. If your attention has wandered from her, she’ll sometimes wander over and give you a little poke with her paw.

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.



Smokey: Smokey is a 3-year-old gelding that was born in the wild. His mother is Callie, a small black mare.

Callie was captured around the El Rito area when she strayed onto private land. Smokey is a pony, standing about 13 hands high. He retains his mustang instincts and will need a person who is willing to spend time bonding with him using natural horsemanship techniques. He leads, loads and stands for the farrier.

Smokey's adoption fee is $250 and it includes four lessons for the horse and his new owner with a professional trainer.
