Pets of the Week: Oct. 4

The Daily Times staff


Tilly: Tilly is full of compassion, zeal and a drive to run and play. She likes to be around people and does well with other dogs. Tilly is spayed and ready to go home today. Stop by the Farmington Regional Animal Shelter and spend some time with her.

Mama Bear: This is a sweet lady who has been looking for the perfect place to call home since June. She is very mellow and likes short walks and then lots of rest. She is not very active but is treat motivated. She would prefer to be in a home with adults and no other dogs. Mama Bear is house trained and ready to go home today. If you are looking for a companion to sit and watch the colors change, Mama Bear is your pick.

Chloe: Chloe is a sweet little lady who is affectionate once she gets to know you. At times, she is uncertain and uncomfortable about being picked up, but, at other times, she is OK with it. As you get to know her, you will come to know the best ways to handle her to keep her comfortable.  Chloe will be most happy in a home with just adults or older children.

October is Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, and if you’ve been thinking about adding a four-legged friend to your family, stop in this month for great adoptions deal. Puppies are $75, adult dogs are $50 and seniors are $25.


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.


Cooper: Cooper was once a wild colt who roamed free in the Thoreau area of New Mexico. Now, he is a curious, albeit skeptical, 6-year-old gelding living at Four Corners Equine Center.


Cooper halters and stands for the farrier. He stands about 15 hands high and weighs about 800 pounds. His animated trot is beautiful to watch.

The perfect home would be with a person who is willing to spend time to grow the trust needed to continue his training using natural horsemanship techniques.

The adoption fee for Cooper is $400, and that includes six sessions with a professional trainer.
