Helping Creatures Without A Voice

































Four Corners Animal League's goal is to ensure that every pet has a safe and loving home. We are reducing the population of unwanted pets through spaying, neutering and education programs making this a safer community for all of us.cute dogs

Four Corners Animal League is not an animal shelter. We have no central location for processing animals. Instead we are actively involved in education through Taos County. We conduct our programs at elementary schools and door-to-door, discussing loving care of pets and all living creatures. Our education always urges spaying and neutering and focuses on the suffering that occurs when unwanted animals proliferate in a small community.

We also have a foster care program through which individuals throughout the community foster the care of animals we find abandoned or mistreated. The community has responded with much love in offering to care for animals at their homes until we can find placement for them. We are always in need of responsible foster care.

Needless to say, we cannot handle numerous folks calling in to dispose their animals. We would like to encourage that the individual animal owner embrace the responsibility for posting notices, running ads and contacting friends etc. We are overwhelmed with the number of people wanting to find homes for their current pets.
