My Turn - Continue to improve our
working-together skills to benefit animals

by Pennie Wardlow-Herrera

Happy holidays to all — including the animals of Taos County, particularly the homeless, hungry, cold, sick and uncared for. Please hold these dear creatures in your hearts as we move into the new year with love, hope and gratitude for our many blessings. Four Corners Animal League (FACL) is grateful for the dedicated people serving the homeless animals in Taos County.

It’s an enormous undertaking — rescuing and caring for the injured, finding homes for puppies and kitties and spay/neutering every cat and dog in Taos County. This has been our work at FCAL for eight years and so far we have neutered over 6,500 animals and take over 4,800 puppies to Colorado. The best holiday gift for your pet is a spay/neuter. It will safeguard good health and protect them from the dangers that pop up when scouring the neighborhood for a girlfriend or running the range with a group of neighborhood dogs. Look for the Spay/Neuter Van coming to your community and make an appointment.

Readers new to the Taos area may not know of our work in the community which includes responding to emergency calls at all hours regarding critical situations threatening the safety of any pet (741-1444). We feed abandoned animals until they can be trapped and taken to safety. Any problem involving the well-being of an animal is our concern. Our main focus is a spay/neuter program. Call 751-0150 for this service.

FCAL is NOT a shelter. FCAL is grateful to the town of Taos, Taos County Government, Village of Questa, Taos Pueblo and all the individual donors who make our work possible. We are equally grateful to the host of reliable volunteers that always come when called to rescue an animal or feed and care for needy dogs, cats, donkeys and horses. Thank you!

It takes an entire community of animal care-givers working together for the well being of our homeless population. We must continue to improve our working-together skills for the benefit of the animals. That is always our purpose: to benefit the animals.
