Founded in 1998, the Chama Valley Humane Society is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) organization supported entirely through fundraising, private donations, and grants.Our mission is to provide no-kill solutions to reduce the population of homeless cats and dogs by sponsoring a spay and neuter program for companion pets and feral cats, working with regional shelters and foster homes to rehabilitate and rehome animals, and educating those in the community we serve about responsible pet ownership.We serve a 600 square mile area of northern Rio Arriba County, New Mexico. We do not have a shelter, but we try to take in all animals we can from the Village of Chama holding facility as well as strays and unwanted animals throughout our region. All rescued animals are fostered locally until they can be adopted or transferred to no- or low-kill shelters or rescues.In addition to rescue and foster, we support the following programs:â¢ A low-cost spay-neuter program for community pet ownersâ¢ An Angel Fund to help pet owners pay for unexpected veterinarian bills through a no-interest revolving loanâ¢ WAG ân READ - A Reading Education and Assistance DogsÂ® program that works in our local schools to strengthen the animal-human bond while enhancing the reading experience for children
Sweet Izzy has been left twice by her owner and this time she was taken in by neighbors. They love her but can't bring her inside and also are away two or three days a week and she is alone. They are interested in finding her a safe home where she can be more part of the family. She is a very sweet girl but not used to loads of new people but happy with a family. She loves the teenagers at her foster home. If you have space in your home and heart for a loving, large, senior girl, please consider Izzy!
