Deming Headlight December 2, 2009

Deming Animal Guardians holding a sale of items to benefit its spay/neuter program and pet food bank. Over 100 items are on display at B&D Outback Framing, 2111 Columbus Road, next to Deming Animal Clinic.

All proceeds benefit DAG's animal programs, including the spay/neuter assistance program. DAG is an all-volunteer charitable organization that has subsidized almost 8,000 spays/neuters of dogs and cats since 1991. DAG volunteers have organized and sponsored mobile spay/neuter vans in Luna County since 2003. The van will be returning to the area from the Santa Fe Animal Shelter in February and March of 2010 at a cost to the group of $2,200 to $2,500 per day.

The event is free, but donations of dog and cat food are needed for the Pet Food Bank to help needy local pets. Pet food is also being collected at Deming Animal Clinic and High Desert Veterinary Care. Donations of dog houses in good condition are needed to provide shelter for cold, unsheltered local dogs this winter.

The public is invited to join in Deming Animal Guardians' Christmas Party to celebrate the importance of the four-footed friends in our lives. For more information, call Pat at (575) 544-2209. September 3, 2009

Deming Animal Guardians began a program on Wednesday that aims to help homebound senior citizens keep their pets. The Bob Beckett Senior Center's meal delivery program will act as the feet on the ground to deliver cat and dog food to seniors and their pets in need.

"We realized how important pets are to senior citizens and that many are having a hard time feeding their animals as well as taking care of their own needs," Pat Danser, DAG President, said.

The animal guardians have distributed over 11,000 pounds of dog and cat food to needy families since 2008. The latest effort kicked off with 648 pounds of dog food and 90 pounds of cat food for pets of local seniors.

"All of our volunteers get immense personal satisfaction from knowing that people who love their animals will be able to keep them during these economic times," Danser said. "We always have difficult economic times in Deming, it's always a struggle. There are so many needy people." She said the program will not be able to continue without monetary donations or donations of pet food. Grants help fill the gap, but can't cover the needs of all local pets. The PETCO Foundation has supplied the DAG with a $2,500 grant and the Humane Society of the United States has supplied $1,000. The Humane Society grant goes toward pet food distribution at the Helping Hand commodity center.

"We never know if these will be renewed," Danser said of grants.

Pet food is planned to be dropped off at the senior center on a monthly basis.

"Some people will feed their animals before they feed themselves because those dogs and cats are so important to them," she said. "They're family members." The main war cry for the DAG is spaying and neutering animals. Some assistance is offered to low income families seeking help with medical costs.

"When they get the dog food, they are encouraged to spay and neuter," Kathleen Hollis, one of seven volunteers with this program, said.

For more information or to donate, contact Danser at (575) 544-2209. Tax-deductible donations can be mailed as a check to P.O. Box 1275, Deming, N.M. 88030.

For those who need it most, cat spay/neuter for only a $10 Co-pay! 
We're so proud to announce the Moving Forward for Felines Fund, the generous gift of an anonymous donor designed to raise the profile of cats in our communities by helping to fund spay and neuter.

This fund will allow those who need it most to receive spay/neuter services for even less than our already-low prices. For only a $10 co-pay in most cases, owners can ensure that their cat stays healthier and doesn't increase the population of unwanted cats already filling our community by getting spayed or neutered in our high-quality clinic.

Funds are limited each month, so act now! Call 474-6422 for more information or to make an appointment.

“Big Brown Dog Bonanza” Pays Owners $10 Bonus with Every Free Spay/Neuter! 
Big dogs are good dogs. They're also easy to find in northern New Mexico. In fact, shelters are full of them.

To save the lives of these overlooked dogs, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society will waive the surgery fee and pay owners a $10 bonus for every big, brown mixed-breed dog over 40 pounds (or puppies who are planning on growing up to be big, brown mixed-breed dogs!) brought to the SFAS&HS Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic for surgery.

To schedule an appointment or for more information, owners may call the SFAS&HS Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic at (505) 474-6422.

The Spay/Neuter & Wellness Clinic at 2570-B Camino Entrada (next to Outback Steakhouse) offers a low-cost spay/neuter program to help ensure fewer unwanted puppies and kittens, and to help the overall health of the animals.
