All day on Friday, April 26, any dog more than 1-year-old will be just $5. The price includes spay and neuter services, a microchip and registration.
Desiree Cawley, the director at the animal welfare department, told Action 7 News this is the first time they’ve offered anything like this. She said they are simply so overpopulated, they need to make more room.
Animal welfare reported more than 500 dogs in their shelters, more than they had at the same time last year. They said even though they’ve done commercials, put up posters and held event after event, they keep getting more and more dogs.
“We don’t know why it’s happening,” Cawley said.
Most of the dogs they have are strays. Some of them were surrendered by their owners.
Both the Eastside and Westside shelters will have extended hours on Friday. Cawley said they will be open 10:30 to 8 p.m. so that people at work still have an opportunity to come by.
Now these are dreads with purpose. Hair booms are a completely green, renewable resource that sop-up the oily slicks of horror rapidly flowing toward innocent wildlife, habitat, inhabitants and industry of the Gulf.
But the booms themselves are endangered because the organizations that are working tirelessly to help ease this mess are coming-up short hosed.
Your sad, old pantyhose can help rescue the gulf coast. We’ve all got or know someone who has wads of nylons in the very back of their underwear drawer.
Gather-up your grandma’s old medias and hook-up with Matter of Trust dot Org for the complete instructions on how to send ‘em in to aid in the mass clean-up required to save our Gulf Coast from the catastrophic (and ongoing) BP oil spill.
And P.S. Calling all NM Alpacas and furry friends. Matter of Trust and Excess Access need all the hair & fur clippings you can muster for their reserves.

Yesterday – Available on DVD, from the Apatow juggernaut Year One is an unsung (adult) comedy with surprisingly sweeping NM scenes including the hilarity of McLovin & Chief Wiggum/Apu at Tent Rocks, Juggernaut as a Roman in White Sands, Tobias at the Rio Grand and so much more.
Today – Megan Fox is currently in and around NM towns shooting the upcoming thriller Passion Play with fellow animal lover Rourke.
Getting through a scare with her own pooch last week the animalisticactress missed an appearance but donated her dough to a local, non-profit, wild-life rescue zoo.
This Summer Kate Hudson made her way to New Mexico to film The Killer Inside Me. Though Kate’s been linked with a purported snake as of late the star was less receptive to the reported 5′ rattler she found on the steps of her trailer on set while filming.
The wile eyed star was said to be petrified, wheezafied and shriekified until crew members removed the reptile from her vicinity. Conversely NM film shoot regular, Shai Lebeouf was far more PETA-fied when he encountered a rattler on the set of Transformers Revenge of the Fallen.
Thoughtful man-boy Labeouf rattle-sat the critter he found until a certified humane snake handler could arrive on scene and insure the reptile would be released into the wild…awwwwwwwwwwwww.

Donnie’s wit and work ethic, yes it is work to entertain y’all, have steadily made him a regional fave., even spawning an online fan club of his very own.
Year after year Chase is tapped as a fan favorite in multiple publications including the Weekly Alibi’s big annual “Best of Burque” edition. New Mexico may be the New Hollywood but Chase hasn’t let all that go to his pretty lil’ head, championing causes close to his warm fuzzy heart, lending himself to animal rescue organizations such as Watermelon Mountain Ranch – New Mexico’s largest no-kill animal shelter.
