Final amendments for kennel location options are still pending from Planning and Zoning Commission.
In the meantime, foster care has been provided by BARC staff and the Simpson’s at the Simpson’s fenced in yard. During this month, 6 females, 6 males and 5 puppies have been rescued. The longest distance for pick up was 120 miles at Sheep Springs , New Mexico, where a spay/neuter clinic was held. Underdog had more surrenders from that clinic than they had room for. They called me to foster a mom dog with 5 four week old puppies. In addition, 2 strays were rescued by Georgianna at 3 am near her yard. Another stray was dropped off by a tourist who visited the Sand Island dog magnet on their way to Grand Junction.
We delivered and used 390 pounds of dog food, along with 2 cases of canned dog food, and travelled 740 miles to pick up animals and deliver dog food.
The highlight this month has been watching this great mom dog nurse her 5 puppies.
