Last month I told you about our difficulties trying to catch a skittish stray dog at the Valley of the Gods bed and breakfast. We decided to buy a Net Gun, something I had never seen nor used. The wary dog would come to my car when I first drove into the driveway, but bolted when I rolled down the window to shoot the net. He then ran off to hide, not returning for 3-4 hours. The 70 mile round trip was repeated at least four times, arriving earlier each time. Once he came within 20 feet of my car but the net gun misfired, capturing the inside of my windshield.
Three weeks later Clair was finally able to lure him into her kitchen with food and get a collar on him. We were then able to pick him up, place in a carrier and transport him to the Rez for a happy reunion with his brother, after 5 months!
Check out the photos.
This past month Al and Kathy have fostered the black stray first noticed by Ann Leppanen near her place. He is now very gentle and sleeps in Kathy and Al’s house. He was adopted at the end of the month.
This past month BARC vaccinated 5 dogs and drove 820 miles to transport and deliver 500 pounds of dog food to fosters in Red Mesa, Montezuma Creek, Dennehotso and Valley of the Gods.
Looking ahead to the October Eclipse, we realize that we will need more temporary holding pens. We are already stockpiling dog food, in addition to our monthly requirements.
BARC donation cannisters have brought in much needed revenue- $42.50 from K and C, $72.25 from Twin Rocks Cafe, and $270.50 from Twin Rocks Trading Post.
Thanks to everyone who has contributed.
