  •  Did you get your dog (5+ / 0-)

    from Annie's Orphans the La Plata Humane Society?

    I have one from each place. Oh, and greetings from Ignacio, home of the Southern Utes.

    •  Actually, no. . . (4+ / 0-)

      Thinking Fella. . .but several of my former clients and students through NAU and another organization got their pooches through La Plata (oh, and one friend who lives in Durango). They are really good folks to know. So is "Second Chance," out of Flagstaff. Annie's Orphans I also know of, but I am not if I have any connection with anyone who got a similar treasure from those folks. I love BEST FRIENDS, in Kanab, Utah above them all. Helping out the res animals in any way that I can is very redeeming. There are some great Native Americans from many tribes that also make such humanity welfare. And trust me, people on the res love knowing the numerous stays, some of them, find good homes. I also love your part of the world, Ignacio. Lucky you for living there. Thanks so much for posting your thoughts on this matter.

      Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.

    •  I checked out Annie's Orphans, but ended up... (4+ / 0-)

      ...with the Humane Society.  Annie does a great job though.  Oreo also came from the Humane Society.  Great job Thinking Fella for saving a couple of lives, and hello from Durango!

        Me & my friends John & Darcy built most of the kennels there, as well as the 'volunteer hut' a few years ago. To be fair, there were many hands involved in the construction.
        Annie's Orphans is a very worthy shelter. So is the Humane Society here. In fact, every local Humane Society I've visited has been good--although I can't give the same props to the National organization.

        "One critter adopted, two lives saved", that's what I say.

        •  Just so you know the National Humane Society (1+ / 0-)

          does not run shelters. I think maybe they didn't copyright their name or something but local Humane Societies have nothing to do with the National one. So if you like one you don't have to like the other.

            I sort of thought of it as akin to The Red Cross, ie., top heavy & out of touch with what's happening 'on the ground'. And most local Red Cross's do good work...hence the comparison in my mind. Good to know the facts, thanks.
