Xena (In Foster)

Hello! My name is Xena (In Foster)!

Here’s what my friends at Española Humane say about me:

- With her shiny black coat and chocolate brown eyes, Xena is a real show stopper. Evacuated from Ruidoso, she's still settling in and can take a bit to warm up, but once she does, she's a sweetheart with a penchant for cheese and head rubs. Xena would love to find a quieter home that will give her the time and space to decompress and open up. With a soft bed, lots of pets, and some string cheese, she's likely to be your best friend in no time.

Here's What her foster family says: Xena is pure joy! She loves our dogs and gets super goofy when they play with each other. She zoomies with all her heart and her smile is ear to ear. She loves to go on walks and explore everything around her, she walks great with her doggo friends too. Xena loves treats and belly rubs and would make a great addition to any family as she is not trying to be Top Dog, just be a part of the pack. She will happily sit next to her human relaxing under the portal or on the couch watching a good movie. She is a great all-around companion who would enjoy a good hike or just hanging out at the local patio. Xena is a beautiful dog with the heart to match, she is sweet, good temperament, kind, gentle, and loves her humans and dogs, cats are unknown. Xena is house trained. If you are considering adding to your dog family, please apply to meet Xena, she is simply Awesome!

If you’re interested in adopting me, fill out an application to get a jump start on the process! We don’t offer holds on shelter pets, so c’mon in to meet and greet to decide if you’ve met your match. Applications for pets in foster care, at Ojo Santa Fe, or offsite in other programs will be reviewed by staff before appointments are scheduled.

Española Humane

Española Humane offers free services and innovative programs to help suffering pets in underserved communities. For over three decades, we have managed an open-door shelter that welcomes every animal without charge because we believe the most humane approach is to never turn away an animal in need.  Spay/neuter access is critical to our mission, and our clinic is completely free to pets in Española, Rio Arriba County, and the surrounding Pueblos.

We’re determined to make a lasting difference and to squeeze every penny out of each donated dollar: 89% of your gift goes directly to the animals.

Latest Mews that’s Begging for Attention.

Become a foster superhero.

Fostering can be as easy as having a litter of young ones in a spare bathroom before they go to an adoption event. Or, maybe you’d like an adult to spend time with your family, just to see how that pet transforms with a little love and attention. We promise it’ll be rewarding.

Join our team of volunteers

Volunteers help every facet of our work, from support at the shelter to helping with adoption events to assistance with animal transport. We provide the training and the welcoming environment. Meet new people, learn new skills, and feel good about helping animals.

Need help finding your pet?

80% of pets are found within a mile of where they went missing. Start searching right away and use printed flyers so people can call you with sightings. An ID tag or microchip will make it a lot easier to find your pet. Hopefully, they’ve already been found and are at our shelter.
