More N.M. dogs coming to Colorado following wildfire
July 5, 2011
DENVER – More shelter dogs are set to come to Colorado because of the wildfire near Los Alamos, N.M.
The Santa Fe Animal Shelter had to free up room for pets displaced by the Las Conchas fire so it’s planning to send between 20 and 25 adoptable dogs to a Denver shelter. The dogs are set to arrive at the Dumb Friends League on Tuesday. Some are expected to be available for adoption later this week.
Another Denver-area shelter received 11 adoptable dogs from another New Mexico shelter on Friday.
Residents of Los Alamos were allowed back home Sunday but about 400 homes remain threatened by the fire.
