Animal Services to the Rescue

Last Friday, our SFPD Animal Services Officers responded to a report of dogs on the loose in the area of Mutt Nelson and Cuatro Milpas and were able to capture three dogs they located running at large. During this incident, a resident shared that he had also captured a female dog and her eight pups, which he then turned over to our officers. Momma and her pups were taken to the Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society for examination, found to be healthy, and are now in foster care until they're ready to be adopted. Kudos to the Animal Services team for the great work!
