Tackling Official Homeless Pet Practices In Taos County

Have you noticed the increase in homeless animals and overpopulation issues in Taos County? It is a concerning situation that has inspired us to take action. Our organization, High Desert Hounds, is dedicated to rescuing and caring for Taos County’s unhoused and vulnerable dogs and puppies.

Currently, we are seeing rural areas of Taos County lack the necessary resources and attention that are desperately needed, which is why our organization is stepping in to make a positive change.

Our mission is to provide routine and life-saving medical care, socialization, essential needs, and both temporary and permanent homes for animals left to fend for themselves. Since we started in November 2023, we have successfully rescued and helped save 35 dogs and puppies, providing them with spay, neuter, and medical services, among other essential needs.

We believe that every animal deserves a safe and loving home. That’s why we work tirelessly to help homeless animals in our community. Through our efforts, we hope to raise awareness about the importance of spaying and neutering pets, as well as the need for more resources and attention to rural areas in Taos County.

We hope to inspire others to join us in our mission to address the homeless animal and overpopulation issues in Taos County. Through our efforts, we hope to create a more compassionate and caring community for all animals in Taos County.
