THANKSGIVING CLOSING: The Santa Fe Animal Shelter, its Admissions, Adoptions, Behavior, Hospital, Clinic and resale stores will be closed Thursday, Nov. 26, in celebration of the Thanksgiving holiday. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! The Shelter’s Admissions and Adoptions facilities will be closed Friday, Nov. 27, for the holiday as well. The Shelter’s Thaw Animal Hospital, south-side clinic and resale stores will be open that day with normal business hours.

NEW WEEKEND HOURS: Our Adoption Center is now open longer on weekends! We’re open until 6 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays! More time to fall in love!

Light their Way Home! For every $100 gift we receive through Dec. 18, we will add your name — or the name of an animal or a person you wish to honor – to a farolito and line the shelter’s entrance. The goal is to raise $200,000 and help save the lives of 2,000 shelter animals. Our campaign will end with a farolito lighting at 6 p.m. Dec. 18 at the shelter, 100 Caja del Rio Road. Please join in our celebration, which includes refreshments, the lighting of the shelter Christmas tree and singing around a courtyard luminaria. Call it what you will – helping animals is always a good thing!…/donate
