Our featured pet Missy!
Our pet of the month introduces herself as Missy. I'm an Australian Shepherd, purebred. I am spayed, have all my shots, and am a wonderful companion. I'm smart, loving, and very playful. I love children, love to go for walks, and am just in need of a very loving home.
We have a spay/neuter program in which we offer financial assistance to those in need. A recent program offered pet owners to pay only $30.00 to have their pet spayed or neutered. The Raton Humane Society paid the balance. We had a total of 175 pet owners participate.
We are non-profit corporation existing since 1979. We operated strictly on membership dues and donations. Our purpose is the prevention of cruelty to animals, to care for sick and injured animals, and to oversee the operation of the Raton Animal Shelter. We have a cooperative agreement with the city of Raton regarding animal control.
Our adoption fee includes surgery, rabies shot, city license, DHLPPCU(dogs) or FVRCP(cats), vet exam and humane society fee.
The adoption fee for all animals, dog/cat; male/female, is $75.00 per animal.
