Sanctuary hosts art show

An animal sanctuary that takes care of elderly dogs, horses and poultry will host a one-day art show Saturday.

The annual art show fundraiser is set for 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Kindred Spirits Animal Sanctuary. The art show is an opportunity to visit with animals in hospice and elder care and meet many of the artists who are donating their work to support the sanctuary, organizers said. The show will feature a variety of art, including painting, photography jewelry, sculptures, carvings, folk art and wearable art.

All proceeds benefit the sanctuary’s wellness care for the senior animals. The show is free and open to the public. Vegan refreshments will be served.

The sanctuary is located on N.M. 14 near Lone Butte General Store. For more information, visit the website at www.kindredspiritsnm.org or call 471-5366.

Shelter offers fee-waived cat adoptions

The Santa Fe animal shelter will waive its adoption fees on adult cats this month as part of its Cats are Cool for School promotion.

The fee-waived adoption event runs from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily at the shelter, 100 Caja del Rio Road. The promotion covers all cats 6 months or older.

“Kitten season is a busy time for all animal shelters, especially ours,” said shelter spokesman Murad Kirdar. “The surge of kittens leaves the older cats less desirable to potential adopters. We hope this campaign will help find many of our adult cats their second chance at a forever home.”

All adoptions include altering, microchipping, age-appropriate vaccinations, one month of pet insurance and a bag of food.
