ALBUQUERQUE, NM (KRQE) – NMDOG works in partnership with local law enforcement, animal control, and New Mexico shelters in helping them with their most serious cases of animal cruelty and abuse. NMDOG Founder Angela Stell highlights the organization’s work statewide and also features one of their rescues.
An all-volunteer, foster-family-based nonprofit dog rescue, NMDOG removes abused dogs from their chains and integrates them into its program to provide medical care and emotional rehabilitation to prepare them for adoption. The organization depends solely on donations from the community and encourages them to continue their work.
NMDOG still needs approved foster care providers because they allow dogs to learn life skills before they are adopted while saving nonprofit funds in boarding fees. There are never any hospitality costs for NMDOG as all supplies and expenses are covered. To learn more about adopting or fostering a dog in need, or to volunteer or donate, visit nmdog.org.
Stell shows the adorable Roadie who was found by a Good Samaritan strapped to a railing along a deserted highway. Once released, rescuers discovered Roadie was suffering from a serious hip injury and after arriving at NMDOG care he was taken for an orthopedic assessment which unfortunately failed, leaving amputation as his only option.
Now a tripod, Roadie loves to take road trips and is home trained, crate trained and walks well with his leash and harness. Hanger Clinic in Albuquerque is working with an east coast company to provide Roadie with its own custom prosthesis and is scheduled for a final adjustment to come. Roadie is looking for her forever home and is available for adoption.
