Walking Dogs at the Shelter!
One of the funnest things to do in Silver City is walking dogs who are waiting to find homes while living at the humane society shelter!
It's awesome....you can do little walks or long walks with little dogs and big dogs. It's wonderful because there are miles and miles of open uninhabited trails right behind the shelter that you can take for as long as you and your furry friends want. It is so cool. Its a great way to make new furry friends and roam the hills and feel love...instead of only fear and hopelessness for all the animals who are in still in stressful conditions.
The staff is kind and open to people just coming there whenever they want and let you pick the dog you want to walk or let them pick out one they think would most want to get out for a bit....and off you go!
The High Desert Humane Society is located just 5 minutes from downtown Silver City, NM at 3050 S. Cougar Way and the shelter backs up onto Boston Hill which has seven miles of open trails and is a gorgeous place to walk. They also have some lovely smaller walkways and short gentle paths you can walk dogs on.
To get to the Humane Society from downtown Silver City: Head south on Bullard Street Turn Right on Broadway Street Turn Left on Cooper Street Turn Right on Cougar Way (you'll see the shelter on your right)
The shelter is open Tuesday through Friday 8:30 - 5:30 and Saturday 8:30 - 5:00.
You can also just hang out and pet the dogs and cats...who always welcome the affection and love....and end up giving so much to us....even though we came to give love to them!
If you have questions for them about visiting the dogs and cats you can reach them at (575) 538-9261 or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you would like to help get the word out that our local shelter lets people take dogs out for walks on trails and in the hills...here is a full size flyer and here is a smaller two on one flier you can print up and help hang around town....you can also take out the kitties from their cages and let them play for a bit in the cat corral!!
