The Latest Scoop About What's Going On At Enchantment Rescue!





Pups Tail Wagger April.jpg



Popo's puppies are doing great and will be available for adoption the first week in May.

Popo has been adopted by the woman who rescued her and called ECR. She has three other Chi's and they are now all one happy family.



Sawyer - Happy Ending 222.jpg


Sawyer (on the right) will be trained as a service dog for his new mom! He will live out his days being spoiled to pieces along with his new "sister" Chica. His neck wound has healed completely.



Cleo in red for Tail Wagger.jpg


Following surgery on her leg, Cleo has made an excellent recovery and her foster mom just can't let her go. Cleo will now be a little diva and will undoubtedly be totally spoiled.



Baldwin 222.jpg


Baldwin is still undergoing treatment for his skin infection. All of the sore are gone and he is growing new, beautiful hair. He will soon be ready for adoption.







Our president visited Old Dominion Humane Society in Virginia while on a vacation last year. Due to very strict and humane breeding laws, Virginia has a shortage of small dogs. Old Dominion actually has a waiting list of adopters!

Meanwhile, out here in the wild west we have few if any restrictions on breeders and are euthanizing hundreds of dogs every single week throughout the state of New Mexico.

Around the first of May Old Dominion is coming to ABQ to pick up 15 very lucky small dogs. All of them will be under 15 lbs. and of mixed Chihuahua heritage. Everyone of them has already been spoken for by someone in Virginia, and a deposit made, sight unseen. Each adopter will have a home visit by Old Dominions Humane to be certain they are going to a safe responsible family, just like we do here in Albuquerque.

ECR wants to help Old Dominion by collecting 15 plastic kennels for the dogs to travel in their van to Virginia.

If you have an old kennel you could donate please bring it to one of our Meet N' Greets or call 505-275-SAVE (7283) for a pickup.



Chiple had a biopsy that showed her wounds were caused by an untreatable form of skin cancer. She was put to sleep surrounded by the love of all those who tried so hard to save her.

ECR thanks everyone who helped with the medical expenses for these doggies.
