Alamogordo, New Mexico (PRWEB) February 14, 2015
Animal Village NM is hoping to raise awareness of the need for financial sponsors to keep their doors open to thousands of pets who will otherwise be euthanized if another no-kill shelter closes. As explained by AVNM office manager, Karla Davis, who designed the event, “‘Snoopy’s Valentine Weekend Pooch Smooch’ offers craft booths for animal lovers to make handcrafted pet toys for the shelter’s adoptable dogs and cats, delicious home-baked dog and people treats for sale, and Animal Village NM’s own ‘Healthy Dog Treat Recipe Book.’ Professional photographers will be on hand to take pet and people photos for donations of money, bagged aluminum cans or onsite online purchases from the AVNM wish list. We also have our amazing ‘Razzle Dazzle Raffle,’ which offers a brand new $3,200.00 ‘Vanquish’ men’s watch with 250 diamonds, just stunning, and other super prizes. For those who don’t win, they’ve made a tax-deductible donation to a great cause and saved lives, and for those who win, whoo-hoo for them, the prizes are wonderful! Our beautiful gift shop is also open for those looking for unique last minute Valentine gifts for all age and pocket books! Valentine cards, Budweiser replica cars and delivery vans, Lladro and Royal Doulton figurines, even an antique quilt and signed paintings- our selection of collectibles is something appraisers tell us should be at Christy’s of New York. Davis summed up by adding that the ‘Razzle Dazzle Raffle’ is described in detail at http://www.AVNM.org and the shelter hopes to raise $3,000.00 to care for the dozens of rescued pets in their care.
About Animal Village NM
“This event is designed to bring awareness of how amazing our no-kill shelter is, and how much of a huge loss it will be if it closes,” explained Karla Davis, AVNM office manager, who designed the event. “We have the healthiest, best-nourished pets for adoption, the most beautiful 9-acre wonderland that our dogs, boarding guests and adopters love, and the best care anywhere. We offer free onsite training classes with all canine adoptions, and advocate for spay and neuter and vaccinations, to close the circle of unnecessary euthanasia and the suffering of thousands of pets in New Mexico each year. We are pulling out all the stops so that everyone will come and see what we do, how beautiful it is, and how proud and supportive New Mexican’s should be to have this incredible facility open and to grow in services, for decades to come.”
AVNM director Sunny Aris adds, “New Mexico is now the state ranked highest in the U.S. for poverty, the education system is ranked at the bottom, and in the top 3-5 for animal cruelty and hoarding. It takes advocates like Animal Protection of New Mexico, and real no-kill shelters like Animal Village NM to improve conditions for pets and people alike. We offer a free pet food bank for pet guardians in need, and we’re hoping that many new faces come out and see what Animal Village NM is really all about,” concluded Aris, who is hoping for more monthly sponsors as the result of this 3-day event.
