ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Los Alamos residents not only have to worry about themselves but the also have to worry about their furry friends. It is not easy when you own a pack of alpacas or a 2,000 pound horse.
However the Santa Fe Equestrian Center has taken in 210 animals since Sunday night.
Not only are they taking every animal you can think of, they are caring for, feeding and exercising these animals for free.
The 87 acre facility is owned by Los Alamos National Bank.
The facility said they have never thought about turning anyone away.
“This is a community, part of the community is the animals it's a family it's taking care of people,” Anne Wilson of the Santa Fe Equestrian Center said.
Wilson says they have room for at least a 100 more animals if people are still looking.
The Santa Fe Animal Humane Shelter and Espanola Shelter are also taking dogs and cats in.
