This week’s Pet of the Week goes to Hermere, the most loving, affectionate dog around.
He is about one and a half years old and was found as a stray in San Miguel County. While Hermere does great with other dogs, he is even better with humans and loves to cuddle.
Director of Animal Welfare Coalition of Northeastern New Mexico Martina Holguin says that animals from the coalition are “adoptable ready”. This means that the animals have received age appropriate vaccines and are microchipped.
Dogs are tested for heartworm while cats are tested for feline leukemia and FIV. Holguin also reminds pet owners to be aware of rabies this season.
Rabies is 100% preventable and can be prevented with a simple vaccine. This added concern comes after two reported cases of foxes with rabies came from San Miguel County.
