 Sarah Ross, has been carrying on Lauries dream.  Keeping Fur and Feather moving forward.

It has been no easy task For Sarah and Brad, loosing Laurie has been very hard for both of them,and learning all that Laurie did  to keep Fur and Feather going. Now a year has passed and Fur and Feather is doing better than ever.   Many new and exciting things are in the works for FFAA.

We encourage people to come and visit us, meet the dogs, help out for the day or stay a couple.  We are working on fixing up our existing guest trailer, and hope to get one more,so guests and volunteers can stay at Fur and Feather.

We are still taking dogs in, and have had many successful adoptions.  We are working with Catron county, collaborating on ideas for controlling the animal populations.  We are moving in a new direction to  better help the community for low cost spay and neuter programs.

Fur and Feather is a place where each individual’s history and needs are taken into account. We have spayed and neutered more than 1,500 animals and matched hundreds of them with loving families

More than a “no kill” shelter, Fur and Feather has become a forever home where animals who are older, disabled, or otherwise hard to adopt can live out their years in a beautiful setting with people and animals who truly know and love them. This has particularly been a Godsend for lost and abandoned animals and those whose people have died.Facilities include several dog runs where “family groups” live and play, roomy kennels for individuals that need alone time or a warm place to bed down at night, an out-of-this world cat barn with outside space, cozy beds, and plenty of ledges and tunnels to explore. Dogs and cats who’ve proven to be 100% peaceful share the run of the 90-acre facility with a handful of rescued horses, donkeys, and chickens.

In providing lifelong support for these animals, Laurie’s vision included loving hospice care and marked, tended graves for each resident in one of the most beautiful spots on the farm.

Her animals, in turn, supported her as she battled with cancer, giving her the inspiration to outlive predicted timelines and surrounding her as she spent more and more time resting.

While Laurie is no longer with us physically, she is still our guiding light. Fur and Feather will continue to give every animal a chance, and the best way to honor her legacy is to support that vision in whatever way you can here at furandfeather.org.

Laurie is survived by her husband Brad, sister Linda, and parents Henry and Joanne.

Fur and Feather Animal Assistance is a permanent residential facility for dogs and cats designed for comfort, well-being, and CARE FOR LIFE. Our no-kill sanctuary is located in rural western New Mexico.

Established in the fall of 2003 our mission is rescuing lost, abandoned, or unwanted animals in Catron County and the surrounding New Mexico communities.

Fur and Feather provides a loving and stable environment at our sanctuary for these animals to live in. We care for each animal through the adoption process or through old age. Fur and Feather has provided homes to pets whose owners can no longer take care of them due to illness, death in the family, or financial crisis. We are also part of a network of shelters that provides a safe haven for the pets of victims of domestic violence. Our residents include disabled and elderly dogs, plus many healthy, abandoned and relinquished dogs of all sizes, types, and personalities.

Every dog and cat that passes through our hands is spayed or neutered. To date we’ve been able to spay or neuter over 1,500 pets.

OUR MISSION:  To alleviate animal suffering by providing sanctuary from abuse, neglect, and homelessness; to end the killing of healthy animals as a method of population control; to teach that animals are intrinsically valuable, worthy of respect, compassion and care. Fur and Feather Animal Assistance, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

This special guy was thrown out of a car in Pie Town!!!!!!!! I got a call Wednesday evening that a kitten fell out of a car and needed help. So I drove to Quemado to meet the people who saved him. They said he was either put in a coffee can and thrown out of a car or put in the can and left in the middle of the road!!! He was in bad shape so I rushed him to Dr.Duncon. He stitched him up and gave me some meds and told me he was going to be ok and the Faith Fund will help with this little guy. Thank you Jack Duncon!!! What rough start to life. He is doing great though!! Purring and getting lots of love. Lets think of a name for this little trooper!!
