Animal Humane New MexicoThere’s no delicate way to say this, but… is your pooch peeing on the carpet suddenly? Is your cat going crazy on the furniture or your dog barking so much it drives you and your neighbors nuts?  Or does your pet keep breaking out through the fence and you’re worried for his or her safety?

These are often solvable problems if you know what to do. But if you don’t know what to do and you’d like to understand your pet better, you can get free help from Animal Humane New Mexico.

Use their free helpline (505-938-7900) to speak to a trained coach who can help you solve pet behavior problems.  If you don’t reach someone immediately, leave a message and someone will get back to you soon.  You can also email your questions to them at  behaviorhelpline@animalhumanenm.org   This is a completely free service and it’s wonderful that they offer it. It might even prevent some pets from having to go to shelters when their human is driven to the end of their tether – so pass the word along!

The Animal Humane Behavior free helpline helps with pet issues including separation anxiety, destructive behaviors, escaping, barking, chasing, digging, fearful behavior, housetraining,  introducing a new pet to the household where there are already pets, and puppy and kitten development.

I only wish they could provide free trained coaches to deal with Mr Cheap’s behavior problems, but he’d probably say the same about me :-)

Comments Off on Pet Parade: April 30

Bookworks Pet ParadeThe Rio Grande Shops at the Flying Star Plaza on Rio Grande Boulevard host a costumed Pet Parade and other poochy events on April 30, 2011.

This looks fun if you enjoy dressing up your pet, or if you don’t have a pet but want one, or for anyone who wants to watch the pet parade, join in family fun activities, and support a good cause.

A reminder that the pet parade is at 1 pm on Saturday April 30, and you can enter your own pet with a $5 fee that benefits Animal Humane New Mexico (arrive by 12:15).
Or just turn up to watch the parade.

Contestants can win prizes for funniest costume, best fashion statement, and best owner/dog costume.

Other Pet Parade & Mobile Adoption highlights include:

  • Find a pet for yourself with Animal Humane’s Mobile Adoption unit from 10 am to 3 pm
  • Kids can take their pet to Bookworks children’s story time at 11 am
  • Dance of the Eggshells Easter storytime with Carla Aragon at noon
  • Giggles the Clown animal balloons and face painting from 12:30 to 3:30 pm
  • Live music from 1:30 to 2:45
  • Door prizes (announced at 2 pm)
  • Shop at the Rio Grande Shops between noon and 4 pm, and they’ll donate 10% of sales to Animal Humane New Mexico.

See the full Pet Parade and Mobile Adoption schedule, and remember that on April 30 and every day through April if you buy a Flying Star cookie with the Animal Humane logo, their Buy A Cookie, Save A Pet benefit gives $1 to Animal Humane New Mexico. 

The Rio Grande Shops at the Flying Star Plaza are, of course, Flying Star Cafe, Bookworks, Willow,
Pfeifer Studio, Lilly Barrack, and Pennysmiths Paper.

Head for 4022 Rio Grande Boulevard NW. They say there will be extra off-site parking available for the pet parade.

Animal Humane New MexicoNot to be indelicate, but…is your pooch peeing on the carpet suddenly? Has Fluffy the cat decided your new leather couch makes a great new scratching post? Or maybe Rover has become a real Houdini, laughing at your attempts to fence him in?

Do you know many pets wind up in shelters for these kind of reasons? Which is sad, because they are all solvable problems.

The key to a long, loving relationship with our pets is understanding how to deal with their behaviors in order to keep peace in the home. If you’re having problems with your pet’s behavior, FREE help is available from Animal Humane New Mexico.

Just call 505-938-7900 to speak to a trained coach who can help you solve pet behavior problems. This is an absolutely free service!

The Animal Humane Behavior free helpline can help you deal with issues including: 

  • Destruction
  • Barking
  • Escaping
  • Housetraining
  • Digging
  • Fearful Behavior
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Chasing
  • Eating Disorders
  • Puppy & Kitten Development
  • Multiple Animal Households and introducing new pets

Now, if only they could provide free trained coaches to deal with teenage behavior problems, we’d be set.

By the way, the Artists for the Animals fundraiser on August 14, 2010, includes an art auction, hors d’oeuvres, raffle, and live music.  There will also be a cash bar. Tickets are $60, and the event is from 6 – 9 pm at the National Hispanic Cultural Center.  It’s a good cause to support and you get to dress up fancy – dress code is cocktail attire!

Pet owners: also see 10% discount on dog and cat treats plus Boofy’s Best for Pets coupons.

Comments Off on $10 Cats and Kittens from Animal Humane

It doesn’t get any better (or cheaper!) than this. Bring home a new furry family member for just $10 during Animal Humane New Mexico‘s Fall Adopt-a-thon, September 25-27 (2009). The cost of your new furbaby includes spaying/neutering and vaccinations, so you just can’t beat this deal!

All you have to do is stop by Animal Humane during normal business hours (10:00am – 6:00pm; closed for lunch from noon to 1:00pm) and pick out your new tabby, calico, longhair, shorthair, maybe even polydactyl kitty. At this price, better get two of them to keep each other company.

Animal Humane New Mexico is located at 615 Virginia SE, Albuquerque.

BOGO Kittehs! Kittahs! Kitties!

Comments Off on BOGO Kittehs! Kittahs! Kitties!

Two cats inhabit Cheap Central. Actually, it’s about two-and-a-half cats. One is a big, dumb lunk. The other is sleek and intelligent. If only we could teach her to type, this website would boast a lot more content. Of course, a lot of it would be about cat treats.

At any rate, it’s safe to say we love cats. If you love cats, too, here’s a great offer from Animal Humane New Mexico.

For a limited time, you can adopt two cats for the price of one! That’s two adorable new additions to your household for just $9.99! You can name one of them “BOGO” and the other one “Free.”

Animal Humane NM is open seven days a week, closed for lunch from noon to 1:00pm. They’re located at 615 Virginia St SE, Albuquerque.

Comments Off on Adopt a Dog or Cat on the Cheap

Do you like big dogs? Small dogs? Energetic dogs? Couch potato dogs?

Or maybe you don’t like dogs, at all. You’d rather have a cat who will sit in your lap and purr itself to sleep?

No matter your preference, Animal Humane New Mexico has the perfect pet for you. And, for a limited time, you can adopt any dog over six months old for just $50. Or, get any cat over seven months old for just $9.99! In both cases, the price includes spaying/neutering, vaccinations, and a microchip. You can’t beat that.

This promotion has no set end date, but will be available for at least a week.

Pets enrich our lives so much. Why not provide one of these loving animals with a good home today? It’s always hard to say “no” to these furry faces, but at these rates, it’s practically impossible!

Animal Humane NM is open seven days a week from 10:00am – 6:00pm (closed for lunch from noon – 1:00pm daily) and is located at 615 Virginia St SE, Albuquerque. More info: 255-5523.

Tell them ABQ on the Cheap sent you!
