The original founders of Fur and Feather Animal Assistance have been helping animals in rural Catron County, NM for more than a decade. Despite being the largest county in New Mexico, there is no animal control, so our work is critical. In addition to spaying and neutering more than 1,500 animals since 2003 and matching hundreds of animals with loving families, Fur and Feather is dedicated to rescuing lost and abandoned animals, stepping in when pet owners pass away or become incapable of caring for their fur babies. Needless to say we are hard at work improving the conditions and lives of our animals on a daily basis. Our animal rescue relies on small grants and community donations to keep our program succeed. Opening a thrift store benefiting the animals will allow us the sustainability we need to achieve our long term goals for the nonprofit, without solely relying on donations.

Fur and Feather Gallery and Thrift will be located in Quemado NM and act as an information and event center as well as a thrift store. Under the guidance of both Sarah Ross (F+F CEO) and Nicole Long (Store Manager and Grants) the location will eventually host several community events such as family movie night, Farm to Fork Fundraisers, Animal meet and greet days, and more!  The profits from the store will go towards improving pens, expanding our 90 acre sanctuary, and making sure we have all the necessities to provide these animals with a safe and secure loving home.

Fur and Feather Animal Assistance, Inc (FFAA.INC) is now one of the largest sanctuaries in the State of New Mexico for small animals. We average anywhere from 55-70 or more dogs at any given time depending on our intake and number of adoptions.  Our cat population averages around 100 and even though most of them are up for adoption, many of the cats we take in will spend their lives living with us.

Our store will be accepting donations of food, bedding, toys, fencing, building materials, gently used clothing, tools, fabric, craft items, art and more!  This campaign will provide us with startup cost for Fur and Feather Gallery and Thrift. Along with permits and licensing, we will need things like hangars, racks, tags and other basic retail items to function on a daily basis. Please help us reach our goal of $1000 for store opening expenses.

When Laurie was still with you, she very kindly took in our Uncle Jack's two dogs for whom he could no longer care. Jack died last week, and we send this as a thank you from the family and in memory of him.
