Local group finds homes for stray pets

A local animal placement group is working to find homes and new owners for animals in Quay County and beyond.

“We have placed dogs, cats and even horses in and out of the county,” said Christina Fleming, Tucumcari Animal Rescue coordinator. “We give animals like dogs that are scheduled for destruction a fighting chance at life.”

There are some wonderful animals that are just looking for a good home, Fleming said. She said the group is trying to prevent the destruction of these animals. Many times the animals have done nothing wrong, they were just not being taken care of or were picked up by animal control and not claimed by their owner.

Fleming said the group has been applying for non-profit status.
