Navajo hosted its first ever pet carnival on June 13th, including contests and a cake walk-like "pet walk" for pets and their people. Prizes for the cutest and most obedient pets were handed out, as well as information about being a responsible pet owner.
The goal of the event, according to organizer Prestene Garnenez, was to celebrate the many positive aspects of pet ownership and to help community members understand the need to license and care for their pets according to local laws. Navajo Nation Animal Control officers participated in the day to help deliver the messages.
About 40 people attended the carnival and 10 four legged critters. Everyone enjoyed being active and seeing the animals have fun and interact with each other instead of being tied up. Organizations and individuals supported the event with donations of food, toys and other supplies.
Although the turnout was modest, Garnenez felt it was good for the community. The member of the Red Lake-Navajo Community Action Group explained that the organization's mission is to make the area a better place to live--for people AND pets.
Puppy season has hit the Navajo Nation, and these lucky pups were part of a group of 16 rescued by staffers and volunteers Michaela Brady, Elaine Begay and Debbie Beno last weekend.
Rescue groups Soul Survivors Animal Rescue in Cave Creek Arizona (thank you Pam Hartney) and High Country Puppy Rescue (thank you Sara Bruns) made room for the wiggly guys after transport services courtesy of Michaela, Jacqueline Vaughn and Bette Jo Read. At one point all 16 little ones were piled into Michaela's Kia Soul, which will forevermore be referred to either as the Rez Rocket or the Rez Runner!
This weekend operation would not have been possible without the dedication of the rescuers, transporters and partner organizations who came together to save these little lives. In addition to those mentioned, we send our heartfelt thanks to Mondo and Shondiin Silversmith and Courtney Allen too.
