When I moved to Edgewood a year ago I knew I wanted to do a lot with animal rescue and assisting animals in need. I was already spending time at Walkin' in Circles Ranch, a horse rescue located about 10 miles north of Edgewood. Shortly after settling in I started volunteering at Animal Control in town cleaning cat cages one morning a week. Then coincidentally I met a woman at the laundromat in Moriarty who told me about FEVA. I was intrigued with the concept of a small group dedicated people working together to improve the lives of Estancia Valley animals in several different areas. I was even more impressed after I attended a FEVA meeting. These people were committed providing pet food thru the food bank, promoting spaying and neutering with financial assistance and also aiding owners of sick and injured pets who needed some financial help treating the animals they loved. Suddenly I was selling raffle tickets, attending fund raising events and generally involving myself in the activities of the FEVA group. It's an understatement to say that it is very rewarding and personally satisfying to know you have done something positive to assist a suffering animal and their owners. Please think about attending a meeting to see if this might be a worthwhile way to spend some of your time. You are welcome to involve yourself in as many of our activities as you wish. We would love to greet you and include you in our meeting with no obligation to join if you decide this is not for you. Please call me for more information.
