Agree totally.

But to the reporter: I don't need to know how she got her house. Contact information for Animal Village and more about the adoptable pets they have would have been better! Perhaps the reporter could do a follow-up article with that?

I will never support her or that place. None of the vets in town will work with her and I have seen first hand her hatefulness after sending someone with a purebred, fixed, up to date shots schnauzer to her. She wanted $500 to take the dog and I am sure would turn around and ask the same to adopt it. She was rude to this lady. I tried several times ,when they first opened, to get in to help out for free. Never got a call back. Have another friend who adopted from them. The dog died three weeks later from parvo.They apparently have quite a problem with illness in that place. We have real rescues around here that aren't about money. I rarely comment so strongly against local businesses, but this one irkes me beyond belief.

Puppies who came down with parvo were placed for adoption at PetSense by the VET who takes in the county dogs. When the first ill puppy was removed from PetSense, he never notified them of the diagnosis. What's your answer to that? Do you know what the incubation period is for parvo? Are you so sure your friend's dog was exposed at AVNM? She takes in animals from shelters with unknown medical/vaccination histories and quarantines them until they have been brought up on their vaccinations. There are bleach mats at all inside/outside doors and hand sanitizer on the cage doors. She does all she humanly can, and she does a damn good job when you consider the number of animals she takes in and the number of people who think they can ignore the precautions she insists on.

Why should she have taken the schnauzer for free? If it was such a great dog her owners surely could have gotten a home for it. The stated mission of AVNM is to SAVE DOGS FROM DEATH ROW, not adopt out dogs for their owners who either don't want them or can no longer care for them. THAT is why she asks for the fee for them. Taking that dog would actually sentence a dog scheduled to die to death because she wouldn't have the space for it.

I guess Sunny is suppose to take in every dumped animal for free and have to pay for its care out of her pockets? Wow!

Exactly. I remember seeing posted in a previous thread about a dog with broken bones costing her nearly $2000 in vet bills (the vets here wouldn't even try the surgery - a vet in El Paso was responsible for the very successful surgery) that was adopted for $135, and another that was adopted for the same fee that had run nearly $800 in expenses. Those were just two examples, and I am sure there are many many more. There were puppies that came in, became sick, some lived and some died - the survivors adopted out for far less than the vet expenses incurred there.

She has SAVED HUNDREDS OF DOGS AND CATS FROM CERTAIN DEATH and is definitely not making a profit. Don't believe it? As a 401C3 the books are open to doubters.

There will always be those who have to put down anything someone does good, and spread half-truths and innuendos. And those without half a brain that believe it without investigating the FACTS for themselves.

I have yet to meet anyone in a professional area that has anything nice to say about this "rescue". And you feel free to explain to me why it would be $500 to take in a dog all up to date and fixed for that kind of money. You explain why they adopt out animals for the prices listed on the webpage and yet excpect that amount to be given when they take them in. I have worked with several of the other real rescues in this area and this is pure scamming. But you do what you do and I will stand by my opinion. Many others do as well.
Oh, and explain why not one vet here will work with her?

You think dog food is free? There is no telling how long Sunny would have to feed and house (electricity costs too) this dumped dog until it's adopted.

Why don't you get mad at the person that went back on their obligation to their beloved pet?? I can't stand people that adopt a pet only to give it up when they can't train it, it's crap must be picked up, it no longer matches the couch...blah, blah, blah. A pet is a FOREVER COMMITMENT

He never said that. He did say that he would have been your daddy if the dog hadn't beat him over the fence! LOL!

Please explain to all of us why a rescue whose stated mission is to save animals from being euthanized in shelters should be expected to take in family pets whose owners for whatever reason want to give them up. As has been pointed out, taking in these animals is a death sentence for the animal on death row that could be rescued instead. The owner is responsible for finding a new home for their pet - not this rescue. That is the reason for the fees, as has been explained to you. To discourage people who want to unload their pets from taking space from a death row dog or cat. Got it?

She and her partners and her rescue are well respected in the rescue community.

Please explain your statement that not one local vet will work with her. My local vet will and has, and has no problem. I know of one other who has expressed the same opinion and admires her for what she does. The reason she seldom uses local vets is that she has a good working relationship with one who is out of town, who provices immediate emergency care and discounts services whenever she can.

Sunny caused a sh*tload of trouble in Ruidoso. Hopefully she can go about her animal rescue and ditch the attitude and vindictiveness she displayed when she tried to take down the LCHS. She's a very intimidating woman.
