Description:
RAINBOW (female) and STASH (male) met in foster care, dated and solidified their relationship at CATOPIA (wedding date tba ;-). They need to spend their lives adopted together. Both are great in the house, a little shy until they know you. Both are SUPER SWEET and a little talkative! They spend all their time together. Stash is good with his hands and uses them for useful things and playtime ;-) 

Stash is a tuxedo and is aptly named after his white mustache ;-) Rainbow is all black (and who wants to be named as a shadow ?)…...so we gave the name Rainbow to exemplify her beautiful personality.

Stash will initiate many deep snuggle times with you. (He prefers to do the initiating). He will start by reaching his paws up like a child does and wait for you to pick him up into your arms. If youre not a person who will appreciate this even after youre back to a "normal" post-covid lifestyle, then please dont apply.

Rainbow is very sweet and gentle. When she settles in and feels safe, her kitten-like behavior will start to show. She likes being petted and some cuddling, but youll have to initiate it. Rainbow has developed a food allergy and we have begun experimenting with different foods at the veterinarians guidance. The allergy is causing her hair to fall out in little patches. The food the vet wants her on is hydrogenated protein and grain free. There are several brands around $2 per can. Were looking into a possible homemade/ more tastier version as well. Because of the food allergy, we are listing her as special needs.

Rainbow and Stash sleep together and like spending their time together. They are excellent with friendly cats and dogs.  Both are from one of the reservations we work with - Stash was found with his littermates and mom (they were abandoned) and Rainbow was abandoned by a lake there. They met in foster care and the rest is history as they say, long-lasting love ;-)

Their adoption fee includes their vaccinations, neuter/spay, deworming and microchips. Rainbows birthday is 2017. Stashs birthday is 2016.

We have specific ADOPTION and COVID rules listed below.

Revised adoption policy
Due to Covid -19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, weve revised our adoption policy. 

First, please email (desertpawsnm@gmail.com) to inquire before you fill out the online application to see if the pet is still available. (Please do not call or text). Well send you a link to the application.

We are unable to do multi-dog/cat meetgreets or adoption events at this time or bring a variety of animals to your house to choose from, so please only inquire if youre serious about adopting these particular kitties. If youre just shopping around with several shelters and rescues, please let us know this. 

If your application is approved (which "could" take up to one week) then we will contact you to set up a Zoom chat or ph call to answer questions/clarify anything and set up a day/time to bring the pet to you. 

Since we cant come into the home due to Covid-19, we ask that you send us pics /video of your home/living area/current pets. 

We will discuss with you about meeting your other pets. At the meeting/adoption at your house (outside) please wear a mask (as will we), keep to a properly distanced social distance and have hand sanitizer. We will bring the pet to your door in a carrier, we can chat from a (masked) distance and you bring the cats in the cat carrier into your house and probably into a prepared guest room. We will wait in the car while you get the kitties set up and possibly start getting acquainted (some cats will engage right away others will need more quiet time to observe/get acclimated). If everything goes well, youll bring the carrier back out and sign the adoption contract. We like to stay in touch.

We adopt locally to Central Abq, Santa Fe, Los Alamos and Rio Rancho. No out of area adoptions inquiries please. No young children for our adoptions please. 

Our animals are fostered and our foster families like to know their fosters are happy, healthy, and cared for during their lifetime. We appreciate staying in touch periodically (just a pic, holiday card, social media, pics/videos  etc will make our work worthwhile :-))

Our volunteers and adoption board are working diligently with an overload of inquiries since Covid to match families and forever pets. Our workload on the reservations has also increased. Were sorry, but if you email us with questions that are already answered here or fill out an application that does not fit the parameters of our procedures we will not be able to reply to you. Thank you for your understanding on this!

Thank you - we look forward to hearing from you and having more furbabies united with furever families!
