Sponsor Buzz!

Buzz, a two-year-old Rhodesian Ridgeback, and his brother were found abandoned in the New Mexico desert when they were just a few months old. Little brother was adopted, but Buzz is another one of those guys who never could see the sense of letting humans touch him.

He's utterly beautiful, sweet-natured, and cooperative. Takes treats from the staffs' hands, plays happily with the other dogs and sometimes joyously romps alone with his big rope toy. Buzz lives inside and outside, as he wishes, but even after 2 years, if the staff sneaks in a light touch, he leaps sideways! So, of course, he's not on the adoption roster. But he could really use and would be happy for a sponsor -- just no petting, please!

Buzz is spending his days with Bridging The Worlds, an animal sanctuary, in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Their mission is to alleviate animal suffering by providing sanctuary from abuse, neglect, and homelessness; to end the killing of healthy animals as a method of population control; and to teach that animals are intrinsically valuable, worthy of respect, compassion, and care.

Currently their efforts are focused on dogs, who live safe and free while they recover physical health and emotional harmony. All are spayed or neutered, receive appropriate veterinary care and excellent nutrition. No cages, no chains. They have 35 snugly fenced acres where they are taken to run and play. Most of them live among the staff – free to snooze indoors on hot days and cold nights, welcome to take refuge from Summer or Winter storms in their house and offices, or tucked into their own houses in their own yards, as they choose.

As needed, the pups receive homeopathic and herbal remedies, nutritional supplements, chiropractic treatment, acupuncture, and western medicines to address acute or chronic physical or behavioral symptoms. When they are ready, the staff helps them to join new human families.
