We hope that you will become part of the SWAT Family.  Every adopter is part of rescue. Adopters take our dogs and “finish” their rescue by making them family members. We are proud of our many wonderful adopters — without them, we could not continue our work. Updates from happy adopters about life with their companions makes all of the hard work worthwhile.


DATE:            Thursday, December 26th

TIME:             12 Noon – 2:30 -3:00pm

WHERE:        MSRG Patrick Smith Park, Santa Fe (Directions below)

Well, it’s our 16th Annual Walk of our terrific Airedales!  We’ll meet at noon, get our ‘dales reacquainted, and at promptly 12:30 we’ll start the walk down Canyon Road to the Plaza.  We’ll let the canines stroll (and show off of course!), for a few minutes, then start back up to our meeting place.  If you don’t feel your ‘dale can do the entire walk, go down Canyon Road to Paseo de Peralta and turn around and come back, or look for Will who will be driving the route and will pick up and return you and your ‘dale to the park.

Bring a little “something” to share and we’ll catch up on Airedale tales.  No need to RSVP; any questions, please call Connie’s cell (505) 660-7293 and don’t forget bags for the predictable ‘dale doo!!


Directions:  Take INTERSTATE HWY 25 to the St. Francis Dr. exit, go to Alameda and turn right toward downtown.  After you pass Palace Avenue, you will see the park on your right.  Go approximately ¼ mile and turn into the parking lot. There is a wooden sign, (high up), with MSRG Patrick Smith Park.  For those coming from the North, take St. Francis Dr. south to Alameda, turn left and follow above directions.

I wish you the happiest of holidays.
