balloon


Every year on the last full weekend in October, as the trees in the high country surrounding this historic village erupt into a painter's canvas of oranges, reds, ambers and yellows, even more color is added to the vista as the Taos skies are filled with dozens of brightly colored hot air balloons lifting into the clear, cold dawn of a Taos Mountain sunrise.

The Taos Mountain Balloon Rally Association, the non-profit group that organizes and puts on the event each year, is a small, dedicated group of volunteers who work nearly year-round to make sure the rally is safe, filled with events and experiences and visiting pilots, crews and families are given the best in Taos hospitality. Local businesses donate thousands of dollars in sponsorship and lodging for the pilots and crews. Other businesses, artists and crafts people donate prizes, auction items and more. The Taos Mountain Balloon Rally is truly a Taos community event! This year, 2014 marks the 32nd Annual Taos Mountain Balloon Rally. Smaller than many such events, the Taos Mountain Balloon Rally typically hosts 35-50 balloons and crew each year. The rally, primarily because it

Each Saturday morning from 9:00 am to 11:00 am a dedicated group of volunteers go to the shelter, choose a dog, and make their way down to the Plaza to the Farmers Market. They parade their shelter dogs among the crowd proudly in the hopes of finding them a home.

This year some very talented volunteers got together and made bright yellow, “Adopt Me” vests for the dogs to wear. The effort paid off and several dogs, and a few kittens were adopted as a result of their exposure at the market.

The dogs that didn’t get adopted still had a great time getting one on one attention from the public and the volunteer that took them. It’s a nice way to spend a Saturday morning.

homegarden

Stray Hearts was invited to attend the Home and Garden Expo held at the Youth and Family center. This event attracted a wide variety of people ranging from professional contractors to families with young children. We had several volunteers bring dogs and cats in an effort to get them adopted.

The animals were a big hit. Lots of people came by to meet them and one of our long term resident adult cats was later adopted.

These events are great exposure for the animals and the organization. It’s a good opportunity to educate the public about the shelter, our message and the animals we care for.
