Violet Crown Santa Fe


Kendall the kitten will never be in want of entertainment! We envision her as the star of many puppet shows and home theater productions - with a lot of kitty costumes. Coincidentally, Kendall was adopted from our event at Violet Crown Santa Fe movie theater 😂
Lady, the love of everyone at our shelter, finally found her forever. This sweet-as-pie gal has helped other dogs feel more at home in our care, and she’s been the first that new shelter dogs have been introduced to - since she seems to love absolutely everyone, she’s been able to give us a sense of how new dogs interact with others. Thank you for your service to our staff and dogs, Lady - it’s high time you get to call a home, and a family, your own! Congratulations to Susan for finding a perfect match in Lady - lucky stars, both of you 💫

Adopted during our event at Violet Crown Santa Fe!
It was great to be back in Santa Fe for an adoption event at Violet Crown Santa Fe! Thank you so much for inviting us to such a great and welcoming location. Kim was one of nine lucky kittens and puppies who found loving homes with wonderful families. Larkin and her family said it was great to have another female in the home :) Watch for more adoption locations in Santa Fe in the coming weeks! We love to bring our pups and kittens to you - but also enjoy it when you come to visit. That's us - more love per paw. #adopt #fureverhome
Don’t forget! See you at Violet Crown Santa Fe on Saturday!
Santa Fe! See you Saturday 2/19 at Violet Crown Santa Fe from 9am-noon with pups and kitties available for adoption!

The Santa Fe New Mexican picked up our story about Kareem’s miraculous adoption. Work hard. Invite magic. Create alchemy. ✨⚡️✨

Violet Crown Santa Fe
A New Year coming home story of hard work, hopeful hearts, and a magic spark of serendipity: Kareem. During these days of resolutions, sometimes some of us feel less like we’re crushing our goals and more like we’re being crushed by them. So goes the story with Kareem, who became the face of our hopes and dedication … and our struggle and disappointment too. Our staff has been working tirelessly since July 7 to find this guy a home:

*Intake date: 7/7/21, stray dog
*Adoption events attended: 11
*Foster homes: 4
*Features: newspapers multiple times, social media more times than we can count, eblasts, website.
*Number of his photos above desks and phones with his face as the Lock Screen: not sure, but many.

He was everyone’s special project, but it seemed like no matter how hard we tried collectively and individually, he just wasn’t getting adopted. It was frustrating and demoralizing and it felt like nearly six months of daily work wasn’t enough.

On his 11th adoption event just before Christmas at Violet Crown Santa Fe, there was again no interest in him. The goal was crushing us: the hard work wasn’t paying off, and Kareem would wake up in 2022 in a kennel again.

But then Autumn, a staff member at Violet Crown, woke up that morning of the event and realized she had left her wallet at work the night before. She arrived to retrieve it, and found the adoption event winding down. And then, something serendipitous happened: she saw Kareem, and the magic spark kindled. She hadn’t been looking for a dog, but always knew she wanted a furry companion - and Kareem, now Bernie, was that one she’s always wanted.

The point of this story is that sometimes, hard work seems futile. But sometimes all that hard work needs is alchemy. Kareem says thank you to everyone who didn’t give up on him, to his new mom for forgetting her wallet, and to those sparks of serendipity that change your life forever. Happy New Year from all of us to all of you. Work hard, invite magic.
Speaking of "two-fers" Earl and Jane decided that two kittens are always twice the fun and went with Aspen and Colby during our special Toyota of Santa Fe adoption event hosted by our friends at Violet Crown Santa Fe on Saturday! We had such a blast and we know that Jane and Earl will have fun keeping up with these two. We have plenty more kittens and puppies at the shelter. Please #adopt!

TONIGHT at 7PM we continue our First Looks Series with Smooth Talk.

The series highlights the feature directorial debuts of filmmakers whose work continues to significantly impact film culture.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance, Smooth Talk captures the thrill and terror of adolescent sexual exploration as it transforms the ingredients of a standard coming-of-age portrait into something altogether more troubling and profound.

"The film’s power is enormous throughout; spare means (long-held closeups, a four-minute take of sisterly confessions) evoke a drama that seems to have been filmed holding its breath." - Richard Brody, The New Yorker.

Tonight at 7:00pm we are playing New Worlds: The Cradle of Civilization for one night only!

On a glorious Greek evening, screen legend Bill Murray and world-renowned cellist Jan Vogler rock the Acropolis with a timeless mix of poetry and music. Captured on film by director Andrew Muscato, Murray and Vogler are joined by the dazzling Mira Wang (violin) and dynamic Vanessa Perez (piano). The international quartet enchants the Athenian audience from the 2,000 year-old stage of the Odeon of Herodes Atticus with musical reflections on love, hope and heartbreak. Spanning from Bach to Van Morrison, Whitman to West Side Story, the wildly entertaining, humorous and deeply touching program is infused with the one-of-a-kind charm of Bill Murray.
The concert-documentary film, part of the Official Selection of the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, is of the final performance in Athens of Bill Murray and Jan Vogler’s performance New Worlds: The Cradle of Civilization. The film is directed by Andrew Muscato and filmed at the Odeon of Herodes Atticus overlooking the city of Athens.
