What do we need for our trip?


  • Desert Willow Aussies, with the help of Chris Cole, a childhood friend and owner of DWA Picket Cole and Odyssey Trails,
    are excited to bring our human and canine family together for a spectacular weekend like none other. 

    Get your calendars and mark June 28 - July 2, 2013. Plan to spend a few days together full of fun filled activities
    all centered at the Elkhorn Lodge in beautiful Chama, New Mexico, located near the Colorado Border.

    We have many wonderful "unique" activities planned just for you. Our Desert Willow Aussie community is the best~!
    We all look forward to meeting so many Kennel Friends and their DWA's we've grown close to on Facebook "Face to Face".

    Space is limited during the summer tourist season so put a room on hold right away. Please note that you are able to cancel
    with no fee up to 48 hours ahead (But seriously, why would you want to?!)
    All participating lodges have waived their pet fees for our group.

    We're gonna have a "Dog-Gone" BLAST!

    The town of Chama has been very receptive to us.  We have restaurants who will grant us a discount to dine in their space
    and we hope to have Free dog-care handled by the Chama Animal Humane Society when we want an Aussie-free moment
    during special activities.

    This will be a spectacular weekend designed especially for YOU, your family and your DWA!
    This is not a FANCY affair, so bring your boots, jeans and get ready to enjoy our time together the "Old West" way.

A portion of all proceeds will be donated to:
"The Chama Valley Animal Humane Society"
Serving Northern New Mexico

We encourage you to Support The Humane Society "Foster to Adopt" Program


The Chama Valley Humane Society was founded in 1998. Our mission is to provide no-kill solutions to reduce the population of homeless cats and dogs by sponsoring a spay and neuter program for companion pets and feral cats, working with regional shelters and foster homes to rehabilitate and rehome animals, and educating those in the community we serve about responsible pet ownership.
We are an all-volunteer 501(c)3 organization supported entirely through private donations, memberships, fundraising, and grants.

We serve a 600 square mile area of northern Rio Arriba County, New Mexico. We do not have a shelter--all rescued animals are
fostered locally until they can be adopted or transferred to other, preferably no- or low-kill shelters.

Don't forget to Support The Humane Society Foster to Adopt Program
