Las Conchas fire update: Cochiti evacuation, boycott fireworks, pet haven

Cochiti is prepping for a mandatory evacuation. Los Alamos was evacuated this afternoon.

A Facebook event is circulating that invites people to “boycott fireworks of any kind this year in New Mexico!” The guest list has grown exponentially throughout the day. As of right now, almost 6,000 people are attending and about 400 are not.

The Española Valley Humane Society is taking in animal evacuees from the fire. From the news release:

We are accepting dogs, cats and caged pets from evacuees and serving as a staging location for poultry, horses, donkeys, goats and sheep in small numbers. If you or someone you know is evacuating, please have them call us, so we can give them important information about the evacuation process for pets. Call 505-753-8662 or 470-1278.

Donations of cash, dry food, non-clumping cat litter, paper bowls, crates, cat litter boxes and towels are appreciated. The shelter is seeking people who may be able to temporarily house an animal. If you’re willing, send an email to

Updates from the shelter are also available on Facebook.
