About Mike, Lisa and Sunshine Grooming

Mike and Lisa have been working for the animals and their community much of their lives.

In the mid-90's, Mike was chairman of the township's Playwicki Farm Committee in Philadelphia where he launched a grass-roots campaign to successfully save the farm land from developers.

Living in Deming, NM since the late 1990's, Mike and Lisa have found their passion working with the residents and animals of
Luna County.

During this time, they have worked with the local shelter, successfully produced a quality boarding and grooming facility for animals of all types and breed, joined the board of Deming Animal Guardians. As of January 2017, they have rescued more than 1,120 animal souls
under their care.

In early 2016, they approached Deming Animal Guardians to build the first 501(c)3 non profit, no kill shelter in Luna County and in October of 2016, they leased 1-acre of land to DAG and helped raise funds and volunteers to begin the installation of the first shelter building for DAGSHIP Rescue!

Now they condinue their passion to do even more ....

About Deming Animal Guardians

Deming Animal Guardians (DAG) is an all volunteer, IRS recognized charity that has been in existence since 1991.
Since we began, we've sponsored more than 13,400 spay/neuter surgeries.


Our focus is indigent pet owners in Luna County, New Mexico. 
Our goal is to improve the lives of these animals by making spay/neuter surgeries more affordable through discount coupons and mobile veterinary vans.  
Since Luna County has a high population of indigent pet owners, we target low-income pet owners only.

Our goal is to reduce the number of euthanasia at the local shelter by making responsible pet ownership a reality for low income pet owners and now we are thrilled to join forces with Sunshine Grooming to create the new and kind, no-kill rescue soon to be know as:
