  • Give the gift of hope to homeless pets

    Make a one-time donation: Submit On a cold night last winter, a good Samaritan found newborn Rose and her six siblings in a box, abandoned in a remote area of town. Arriving malnourished and undersized, Rose and her littermates were each carefully nurtured by our Foster Care Team until they were adopted. Thanks to you, we sheltered over 4,000 homeless pets this year and provided them the care and love they needed to find their forever homes. Our work is not finished. While thousands of pets have been saved in 2016, more will need your help in 2017. This holiday season, you have the opportunity to double your impact on the lives of New Mexico’s homeless pets! A generous group of donors has committed to matching $20,000 in gifts made by December 31. Today, Rose is healthy, happy and most importantly — loved! She is creating wonderful memories with her new family thanks to the support of compassionate individuals like you and our dedicated Team who helped her blossom and thrive. Your generosity transforms lives. Thank you for making a real difference this holiday season.
  • Give the gift of hope to homeless pets

    Make a one-time donation: Submit The holidays are a time of giving, compassion and sharing special moments with the ones we love. At Animal Humane, we are grateful for the generosity shown each holiday season, as your gifts enable us to shelter, heal and ultimately save more lives. Pets like Tiger Lily, a brown Tabby who came to us as a stray with an infection so severe it caused her left eye to rupture. Tiger Lily also suffered from persistent respiratory congestion, which had to be treated and cleared before our Clinic Team could perform surgery to remove her damaged eye. Even when healing and a new home may initially seem out of reach, your generosity ensures that over 4,000 pets just like Tiger Lily receive the gift of hope at Animal Humane each year. With love and care, Tiger Lily healed quickly from surgery and had time to adjust to her new view on the world before being adopted. The gift of your compassion makes an important difference! Wishing you a safe and joyous holiday season.
  • Doggie Dash & Dawdle 2016!

    Make a one-time donation: Submit As a caring pet friend, you already know that having a cat or dog is about more than just giving them a safe and loving home with nutritious food and a comfortable bed — it’s about spending quality time together, creating memories, and sharing life’s ups and downs. For 33 years, Animal Humane New Mexico has commemorated the special bond we enjoy with our feline and canine companions at our signature fundraising event, Doggie Dash & Dawdle. On Sunday, November 6, 2016, our 34th Annual Doggie Dash & Dawdle will celebrate all the ways we share our lives with pets. We hope you will join us in celebration by registering or making a donation in honor of the thousands of pets who — because of your help — will experience their first ever evening walk, movie night, Saturday hike, study session or afternoon nap with their new best friend. By supporting Doggie Dash, you are helping Animal Humane give pets everything they need to transition from homelessness and uncertainty to a new family and security. Your donation, at any level, helps provide quality medical treatment, nutritious food, comfortable lodging, behavior and enrichment activities and oodles of love for the pets in our care. Thank you for your dedication, and we hope to see you on November 6!
