  • You Can Save a Life This Summer

    Make a one-time donation: Submit You Can Save a Life This Summer 15 minutes. That is the time it takes for a pet’s body temperature to climb to lethal levels if left unattended in a parked car on a hot day. Each year, thousands of pet owners tragically learn how leaving their beloved pets in the car for a quick stop can have irreversible consequences. Even after a few minutes, what feels like a relatively mild temperature outside can become unbearably hot inside a parked car, even in the shade or with the windows cracked open. Throughout the year, Animal Humane New Mexico educates our community about the many ways to keep pets safe and healthy. By generously making a gift you will help us provide valuable information and services to pet owners and sustain our mission! If you find a pet in an unattended car, do what you can to locate the owner and call 911. If possible, return to the vehicle to monitor the pet’s condition and help responding authorities locate the vehicle. Please pass on this important message. Yours could be the voice that makes all the difference.
  • Will you give them a hand?

    Make a one-time donation: Submit Baxter, a young Hound/Great Pyrenees mix, came to our shelter last summer ready to give his love and devotion to a new owner. His sweet and attentive nature brought him interest from adopters, but over several weeks he still had not found his perfect fit… that is, until Chelsea and her four-year-old daughter Neeva arrived at Animal Humane New Mexico. Shortly after Neeva was born, her parents discovered that she could not hear. As she grew, her family adapted to using sign language, including the family pets. When they arrived at Animal Humane, they let our Adoptions Advisors know that their top priority was to find a dog who would be great with Neeva. As soon as Chelsea saw how calm and attentive Baxter was with Neeva, she knew they had found their little girl’s best friend. Neeva and Baxter are now inseparable, giving each other love, attention and support. Neeva has a constant companion who understands her and Baxter has a loving family. Your generous support makes happiness possible for dogs like Baxter and for the families who love them. More than 4,000 pets like Baxter will be adopted this year.  Let’s give them a hand and save their lives together!
  • Let’s be kind

    Make a one-time donation: Submit All of us have had special friends in our lives. Some of them walk on two legs, and some on four. They are all important, but it’s the four-footed ones that ask for nothing more than a full bowl, a warm bed and a gentle hand. These same friends sometimes need our help. Most people know that Animal Humane New Mexico provides life-saving medical treatment, shelter and loving homes to pets in need. Did you also know that your support helps prevent abuse and neglect from happening in the first place? Our K-12 Learn Humane curriculum teaches children (and adults) how to build caring and compassionate relationships with their pets. By teaching kids about kindness to pets right in their classroom, and having them here at our shelter for Camp Humane, we are raising the next generation of responsible pet lovers. Your kind, steady support makes all of it possible. With your help, Animal Humane will continue to provide life-saving care to pets and prevent the abuse and neglect of those who cannot help themselves. P.S. Do you know a child who loves pets? We would love to see them at Camp Humane this summer! Learn more here.
