Project Fetch

Animal Humane is committed to saving more lives, and not just in Albuquerque where our offices and adoption sites are located. Project Fetch is a critical program serving shelters throughout our State.

 SpayNM logoIt is a flagship program that exemplifies why we are named “Animal Humane New Mexico.” Since 2008, over 4,500 pets have made the life-saving journey from shelters in Roswell, Artesia, Torrance County, Mesilla Valley (Las Cruces), Gallup, Aztec, Chama, Santa Fe, Espanola, Clovis, Artesia, Carrizozo, and Valencia County to name a few. We also regularly transfer in pets from our partners at the City of Albuquerque, Los Ranchos, and Rio Rancho Shelters.


In most cases, once the transfer has been approved, volunteers or staff from these shelters bring the animals to us. When transferring from Roswell Humane Society, our staff goes there to assess and select the animals for transport, bringing them back in Moby, our mobile adoption vehicle. All animals must be pre-approved by our Adoption Director and have received their vaccinations at least 72 hours in advance. For more information on this program, please contact Sam Blankenship, Adoptions Director at 505-938-7901 or samb@animalhumanenm.org.
