About Our Fees
Animal Humane New Mexico is a private 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that receives no city, state or federal funding. We rely on revenue we generate to care for more than 4,500 pets annually. On average, the cost of care for a single pet’s stay in our shelter is $530. Adoption fees help us offset these costs. Every pet adopted from Animal Humane has been spayed/neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, health checked and loved.
