We are what we do…Let’s be kind.

Make a one-time donation: Submit At Animal Humane, we know and treasure the impact your support has on the lives of the pets in our care. Whether it’s the time and attention they receive on walks or during cuddle sessions, the handmade blankets that keep them cozy, or the care and tenderness they receive because of your generosity, each dog & cat in our shelter receives an abundance of love. We want every pet, now and in the future, to know the warmth of human kindness and to have the unconditional love they give returned to them. That’s why we promote these values throughout our community with education and outreach. Through our Learn Humane program, we teach children (and adults) how to build caring relationships and lifelong bonds with pets. In classrooms throughout our community, and right here at our shelter with Camp Humane, we provide engaging lessons that inspire young people to learn more about animal welfare. Along the way, we also cultivate in them the kindness that will benefit all living creatures for years to come. Likewise, your compassionate act today has a deep and lasting impact. Let’s continue teaching children compassion for pets and people. P.S. To learn more about Camp Humane and this summer’s sessions, click here.

Raj continues to be surrounded by love

Raj continues to be surrounded by love

Make a one-time donation: Submit Last year, we told you the story of Raj, a gentle American Pit Bull mix who stole our hearts with his amazing resiliency and boundless love. Raj lost one eye to a traumatic injury when he was one and, at the age of three, he lost the other after being poisoned alongside his brothers in his backyard. A neighbor intervened and brought Raj, the only survivor, to Animal Humane to receive the medical treatment he desperately needed. In our care, and now facing a completely sightless world, Raj nevertheless showered our Team with an abundance of love that belied the trauma he had endured. Two months later, he was adopted by a wonderful couple who heard his story, met and fell in love with Raj. Today, after more than a year together, Raj’s parents shared that they remain deeply thankful that Raj is in their lives. They simply adore the way he runs in circles when he gets excited, or how he still insists on being cuddled in their laps like a dog half his size. Your support helps us turn challenges into triumphs for cats and dogs throughout New Mexico. As Raj’s inspiring life affirms, your generosity makes a lasting difference!

Double the Love

Double the Love

Make a one-time donation: Submit Gypsy is a fearless Siamese cat who came to us as a stray at only two months of age. After receiving weeks of tender care in the home of one of our Foster Care families, she returned to our shelter and was quickly adopted. Khaleesi, a sweet American Staffordshire Terrier, was battling a parasitic infection in her left eye when we transferred her from the Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department. In our care, Khaleesi bravely underwent months of medical treatment to save her remaining eye and behavior training to ease her fears. Gypsy’s mom, who had since become an Animal Humane employee, was drawn to Khaleesi’s gentle demeanor but was unsure if the pair would be compatible. She brought Khaleesi home through our Foster-to-Adopt program and was thrilled when the two snuggled and became fast friends. Help us bring more soulmates together in 2017 by making an Annual Fund Drive gift today! Your generosity will provide thousands of pets with the care they need and the love they deserve. Gypsy and Khaleesi are now constant companions, enjoying their lives free from pain and fear — and filled with love. Your compassion has the power to unite even the most unlikely of hearts. On behalf of the pets who receive a second chance due to your compassion, we thank you!

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.
