Get Involved

There are so many ways you can help homeless pets.  We depend on over 400 active volunteers who help us in every department, partner with many businesses that help us raise funds through a variety of events and appreciate the thousands of friends who share the pets in our care on social media.

Nobody can do everything…but everyone can do something for homeless pets.

Join our family of over 400 volunteers and make a difference in the lives of New Mexico’s pets. Whether you prefer working with computers or cameras, pets or people, chances are we have a way for you to get involved!


Every year, we host dozens of events. You can dash with your dog at our annual Doggie Dash & Dawdle,  dine at local restaurants while raising funds for the pets in our care, or help us empty our shelter at one of our massive Adoption Events.
