Tax-deductible vehicle donations provide life-saving funds for homeless & at-risk pets and can be made easily through our partners at CARS!

The best part? Donating your vehicle is easy!

Simply complete the online form or call and speak with a CARS door support representative at 855.500.RIDE (7433) and designate Animal Humane New Mexico as the beneficiary of your donation. 

Through this program, we accept cars, motorcycles or trucks regardless of the condition and provide towing services for Albuquerque and surrounding areas. All you need is a clear title.

The law concerning vehicle donation tax claims has changed since 2005. Any vehicle sold for over $500.00 requires a 1098-C, which you will receive from the CARS office after your vehicle has sold, if applicable. If your vehicle sells for under $500.00, you may use your donation receipt, provided by CARS at the time of pick-up, to claim up to $500.00.
