Shelter Veterinary Clinic
Changes to Animal Humane New Mexico’s Clinic Services
Nationwide, a shortage of veterinary professionals is affecting pet lovers and the cats & dogs they care for. Unfortunately, as a result, Animal Humane must currently announce changes to Veterinary Clinic operations.
We will continue focusing on our mission, to provide homeless shelter pets with needed veterinary care while they wait for their new homes. However, given the shortage of veterinary staff, we are currently unable to provide ongoing management for client-owned pets.
Please check back regularly for updates to our veterinary health programs & services.

Telemedicine for Pets
Telemedicine is a new & growing field that has expanded into the realm of veterinary care. The scope of these programs is often limited and they are not a replacement for regular, in-person veterinary care. However, these services may be able to assist you with non-urgent concerns.
Animal Humane New Mexico does not partner directly with any veterinary telemedicine provider, and this list should not be considered an endorsement of any service. If in doubt, please visit one of the local emergency veterinary clinics listed in the Emergency Care section.
