Animal Humane New Mexico’s Donor-subsidized Clinic Services

 

Trap/Neuter/Return

Trap/Neuter/Return (TNR) is a comprehensive, ongoing program in which free-roaming & feral cats already living outdoors in cities, towns, & rural areas are humanely trapped, medically evaluated, vaccinated & sterilized by veterinarians, then returned to their original location.

Animal Humane endorses TNR as the only proven humane and effective method to manage feral cat colonies.

There is no charge for TNR services; however, there may be a small additional fee if the cat is not brought to the appointment in an acceptable trap. Our team can provide additional information on this when confirming your appointment. If you have additional questions, please see the FAQs below or email us at TNR@AnimalHumaneNM.org.

Our TNR services are generously supported by the Zimmer Feline Foundation.

Spay & Neuter Services

Animal Humane New Mexico strives to equalize access to veterinary resources. Our Spay/Neuter services are offered to needs-based qualifying clients. In addition to preventing certain cancers and infections, an early spay or neuter may reduce undesirable behaviors such as marking or inappropriate mounting.

Best of all, spaying or neutering is one of the most effective ways to decrease the number of unwanted animals that arrive at shelters each year.

Preventative Care

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.

If you are having difficulty making an appointment, need to cancel an existing appointment, or have questions about your pet’s recent surgery, please contact our Veterinary Clinic Team at 505.217.0300.

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.

For more information about veterinary telemedicine, please visit the American Veterinary Medical Association.

Making end-of-life decisions for your pet?

The Peaceful Paws program is a compassionate initiative designed to provide financial support to pet owners facing the difficult decision of euthanizing their beloved animal companions. This program eases the financial burden by offering assistance to cover the cost of euthanasia and cremation services. It aims to ensure that pet owners can say their final goodbyes to their pets in a dignified and caring manner without worrying about the financial aspect. There are no income requirements for this program, nor does a pet need to be at risk of surrender to qualify.
