Animal Humane New Mexico is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We are the state’s leading private animal welfare agency serving cats, dogs and their families. From our main campus in Albuquerque, we partner with shelters across the state to rescue homeless pets. Since January 2010, we have successfully re-homed 100% of the healthy pets in our care! We support every cat and dog at Animal Humane with outstanding veterinary, social and emotional care and, most importantly, LOVE until they are adopted by their new forever families.

It is our mission to support and improve the lives of New Mexico’s cats and dogs through comforting shelter, thoughtful adoptions, humane education and full-service veterinary care. We envision a society in which every animal is treated with respect and compassion.

With state-of-the-art facilities on our beautiful four-acre Main Campus, and a new adoption center on Albuquerque’s Westside, we deliver innovative programs that comprise our wide variety of compassionate services, making Animal Humane a national leader in animal welfare.
