We are a non-Profit 501(c)3 organization that
promotes humane education through community involvement. We serve all of Southeastern New Mexico. We take in lost, abandoned, and owner
relinquished companion animals and place
them up for adoption.
We are a limited-entry shelter. We are NOT a
no-kill shelter. We only take in animals we have room for and keep them as long as possible.
We are proud to say that we are partners with PetCo. We participate in Puppy Playdays at PetCo and they offer fundraising events and donations to help us with our mission. We also have an on-site cat adoption center, at PetCo, so people within our community are able to see the pets we offer for adoption. Thanks to PetCo, many pets have been adopted through this partnership.
Please support PetCo, as they have supported us. Click below, to go to their site.
