Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak (COVID-19) and the latest recommendations from the CDC,


We will NOT be taking any new cats / dogs in while we are closed.

If you need to release an animal please contact us

so we can discuss further option.

If you LOST your pet, please check Roswell Animal Services, local veterinarians, local groomers, and Facebook.

Any other questions please reach us by our Facebook page, through messenger, e-mail us at rhumane@dfn.com, or call and leave a message at 575-622-8950.

Welcome to the Roswell Humane Society,  in
the heart of UFO Country,  Roswell, New Mexico,
703 East McGaffey Street
Roswell NM 88203


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.

UPDATE!  3-19-2020

We have decided it is in the best interest of the animals in our care to still try to find them loving homes through this difficult time.

If there is a fur baby on our page or website that interests you we CAN schedule a time for an introduction, however we still have restrictions:

-All introductions MUST BE SCHEDULED! Please be patient with us and call and leave a voicemail, send an e-mail, or message us through messenger about who you are interested in.

-The group for the meet and greet and/or introduction must be no more than 5 people total.

-Everyone in the group must be healthy. Anyone showing symptoms of the Corona virus will politely be asked to leave for the safety of others and our staff.
