Animal Humane is committed to saving as many lives as possible by minimizing the euthanasia of healthy, adoptable homeless pets across our state. We regularly transfer in pets at risk of euthanasia for space from shelters in Albuquerque and throughout the state as part of our Project Fetch program, and we proactively work to promote and advocate for the adoption of pets in our community.

Animal Humane New Mexico is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We are the state’s leading private animal welfare organization 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. Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Albuquerque – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.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.Say aloha to Albuquerque adoptable pets at the Bow Wow Meow Luau Adoption Event! From June 9 – 11, all pets at both Animal Humane New Mexico and all three Albuquerque Animal Welfare locations are available for a $5 adoption fee, that includes their vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery & microchip. Polynesian dance troupe Ka La Kapu and live remote radio broadcasting will be at select locations for this family-friendly event. Save the date and add to your ohana! You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Albuquerque pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Albuquerque is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Albuquerque animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.
With the goal of increasing shelter pet adoptions in 2017, Animal Humane New Mexico and the Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department will be hosting three-day Hawaiian themed adoption event called Bow Wow Meow Luau from June 9-11. All pets will be available for a $5 adoption fee, which includes their necessary vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery and microchip. With five locations across the city, the intent of the Community Partnership’s event is to find homes for all pets in Albuquerque animal shelters. Polynesian dance troupe Ka La Kapu and live remote radio broadcasting will be at select locations for this family-friendly event.
