Mission:

The mission of Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico is to rescue, rehabilitate and place for adoption small companion dogs. Our goal is to place these dogs in loving, forever homes and to do this through a rigorous screening and adoption process. We operate strictly through volunteerism, counting on the generosity of others and of ourselves to further our mission.

Results:

As a network of caring foster homes where our dogs are temporarily homed and socialized, and not kenneled, we screen applicants so that our dogs will be accepted by the adopting family. We collaborate with other state-wide rescues to save New Mexico dogs that come from many sources: animal shelters, owner surrenders, and actual abusive situations. To date we have placed over 230 dogs in loving forever homes in 2013. Since 2001, we have saved thousands of New Mexico shelter dogs.

Target demographics:

save New Mexico Shelter Dogs

Direct beneficiaries per year:

194 rescued dogs - by successfully adopting them into loving forever homes.

Geographic areas served:

Albuqerque, New Mexico

Programs:

rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of small companion dogs.

An excellent group comprised totally of committed volunteers! I 've been priveledged to be a part of this Wonderful Non Profit Organization for a year now, and the experience has changed my life! We work on rescuing small dogs from high kill shelters, owner surrenders and training them to be highly adoptable dogs. The success rate of finding these dogs furever homes is, i think, 100%! Its a real priveledge to b a part of LapDog Rescue NM !

Three of our four canine children have come from Lap Dog Rescue. The foster parents and coordinators of this program have huge hearts. It is obvious that the dogs whom the group rescues and fosters have been very well loved and taken care of during their fostering. Because of the group's organizational and professional skills, the adoption process is easy to navigate. In addition, the group maintains an inspiring and informative Facebook page.

We adopted our sweet terrier from Lap Dog Rescue. Dealing with them was a piece of cake. Had all the records together & were able to facilitate the adoption but at the same time were careful about whose home they were placing the dog. A fine example of a successful organization with a heart.

I absolutely love Lap Dog Rescue. When my old shih-tzu passed away, I wanted a companion to keep my younger shih-tzu company. I called and described my situation, my home, my dog, and what I was looking for. In a few days Rocky was brought over to my house. It was a perfect fit! He's an amazing dog, and fitted so well to my family. I'm so glad I was able to give him a loving, forever home.

Talk about personal! I called and shared my story, hoping to find a good fit. My older dog had passed away (she was 16), and my younger dog (6) was lonely and bored. I was immediately given several options on dogs that would be a good fit. Later that weekend, we had an in-house "interview" with Rocky, a sweet shih-tzu mix. Several monthly later, they're best of friends! The whole process was very refined, professional, and honest. Couldn't recommend them more.

Lap dog rescue blessed me with Gidget, a deaf pug that I just adore!!!!❤. She came to me just after I lost my Winston pug man, and she rescued me right back. Thank you for all you do for our fur babies and US! I am hoping to find another pug that needs a forever home, as we both need one more to be complete. ❤❤❤ great work saving lives...like mine!

We adopted Enzo and Herc (now known as Max). They are sweet little pets and we couldn't be happier. Thank you LDRNM for providing the foster families for these two little sweeties. We love them very much.

This organization is amazing! Brian was so kind and helpful and supportive of my situation. I had nowhere else to turn to find my pug a good home and without this organization, don't know what I would have done. They absolutely deserve all the pats on the back they can get!
