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.

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.
