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:

A few years ago, I found a tiny spaniel puppy in a parking lot puddle on my way to work. After discovering that he had no chip, and neighborhood signs didn't get any results, someone at work recommended I contact Lap Dog Rescue.

After signing up as a foster, and getting Gizmo vetted, Gizmo found his forever home, with a family with young boys for him to play with. I've been a foster ever since.

LDRNM helps smaller dogs find their forever home. No drama, and no politics.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I wish LDRNM could clone itself, so they could save even more dogs than they do now.

Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico has taken many animals from the Clovis High Kill Shelter and found them homes. They make sure each animal is fully vetted and in healthy condition before being approved for adoption, This rescue takes the time to make sure each animal has found a home that will love, protect and keep the animal healthy. This is an amazing rescue and I am proud to be able to nominate them.

This is the best organization ever. Even before Facebook, they had the best website. They make people aware of the need for rescue organizations. They have great-big hearts. They give so much of their time and themselves. I found a stray. I surely didn't want to take him to a shelter since he was an older guy. They helped me with a courtesy post and some great advice. I ended up getting this little guy to a good place. These are good people who do great things. We should all aspire to give back like they do.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I should volunteer here. They are the best.

Lap Dog Rescue of NM is one of the best dog rescue organizations I've ever come in contact with. They seriously care about their mission and care about these animals. I've rescued two dogs through them and both experiences were great. They weren't just trying to get rid of the animals and give me the first one, they really looked into my living style, home, etc. and helped me pick the two best 4-legged babies ever. The medical and dental care the dogs received while being fostered was awesome, and they even gave me great advice when one of my dogs had adjustment issues. They are professionals all the way.

I had such a wonderful experience with adopting our two sweet dogs from Lap Dog Rescue of NM! Everyone I dealt with was friendly, kind and very loving to their foster dogs. We are very blessed to have our two puppies and we are doubly blessed to have gotten them through Lap Dog Rescue of NM!

I was (before I moved away) a volunteer foster with Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico. My two dogs were adopted from LDRNM. It's a great organization that works miracles for dogs and, of course, for the dogs forever families. I will continue to donate money although, as long as I live in a different state, I will not be able to volunteer.
