I am so happy to have the opportunity to tell you what a wonderful organization Animal Humane New Mexico is. I have been a supporter of the organization for many years and all my four legged friends have been residents there prior to living with me. So, I feel qualified to say that this organization excels in all areas. They are beloved in the community for their commitment to small animals having the support of the local news media, many business establishments and countless friends like me. They use their funds efficiently, having recently completed a new “Cat House,” opening a new, hugely successful, satellite location in another part of town and more recently another satellite in still another location! AHNM was actually approached by the owner of one of these locations and asked to become a resident, at a reduced rental rate, because of their reputation and commitment to animals! They have a medical facility run by dedicated professionals, own and run a successful Thrift Shop and are in the process of planning and building a new dog play area (park). Their employees are totally dedicated to the betterment of the animals as are their loyal volunteers. They provide low-cost medical urgent care services to low income pet owners and have a Pet Food Bank for owners who want to keep their pets but are financially struggling. For those wanting to adopt a “friend” for a four legged member of the family, they encourage the “Meet and Greet” concept. I’ve done this several times and heartily recommend this method to bring a new doggie member into the family. Their employees come and …stay! Just another indication of good management practices! Once you’ve entered the doors to AHNM, you become a family member of this well run, happy organization!

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Adopting 5 dogs and utilizing their facilities and aids in training. Donating and shopping their Thrift Shop and their "shopping" facilities for dog food, toys, and other doggie "gear."

Ways to make it better...

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

Try to solicit more contributions from the area in support of this wonderful, service oriented organization.

Although I was a board member of Animal Humane|New Mexico, I had resisted adding an additional pet to our home for years. Once the Cat House opened up at the Virginia Campus, my resistance was won over. The Cat House offers four individual rooms with outdoor patios for the cats to play in and show their real personalities to potential adopters, and also to show how well they get along with other cats. As I already had one cat at home, it was important that the new cat had good social skills. After visiting all four rooms in the Cat House, a beautiful gray cat, who had obviously been "on the lam", won over my heart with his sweet nature. The set up of the Cat House allowed me to visit with a variety of cats at my leisure, and find one that was just right for me. As I was leaving town the next day, Animal Humane|New Mexico made arrangements to take care of "Scout" until I could get him to my house. Dr. Neal went over some concerns I had about introducing Scout to my current cat - time well spent. I am grateful to Animal Humane|New Mexico for being there to take in strays like Scout, who once they are placed in the right home are valued members of the family who are taken care of the way every animal deserves to be taken care of.

In my four years of work with Animal Humane of New Mexico, I have seen a perfect combination of a driven and compassionate team of professionals who have made themselves, their expertise and their facility available for caring for cruelty cases in New Mexico. They have treated, trained and housed animals from all over the state from hoarding cases and animal fighting cases. They have an excellent director who has taken this organization to new levels as soon as she came on board. She has elevated their work with the media, fundraising events and work with other local rescues and advocacy groups. When I worked with local law enforcement to coordinate a raid on a New Mexico property that was posing as a "rescue" and was housing over 93 sick, starving and injured dogs, AHNM was the first to immediately offer to take in as many dogs as they could. Their veterinary staff is top notch and triaged every dog that we brought in. One of those dogs is one of the best success stories we have had from a cruelty case. Lilly came in severely malnourished and likely wouldn't have survived without their immediate care and is now thriving in her foster home. Animal Protection of New Mexico and all others involved with Lilly's case are so grateful for AHNM's quick ability to act and assist in cruelty cases as well as the tremendous work they do every day for the animals that they take in. Thank you AHNM!

I hve been involved with AHNM for many years as a vendor, donor and adoption coordinator with a breed rescue organization. They are in the top 3 of non profits I have been associated with. Their community involvement, from the Doggie Dash and Dawdle, Artists for the Animals, Newsletters, Adopion Clinics and so much more, promotes their mission to the fullest. The entire staff is remarkable and dedicted to the animals. AHNM, is quite frankly, a remakable organization and one that makes our community proud of their accompishments.

AHANM provides opportunities for pet lovers to meet their fur-companions and to develop bonds with other pet lovers in the state. From Tail Dates to their annual Doggie Dash and Dawdle, AHANM continually brings the community together in the shared love of pets. I adopted my Nadia in 2000 and while she has passed away, I am still thankful for an organization like AHANM for bringing Nadia in my life and providing opportunities for her and I to play with other people and their fur-kids. AHANM is a top notch organization and I am proud to contribute each and every year to their cause.

My own pet adoption was a true success in many ways and provided me years of enjoyment and continual happy memories. Second, AHANM uses their contributions wisely, from the cat houses to their new dog park project - they spend with a vision.

I have been on the Board for about a year and a half. In that time I have found the organization to be exceptionally well run by the staff. The Executive Director is very professional and extremely knowledgable about running a shelter, and she clearly cares very deeply about the mission of the organization - to find homes for cats and dogs that are homeless, to provide veterinary care for low-income pet owners and to lead the way in spay/neuter programs. Her professionalism and caring approach have been instilled in the management team and in all the people who work or volunteer at the shelter. As a result of the effectiveness of Animal Humane New Mexico, during my time on the Board it has consistently received donations in excess of the amount budgeted. I am proud to be affiliated with such an outstanding and well run organization.

Animal Humane New Mexico is a most amazing organization with incredible staff, board and volunteers. As with many shelters, AHNM is wholly supported by donations - and they do it all. From the wonderfully cared for dogs and cats (all looking for their forever homes), the low-income clinic, the spay/neuter program, behavior assistance, and pet shop -- Animal Humane is a one-stop shop. Animal Humane is a great community partner. I am proud to be a part of its extended family.

We adopted our first dog from Animal Humane and Nadia was a treasured member of our family. As we became donors and volunteered for events, the heart of the organization shined thru. Peggy Weigle and her team are the best in the business.

All three of our wonderful dogs were adopted through Animal Humane, and I can't say enough good about this fine organization. From building the first clinic in Albuquerque to provide veterinary services to those with limited financial means, to opening an adoption facility in the Northeast Heights that provides easier and more visible access, Animal Humane New Mexico is always looking at the next strategic move it can make to find good homes for many pets as possible, to educate the population about preventing overpopulation, and especially to mitigate pain and suffering of our fellow creatures. I am proud to be a donor and supporter!

As a volunteer I get to work with many of the thousands of people and pets helped by this amazing organization. This past Saturday I helped a woman who came in with her eleven year old daughter to surrender their cat. They were upset because the economy had forced them to move to a place where they couldn't keep pets. While it was a difficult situation I felt good assuring them that we would take good care of their pet and do our best to find her a new home. The week before I handled an an adoption to a couple that had adopted their last dog from us more than 12 years ago. Once again they found a wonderful adult dog to complete their family. Another couple told me that their vet had suggested they come to Animal Humane to look for their next dog because he knew that we were doing a really good job of caring for our dogs and cats. As a board member and board president I know that this organization is run very efficiently and makes excellent and effective use of the private funds we are given by thousands of donors. I am especially proud of the low income veterinary clinic that we opened nearly two years ago. I know that so many more people are able to care for and keep their pets because of this service. It is the only such clinic in our state. I have the privilege of making thank you calls to some of our donors. They usually end up thanking us for what we do.

This is one of the best run non-profits I've worked with. When people donate, they know that their good money is suppored by good management. The board and management view this as a business as well as a service to the community. As a volunteer for a fundraiser, the support staff has been superb and the committee stellar. Their creativity to distinguish themselves from other shelters has made them into one of the best non-profits in the state. Kyla Thompson
