Reviews for Animal Humane New Mexico

Rating: 5 stars  

I adopted my second dog from here. We came in to visit & were asked if we minded sharing a review of our experience with AH. Happy to. We come here for family time even when we are not looking for a dog, just to show our kids how they can help others in need. It's a great place to visit, to adopt, and talk to the great staff and volunteers. They've come a long way in making the shelter awesome.

We volunteer for a non-profit, New Mexico Animal Friends, that works in collaboration with Animal Humane and The City of Albuquerque to spay & neuter feral cats for the trap, neuter return program. Animal Humane has led the way for this program to grow by securing funding and providing surgeries for this program. They have been receptive to our needs for daily surgeries and provided our organization, without charge, the space to hold it's own monthly clinic. Animal Humane is truly a leader in both the Trap, Neuter & Return program and the spay & neuter of owned cats to help humanely reduce the over-population of cats in New Mexico.

Thanks to Animal Humane we have two of our three forever pets. Rio, our red heeler, was adopted from Animal Humane in 2003. Fiona, a/k/a Baby Cakes, was adopted in 2010. Fiona was taken to Animal Humane in March, 2010 after suffering a terrible accident in her home which burned her paws, belly, and fur. Animal Humane was able to treat her injuries and care for her until she was ready to be adopted into her forever home. My family was lucky enough to be that home, and Fiona touches our lives every day with her beautiful, loving spirit. This happy ending, and many others, are made possible by Animal Humane and its supporters.

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

The wonderful things they do for homeless pets.

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