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.

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.

Direct beneficiaries per year:

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

Rating: 5 stars  

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 !

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!

Lapdogrescue is an incredible organization of dedicated people. I have just recently adopted my second pup from them. These people truly care about the dogs they place in homes. The personal time and love they show in their humanitarian efforts are so apparent. What a great group of people doing great work. Cheers to all of them.

I've volunteered for many canine organizations over the last twenty years. As a foster care provider for Lap Dog for the last year, I can attest that this group of people is remarkable. Every single person is dedicated to the well-being of the dogs and finding them the families they deserve. I enjoy the positive atmosphere, too - no drama! Brian does a good job letting people play to their strengths, all in the name of taking care of the dogs who need help.

My family and I adopted one of our boys from Lap Dog Rescue and I could not have been more impressed with this organization. They have a true passion for what they are doing and the volunteers are amazing.

Lap Dog is the best! They care so much for the pups and matching the right dog to the right people. They work their butts off doing what is right and best for everyone. Do yourself a favor, get involved with them. You won't be sorry!!

They have helped so many animals from all over New Mexico. They have taken dogs that I have found that need help and they do everything in their power to find every dog the right home. They are a far superior rescue!

Lapdog is great! I run Cindy's hope for precious paws animal rescue in clovis. Lapdog takes in many of the homeless, neglected and abandoned animals to help them. Lapdog even takes in some of the difficult cases where the animals have been abused or have not had much human touch and will work with them until they are fully ready adopted into a forever family. Lapdog is wonderful to work with. Their policies are great when it comes to finding only the best of homes for their animals. I love being a part of the great volunteers and the work lapdog does for the animals. Thank you lap dog for all that you do. Your awesome

My 2 rescues are from LDRNM...the fosters vet all the rescues with much love and attention. The intense caring that is showered on all the rescue pooches is wonderful. These furkids go to their forever homes, playful, loving and loyal. It is an honor to volunteer with LDRNM. This nonprofit organization rescues humans as well as pooches.

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.

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.
