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: Albuqerque, New Mexico
Programs: rescue, rehabilitation, and rehoming of small companion dogs.

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.

On Facebook, I follow LapDog Rescue of NM and am always impressed with their attitudes, their presentation, and their success rate in dog adoptions. They appear to be a very worthy organization…!!

I have several friends who have adopted through LDRNM. The dogs are kept in foster homes and have adjusted to a loving environment. They network with other areas of NM to expand their good work far outside the local Albuquerque area. Everyone I know who has worked with these wonderful people have nothing but good things to say about them. I will be adopting next year and will look no further than this fine organization.

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

Win the lottery and give them all the money so they could help more dogs!

As a former resident of New Mexico and co-founder of a 501C rescue in Texas, I have watched Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico via Facebook since getting involved in Texas. I am in awe of how much they accomplish. They work so hard to network with other rescues, to accept and save dogs from shelters in the state, to find just the right owners for their precious charges. As hard as this often-sad work is, they always seem to do it with cheerful hope of saving more dogs. This is one of the most positive rescues I have seen; they save so many lives and make so many people happy. If I were still there, I would be working with them. It's heart-warming to see all that they do.
