Mission: The mission of Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico is to rescue, rehabilitate and place for adoption small companion dogs.

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.

It has been my pleasure to be a volunteer and President of this wonderful organization for the past 20 years. I cannot say enough about the level of commitment of our volunteers and fosters have shown in the rescuing and adopting of homeless dogs. I can only hope we can continue for another 20 years!

I've worked with a lot of organizations and I have to admit Lap Dog Rescue of NM is the finest. This organization always works within its values. LDRNM works hard to do the right thing - always. We are frugal with our money but lavish love on our dogs. Thank you, Lap Dog Rescue, for giving me the opportunity to work with you in saving dogs' lives.

Find more volunteers and would engage a volunteer to devote to foster coordinating.
