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.

I am a proud adopter of my dog, Faith, who just turned a happy and healthy year old! I found adopting through them to be such a wonderful experience and have plans on doing it again. As a donor, I know that my money is going to a very reputable organization that is never frivolous in its spending. Plus the work they do with the dogs in nothing short of amazing! Lap Dog restores your faith in humanity in the way they help all dogs. Keep the faith Lap Dog you're doing a great job!

We adopted our two great dogs from Lap Dog Rescue. The process they use to screen potential furever homes is comprehensive. From the application to the home visit, they ensure that it is a great match. The fosters love and care for your dog and are able to give valuable information about their foster pups. Our foster doubles as a groomer and boarder. When we left on vacation, we boarded our first dog there. She sent us pics of our dog and his new best friend. When we got home, we had two dogs. All the volunteers I've encountered from LDRNM are dedicated and caring. I have recommended them to several friends that are equally as enthusiastic about LDRNM. They partner with shelters around the state to save as many dogs as possible.
