Having spent many years volunteering in various animal welfare capacities, I can say with confidence that Animal Humane New Mexico is a standout private non-profit shelter. This is not easy work by any means. It is emotionally fraught, and tough decisions always have to be made. But I know of no other organization in the state whose staff and volunteers are as knowledgeable and dedicated to animal welfare as those who work at Animal Humane New Mexico. The organization has no doubt blossomed under Peggy Weigle's executive directorship. Thanks to her leadership, a progressive board, and the excellence of her staff, the organization has attracted a cadre of volunteers who help with animal exercise and socialization, implemented a cutting edge behavioral department, and regularly sponsors innovative and fun off-site adoption events that successfully rally the community. It's also the only shelter I know of that utilizes Meet Your Match in the adoption process and offers post adoption puppy and adult training classes. All in all, a model shelter and a model adoption program.
