My relationship with Animal Humane New Mexico extends back to mid-nineties, when we adopted two dogs and became donors. I have served on the board for the past five years, and as board president in 2011. There was a negative review written on this site a few months ago, and I write partially in response to that, but also feel compelled to write simply out of support for the organization. The factual errors in the negative review were addressed by our Executive Director, Peggy Weigle, and I further extend her offer to visit the facility at any time to learn more about the operation. As a board member, with an ethical and fiscal duty to the companion animals, the organization itself, and the communities we serve, I am very proud of our practices and our transparency. I can say with great confidence that the public face of Animal Humane is in complete alignment with its mission and its day-to-day operations. I believe a very real testament to this consistency is continued and increasing donor and volunteer support. Our volunteer numbers have grown to something in the neighborhood of 400 people with more than 50 new applicants being reviewed each month. Another indicator of the soundness and humaneness of the organization is this very large number of dog and cat lovers who routinely observe and participate in the day to day activity of the organization.
