Animal Humane New Mexico
January 28, 2012

My experience with Animal Humane New Mexico (AHNM) spans back five years. During that time, it is impressive to review the positive evolution of this organization. Lead by a dynamic Executive Director, it seems as no task is too monumental. What strikes me the most is the multi-faceted approach that AHNM takes to accomplish their lofty goals; innovative tactics to achieve record-breaking adoptions, low cost spay/neuter programs, microchipping and vaccinating pre-owned pets, foster care for special needs animals, responsible pet parenting classes for students, cat adoptions via local businesses, humane dog training and agility classes, state conferences that address all aspects shelter operations and large-scale public events like Doggie Dash & Dawdle. The list goes on. These remarkable accomplishments are made possible by the dedicated management, staff and amazingly tireless volunteers. And just who benefits from these endeavors? All of us, but especially those animals in the shelter still looking for their forever home.

Being a local pet supply business owner, we started as a partner with AHNM on a variety of events and occasionally via monetary contributions. Over time, we observed the tremendous value AHNM brings to the New Mexico community and thus augmented our support to the point of becoming a sponsor for their outdoor training area/agility field. As part of this collaboration, we offer free scholarships to select new pet parents who wish to enroll in a free six-week positive training class at AHNM. For the AHNM shelter dogs, some on our favorite activities include the daily enrichment programs. These programs should be a model for the rest of our shelter operations here in New Mexico.

Recently, I began serving as a board member with Animal Humane New Mexico. I am excited to participate in one of our state’s leading shelters, both in standards and by the numbers. It is an honor to be involved with an organization that gets things done by knowing how to walk the walk.
