Animal Humane New Mexico
July 31, 2010
Although I was a board member of Animal Humane|New Mexico, I had resisted adding an additional pet to our home for years. Once the Cat House opened up at the Virginia Campus, my resistance was won over. The Cat House offers four individual rooms with outdoor patios for the cats to play in and show their real personalities to potential adopters, and also to show how well they get along with other cats. As I already had one cat at home, it was important that the new cat had good social skills. After visiting all four rooms in the Cat House, a beautiful gray cat, who had obviously been "on the lam", won over my heart with his sweet nature. The set up of the Cat House allowed me to visit with a variety of cats at my leisure, and find one that was just right for me. As I was leaving town the next day, Animal Humane|New Mexico made arrangements to take care of "Scout" until I could get him to my house. Dr. Neal went over some concerns I had about introducing Scout to my current cat - time well spent. I am grateful to Animal Humane|New Mexico for being there to take in strays like Scout, who once they are placed in the right home are valued members of the family who are taken care of the way every animal deserves to be taken care of.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
the way they operate, the care they give to the animals, and their continuing drive to improve the organization to benefit the animals.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
their dedication to improving the lives of animals and the variety of ways they do it.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
caring, informative and dedicated.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
do amazing things for pet overpopulation and the care of pets waiting to be adopted. Dr. Neal's low income vet services could be offered to so many more animals in need.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
