My wife and I started giving to Animal Humane New Mexico in 2016 after visiting the shelter. We were blown away by the growth of their footprint and the serenity & joy of meeting the cats and dogs. The cats have their own luxury quarters - so private and serene from all the dog activity. You will definitely not walk away feeling sad or stressed in finding your perfect new animal.

I am a dog owner as I have four dogs(3 Cocker Spaniels & 1 Basset mix) and I consider them to be my four legged children. I have used Animal Humanes health Clinic to get one of my Cockers fixed as well as operated on for a hernia on her stomach. Not only did I get exceptional service but the dedication of the medical staff on taking care of my Baby Girl made me believe in Animal Humane. I recently donated a SUV to Animal Humane for their Fund raising. I wish I could donate working there at Animal Humane but my health does not allow me to do this. The facility at Animal Humane is for the well being of the animals which are cared for there. People who are looking for a new adoption can be assured the animals are very well taken care of and will be ready to be adopted. THIS ANIMAL RESCUE IS A NO KILL FACILITY AND I WISH PEOPLE WHO GIVE UP THEIR ANIMALS WOULD TAKE THEM TO ANIMAL HUMANE(pay the fee) SO THEIR DOGS OR CATS WOULD HAVE THE BEST CHANCE TO BE ADOPTED. THATS THE LEAST YOU CAN DO FOR THE ANIMAL YOU ARE JUST ACTUALLY DUMPING BECAUSE CAN YOU IMAGINE HOW SCARED THEY ARE WHEN YOU LEAVE THEM. IF YOU HAVE ANY FEELINGS YOU NEED TO DO WHATS BEST FOR THEM AS THEY ARE YOUR RESPONSIBILITY. ANIMAL HUMANE IS A GODS SEND AS THEY ARE DEDICATED ORGANIZATION TO SEE UNWANTED ANIMALS ARE TAKEN CARE OF IN WAYS. PLEASE DONATE TO THIS FACILITY BECAUSE THEY REALLY DO AN EXCEPTIONAL JOB IN THE CARE OF THE ANIMALS THEY ARE TRUSTED WITH. I BELIEVE IN THEM 100%!
THANK YOU JOE CARRASCO

I am a small business owner of a re-sale shop in Alb., and I use to shop at the Animal Humane Thrift store on Menaul.
I would get such a good deal on everything there.
I then would donate 5% of my monthly profits to the Animal Humane Center.

The store recently changed its policies. The prices on their furniture are now double what they should be,
the clothes are three times the price. They are now just another over priced junk store.

I was told they have a new manager, and she has decided to make more profit.

Unfortunately I can no longer shop there,and my donations are few.

I was anticipating just to meet Donna Stumpf but instead was given the royal tour of the entire facility and wow, and what a facility the AHANM is! The facility supports animals lives in ways that I did not even imagine a facility could. For example, the facilty has a walking area that trains dogs to be obedient so that their chances of adoption are improved. On the day of my tour, this area was staffed with volunteers! Additionally, I was duly impressed with the cathouse where felines could climb onto different stairs and look out of windows, while staring at trees that contain birds! The AHANM has too many beautiful components to list, many of which are staffed by volunteers. The AHANM facility in Abq. is truly a wonderful place for its clients, the animals that have been placed in its care.

I am so happy to have the opportunity to tell you what a wonderful organization Animal Humane New Mexico is. I have been a supporter of the organization for many years and all my four legged friends have been residents there prior to living with me. So, I feel qualified to say that this organization excels in all areas. They are beloved in the community for their commitment to small animals having the support of the local news media, many business establishments and countless friends like me. They use their funds efficiently, having recently completed a new “Cat House,” opening a new, hugely successful, satellite location in another part of town and more recently another satellite in still another location! AHNM was actually approached by the owner of one of these locations and asked to become a resident, at a reduced rental rate, because of their reputation and commitment to animals! They have a medical facility run by dedicated professionals, own and run a successful Thrift Shop and are in the process of planning and building a new dog play area (park). Their employees are totally dedicated to the betterment of the animals as are their loyal volunteers. They provide low-cost medical urgent care services to low income pet owners and have a Pet Food Bank for owners who want to keep their pets but are financially struggling. For those wanting to adopt a “friend” for a four legged member of the family, they encourage the “Meet and Greet” concept. I’ve done this several times and heartily recommend this method to bring a new doggie member into the family. Their employees come and …stay! Just another indication of good management practices! Once you’ve entered the doors to AHNM, you become a family member of this well run, happy organization!

AHANM provides opportunities for pet lovers to meet their fur-companions and to develop bonds with other pet lovers in the state. From Tail Dates to their annual Doggie Dash and Dawdle, AHANM continually brings the community together in the shared love of pets. I adopted my Nadia in 2000 and while she has passed away, I am still thankful for an organization like AHANM for bringing Nadia in my life and providing opportunities for her and I to play with other people and their fur-kids. AHANM is a top notch organization and I am proud to contribute each and every year to their cause.

My wife and I started off as donors to Animal Humane NM. Our relationship evolved when we found a dog at our city shelter that was very quiet and timid. Around Christmas time that dog, a terrier cross, developed kennel cough. He was not responding to treatment at the shelter and we became concerned that he might be euthanized there. We arranged to have him transferred to Animal Humane. He was immediately given treatment for the kennel cough and began to respond. For the next three months I went to Animal Humane on a daily basis to walk Quincy and give him additional attention. During that period I observed the staff and volunteers. They all were very professional. I saw the satisfaction they felt when a dog or cat found his/her forever home. They seemed to know the names of most of the residents which is no simple feat. In the meantime Quincy was found to be food aggressive. He went through their behavior modification training and was eventually adopted into a loving home with other animals. Animal Humane is the only organization that I am aware of in New Mexico that has a low cost veterinary clinic for low income individuals. This allows those people to keep their beloved companion animals even when they require medical care. Their new cattery is the finest one that I have ever seen. The cats residing in that new facility have access to an enclosed outdoor facility where they can climb and watch birds in the adjacent trees. Animal Humane’s tireless efforts have significantly improved the lives of the homeless animals that find themselves staying on their campus.

I have been supporting AHNM's spay/neuter efforts since 2003. Since then, the program has grown from doing a few hundred surgeries per year to sterilizing thousands of pets of low income families, hundreds of cats and dogs in rescue and hundreds of feral cats each year. Animal Humane's management is committed to helping to end cat and dog over-population in New Mexico. Their Clinic is a state-of-the art facility staffed by dedicated professionals and volunteers. Last year they performed 10,000 surgical procedures. AHNM also allows another local non-profit to use their Clinic one or two Sundays per month for high volume feral cat spay/neuter clinics. As a donor, I am impressed with the fact that every Animal Humane client is treated with respect and compassion. I also know that every dollar I donate goes to help end the needless killing of healthy pets in New Mexico. I really hope that all animal lovers will choose to support Animal Humane's programs.

Each time I visit the main campus of Animal Humane New Mexico, I am thrilled to see the continued improvements. With the comfort of the dog and cat residents, as well as the public in mind, they have created a warm and welcoming environment. The staff is friendly and helpful and eager to assist people in finding a forever friend. I am so pleased with their committment to help reduce the number of unwanted animals through robust spay/neuter programs and provide veterinary care for the pets of people who are low-income.
