Mission: The mission of Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico is to rescue, rehabilitate and place for adoption small companion dogs. Our goal is to place these dogs in loving, forever homes and to do this through a rigorous screening and adoption process. We operate strictly through volunteerism, counting on the generosity of others and of ourselves to further our mission.
Results: As a network of caring foster homes where our dogs are temporarily homed and socialized, and not kenneled, we screen applicants so that our dogs will be accepted by the adopting family. We collaborate with other state-wide rescues to save New Mexico dogs that come from many sources: animal shelters, owner surrenders, and actual abusive situations. In 2015 we rescued 440 dogs. Since 2001, we have saved thousands of New Mexico shelter dogs.

Not only have I adopted via Lap Dog, I work at the clinic where they bring they bring the lucky little devils for all the necessary veterinary care. They will rescue dogs that will be put down due to medical reasons and then go the extra , extra mile to get the dog well enough to place. The volunteers are the most dedicated group of Angels you hope hope to meet. The hours and hours and hours they spend are amazing. I cannot think of any organization more deserving than Lap Dog.
