Review for Animal Humane New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been a volunteer at AHNM since 2002, and have seen the organization evolve into one of the highest quality shelters I have known. Due to the dedication of the leadership, staff (76) and volunteers (410), in 2010 we reached our goal of adopting 100% of the healty pets (4,812) in our care! AHNM has implemented a number of programs to support its mission of improving the lives of companion animals through sheltering, adopton, community education, providing quality low-cost veterinary services to families in need, and programs that reduce pet overpopulation. All of the programs are too numerous to list here, but you can see them at the Web site: AHNM does not receive any government funding. It is supported by fees for services and donations. But even with these limited resouces, AHNM continues to strive and innovate to reach their goals, and the results are impressive. It is an incredible organization and I wholeheartedly support them and their mission!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

As a volunteer over eight years, i have seen the quality and commitment of the organization in carrying out its mission.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would like to see Animal Humane receive more public acknowledgement for all the services they provide to the community (low cost veterinary services, free behavior helpline, foster care program, etc.) I would also like to see them develop more products that can be sold to generate more income for the oganization (e.g., shirts, caps, note cards, greeting cards, etc.)

Role:  Volunteer & I have supported AHNM both as a long-term volunteer and by adopting some of my pets from the shelter.
