Dog Walking

During an afternoon shift (2-5 pm), our Volunteer dog walkers provide an exercise, smelling and hearing enrichment activity for Shelter dogs as they walk them on our trails or play with them in the yard. Dog walkers are a crucial part of keeping these canines happy and healthy during their stay with SFAS.

Mission Statement

Since 1939, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter has been dedicated to its mission: support animals, save lives, spread compassion.


We are northern New Mexico’s only open-admission, no-kill shelter. Our Live Release Rate is currently at 94.2 percent.

As a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, we receive nearly all of our funding from private donors in our community and beyond. Santa Fe Animal Shelter focuses on spay/neuter programs to control overpopulation, creative adoption efforts to bring pets to loving families and dozens of programs providing support for marginalized animals.


We'll work with your schedule.
