Mission Statement

Our mission is to promote and provide the information and the gap filling programs needed to help more at-risk impounded dogs and cats in New Mexico and beyond. Our efforts aim to one day eliminate the destruction of healthy and treatable dogs and cats occurring in stray animal intake facilities every year.


We work to fill gaps in current animal welfare programming to reduce the number of lost and homeless pets arriving in animal shelters in the first place while simultaneously rescuing healthy and treatable dogs and cats in danger of being put down in animal intake facilities and then helping to increase their health (physical, behavioral and emotional) and successful adoption matches with loving families.

Through pet guardian/owner support services, we work to help reduce the number of dogs and cats entering the New Mexico shelter system in the first place. Through at-risk shelter pet rescue, foster and adoption placement programs we help increase the number of healthy and treatable dogs and cats making it out of animal facilities alive and onto happy homes. Through post-adoption follow up services, we help prevent dogs and cats from re-entering the NM shelter system.

Utilizing the most successful and leading edge medical, training and behavioral health animal care models, our community service organization works daily to fill gaps in the current animal welfare system. Our programs now assist over 750 people, pets, organizations, depts and agencies each year. We do not duplicate services. In 100% of our rescue cases, we were the only organization who stepped up to help that puppy. kitten, cat or dog. Without us, they had no other care or lifesaving options. While we are proud of those efforts, we are merely scratching the surface of what’s possible!
