Pets at Our Shelter:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We serve Grant County, New Mexico and the southwestern United States. We are more than willing to help arrange for transportation of adopted animals outside the Grant County area. Our goal is to help people place and adopt unwanted pets.

About Our Shelter:

Our goal is two fold. We provide loving care for the 50+ animals living at the sanctuary and we also do community outreach to try to educate people aboput responsible pet guardianship. We are a 501 c 3 federal non-profit and althoughw e are small, we do everything we can to help animals.
We have an assortment of animals - 28 cats, 5 dogs, 6 goats, 1 sheep, 4 rabbits, 5 pigs, 1 chinchilla, 1 guinea pig and 1 gecko. The rabbits, goats, sheep and pigs live outside and have a nice, warm barn to sleep in. The dogs, cats, guinea pig, chinchilla and gecko live in the house with access to outside as is appropriate for their species. We provide a home environment and live at the sanctuary with the animals. Each animal is provided with the best food available. We feed organic, natural foods when available for the species. Each animal gets medical attention as needed and lots and lots of love.

Come Meet our Pets:

Currently, we have two pot belly pigs who would make wonderful additions to the right home. Dexter was raised in the house and was exposed to children and other animals. He is very sweet and good natured. He needs love, good pig food, a warm place to sleep, access to a kiddy pool in the summer and a place to call home.
Piggy is a little older than Dexter. He is un-neutered so would be unsuitable for anyone with an un-spayed female pig. He has a good disposition and was also raised in the house. In fact, he apparently loves to sleep in front of the fireplace.
If you are interested in adopting either one or both of these boys and have experience with pot belly pigs, please contact us!

Our Adoption Process:

Because our local shelter has only a 7-11% adoption rate, we always refer people who want dogs or cats to them. We are a no-kill animal sanctuary. As such, we are prepared to keep all the rescued animals we bring in for their entire lives. Presently, we can't take any more animals but we do help people place pets they can no longer keep.

Why should you adopt?

farm-type animals can make wonderful pets, and rather than buying a farm-type animal for sale or finding a farm-type animal breeder, adopting a farm-type animal from an animal shelter or rescue organization is the perfect way to add a farm-type animal to your family. Keep in mind, there is a lot you will need to know when you provide a home for a farm-type animal. You will need to learn what to feed them, how much exercise or attention your farm-type animal needs, and many other important things about how to house and care for a farm-type animal. There are different types of farm-type animals including Alpaca, Cow or Bull, Goat, Llama, Pig (Farm), Pig (Potbellied), and Sheep.
