Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a rescue, not an open admission animal shelter. Our animals have been pulled from death row at municipal shelters Albuquerque and McKinley County, New Mexico, therefore our adoption policy is strict.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a New Mexico registered non profit corporation. We are a NOT FOR profit rescue for pit bull type dogs and other targeted and misunderstood breeds, especially deaf bully breeds. We are a network of foster homes, building the foundations for a sanctuary/halfway house in Northern New Mexico. Our current focus is fighting breed discriminatory legislation & widening our network of foster homes to keep bully breed dogs out of kill shelters.

Come Meet our Pets:

We currently operate entirely out of private foster homes. Call or email us to arrange a meeting with any of our dogs.

Our Adoption Process:

We require home checks, background checks, a 2 week trial adoption or foster to adopt and our fee is $225. This includes 6 weeks of dog training. We will require approval in writing from your landlord, and confirmation that your homeowner's policy does not have breed restrictions. We believe animals are family members and must not be kept outdoors or tied up. When you adopt a new family member, it is a commitment for life. Pets are not disposable.

Our Adopted Pets:

We have helped lots of pets connect with loving and caring owners. Check out our adopted pets list!

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
