Dog adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog and you'll have a friend for life! Contact us, or contact another local humane society, animal shelter or SPCA.
NMPA! seeks out the most successful companion animal life-saving programming being implemented across the United States and we then promote and work to deliver that programming here within our state of New Mexico for the benefit of our people and our pets.
Inspired by the past 15+ years of success of our neighboring states achieving No-Kill communities (saving all healthy and treatable companion animals entering animal control and private and municipal shelters - 90% to 98% of intake), we are embarking upon one the largest companion animal life-saving efforts in New Mexico's history. With the help of some of the most successful veterinarians, trainers, rescue group and shelter leaders across North America, we are developing and delivering informational and programmatic resources to help New Mexico achieve this same level of success.
We need your help to deliver this information and programming in New Mexico for the benefit of New Mexico's companion animals, pet guardians and our communities as a whole. NMPA! is currently an all volunteer run effort and we need your help to make the largest positive impact. You can volunteer, foster a pet, donate or become one of our future staff members to help us achieve success as quickly as possible.
Today, we are fortunate to now have more than 500 cities and towns, all economically, socially and culturally diverse, across the United States who have achieved No-Kill success, with many more communities on the verge of doing the same. There is nothing easy about what we are embarking upon but inspired by the work of the No-Kill communities across the US, we are extremely grateful to be able to help duplicate the success of others rather than re-invent the wheel. Join us in helping to bring about needed positive changes for our people and our pets in New Mexico.
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.
