About New Mexico Pets Alive!

About Our Rescue Group...

New Mexico Pets Alive! (NMPA!) is a registered 501-c-3 non-profit organization in the State of NM. Our mission is to help reduce the influx of lost and homeless pets arriving in New Mexico shelters while simultaneously helping to increase the health and live release rates of those companion animals ending up in our animal control and shelter systems. We wish our state of New Mexico to achieve the companion animal welfare success of many communities across America, now saving 90% - 99% of their lost and homeless pets.

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. 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.
