Facts about COOPER

Cooper is a happy 4 month old mixed breed pup. He loves his time with other dogs and people too. He is learning loose leash walking and crating training and is super smart.

We are required to list a breed mix for search results but since visual ID is almost impossible to do accurately, we and all other groups with mixed breed adoptables, are giving it our best guess. If we had the option, we would list all our adoptables as DOG/MIXED and help you learn about the specific pup/dog you may be interested in adopting. Every dog is an individual regardless of breed mix.

New Mexico Pets Alive currently completes adoptions via foster to adopt. The process includes an adoption form, home visit and meet and greet and 1 week foster period if our adoption team thinks the match is a great one for our adoptables. The foster period allows everyone to see if the pup/dog/cat may be the right fit for their family before we finalize the adoption. That removes pressure on potential adopters and allows us to be able to facilitate good matches with very few adoption returns. If it's not the right fit, we would prefer to learn that prior to adoption finalization so we can help them find the fur-friend that will be the right fit.

The first step would be for you to complete the NMPA foster to adopt form at located online. Once we receive it, our team will review and get back to you to set up a home visit. It allows us to meet everyone in the family, see where the NMPA adoptables will be living, answer any questions they may have, etc. Thanks for your interest!

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.
