My story

2020 was not an awesome year for me. I found myself at the shelter, then I got adopted. Then, I got returned because I was too active.

Sorry I needed more than sitting in a backyard day in and day out. That’s no kind of life.

Getting returned to the shelter was actually lucky for me, because that lead to me being chosen for the PAWS program!

I went and learned all about being a good girl, and made lots of friends. I love other dogs and humans, and I would really like a family to love.

Are you looking for an adventure buddy? I’m about 3, so I have lots of years to have fun with you. I’m obedience and house trained, plus I have a beautiful smile!

What do you say? Could we be a perfect match? I promise to love you forever!

Fill out an adoption application here: My adoption fee is $250 which goes toward all my vet care I received and the training I got in the PAWS program.

Tell them you want to meet Bambi! I’m waiting in boarding for someone to love. Any donations to help with that would be greatly appreciated!

Their adoption process

Additional adoption info

All animals are sterilized, vaccinated and microchipped prior to adoption. We require an initial adoption application, once accepted pets may be adopted with an approved home check and signed adoption contract. Our adoption fee is generally $200.00, but this may vary in special cases. We do not do out of state adoptions.

More about this rescue

Viva NM Rural Animal Rescue is a group of volunteers dedicated to saving homeless and abandoned pets in rural high volume shelters. We hope to not only decrease the number of dogs and cats that are euthanized through rescue and adoption but also educate the population overall about the importance of spay and neuter programs. We do not have a facility, our rescue is strictly foster-home based.

We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
