My story

Here's what the humans have to say about me:

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

How to Adopt

Austin is a 6 year old husky. He is black and white, with a soft, fluffy coat. He has blue eyes. Austin is super loving and affectionate with his humans. He is house trained and leash trained. He has a high prey drive so he needs to be watched when small animals are around. He would not do well in a  home with small animals, birds or cats. He also needs a good 6 foot fence.

Their adoption process


Submit Application

The online adoption application should be filled it out completely and in as much detail as possible.



Interviews usually take 30-45 minutes to complete and usually take place over the phone.


Meet the Pet

We do not have a shelter, so meetings between adopters and dogs take place at the adopter's home or at a neutral location, such as a park.


Home Check

We will make arrangements with you for a visit to your home prior to or on the day of the adoption.


Approve Application

A positive reference from the applicant's current or most recent veterinary clinic is required before any adoption application is approved.


Sign Adoption Contract

All of our adoptions are done under contract and on a trial basis. The trial period ends when all parties are satisfied with the adoption.


Pay Fee

Adoption fees enable our non-profit organization to care for the dogs we rescue and allow us to continue in our mission to save huskies!

Additional adoption info

We require a securely and fully fenced yard for all of our dogs and most of them need fencing that is at least five feet high at all points, including gates.

More about this rescue

Siberian Husky Rescue of New Mexico is an all volunteer, 501 (c)(3) rescue organization devoted to rescuing, rehabilitating, and finding new, permanent, loving homes for Siberian Huskies, and often, husky mixes that have ended up neglected, abused, or unwanted.

The organization began in late 1998 when a red Siberian Husky that was not expected to live much longer due to her injuries was saved from a local shelter by the organization’s founder. Over time, as Cinnamon recovered from her injuries, she not only survived but thrived, proving to be a Christmas miracle! Thus was born our motto “Saving Siberians, one life at a time.” From those humble beginnings, many more huskies found their way to the organization, where people across NM volunteered their time, opened their homes, and donated funds to support this cause-for the love of the Siberian Husky.

We are a small rescue, and our dogs reside at either our homes or foster homes until we make a match with an adopting person or family. All of our dogs are spayed or neutered to prevent additional unwanted litters and are given proper veterinary attention and microchipped. The dogs are usually socialized with other dogs so we can determine how they will react around other dogs and humans. Ensuring good nutrition is also part of the dog’s physical healing.

Since Siberians, and most dogs in general, are pack animals, we tend to place most of our dogs with another companion dog or with people who have more time at home. We try to avoid situations where the dog is left alone in the backyard for long periods of time while owners work. Also, as a general rule, Siberians don’t do well in small yards or apartments, as they tend to be active, working dogs with a long history of pulling sleds or “working for a living.” There are always exceptions as each dog is unique. Over time, we have seen almost all of our dogs go to some really great homes! Our mission is truly…"Saving Siberians, One Life at a Time.”
