IMPORTANT!

Please note that all animals advertised on our site are mixed breeds. Unless verified by the Office Manager, assume all animals are not purebred.

We are a first come, first serve Shelter. We will not hold an animal for anyone. The only time we hold animals is if someone calls and says they are on their way from out of town to adopt a particular animal. We will not hold an animal on the chance it might be adopted or for more than a couple hours a day.


Not all animals at the shelter are listed on the Petfinder site!
We take in animals daily,
including many owner relinquished pets
which are available for adoption immediately!

DIRECTIONS TO SHELTER:

The Socorro Animal Shelter
is located 1.25 miles south on New Mexico State Rd. 1
(the Frontage Road parallel to I-25), south of town, behind the UPS building and in front of the Municipal Airport.

We are just a 1 hour drive south of Albuquerque,
3 hours from Santa Fe,
and 2 hours from Las Cruces, NM.

It is best to take exit 147: After you take the exit, you need to get into your left lane as soon as possible. There will be a green sign that says airport with an arrow to go left. Take that left so that you pass between a car wash and RV park. Head south about 1.25 miles. We are located right behind the UPS building and in front of the Municipal Airport.

If you take exit 150: Head south all the way down California St., passing all the stop lights in town. You will come up to a fork on the road after you pass the Conoco gas station. Get off of California St. and start heading down State Rd. 1. You need to pass between the car wash and RV park and keep going south for about 1.25 miles. We are located right behind the UPS building and in front of the Municipal Airport.
