If you see a pet you are interested in, be sure to read all details about that pet on the pet’s profile page. This will include basic information about the pet & which of our locations the pet can be viewed at.
You must meet with a pet & an adoption advisor prior to adoption or placing holds. No holds will be placed over the phone.
Adoptions are completed on a first come, first served basis. Please note there may be a wait to meet with a pet, dependent on advisor availability.
Please allow plenty of time to meet your perfect pet. Once you have selected a pet, the adoption process will take at least 30 minutes. We do not begin the adoption process after 5:30 pm.
Animal Humane New Mexico performs a background check on all adopters & does not adopt to anyone who has committed a violent crime. We reserve the right to refuse an adoption for any reason.
Please note, unvaccinated visitors must wear their mask indoors at all Animal Humane locations.
