Our Mission

NMDOG is an all volunteer, foster based, 501(c)3 non profit dog rescue established in 2010 & based out of Abq NM. We serve the chained, abused & Forgotten Dogs across the state of New Mexico. We work in partnership with Law Enforcement departments, Animal Control departments & shelters in NM by assisting them with their most severe cases of cruelty & abuse. We take the dogs off of their chains & into our program, providing them with the medical care & emotional rehabilitation they need. We get them ready for adoption & find them the very best forever part of a loving family. Our Mission is to serve & protect NMs Forgotten Dogs. #ForTheLoVeOfDog

Adoption Policy

NMDOG doesn't cut any corners when it comes to the care & placement of our dogs. When a dog enters the NMDOG program, they are guaranteed to receive the very best of care. All of our available dogs have received a full medical & behavioral clearance prior to placement. They are (at the very minimum) spayed or neutered, UTD on age appropriate vaccinations, microchipped, dewormed, Heartworm tested & currently on HW/flea & tick preventative. Due to the nature of our work, many of the dogs we rescue need much more extensive care before they are cleared for adoption. At NMDOG, we stand by our dogs for life & we make a promise to always be there for them (& their people) should they ever need us. "Once an NMDOG, always an NMDOG" and when you foster or adopt, you become part of the NMDOG family.

If you see a dog you are interested in that says "in need of a foster home", we are currently seeking a temporary foster home for that dog in order to provide them with the cozy & loving experience of a home environment while we work hard to find their forever family. This also frees up space & funds, which enables us to save another life. There is never a cost to foster for NMDOG & you will have the dedicated support of the NMDOG TEAM every step of the way. We take the time to really get to know the needs & personalities of our kids & we go the extra mile to ensure we make the best possible match...setting our dogs & their humans up for success!

All adopted dogs also receive free or discounted goodies & services from many of our awesome community partners!! Grooming, food, training, boarding, pet sitting & more.
