Our Mission

ACTion Programs for Animals is located in Las Cruces, NM.  We run our area's pet food bank, and we also help find homes or safe rescue/sanctuary placements for our Second Chance Dogs -- dogs from former abuse cases.  In 2012, we launched our Dona Ana Pets Alive! campaign, and we are rescuing at risk dogs and cats from the municipal shelter.  They spend time at a foster home, and then they are put up for adoption.

Adoption Policy

To adopt one of our animals, contact us at 575-644-0505 or via e-mail at  We will go over our adoption application with you on the phone or via e-mail.  If the adoption looks like a good match, we'll arange for you to meet the dog you are interested in adopting or invite you to meet the animal at one of our offsite adoption events.  You can also fill our foster/adoption application online at under our Adopt/Foster page.  Our adoption fees may vary, but in most cases they are $50 for cats and $75 for dogs and include vaccinations, spay/neuter and microchipping.
