Our Mission

The mission of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter is to support animals, save lives and spread compassion.


The Santa Fe Animal Shelter is the largest animal shelter and care facility in northern New Mexico. We serve more than 10,000 lost, stray, abandoned or injured animals each year. As a private, not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization, we receive nearly all of our funding through private donors in our community and beyond. The Shelter contracts with the city and county of Santa Fe to care for homeless and stray animals, as well as those brought through our front doors


We work to reunite people with their lost animal companions, and re-home those animals that have gone unclaimed into new homes through our adoption program. Low- and no-cost spay/neuter programs address the overpopulati

Adoption Policy

If you have made the careful decision to bring a companion animal into your life, chances are that the Santa Fe Animal Shelter has a dog, cat, kitten, puppy, ferret, rabbit, or other animal companion who will match your home and lifestyle.


Matchmaking is an important part of our adoption process and we pride ourselves on helping hopeful animal lovers find a companion
