We are New Mexico's leading private animal welfare agency serving cats, dogs and their families. From our main campus in Albuquerque, we partner with shelters across the state to rescue homeless pets. Since January 2010, we have successfully re-homed 100% of the healthy pets in our care! We support every cat and dog at Animal Humane with outstanding veterinary, social and emotional care and, most importantly, LOVE until they are adopted by their new forever families.
It is our mission to support and improve the lives of New Mexico's cats and dogs through sheltering, adoptions, humane education and veterinary services. We envision a society in which every animal is treated with respect and compassion.
With state-of-the-art facilities on our beautiful four-acre Main Campus, and a new adoption center on Albuquerque's Westside, we deliver innovative programs that comprise our wide variety of compassionate services, making Animal Humane a national leader in animal welfare.
It's really people that make Animal Humane an amazing shelter that saves and impacts thousands of lives each year. We hire people who are empathetically compassionate and share the common goal of improving the lives of New Mexico's cats and dogs. Although we share common goals, visions and values for our work, we come from all walks of life. We are a diverse, highly-motivated team. When not at work, we pursue interests ranging from competitive sports, to music, from hiking and backpacking to dance.
We work diligently to maintain an open culture where egos are checked at the door and collaboration and positivity run wild. Everyone is a hands-on contributor and is comfortable sharing ideas with departments organization-wide. We are gracious not only to each other, but to the many, many donors and volunteers that make our mission a reality each day. Honesty, transparency, and the desire to do what's right drive our decisions.
