The Heart & Soul Animal Sanctuary (Santa Fe, New Mexico 87501) serves a region of desperate need. Northern New Mexico has a long history of neglect, ill-treatment and heedless overpopulation of animals. Many of the dogs and cats who come to us have been dumped in trash cans, dropped into roadside ditches or left at gas stations to fend for themselves.


We welcome visitors to the Sanctuary. We’re located in Glorieta, NM, a 20-minute drive from Santa Fe. Please call for an appointment; afternoons between noon and 5 pm are preferable.

The mission of New Mexico Animal Friends (Albuquerque, New Mexico 87196) is to:

  • Rescue homeless dogs and cats and provide temporary quality care for them in foster homes until permament adoptive homes can be found
  • Promote animal welfare through educational efforts and other services
  • Reduce overpopulation in companion animals and feral cats through spay-neuter services



NMAF does not euthanize healthy animals except in cases of severe and untreatable medical or behavioral problems. Once a dog or cat is in NMAF’s system, they do as much as possible to ensure that it finds a loving home and that its medical and behavioral needs are met.

PACA / AAR (Albuquerque, NM 87154) is the oldest no-kill animal rescue group in New Mexico. Our main focus is abandoned, abused cats and dogs. We provide all needed medical care, spay/neuter, as well as any major surgery required. We also provide a safe haven until an adoptive home is found.



Our foster care program places animals in a home environment allowing us the opportunity to assess their personalities and specific needs. This process gives us the ability to place the animal in the “right” adoptive home by matching the needs of the adoptive person or family with the most suitable animal available.

New Mexico Pets ALIVE! (Albuquerque, New Mexico 87125) is a registered not-for-profit corporation with a pending 501(c)(3) designation.


Inspired by the past 10 years of success of neighboring states achieving no-kill communities (saving all healthy and treatable companion animals entering animal control and private and municipal shelters), New Mexico Pets ALIVE! is embarking upon one of the largest companion animal life-saving efforts in New Mexico’s history.  With the help of some of the most successful veterinarians, behaviorists, rescue group and shelter leaders across North America, achieving upwards up 97% save rates for their communities’ lost, neglected and homeless pets, New Mexico Pets ALIVE! is developing and delivering informational and programmatic resources to help New Mexico achieve this same level of success.

New Mexico Pets ALIVE! is then taking it one step further to help deliver long-term, 21st century solutions for New Mexico’s homeless pet challenges with projects such as the NMPA/ACE + Pet Adoption Centers and The LifeRaft Lodge. Neither type of venue and programming currently exists in New Mexico and only a few similar programs exist in the United States. New Mexico Pets ALIVE! needs your participation to bring these both to fruition for the benefit of New Mexico’s companion animals, pet guardians, and local communities as a whole.  NMPA is currently an all-volunteer effort and needs your help to make the largest positive impact. You can volunteer, donate, or become one of NMPA’s future staff members to help the organization achieve success as quickly as possible.
