Our Adoptable Pets



We introduce you to our adoptable pets by appointment once we have processed your adoption application.  Please scroll through our gallery and click on the Adopt Me tab to fill out your application.


  Adoptable Cats    Adoptable Dogs

We have made sure that your new pet is or will be spayed or neutered, fully vaccinated, socialized, and microchipped. All adoptable dogs are house-trained and have been through a basic obedience course. After spending our resources and sometimes months or years to set them up for success in their new homes, our reference verifications assure us that you are an experienced, committed, loving guardian who we can trust with a precious life. We adopt only to those who will treat our pets as family members, keeping the cats safe indoors at all times (unless a safe cattery is attached to the home), and the dogs as inside pets unless supervised outdoors by guardians.


Instructions for adopting a pet from AVNM:


1. If you are an experienced pet guardian with stellar references from a veterinarian who has provided care to your pets in the past (or currently) fill out the adoption application available in ‘App Instructions’ section at www.AnimalVillageNM.org.


2. Submit the completed application either by fax to 575-562-7200, or by email to AnimalVillageNM1@gmail.com.


3. Using the ‘Donate’ button, submit your application fee of $49.00. This fee is applied to the adoption fee of all adopters when their applications are approved. This fee helps to offset the costs of home visits, reference checks, and verifying veterinary histories. When approved, you will be contacted for an appointment to come to our shelter and meet the pets in whom you are interested.
