We are a private 501c3 non-profit, no-kill, all-breed rescue life-saving organization for pets abandoned to municipal shelters. We are located at a highly visible & accessible property on NM Hwy 54/70. We have ‘stepped out in faith’ that we will receive the funding and support to save the lives of the animals that we love.
All of our Adoptable Pets have been spayed or neutered, are up to date on all their shots, and have been through basic obedience training.
Our cat adoptions are to indoor only homes, no declawing allowed. As our pets have already faced death from euthanasia in shelters, we don't want our adopted cats or kittens to again face death from cars on the road, or by predators. We adopt dogs as family members, not to watch a family live their lives through the window from a backyard, but as beloved companions, who will sleep inside the guardians’ homes, and be an active part of their lives. All dogs are obedience trained prior to adoption and adopters must attend free on-site training courses.
AVNM assists our adopters with K9 training and educational support to offer their adopted pets. We expect a lifetime commitment that gives dogs and cats a real place in their families’ lives, and hearts. We are dedicated to this goal.
Animal Village NM offers a 7-acre nature trail and dog walk for the use of volunteers, adopters and the community.
Please support our efforts to maintain our animal welfare center as a place of kindness, safety and excellent care for our beloved animal companions. We are walking our talk here, saving lives daily, with your help.
