🇺🇲 The 50 State Rescue Challenge: New Mexico Edition

At Cause for Paws, we’re on a mission:

Get a pet adopted in every state.

This week’s spotlight falls on the Land of Enchantment — New Mexico! 🏜️

Located in Albuquerque, we’re highlighting Animal Humane New Mexico (AHNM), a no-kill shelter for homeless and at-risk dogs and cats.

Established in 1965, AHNM stands out as a leading non-profit animal welfare organization in the state, serving over 10,000 rescue dogs and cats every year.

They never euthanize, regardless of age or length of stay, and have re-homed 100% of healthy pets in their care since 2010!

With remarkable veterinary, social, and emotional care, AHNM is a true leader in providing rescues with another shot at life.

If you’re in New Mexico and looking for a new canine companion, visit AHNM’s website here!
