APNM's Straw Fund

Every animal deserves warmth and security—all year long.

About APNM's Straw Fund

Animal Protection of New Mexico’s Straw Fund ensures the availability of insulating straw as needed or requested for any backyard doghouse or outdoor shelter within Albuquerque, Bernalillo County, Santa Fe, and Santa Fe County, through our partnership with these agencies:

A gift to the Straw Fund will help domestic animals living outdoors stay snug and warm – even through the coldest winter nights.

We want to expand the reach of the Straw Fund to other locations in New Mexico. Your donation will allow us to partner with even more animal services departments to provide free straw for our furry friends living outdoors – whenever the need arises.

Straw is effective, inexpensive insulation—just one $7 bale can help keep three animals warm! At only $7 per bale, even small contributions to APNM’s Straw Fund go a long way toward providing wintertime protection for companion animals living outdoors. Thank you! It’s easy to contribute!
