Your voice and your actions matter when it comes to protecting animals in New Mexico. And protecting animals creates a more humane community for everyone. Please join us in working to ensure that all animals matter in our beautiful state. Here are some things you can do:
Use Your Tax Refund to Save the Lives of Horses
Do you dread tax season? You can turn that time of year into a positive, powerful way to stand up for animals instead. By filling out the New Mexico PIT-D form you can designate all or part of your refund to the Horse Shelter Rescue Fund. Find out more.
Move Surviving Alamogordo Chimpanzees To Sanctuary Now!
After announcing their ‘Plan to Retire All NIH-Owned and -Supported Chimpanzees’, the National Institutes of Health has made the shocking statement that NONE of the remaining dozens of chimpanzees in Alamogordo should get to leave. This is grim news for chimpanzees like Faylene who never consented to live life inside of a laboratory.
Speak Up for All Animals Along the Rio Grande!
After receiving complaints from people in the area, New Mexico Land Commissioner Stephanie Garcia Richard made the commonsense decision to not allow trapping or hunting on 212 acres of State Trust Land along the Rio Grande in the South Valley, an area directly next to the new Valle de Oro National Wildlife Refuge, and its easily accessible parking. Please, take action for animals and our community to support the State Land Office decision to not allow trapping or hunting in this special area.
Bring Humane Education to Your Child’s School
APNM is reaching out to New Mexico communities to enhance the human-animal bond and help improve safety with and compassion for animals.

Say “NO” to Horse Slaughter—in New Mexico and Everywhere: SIGN THE PETITION
Slaughter is not and cannot be a solution to suffering, as it is inherently cruel. Industrialized slaughter is not and can never be humane, no matter where it is practiced. The only way to prevent suffering of horses is to support safety net programs like the Equine Protection Fund, which ensures feed, veterinary care, adoption for needy horses, and humane euthanasia when homes are not available. Please sign this petition to say YES to humane equine solutions, and NO to cruel horse slaughter!
