Animal Protection of New Mexico’s Challenging Animal Cruelty program allows us to hear the public’s concerns about animal abuse and neglect in communities all across the state, identify the root causes of that abuse and neglect and address animal abuse and neglect with both short- and long-term solutions.
Animal abuse and neglect are unacceptable in their own right, but it is now undeniable that animal cruelty is inextricably linked to other kinds of family violence. It is a community imperative to be able to effectively thwart animal cruelty. Making New Mexico a safe and enjoyable place to live, work and raise a family makes our state more appealing to businesses and productive members of society.
