Featured Priority Issues
Animal Cruelty Hotline
We are not a law enforcement agency and have no legal authority to intervene directly, but we can help callers identify and report animal abuse and neglect to local authorities. Callers may remain anonymous if they wish.
Cat and dog overpopulation is at a crisis level in New Mexico. Animal Protection New Mexico is pleased to provide a comprehensive directory of low-cost and free spay/neuter programs available throughout New Mexico.
Chimpanzees to Sanctuary
The days of holding, breeding, and using chimpanzees for invasive biomedical research are over. Now we’re making sure the surviving chimps get to sanctuary, where their needs can finally come first.
Companion Animal Rescue Effort
CARE is a network of safe havens for the animals of domestic violence victims in New Mexico. CARE empowers individuals to leave abusive home environments by providing temporary housing for companion animals.
