Española Humane

Touching the lives of more than 143,000 companion animals since opening its doors.

FIND OUT WHO WE ARE

We accept every animal, regardless of how old, sick, or neglected.
We don’t charge intake fees because our client pets live in poverty and would otherwise have no refuge.

The little shelter that could

Every year we complete 4,500 spay/neuters and 10,700 vaccinations while caring for 2,800 animals. Together we can make a real difference in the lives of so many!

HELPING PETS IN NEW MEXICO

Our people share a passion for lifesaving work and a vision for a future where every animal is well cared for and has a loving home.
Quite simply, our mission is to end animal suffering. Will you help?

  • 135,000+ animals helped – our commitment to saving

For the staff and volunteers at Española Humane, our work isn’t merely a job, but our responsibility as humans. We’ve been able to attract the best and the brightest talent in shelter work today, because of our shared commitment to animal welfare.

WHO WE ARE

Our mission is to end animal suffering due to overpopulation and preventable diseases, especially in underserved communities.  And we’re here, without judgment, when surrendering a pet has become the only option. Our goal is to find every dog and cat in our care a happy and loving home. In the meantime, no one is turned away at our open doors.

Española Humane accepts every animal, regardless of how old, sick, neglected or abused. Our mission is to provide compassionate shelter and care to the thousands of animals that would otherwise have no refuge.  If we only accepted highly adoptable pets, the animals turned away would be at risk of being homeless, unwanted, and producing additional litters of homeless animals.  We ensure that these animals have a refuge from struggling on the streets or being neglected by a home where people have no time or resources to care for them.

We manage a city-owned animal shelter, which means that 91% of contributions go directly to the animals in our care. Our programs focus on ending homelessness and addressing the needs of the animals that we serve. We strive to do the greatest good, given limited resources, to help the greatest number of animals.
