Where the Need
is Greatest

We serve some of New Mexico’s poorest communities, including the Native American Pueblos of Ohkay Owingeh, Santa Clara and San Ildefonso. Our outreach efforts build relationships with pet owners, identify the health of at-risk pets, and schedule surgeries for intact pets.

Upcoming Events

We hold low-cost vaccination and free spay/neuter events at our clinic to help pets in our community stay healthy.
