Suzanne Brandt

September 29, 1956 – March 3, 2020

Suzanne Brandt selflessly served on our board of directors until January 2020. She was an unusually dedicated and caring advocate for homeless animals and was very proud of our growth as an organization. In honor of Suzanne’s humble spirit and years of leadership, a memorial fund has been established to help abandoned dogs and cats get the care they need. Thank you for helping us remember a remarkable person and a steadfast champion.

Together, we will end animal suffering in northern New Mexico. Thank you for believing in our passion!

Every week 51 volunteers give 143 hours to animals.

Consider becoming a part of our volunteer team! Whether you have a little or a lot of time, we welcome your help. Many of the animals that come through our door have limited socialization or training. With a little love, attention and exercise, these animals become more adoptable. Plus spending time with them will put a smile on your face.

I have walked dogs, volunteered at the mobile adoptions, served on the board and worked on the auction committee.  The Espanola Valley Humane Society is in my will because I want to make sure their important work will continue to help animals in such a challenging community.”</span>

After the concert I read more about the area they serve and the shelter became our cause.  I love the Pet Amigos outreach program and think the innovative way the humane society works within the community sets them apart from a lot of shelters.”</span>

Her competence, creativity, humor, and love for animals are so impressive and inspiring to me. The shelter does so much for animals in a state that’s often pretty rough on our wonderful four-legged friends. Thank you, Bridget and your terrific staff!”</span>
