We’ve partnered with GoodPup, the nation’s leading online training service. GoodPup offers a private 1-on-1 video chat with certified trainers who teach cues and advanced behaviors like crate and potty training, and how to curb other behaviors like barking, begging, and jumping — all in a positive way.

Since you adopted us, GoodPup offers one week of free dog training. If you choose to continue with the training, you will receive 10% off of your membership.

What’s more, with every sign-up, GoodPup makes a generous donation to Española Humane and that helps all animals in our community.

More Questions?

  • How much does it cost to adopt a pet?

    Puppies and kittens range from $10 to $50. Adults over 6 months are usually free. Adoption fees will be higher for certain breeds and in some locations. For example, Ojo Santa Fe puppies are typically $150. 

  • How do my adoption fees help the shelter?

    Adoption fees help with medical care, food, and shelter for all animals, not just the youngest or cutest. Most of that expense is paid by our fundraising efforts

  • How can I prepare my home for adoption?

    It depends on your furry’s age and whether they’re a dog or cat. Check out our tips for preparing your home for your new pet. We provide you with a “starter kit” of a collar, pet food and treats.

    Also learn about the 3-3-3 rule. It takes a new pet 3 days to calm down, 3 weeks to adapt to your family, and 3 months to bond and build trust. Don’t worry. We’ll have more details and other tips in your adoption package. 

  • How do I become a foster parent?

    It’s simple. Start by filling out a foster application and our team will contact you. Fostering can be as easy as having a litter of young ones in a spare bathroom before they go to an adoption event. Or, maybe you’d like an adult to spend time with your family, just to see how that pet transforms with a little love and attention. We promise it’ll be rewarding.
