How to Adopt
Thank you for searching for your next best friend at Española Humane. We have a variety of adoptable pets on our website, and our shelter receives pets daily. All adoptable pets are spayed or neutered, age-appropriately vaccinated, and microchipped; dogs are heart-wormed tested and come with six-month free heart-worm medication, and cats are tested for feline leukemia.
View Available Pets Online
Begin the process by viewing our website’s Available Pets page and selecting a pet you would like to adopt. Tip: Choose a location (animals at our shelter or in foster), sex, age and/or size to filter your search results. Some pets may be in foster care or at our Ojo Santa Fe location. Those pets will require a meet-and-greet. Please contact our foster care team for help at [email protected] for the fastest service. You may also call the team at 505-753-8662, ext. 104.
Visit pets at the Shelter
All pets at our shelter are available to meet on a first-come, first-serve basis. Adoption hours are currently 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
Other adoption events
We typically have Saturday mobile adoption events throughout the community, including Santa Fe, Española and Los Alamos. Check our Events Calendar for the next event.
Adoption prices vary
Our adoption prices are currently $10 for puppies and kittens at the shelter and are fee-waived for adult pets over 5 months of age. Foster pets and Ojo Santa Fe puppies and kittens are available for $25. Adult pets are fee waived.
We wish you all the best for you and your new furry friend!
