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. 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 weekend 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 for shelter and foster puppies and kittens vary from $10 to $50 and are fee-waived for adult pets over 6 months. Ojo Santa Fe puppies and kittens are generally available for $150. Adoption fees may be higher for certain breeds.

We wish you all the best for you and your new furry friend!
