Hundreds of cities across America are now No Kill cities - saving upwards of 99% of the animals entering their animal control departments and private and municipal shelters. That wonderful number of communities is growing at the rate of approzimately 200% per year!  New Mexico can also have the same level of animal welfare success.  Every year, tens of thousands of lost and homeless pets and community cats are at-risk of entering New Mexico animal control and shelter systems and are then at-risk of not making it out alive. THE GOOD NEWS is there are proven solutions to these challenges and with YOUR HELP, we can fill current animal swelfare programming gaps to help more people and pets. Despite No Kill success happening all across the country, myths continue to circulate so we've created a Dispelling the Myths document for download.


         Behavior Challenges         Family Financial Hardship                 Divorce/Breakup
                          Lost Pets                          Death in Family                   Losing Home


1. Pet Guardian Support to help keep pets in their homes and out of shelters
2. Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender for Pet Guardians who need temporary pet housing assistance to keep their pets or re-homing assistance for pets they can no longer keep in the home

3. Return Lost Pets to Pet Guardians in the field rather than entering shelter system

4. Trap-Neuter-Return for community cats rather than entering the shelter intake system
5. Low-Cost or Free, High-Quality Spay and Neuter Services for Pet Guardians


1. Pro-Active Redemption/Reunion programs for reuniting lost pets entering the shelter system who are not homeless

2. In-shelter medical and mental and physical enrichment programming as well as behavioral modification, foster programs and related services for shelter pets

3. Pets to the People - off-site from shelter, pet adoption locations operating 5 – 7 days per week (some in partnership with local businesses) to help shelter pets gain more public exposure where people gather, work and play.

Each of the aforementioned solutions has been proven to be equally important and must work in concert with each another to maximize the save rates of at-risk lost and homeless pets and community cats in New Mexico.  New Mexico Pets Alive! (NMPA!) is working daily to fill the gaps in promoting and providing the resources, education and programs needed to eliminate the killing of companion animals in New Mexico but we cannot do it without YOUR help.
