Who We Are

On May 6, 2017 we opened the kindest place to bring an unwanted, neglected and homeless animals of Luna County New Mexico.

Our mission is to care for and love, vaccinate, spay and neuter all animals brought into our care prior to re-homing into approved and loving homes. 

In spaying and neutering before re-homing, we hope to stop the needless cycle of unwanted animals in our community.

Since January 2017, and with tremendous help from our community of supporters, we have gradually built and expanded our rescue. We currently have:

* A Kennel Building with 6 indoor/outdoor runs.
* A Dog Quarantine Building.
*A Cat House with open indoor living
   with access to an outdoor "catio"
*  A Cat Quarantine Building 
* An Office Building/Adoption Center  
* A Pet Food Bank Building
* 5 Outdoor Kennels with Doghouse.
   To be completed  in 2021
