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 with 2 kennels
.                                                                             * An outdoor (enclosed on 3 sides) with 7 large kennels with dog houses.
* A Cat House with open indoor living with access to an outdoor "catio"
*  A large Cat Quarantine Building for ringworm cases                                                             * A small single kennel Cat Quarantine area for respiratory or new cat quarantine.
* An Office Building/Adoption Center  
* A Pet Food Bank Building                                                                                                       * 7 outdoor exercise areas                                                                                                          * 2 Storage sheds                                                                                                                      * Gazebo with misting system

    If you'd like to volunteer regularly & be part of "Team Compassion", call Chrystal at 575-313-0626

    Fostering is the single most impactful thing we can do to get an animal adopted; we have short term (a few hours to a few days) and long term fostering.  And it's FREE!!!

    If you'd like to be a volunteer dog walker, join the LOSE WEIGHT - WALK DOGS Club on Sundays at 10:30 am. (weather permitting).  Contact Diana at 917-273-1734 or gadbell.3@gmail.com for more information.

We can accommodate a maximum of 25 cats and up to 16 dogs depending on their size.
While our focus is on dogs and cats, we also rescue other animals.
Including chickens, tortoises, pigs, reptiles, birds, horses, goats, ducks,
geese, chickens, rabbits, ferrets, birds, llamas, burro, fish, pigs, and, reptiles.

If you need to surrender your pet, please consider trying to "REHOME" them.  Check out http://home-home.org/shelter/fmtnanimalshelter/ for more information or visit DAGSHIP to register your pet at our kiosk.  It's less traumatic for your pet if they can go directly from your home to another good home and avoid the shelter experience.  We think DAGSHIP Rescue is great but there's no place like home.

If you have lost your pet, try looking on our "Lost & Found" facebook page.                                                                                                           Lost Pets/Found Pets:  If you've lost or found a pet, please also visit www.lost.petcolove.com or www.found.petcolove.com.   Contact us at 575-313-0626 and/or dagshipdirect@gmail.com.  If you cannot keep a "found" pet until it's owner is found, you can contact us to see if we have space available; if not, you can take the animal to the Deming-Luna County Humane Society.

To receive pet food on more than one occasion, your pet MUST BE spayed or neutered.  ​We have discount coupons available to help.
