Desert Paws Animal Rescue

It takes one person to abandon an animal.
It takes a community to get that pet adopted.

Desert Paws is a New Mexico non-profit, no-kill animal rescue and adoption service. We foster pets who are abandoned or are at risk of being killed at local animal shelters. We also work with families to KEEP their family pets. If a pet must be re-homed due to death/illness of owner, we help re-home the pet and avoid shelter placement. We believe in the no-kill concept. We are an all-volunteer organization and 100% of your donations go towards pet food and medical care.

Desert Paws NM Dog Driver - we need a vehicle :-)

                             Where to?

Many thanks to Bob R and Linda B for stepping up in our time of need this weekend. Our transportation vehicle is 20 yrs old and broke down for the second time in a week. Thanks to them we were able to keep our vet apps and have our adoption event. We do really need a reliable vehicle – if anyone knows of a low mileage mid-sized suv that someone might donate or offer very cheaply please let us know! or text/vm 505-702-9396
