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.
