Albuquerque Cat Action Team (ACAT)

Albuquerque and New Mexico's first no-kill organization dedicated to enhancing the lives of stray, orphaned, abused and neglected cats. ACAT has adoption clinics at PetSmart at Academy and Wyoming every Friday from 4 to 8 pm and every Saturday from 10 am to 6 pm, and every Sunday from 11 am to 4 pm.


Alliance for Albuquerque Animals

The Alliance for Albuquerque Animals works to enhance the lives of homeless animals in our city's shelters. We improve animals' chances for adoption, and help reduce the number of animals admitted to Albuquerque shelters.



ANEW (Animal Network Efforts by Women) dnd The Arc (All Rescue Cats)

Anew is a non-profit that has been in existence since 2000. Supported primarily by donations, our budget is less than $25,000 per year; all funds go toward the animals. ANEW does not have any paid employees, no kennels or a facility to house the animals until they're adopted -- all animals are in private foster-homes with volunteers.


Animal Humane/New Mexico

Animal Humane/NM's services include sheltering and adoptions, low-cost veterinary clinic for qualifying families in need, behavior helpline and rehabilitation, spaying and neutering, emergency pet sheltering for victims of domestic violence and the homeless, and community outreach/humane education.




CARMA is a New Mexico non-profit, all volunteer, foster care-based corporation aimed at addressing the needs of abandoned, abused, and neglected companion animals (cats and dogs). CARMA's mission is to find loving homes for dogs and cats. We work closely with local Animal Control organizations, particularly in Corrales, to intercept animals before they are euthanized. We emphasize local involvement, but reach out to all communities to assist animals and help with safe and appropriate placement.

New Mexico Animal Friends

A non-profit, our mission is to rescue homeless dogs and cats and provide temporary quality care for them in foster homes until permament adoptive homes can be found. We promote animal welfare through educational efforts and other services and reduce overpopulation in companion animals and feral cats through spay-neuter services.


People's Anti-Cruelty Association (PACA) and Albuquerque Animal Rescue (AAR)

PACA/AAR is the oldest no-kill animal rescue group in New Mexico. Our focus is abandoned, abused cats and dogs. We provide a safe haven until an adoptive home is found. Our foster-care program gives us the opportunity to assess their personalities and specific needs which enables us to place the animal in the “right” adoptive home. We also provide spay/neuter and any medical care including major surgery.
