Adopt | Animal Humane New Mexico
Have you ever seen an adorable cat or kitten up for adoption and featured on your local news channel? Those great cats and kittens aren’t rare finds! They are the norm, and just about everywhere – including right here in Albuquerque – there are too many pets and not enough homes choosing to adopt them. Unfortunately, many animals are still not spayed or neutered resulting in thousands of unwanted cats and kittens each year.Animal Humane New Mexico is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit. We are the state’s leading private animal welfare organization serving cats, dogs and their families. From our main campus in Albuquerque, we partner with shelters across the state to rescue homeless pets. Since January 2010, we have successfully re-homed 100% of the healthy pets in our care! We support every cat and dog at Animal Humane with outstanding veterinary, social and emotional care and, most importantly, LOVE until they are adopted by their new forever families. You might see a cat or kitten for sale at a Albuquerque pet store and assume that buying a cat is the only option. Or you might, as many people do, believe that a cat for sale from a store or a breeder in Albuquerque is somehow “better” than one you might find for adoption in a Albuquerque animal shelter. This is a common misconception, and it couldn’t be further from the truth. The cats and kittens available for adoption at your local shelters and rescue groups are wonderful, sweet, healthy companions who are homeless through no fault of their own. Many times, animals end up in shelters simply because their former owner encountered a financial hardship and could no longer afford to care for them, or perhaps even lost their own home. Whatever the reason, most cats and kittens in shelters are great former pets who have lived in homes, and are often already litterbox trained.Come see and adopt our wonderful cats and kittens 7 days a week at PetSmart, 8070 Academy NE, Albuquerque, NM (at Wyoming, next to Walmart and Smith’s).
