Animal Humane New Mexico has dogs, puppies, cats, and kittens for adoption. Adopt a pet in Albuquerque, NM.
The Portales Police Department provides full-service animal control to all residents within the Portales city limits. Animal Control Officers attend state and national certification classes, and are trained to handle calls for service that involve domestic animals or wildlife. The Division provides patrol service six days per week and may be called out after hours in case of an emergency.
All Animal Control Officers with the Portales Police Department are nationally certified through the National Animal Control Association. In addition, the Animal Control facility, and all of the Animal Control Officers, were the first in the State to be licensed by the New Mexico State Animal Sheltering Board.
All dogs and cats kept within the city limits must get a Portales city license. This license can be picked up at the Animal Shelter. Owners should bring proof of vaccination for their pet(s). The license costs $5.00 per year. In addition to the individual animal registration, Animal Control is responsible for issuing Domestic Livestock, Residential Multi-Animal and Commercial Permits.
The Department encourages responsible pet ownership and has many dogs and cats that are available for adoption.

We are a New Mexico non-profit corporation and a 501(c)3, dedicated to giving pets a SECOND CHANCE at a happy life. We are all volunteer and we exist on donations. We desperately need monetary donations or donations of food, bedding, treats, toys, etc. But even more, we need foster homes, or special homes, that are willing to adopt our special dogs - then we can go out and save some more.... because we take in the dogs that are often overlooked, we have a very slow "turn-over". Please consider adopting a SCAR dog.Animal Humane New Mexico is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit.
