Animal Humane New Mexico Seeks Support After Rescuing 86 Pets from Disasters

Animal Humane New Mexico is urgently seeking community support after a challenging week of emergency rescues. The organization responded to critical situations in Ruidoso and Las Vegas, where fires and floods endangered shelter pets.

As per Yahoo On July 18, the Humane Society of Lincoln County requested help evacuating animals from the South Fork and Salt fires. A dedicated team from Animal Humane, with assistance from the Best Friends Animal Society, rescued 36 cats and 23 dogs.

Just days later, on June 24, the Las Vegas Animal Care Center faced a severe flood that left them without potable water, prompting Animal Humane to rescue an additional 27 cats.

Now sheltering 86 new pets in Albuquerque, Animal Humane is in urgent need of medical supplies and basic necessities to care for these animals.

As New Mexico’s leading non-profit animal welfare organization, they rely heavily on community donations and support. The sudden influx has put a significant strain on resources, and the organization is appealing for help.

Adoption is one of the best ways to ease the shelter’s burden. Animal Humane operates three locations in Albuquerque, open daily from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
