Our Featured Pet...

Quinlan is a 1.5 year old female Boxer/Heeler blend. She was found on Dos Lunas off of Hwy 337 on 7/11/16. She was wearing a brown leather collar with spikes on it and is not microchipped. This super sweet girl has had a rough time and has a few bumps and bruises. She doesn't let them keep her down, though. She is very affectionate and will crawl right in your lap and settle in. She appears to be good with other dogs and really loves to run and lounge in the yard. This beautiful baby girl would love to call your lap home. Please call the shelter at 384-5117 to find out how you can make this treasure of a pup yours.

Who We Are

We are a government entity that serves all of the unincorporated areas of Torrance County and have been operational since 2004. We are a small shelter in a rural community, so we have a very small adoption base. Due to that we try to transfer out as many of our adoptable animals as we can to local Animal Humane Associations.

Adopting a friend

Our $80.00 adoption fee covers the sterilization, rabies vaccination, county license, and wellness exam of your new family member. Also included, for cats, the FVRCP vaccination and, for dogs, the DA2PP vaccination and the bordetella intranasal vaccination. If an animal comes to us already sterilized, their adoption fee is only $45.00. Their rabies vaccination, 1st annual vaccination, and county license (if you live in Torrance County) are included in that fee.

Come Visit Us!

We are open to the public as follows: Monday through Thursday from 8:00am to 5:00pm, Friday and Saturday from 8:00am to 1:00pm. To get to the shelter from Albuquerque, take I-40 to the 2nd Moriarty exit and go right (south). Travel south on Highway 41 approximately 9.5 miles. At Clements Road make a left. Go about 50 feet and make another left. We will be in the red panel building on your right hand side. If you have difficulty finding us, please call 384-5117 and we'll be happy to help you.
