PACA / AAR, incorporated in 1973, is the oldest no-kill animal rescue group in New Mexico. Our main focus is abandoned, abused cats and dogs. We provide all needed medical care, spay/neuter, as well as any major surgery required. We also provide a safe haven until an adoptive home is found. Our foster care program places animals in a home environment allowing us the opportunity to assess their personalities and specific needs. This process gives us the ability to place the animal in the "right" adoptive home by matching the needs of the adoptive person or family with the most suitable animal available.
