APA's Dona Ana Pets Alive! campaign is a growing, community-wide grassroots movement to end the needless killing of the approximately 8500 healthy & treatable animals being killed at the Las Cruces municipal shelter every year. We rescued our first 7 dogs and 3 cats from the shelter the week of May 7th. Our first two successful adoptions of some of these dogs are shown in the pictures above from offsite adoptions held at the Tractor Supply Co. and PETCO. We have planned another rescue for June 17th and hope to pull animals every 10-14 days from the shelter to make an impact on the number of dogs killed daily, monthly and yearly
34 diverse communities, with more added each year across the United States, are now saving 90-97% of their sheltered pets. Dona Ana County can do the same.
To JOIN US, call 575-644-0505 or e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. From foster homes for dogs and cats, adoption event volunteers, help from trainers/behaviorists, PR and graphic art skills and donations--it takes a community effort to save our homeless animals' lives.
And we need YOUR help!
We provide services for these animals while continuing to provide services for the community's animals through the pet food bank, low cost vaccinations, spay and neuter vouchers and rescuing court held dogs.
