The above site does not have pictures of all animals currently at the shelter. If you have a lost pet go directly to the shelter to be assured they are not there.
There are rescues and shelters outside of Valencia County that are willing to take some of our adoptable pets into rescue. Help is needed to drive them from the shelter to locations in Alamogordo, Albuquerque, Santa Fe, and several shelters in Colorado. If you would like to offer your time and vehicle to help get some of our shelter pets to safe places outside of Valencia County you can sign on as a transport volunteer. Call the shelter at 866-2479 x3 and ask for Patty, the rescue transfer coordinator.

Thanks to Our Friends of the Shelter Donors:
Donations made by people who have supported the Friends of the Shelter program at offsite adoption events, at the shelter, and by mail, have been used to purchase a mobile power washer to clean the walkways, exercise pens, kennels in the animal control trucks and other hard surfaces around the shelter. This is another step forward in improving the sanitation efforts at the Valencia County Animal Shelter. Donations to be used for future projects can be mailed to: Friends of the Shelter, P.O.Box 1285, Peralta, NM 87042. Donations are tax deductible. EIN #85-0478175.
