DONATION INFORMATION

Donations for EMERGENCY VET CARE can be made directly to the Animal Hospital of Los Lunas with a check or through the PayPal link on their website. The county budget can only cover the basics of vet care. Your donation helps cover the cost of the emergency care for the ones that come in hit by a car, embedded collars, sick animals, etc so we do not have to euthanize them.

Checks - 
Please make payable and mail to:
Animal Hospital of Los Lunas
419 Main Street
Los Lunas, NM 87031

“Animal Shelter Donation” needs to be on the memo of the check.

Donations to help SPONSOR a Valencia County Animal Shelter dog or cat for transport to Colorado.

Each week since May 2020, we have been sending a van or two of dogs and cats to rescues in Colorado Springs. This has GREATLY decreased the need for euthanizing healthy animals because we have no space for them. As wonderful as this is, we do not have the money in the county budget this year to support the cost of health certificates, rabies vaccines, heartworm tests, exams and the fuel for the 800 mile round trip every Thursday.

We are asking for your help so we can continue to stay on track with these transfers. ANY amount helps but It is approximately $45-50 per animal and we are sending 20-35 each week.

All For Animals is a wonderful local non profit here in Valencia County and they have offered to have donations come directly through them so 100% of it is tax deductible and can go toward our transfer program.

PayPal donation:
