Where Our Funds Go

  • We fund several local no-kill groups that rescue animals that would otherwise die. These groups provide veterinary care, foster care and permanent adoption placement.
  • We provide financial assistance to the Spay/Neuter Coalition of New Mexico and in-kind contributions to the OSCAR Foundation
  • We provide hospice care for terminally ill animals and sanctuary care for un-adoptable animals.
100% of cash donations and 100% of our thrift store profits are used for medical expenses, food, supplies, and services for the animals. We also collect clean blankets, towels, comforters, pet beds, new and used crates, puppy pens, baby gates etc. and distribute them to our associated rescue groups. (we cannot accept open or expired packages of pet food.)
