TELL NEW MEXICO LAWMAKERS: Fund Statewide Low-Cost Spay/Neuter to Save Lives and Conserve Tax Dollars!
For years, Republican and Democrat policymakers alike have implored the animal protection community to identify and implement a robust funding mechanism — to help people and animals — by making spay/neuter services widespread and affordable. The time to stop skyrocketing euthanasia rates and tax dollar waste is now. But it won’t be possible without your voice.
PETITION: Say “NO” to Horse Slaughter—in New Mexico and Everywhere
Slaughter is not and cannot be a solution to suffering, as it is inherently cruel. Industrialized slaughter is not and can never be humane, no matter where it is practiced.

PETITION: FUND LOW-COST SPAY/NEUTER TO SAVE LIVES & TAX DOLLARS
More than 135,000 cats and dogs enter our state’s animal shelters every year and almost half of them are euthanized simply for lack of adoptive homes. Often, New Mexico’s pet overpopulation problem is made worse because spay and neuter services are either not affordable, inaccessible, or both…
