 TNR Program; Trap-Neuter-Release

Got Ferals? If you feed them, please get them "fixed" or they will multiply and compound the feral cat problem. 
We operate the only Trap-Neuter-Return program in the county which address feral cat overpopulation.

Do you know someone feeding feral cats? 
DAG will assist with the spay/neuter cost and rabies vaccination for feral cats that have caretakers willing to take them back and continue to feed them. The program is called TNR - trap/neuter/return. Deming Animal Guardians (DAG) has feral cat traps to loan out. Most of our callers do their own trapping and transportation, but occasionally someone needs help. For this reason, Feral cat volunteers are needed to assist with trapping cats, transporting to vet, and returning the cats to their caretakers. 
Call Robyn at 575-546-9711 for more information on getting coupons to spay/neuter or volunteering to help the feral kitties of Luna County, NM.

                             Humane Education

Pass the word, Animal cruelty is a criminal offense. You may report suspected abuse to New Mexico animal cruelty hotline 877-548-6263.

We also provide animal education and awareness to our local Deming Girl Scouts whenever we can.

Here is a great video for the little ones. Videos like these help teach and prevent injury to our children through fun education. 

Emergency Pet Food Bank

We operate an Emergency Pet Food Bank in Luna County NM which allows low-income pet owners to retain their pets and channels those same pets into the DAG and local spay/neuter programs
