New Mexico Spay and Neuter License Plates are adorable. Have you seen them? Proceeds from this purchase help our cause too!  

"Don't Litter, Spay - Neuter."  


"When animals are abused, people are at risk. When people are abused, animals are at risk." ~ APNM


Learn and Educate proper care of pets and if you see abuse, please report it to the authorities.

Do not leave animals in hot cars or in the hot afternoon sun.

Remember to feed, water and exercise daily for a well adjusted pet.

Unless you are a licensed breeder, please spay/neuter your pets to keep over population down.

Consider micro-chipping your pets; at minimum be sure they wear a collar with your contact information. 

Keep them off the streets and out of harms way.

New Mexico has tethering laws, please learn them.

Cruelty to Animals is a Crime: Negligently mistreating, injuring, killing without lawful jurisdiction, or tormenting an animal is a crime. Abandonment or failing to provide necessary sustenance is a felony!

Extreme Animal Cruelty is a Crime: Intentionally or maliciously torturing, mutilating, injuring or poisoning an animal is a crime.

Animal abuse is a Federal Crime. Report Abuse to New Mexico Animal Cruelty Hotline. Phone

The Dangerous Dog Act:
Holds dog owners criminally and civilly accountable if their dogs cause harm and prescribes ways to identify, register, handle and house dangerous or potentially dangerous dogs that pose a threat to public safety.

What is a DAG volunteer? We would like to think we're like Taylor's group: 

"On a whole, you could describe our people as positive, healthy, knowledge-hungry, grateful, energetic, slightly geeky, and most importantly, driven by a strong desire to make a difference in 

the world!"
