Adopt a Furry Friend from These Dog Rescue Shelters in Albuquerque

If you’ve been thinking about bringing home a pet, adopt from one of these local animal shelters. There are many dog rescue shelters near our Albuquerque apartments with adorable pups looking for a forever home.


NMDOG is a small non-profit, foster-based dog rescue organization. Once rescued, the dogs are given medical care and training for behavior modifications, making them ready for adoption. NMDOG is genuinely an excellent place to acquire your perfect friend.

City of Albuquerque - Animal Welfare Department

Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is a great place to find a furry friend. They have nearly 900 lost and rescued pets in their shelter. With their years of experience, they can help you pick your best match.

Paws and Stripes

Lindsey Kay, a non-profit entrepreneur, founded Paws and Stripes in 2010 at the age of 24 out of a passion for dogs. Paws and Stripes take in dogs from shelters and put them under extensive training to become service dogs. This makes them great companions for retired veterans.
