Since 1939, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter has been dedicated to its mission: support animals, save lives, spread compassion.
We are northern New Mexico’s only open-admission, no-kill shelter.
We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Our federal tax ID # is 85-6000484.
The Shelter focuses on spay/neuter programs to control overpopulation, creative adoption efforts to bring pets to loving families and dozens of programs providing support for marginalized animals.
Thanks to a partnership with the City of Santa Fe and the Bureau of Land Management, the main Shelter is housed on a 100-acre campus with hiking trails and plenty of room to walk dogs.
Come visit our facilities to see how Santa Fe cares for its animals. The Shelter is not just a place to adopt an animal or find a missing one but a place to visit over and over again. This is your Shelter, built by our community – a place to find joy with the animals.
