About The Center


Our History & Our Growth

Our shelter has deep roots in southeast Albuquerque. Our original footprint that began with a two-story building now occupies 4-acre. We care for 200+ homeless cats and dogs on a daily basis and adopt 4,000+ pets annually while achieving a revered Live Release Rate of 94%. Additionally, our shelter’s 20 Circle of Care programs and services positively impact pets and owners statewide.

To ensure our mission continues to flourish, we have expanded our dog agility and behavior classes on a 2.28 acre parcel across the street from our shelter’s Main Campus. Growth in this arena, as well as the addition of doggie day care and boarding in late 2018 will enable us to sustain and expand our services that New Mexico pets and owners depend on daily.

Pet Training

At The Center, adopters may continue to instill the lessons expertly taught by our shelter Behavior Team during their pet’s stay in our care. And Albuquerqueans with an enthusiasm for agility, behavior & specialty classes may seek out our talented instructors to further their pet’s training. Our diverse classes offer instruction for every stage of your dog’s life and at every level for owners. We look forward to seeing you soon at The Center.

Coming Soon

Animal Humane has expanded their footprint… again. In late 2015, we acquired 2.28 acres of land across the street from our 4-acre Main Campus. This valuable property has allowed us to grow our agility & behavior classes in new and exciting ways! Also, it will permit us to develop new endeavors to serve our community.
