New Mexico Shelter Helps Homeless Hurricane Harvey Dogs

New Mexico Shelter Helps Homeless Hurricane Harvey Dogs

New Mexico Pets Alive Needs Donations

New Mexico Pets Alive needs your help. The nonprofit is helping to alleviate the Hurricane Harvey disaster by taking in 50 homeless dogs from Texas and is in need of both donations and assistance in fostering.

“NMPA would not be where we are today if it were not for our friends and first rescue mentors at Austin Pets Alive, a relationship that began six years ago,” the organization said in a press release.

NMPA’s new building to care for incoming dog rescues isn’t yet ready to provide this Hurricane Harvey assistance and they’re working as fast as possible to prepare the building for intake. They need help to take in dogs as quickly as possible. Volunteers are needed seven days a week to prep for intake. The shelter also needs assistance with cleaning, drywall work, setting up kennels, supply outreach and more.

The nonprofit is in need of 20 6’x10’x6′ dog kennels, 50 Kuranda-type/Coolaroo-raised dog beds, and gift cards from Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart, Sam’s Club and Office Depot.

There’s also a matching donation challenge: An anonymous donor wants to ensure funds are available for dog care and will match all donations up to a total of $2,500 made to NMPA that arrive between now and 8 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8.

If you’re interested in fostering and already have a foster form on file with NMPA, send an email for further information. If you do not have a foster form on file, click here to complete one.
