We are convinced by these results that transport is the answer to rescuing thousands of dogs and cats in the coming years, and we are happy to say that because of the health and training of our dogs (see, ‘Why Our Pets are Vibrantly Healthy’ on our website), we are adding more rescue partners every week!

We want to give HUGE thanks to our new board president, Richard Feit (see his letter of introduction in this newsletter), who transported our most recent three passengers, Cecil the Old English Bulldog (rescued in the Dona Ana County Old English Bulldog Puppy Mill rescue), Red Rider the Red Heeler puppy, a...

After we were embezzled by a former (now convicted) office manager, SBDC help...

After meeting Spice and her sister Cinnamon in 2010, Spice has gone to her 'princess home' with one of our trusted adopters, Kathy Mongaraz. We all cried with Kathy when she shared that her former AVNM adopted dog, 'Big Larry,' named 'Ari' by she and her husband, had died. After losing her beloved husband just a few months ago, the loss of sweet Ari was more than Kathy could bear. She called me, wanting to know if we had any calm, mature dogs looking for a new mommy.

'Just a Little Justice, Please?'


Many have asked us about our Inspection of Public Records case against Dona Ana County.  Although  attorney Peter Goodman, who represents Animal Village in the case, has asked us not to say much about it, we can report that our hearing Thursday in Judge Mary Rosner's courtroom, District Court 3, Las Cruces, seemed to go very well.  

The purpose of the hearing was to petition the court for a writ of mandamus regarding two puppy mills in Dona Ana County. The first puppy mill rescue, involving a Chihuahua/Pomeranian breeder, was effected by Animal Village...
