AnimalVillageNM Adoption Application

Due to the fact that New Mexico has the highest rate of pet abandonment in America, AnimalVillageNM no longer houses pets for adoption, and intakes only pets who have been PREVIOUSLY adopted by AnimalVillageNM. 


To begin the adoption process of one of our returned pets posted on our social media pages, fill out the adoption application, using the link below, and submit your $25.00 application fee, so that we can begin verifying your references. If your current or previous pet care has been verified by your veterinarians, and your personal references have been verified, we will approve your application.

You may pay this fee at:

Once you have paid the fee (applicable to your adoption fee at the time of adoption), you may let us know via email at

This application asks for in-depth information so that we may determine if you are a good candidate for adopting one of our pets. Our dogs have had basic lessons, are fully vaccinated, and if old enough, spayed or neutered, and microchipped. Please carefully read the directions of each section as you fill out this form.

PLEASE NOTE!:  We only adopt animals out to adopters with PREVIOUS Primary Responsibility for a dog or cat. Because of poor results in the past, we can not adopt out to first-time animal caregivers.

If you are having trouble with the application you can fill out the form using the link below, or send up an email  and we can send you an alternative form.
