EVENT NOTICE: We are currently hosting the Strut your Mutt even partnered with the Best Friends Network! We are looking for volunteers to walk our dogs along the track and record their miles while doing so. This generates funds not only for AnimalVillageNM, but to help Best Friends reach the goal of having all U.S. shelters be no-kill certified by 2025. For more information:
