Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico  © 2013

What kind of dog are you? 




We operate strictly through volunteerism, counting on the generosity of others and of ourselves to further our mission.

Our goal is to place them in loving, forever homes and do this through a rigorous screening and adoption process

The mission of Lap Dog Rescue of New Mexico is to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home small companion dogs.
