Fur and Feather Animal Assistance is a permanent residential facility for dogs and cats designed for comfort, well-being, and CARE FOR LIFE. Our no-kill sanctuary is located in rural western New Mexico.

Established in the fall of 2003 our mission is rescuing lost, abandoned, or unwanted animals in Catron County and the surrounding New Mexico communities.

Fur and Feather provides a loving and stable environment at our sanctuary for these animals to live in. We care for each animal through the adoption process or through old age. Fur and Feather has provided homes to pets whose owners can no longer take care of them due to illness, death in the family, or financial crisis. We are also part of a network of shelters that provides a safe haven for the pets of victims of domestic violence. Our residents include disabled and elderly dogs, plus many healthy, abandoned and relinquished dogs of all sizes, types, and personalities.

Every dog and cat that passes through our hands is spayed or neutered. To date we’ve been able to spay or neuter over 1,500 pets.

OUR MISSION:  To alleviate animal suffering by providing sanctuary from abuse, neglect, and homelessness; to end the killing of healthy animals as a method of population control; to teach that animals are intrinsically valuable, worthy of respect, compassion and care. Fur and Feather Animal Assistance, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

Laurie broke her leg last week and is at UNM waiting for surgery. Things are complicated by the cancer. While having visitors is difficult, I'm certain she will welcome cards and prayers and positive energy. The address is:

Laurie Beauchamp
c/o UNM Hospital
Room 537
2211 Lomas NE
Albuquerque, NM 87105

This photo was taken around the time I met Laurie. The little golden butt in the photo is Promise in her pink harness.

THANK YOU Angela Stell and and NMDOG for the dog food donation! We picked up a few hundred lbs of high quality dog food last weekend that was donated by Angela and her group. It was particularly timely as our supply was running very low. Although many dogs have been adopted we still have quite a crew to feed.
Thank you again Angela!

From Tammy Olson - This is a great video that is posted to the Fur and Feather Animal Assistance website. Looks like this was filmed in 2013 and is an excellent overview of the sanctuary. In it, Laurie talks about the intake at the sanctuary, their philosophy, and their needs. ... See MoreSee Less
