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.


Hey Laurie, if someone happens to find a male beagle about 11/2 we are missing one. His name is Judo! Thank you
Love and prayers for you and Brad!

Yay for Stewart!
A long time friend and supporter of ours, Judy, took him home today. He will have a great life. Stewart will be an only child, go everywhere with her and will live out in the wide open, never to be kenneled again! We are so happy for him.

Luke Update:
He is neutered, up to date on all shots, microchipped, heart worm and tick fever tested negative, and has had a full blood work panel. He is a win win!

Luke is in need of a forever home!
Luke is a 1-2 year old Cairn terrier mix with LOTS of personality and charm. He weighs 21.3 lbs and is crate trained. Loves to go for walks on a leash. He has not been around children or cats yet. He was rescued from an Oklahoma shelter via a Texas rescue group. Luke is now happy to call himself a New Mexican. He is currently in foster and would LOVE to have a forever home.

My rescue and other friends - please repost to find Luke a home!

Fur and Feather Animal AssistanceHi you guys, Laurie here from FFAA where Dozer was the last year. We were so happy to see your family photo with Dozer. I really hope it is working out. Please feel free to contact us if you like, we have many photos and stories. Please keep us posted.1 week ago
Kim WitwerWe did. Lola needed a friend since Katana passed away. He's a 7 year old rescue that is as gentle as can be. They even tested him to be a therapy dog and he passed with flying colors!1 month ago   ·  3
Kim WitwerHe and Lola get along great! (He's on the couch in Buddy's spot!)1 month ago   ·  3
Kim WitwerI honestly would have told you I thought I didn't want another dog, Katana was so special to us. I saw his picture and knew he needed us. We met him and we were all in love! He looks like he's had a tough past but he sure was enjoying snoring on the couch last night. He's a perfect fit!1 month ago   ·  2

Kim WitwerHi Laurie! We absolutely LOVE Dozer! He is the perfect match for us! We would love to know more about him. He's such a sweet boy with the kids and listens very well. We can just tell he has such a great heart. I'd love to hear any stories and see any photos. I can tell he has a lot to tell. As you can see he has found a space on the couch! :)1 week ago
Leine StuartWonderful!!! Pookie is a sweetheart, too. He & Dozer were kennel mates at the Santa Fe Animal Shelter (where I met & fell in love with both--am a dog walker at the shelter), then they transferred to Fur & Feathers....& the rest you know! So very happy that Dozer is part of your family now.4 weeks ago
