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.


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!

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 week ago   ·  3
Kim WitwerHe and Lola get along great! (He's on the couch in Buddy's spot!)1 week 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 week ago   ·  2

This thrift store is amazing as are the people who run it. Nancy Baumgarden from SWARF heads up the thrift store and this event. Instead of thrift store think Nordstroms and Horchow resale + eclectic + vintage = Secondhand Treasures. A must see. Please come out and support Fur and Feather Animal Assistance! ... See MoreSee Less

THIS SUNDAY 3/15/15 from 10 - 4 is the 4th anniversary celebration for our thrift store, Secondhand Treasures. On a regular day 100% of our PROFITS help needy animals. On Sunday 100% OF EVERYTHING WE MAKE THAT DAY will be divided among the other local rescue groups who will be attending that day's adoption event with their dogs! In addition to dog adoptions, there will be a HUGE sale, great food, music, and a silent auction. Please come, shop, bring a donation, adopt a dog, and let us thank you for four years of generous donations for the animals. We turn your unwanted stuff into aid for unwanted animals. Secondhand Treasures, 3701 Corrales Road, Corrales NM.
