About F + F
Where Every “One” Deserves a Chance.
Brad and Laurie Beauchamp, founders of Fur and Feather Animal Assistance have been helping animals in rural Catron County, NM for more than ten years. Despite being the largest county in New Mexico, there is no animal control, so our work is critical. In addition to spaying and neutering more than 1,500 animals since 2003 and matching hundreds of animals with loving families, Fur and Feather is dedicated to rescuing lost and abandoned animals and helping out when people die or become incapable of caring for their pets.
Fur and Feather Animal Assistance, Inc. came into existence late in 2003 and is now one of the largest sanctuaries in the State of New Mexico for small animals. We received non-profit status in 2006 and Fur and Feather has been actively housing and adopting animals ever since. Our primary population is dogs and cats; we are also home to several rescued horses, donkeys, and chickens as well. Our 90-acre sanctuary is located in the west central mountains of New Mexico, just 60 miles east of the Arizona Border on Highway 60. Our residents include disabled and elderly dogs, plus many healthy, abandoned and relinquished dogs of all sizes, types, and personalities. We average anywhere from 55-70 or more dogs at any given time depending on our intake and number of adoptions. Our cat population averages around 100 and even though most of them are up for adoption, many of the cats we take in will spend their lives living with us in Pie Town.
Funding is critical to keep things going to take care of the many dogs and cats in our charge. We gratefully accept donations of food, bedding, toys, fencing and building materials, and money.
We are always happy to make appointments for visitors as we love for people to see our facility and meet our animals. Call and make an appointment to come out and see us!
