Santa Fe Animal Shelter and Humane Society

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter is a facility were domestic and wild animals are treated and cared for. They also find homes for animals or help people with there pets. I noticed that a lot of animals have been hurt and that people should treat animals right. I love animals and I would like to help more.


Our favorite part was visting and petting the dogs and cats up for adoption and of course, volunteering to hold PUPPIES!

Wonderings: " Why do they have more animals than the shelter in Albuquerque?"

Fun Fact:
The animal shelter has a thrift store called "Look What The Cat Dragged In." It is located 2, 541 W. Cordova Road.
