Home visits are required for all adoptions. Special arrangements for adopters out of Albuquerque must be made in advance, but out-of-town adoptions may not be possible. If you live outside of Albuquerque, please call the NMAF office at (505)881-7297 to ask about an out-of-town home visit before traveling to Albuquerque to attend an adoption clinic.
Please call the NMAF office at 881-7297 or email firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about the adoption application or process.
All adopters receive a free checkup by one of our participating veterinarians within the first two weeks after adopting. You also will get a 25% discount for a training class at ABC Dog Training, Corrales Kennels Dog Training, Sandia Dog Obedience Center, and West Mesa School for Dogs.
If within two weeks the adoption is not working out, you may return the animal to NMAF and you will get a refund minus a $15 administrative fee. After the two weeks there is no refund. The adoption contract requires that the dog or cat be returned to NMAF if the adoption does not work out for any reason.
We will be happy to loan you any equipment you might need to get off to a good start with your new companion.
