Mission Statement: 

PACA-AAR is Albuquerque's oldest no-kill dog and cat rescue organization. We rescue abused and abandoned dogs/puppies and cats/kittens from Albuquerque and its surrounding communities. Our goal is to place the animals in loving, permanent homes after spay/neuter and other medical treatment.


CARE FOR LIFE: PACA spays/neuters every animal it rescues. We also provide any medical care and/or behavioral training necessary for the animals before they are adopted out into carefully-screened homes. We do not euthanize and offer the rescued pet "care for life." Animals are kept in foster homes as we do not have a shelter.

FERAL CAT PROGRAM: PACA has a program to help neighborhoods trap, sterilize, and release feral cats.

LOW-COST SPAY/NEUTER: PACA offers low-cost spay neuter to the public when funds are available.

FOSTER EXPERIENCE: PACA allows volunteers to house rescued dogs/puppies and cats/kittens in their homes until they are adopted. This is a rewarding experience for people from all walks of life. Foster volunteers are offered free (dog) behavioral training for their foster pets.
