As APNM takes a short breather from our exciting 35th year, we find there is much to celebrate from the latest trip around the Sun. We are deeply grateful to all our members, donors, and supporters. Together we are saving animals’ lives and creating a kinder, more compassionate future.

In 2014, our organization achieved remarkable milestones and developed unprecedented partnerships with state agencies, local leadership, and national groups to improve the lives of New Mexico’s animals. Additionally, 2014 was a year of growth for APNM, and we are excited about our increased capacity and ability to make a difference in the lives of animals in 2015 and beyond. None of this could have been done without dedicated support from our friends, colleagues, and associates--please join us in honoring some of the nonhuman and human creatures who touched our lives this year.
