Since 2000, APNM has been “catching people in the act” of doing good things for animals, and recognizing them for their humanitarian efforts at its Milagro Awards ceremony, now held every four years.


Milagro Awards

APNM believes in publicly recognizing and thanking those who go out of their way to improve the lives of animals in New Mexico. By bestowing Milagro Awards on those in the community who have made a marked difference for animals, APNM gives public credit to champions for animals. We believe that by doing so, we make it clear that those who work to help animals and promote compassion will be held up as models in our communities.
