NMDOG is an all-volunteer, 501(c)3 dog rescue unlike any other. Established in 2011, NMDOG reaches out across the state of New Mexico to the dogs that need help the most: the chained, the abandoned, the victims of the most horrific cases of cruelty, the forgotten ones. To find out how you can foster, adopt, volunteer, or donate, visit or call (505) 886-1PAW.
