Viva! NM Rural Animal Rescue thrives on donations. We are a non-profit organization that depends on money, time, and resources given by those who want to make a difference in the lives of rescue dogs.

If you would like to help us with our goals of responsibly re-homing pets, promoting spay and neuter, community education, networking with other rescues, and helping shelters achieve an online presence, we have several ways you can help.

Donate Money

Although we don’t have a facility to maintain, we always need money to help dogs in need — from food to shelter to veterinarian care and everything in-between. You can donate to Viva! NM Rural Animal Rescue via our PayPal link below.

Anything you can give helps us help our furry friends — every donation counts!

Donate Resources

We are always in need of dog supplies such as: dog beds, kennels, exercise pens, dog food, treats, toys, collars, leashes, grooming supplies, and bowls.


Other items that are useful are: towels (used in kennels on transports), sheets/blankets, and comforters. All of these items can be either new, or used. We are also in need of gas cards/funds to help with fuel for transports and drivers for transport (can be done in legs, but for some transports round trip is best).
