The San Juan Animal League is dedicated to the welfare of companion animals in San Juan County, New Mexico. Our goals include:
- improving companion animal health by providing low cost vaccinations.
- reduction of unwanted pets through public education and increased spay and neuter.
- elimination of euthanasia of healthy, adoptable pets through decreased unwanted births and increased successful adoptions.
Who We Are
The San Juan Animal League is a non-profit, all-volunteer humane society for animals located in Farmington, New Mexico. It was started in 1974. The league includes a board of directors and a membership who work to improve the lives of animals in San Juan County. The San Juan Animal League is a nonprofit, 501 (c) (3) organization registered in the state of New Mexico. The League is financed by annual memberships, donations, moneys collected for a variety of items sold at events, and moneys brought in by the low-cost vaccination clinics organized by the League.
What We Do
Our primary goal is to alleviate suffering in the animal population within San Juan County. We advocate, encourage, and support spaying and neutering of dogs and cats. More fixed animals result in fewer unwanted litters and better general health. To this end we have a Spay/Neuter Program that provides financial assistance to people who want to have their pets fixed. In 2013, this program helped with the spay/neuter of 1,400 dogs and cats. The League works toward the prevention of disease in area animal populations by providing low-cost vaccination clinics eight times a year. This enables people who could otherwise not afford to give preventative treatment to their animals to inoculate them against the most common and deadly pet diseases. The Rabies Clinic Program is extremely successful and has provided many people with the opportunity to keep their pets healthy. In 2013, over 2,600 vaccinations were given at these clinics. The Education Program finds opportunities to educate members of the community with regard to the needs and responsibilities of pet ownership. The League provides support and assistance to pets and owners thorough our website and through special programs such as emergency food and medical care.
