Animal Friends of New Mexico Hosts Its First Adoption Fair

    The Animal Friends of New Mexico held its first adoption fair at the Tractor Supply Co. on Saturday, February 2. The Animal Friends of New Mexico consists of various organizations, including area groups, such as the SNAP-Spay Neuter Awareness Program, HALT-Halt a Litter Today, the High Desert Humane Society and Hurley Animal Control. Each organization contributes by volunteering time and resources so adoption, fostering, spay and neutering, education and outreach can become possible.
