Pets For Seniors

The Doña Ana County Humane Society offers to pay for $25 towards the adoption fee for senior citizens who wish to adopt a pet from the Animal Service Center of the Mesilla Valley (ASCMV).

  • The Pets for Seniors Program helps pay the fees to the ASCMV for seniors age 60 and older who adopt a companion dog or cat.

  • The discount is $25 off of the ASCMV's adoption fee. ASCMV pets are all microchipped, in addition to their vaccines and spay/neuter surgery.

  • We also offer two free training for any dog adopted through Pets for Seniors that is experiencing behavioral issues. Please see our Ruff to Ready Program for more information.

  • The Pets for Seniors Program is administered by the ASCMV staff at the time of adoption.

The most serious disease for older people is not cancer or heart disease - its loneliness. Pets offer affection, unconditional love, fight loneliness and can help ease the loss of a loved one.

To adopt a companion pet and qualify for the program, go directly to the Animal Service Center of the Mesilla Valley, 3551 Bataan Memorial West. ​For more information, call (575)-647-4808
