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
