When WMR was conceived a group of like-minded volunteers began to rescue and find homes for animals in Sandoval County and Albuquerque. Since that time, their rescue efforts have expanded to most of the counties throughout New Mexico as well as southern Texas and Juarez, Mexico. From its small beginnings to the present time, WMR has rescued and adopted out over 150,000 animals into loving homes. The dream has become a reality, and WMR is one of the premier not-for-profit facilities in the Southwest. The 10-acre facility has become New Mexico’s Largest No-Kill Animal Shelter.
