Many animals pass through the Humane Society and a few remain for the rest of their lives. We pay tribute to those that stayed and enriched our lives.

Health Careers Academy






20 students and some teachers volunteered their time to socialize the animals.  Thanks to WNMU and UNM by The Center Fort Health Innovations allows students to interact with the community.  12 puppies, our guard dogs and various other animals were bathed and taken out on many walks.  Others played with the kittens in and outside of the facility, and even more helped with the up'keep of the kennels and outside runs.  Thank you again from all of us here at The High Desert Humane Society.
