Our Story

a wavy orange line separating the title from the content.

The Friends of the Mountainair Animal Shelter (FoMAS) is a 501c3 nonprofit dedicated to improving the quality of life of all dogs who come to our shelter. Our mission strives to ensure that all dogs rescued by the Mountainair Animal Shelter receive the highest quality of care and are matched with the right families who welcome these dogs into their homes. We also provide the Mountainair community and surrounding areas with resources and information regarding animal welfare.

Who We Are

Our volunteers have single-handedly rescued dozens of dogs from high-kill shelters, rehabilitated them for medical problems or emotional stress and gotten them adopted into loving homes. We believe there is a permanent home for every single dog.
