About Espanola Valley Humane Society
The Española Valley Humane Society opened in 1992. Since then, it has touched the lives of more than 135,000 companion animals. Its goal is to find every dog and cat in its care a happy and loving home. It accepts every animal, regardless of how old, sick, neglected or abused. In 2015, EVHS placed 83% of the animals it took in, mostly because of record-breaking efforts at offsite adoption events. Shelter programs focus on ending homelessness and addressing the needs of the animals served, and 86% of its support comes from private donors, grants and benefit events.
Also in 2015, EVHS received a grant from PetSmart Charities to fund rural outreach, free, onsite vaccination clinics, and free transportation of animals to and from the clinic for spay/neuter surgery. EVHS’s goal is to perform 600 free sterilizations from the targeted communities of Santa Clara and Ohkay Owingeh pueblos, and villages of Chimayo, Hernandez and Velarde.
