ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — What if there were no more “found dog” posts on social media? Or no more dogs having to take care of their litters in a shelter?

That’s the vision of the Spay Neuter Coalition of New Mexico, and they’re working with HARTNM and the Valencia County Animal Shelter to make it happen. A volunteer, April Barrick, nominated the president of the coalition, and the woman who runs the clinic’s volunteer program, Faith Richards, to be recognized for her important work in Valencia County.

HARTNM and the Animal Shelter pay for a majority of the surgeries, so it stays low cost for the community.
