Welcome to Siberian Husky Rescue of New Mexico, Inc.
Siberian Husky Rescue of New Mexico is an all-volunteer, 501 (c)(3) rescue organization devoted to rescuing, rehabilitating, and finding new, permanent, loving homes for Siberian huskies, and often, husky mixes that have ended up neglected, abused, or unwanted. We generally take in and place dogs within New Mexico; however, occasionally, we can take and/or place dogs out-of-state. We prefer to work with potential adopters and other husky rescue organizations to ensure matches are found within their state.
The organization began in late 1998 when a red Siberian husky that was not expected to live much longer due to her injuries was saved from a local shelter by the organization’s founder. Over time, as Cinnamon recovered from her injuries, she not only survived but thrived, proving to be a Christmas miracle! Thus was born our motto “Saving Siberians, one life at a time.” From those humble beginnings, many more huskies found their way to the organization, where people across NM volunteered their time, opened their homes, and donated funds to support this cause-for the love of the Siberian husky.

About Siberian Huskies
Siberian Huskies are magnificent creatures. Young and old alike are captured by their beauty, their charm, their intelligence and their personality.They have brillant eyes, a keen curiosity and an active sense of adventure. While they are truly characters, they are NOT for everyone. Many Siberians have ended up lost and/or abandoned.
The secret to a successful relationship with a Siberian is first and foremost SECURITY. This breed can NEVER be left off leash unless they are in a secured area. Given the chance, very often they will make a break for it, earning their reputation as oppurtunists and escape artists. We require a minimum 5 foot fence, sometimes even higher! Their job and place in history has been pulling sleds, racing, and running for miles. Therefore this breed also requires a great deal of exercise, either from you the owner, and/or perhaps another companion dog.
Siberians are pack animals. They usually do best in multiples. They are always in need of attention from their owners and/or their companion four-legged friends.

THE FAIRGROUNDS DOGS
The dogs seen below were rescued from a terrible hoarding situation in southern New Mexico in September 2013. Siberian Husky Rescue’s own Shirley Fambrough, along with many other compassionate volunteers, dedicated countless hours to saving these dogs, arranging housing and veterinary care for them, and finding loving homes for them. Dozens of dogs have already been adopted, but a few are still waiting for their forever homes. They are sweet, wonderful dogs who suffered emotional and physical abuse and neglect, but they are already overcoming their past and learning to love and trust people again. Won’t you please consider adopting one of them and providing him or her with the loving home they’ve never had?
For more information about adopting these dogs, please contact Shirley Fambrough at 575-491-9577 or Kathy Wallis at 575-430-2361.
