Service Dogs of New Mexico is a passionate, female Veteran owned and operated 501c3 non-profit organization. The group places dogs with veterans, as well as children and adults with challenges that require a service dog.

They get their dogs from foster care facilities and rescue groups to assure they are service dog worthy. Working with a Veteran trainer, they create a specific training plan for each client according to their needs. They provide training at their facility, as well as clients’ homes. SDNM believes in training
the handlers to train their service dogs, which forms the concrete bond necessary between a
service dog and its owner.

SDNM also trains businesses on the law with regard to service dogs as a means of creating a unity between service dog teams and the community. They take therapy dogs to veteran’s court to help calm our Veterans as well.
