This volunteer application is currently being used by both New Mexico Pets Alive as well as Innova21 for those interested in the NMPA & Canine Cafe no-kill animal welfare programs being coordinated by NMPA in New Mexico and the Innova21 outside of New Mexico. The programs help both people and pets with proven, effective programming. These are exciting times for progressive, no-kill animal welfare advancements and we thank you in advance for being an important part of those efforts.

Volunteers must be at least 13 years of age. For those volunteers age 13-15, a parent must complete this volunteer form with PARENT INFO (along with including their child's name). Children age 13 - 15 must actively volunteer together with a parent.  Volunteers 16 - 17 may complete this application on their own and may volunteer without a parent but we must have written parental consent.
