Whenever you leave your pet in the caring hands of New Mexican Kennels, you'll be happy to know that we have 66 years of experience taking care of pets. With our experience, comes knowledge, which is why we require certain information from you before your pet's first visit, to make sure that your pet's stay is easier for him/her and to ease your mind while your pet is in our care. Before calling to reserve your pet's FIRST visit, be sure to have the following information ready to give us:


  • Home Phone Number
  • Email Address
  • Best Time To Reach You
  • Name of Pet
  • Breed or Type
  • Date of Birth
  • Sex

  • Medication - type and administration instructions
  • Special Needs (i.e. older pets)
  • Behavioral issues (shy, fearful, aggressive, etc.)
  • Check In Date

Having this information when you call 505-344-0158 for your reservation or when you visit us for a kennel tour, will speed up the process and insure that we have everything we need to properly care for your pet.
