Athena is this Animal Humane New Mexico’s Pet of the Week

Every week on New Mexico Living, we bring on a dog from Animal Humane New Mexico, who is ready to go to a loving home they can call their own. Animal Humane New Mexico Events and Promotions Coordinator Madison Beets introduces this week’s Pet of the Week.

If you’re looking for your next new best friend, you would be wise to take a look at Athena. Athletic and well-mannered, and she is a great age to begin her new life.
