The new Artesia Animal Shelter is located at 501 Paddy Wagon RD directly north of the Public Safety Complex.
The grand opening for this building was held in 2013. The new location is a spacious, clean environment for pets awaiting their owners or new adoptive families.
The shelter is run in cooperation with the Artesia Paws and Claws organization. This organization assists in locating forever homes for the numerous strays that are found within the city and county.
