Welcome to Southwest Llama Rescue, Inc. (SWLR)

logo


SWLR takes in llamas and alpacas that are abused and neglected, or from owners unable to keep their llamas due to failing health, aging, or lifestyle changes. We also work closely with law enforcement officials and animal control authorities.

We arrange and support foster care for those willing to adopt rescues, or for those who can provide foster care while the animals await placement. We provide information, advice, mentors and offer a long-term contract with anyone adopting one of our llamas.

Please look through our pages, learn about who we are and what we do... and maybe fall in love with a llama or two!

If you have any questions, please contact your nearest coordinator.

SWLR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization incorporated in New Mexico,
and funded by donations and adoption fees.

"Rinda's Pond" is a memorial to our dear SWLR friend who died on April 10th 2013. It is shaped like a tear drop with a broken heart in the center. You can add a heart rock in rememberance of a friend or animal you have lost. The rock should be small like those in the photo. The rocks in the photo are ones we have picked up off the ground while hiking. Write the name of the person or animal to be remembered on the back using permanent sharpie marker and send it along with a donation to SWLR.

Activities
We often offer activities to the public. Please feel free to contact us to join in. We offer llama walks and llama visits for individuals and groups. If you would like to visit one of our foster farms--including those in Tularosa, Edgewood and Silver City--please contact us. Since each farm is privately owned, arrangements must be made in advance.
Education
The members of SWLR are active educators in the community. It is our hope that through sharing knowledge about llamas and their needs, we can improve the lives of llamas and the people who love and care for them. We work with schools and youth groups as well as volunteers in our ongoing commitment to llama education.
SWLR Mission Statement
To provide safe refuge for unwanted, neglected or abandoned llamas through intervention, education and necessary support. To seek placement and lifelong care for all llamas entrusted to our care.
