How to Help Us!

We are always grateful for donations of supplies and money.  Here are some ideas about where we need the most help.  ALL donated monies go directly to the care of our resident animals . . . none of it is used for administrative costs.

EXTRAORDINARY DOGS INC. is a nonprofit organization registered as a public charity in New Mexico, with a 501(c)3 status (EIN 47-1068094).   Please remember that our operation and successful rescue and retraining depends on your generosity.  ALL contributions go directly to the care of the resident dogs, and are tax deductible.



1.   “Subscribe” to a monthly donation  to help us with our dog food fund.  We use 1000 lbs of dog food which amounts to approximately $1500 per month.  We also work with other trusted rescuers and often help them when there is a crisis with some of their animals and they don’t have enough to feed.  Use the Subscribe paypal button to set up a recurring payment to us for a monthly amount of your choosing.

2.  “Buy” us one (1) 30 lb bag of NutriSource grain free dog food for $50.00

3.  Use the following “DONATE” button for a one-time donation in an amount of your comfort and choosing.  You can use this same button to specify the use for your donation, such as DOG FOOD, VETERINARY FUND, etc., or also for which dog we are rescuing.  All our “death row” rescues go immediately to the veterinarian for examination, vaccinations, kennel cough treatment (all dogs from Roswell Animal Control have kennel cough), and spay/neuter.  Some also require additional treatment and/or dental cleaning.

 You can also order from and have it delivered to 118 Pomp Ct END OF ROAD, Capitan, NM 88316.  (I usually buy the NutriSource from Harvey feedstore in Ruidoso Downs, because of their loyalty program)  But here is a link to either the NutriSource or the Zignature brand.

If there is any problem with the buttons, you can simply log into paypal and send any amount to paypal address LIFELONGFRIENDS@EXTRAORDINARYDOGS.COM.   By using the “send to family or friends,” you save us the transaction fee.

You can also mail a donation to EXTRAORDINARY DOGS, P. O. Box 1165, Capitan, NM 88316-1165     Checks can be made out to “Extraordinary Dogs Inc”



“Saving Cheyenne”

We have two campaigns going  . . . the goal is the same but the audiences are varied.  It is critical for us to meet this goal.  If you are comfortable with using Paypal, you can go to the Youcaring Site for “Saving Cheyenne’s Life.   There is also a link on the sidebar.

We also have the same campaign going on POUNDWISHES which crowdfunds for rescues and shelters only.  The funds will be collected by Poundwishes and then disbursed to us.  Poundwishes “Save Cheyenne’s Life.”

Regardless of which fund you use, all contributions will be used for Cheyenne’s medical care.


RAZOO . . . . Capital/Facility Needs

We have listed long-term and immediate goals/needs on our Razoo page.  Some are more critical than others such as the facility upgrade before winter.  We had a rough winter last year . . . the blizzard destroyed some of the kennels, and we learned the hard way where we need to “upgrade” to that we can safely endure another heavy snowfall or blizzard.



RAZOO is a nonprofit crowdfunder that verifies the status of nonprofits and provides a static page for the organization.  It also lists the organizations Guidestar information directly on the page.  They collect donations, and issue checks to the organization after deducting fees.  They also issue the tax receipt to the donor.  We list the link here because the content indicates exactly what your donations will buy, and what we need.   Extraordinary Dogs on Razoo



We are always in need of blankets, towels, dog beds,  collars and leashes, dog toys,  lumber, agility obstacles.  You can also donate items to us for our online store (via Shopify), The Puppy Potpourri, which will be launching soon.  Stay tuned for the announcement.  We will be featuring vintage items, collectibles and unique/hard to find products.  Proceeds from all sales will go to support our operating costs.

If you are local to the area and have used TOWELS or BLANKETS, or items for the online store, you can place them in a bag, label it HELENE/EXTRAORDINARY DOGS and leave it at the “Shabby” thrift store next to the library in Capitan.  They are open Thursday, Friday and Saturday.  If you are not local, you can use our mailing address to send it to us.  (Extraordinary Dogs Inc, POB 1165, Capitan, NM 88316)

Please be sure to indicate the monetary value of the item so that we can issue you a tax receipt.  You can use the contact form or simply send an email to
