Denkai has leased this incredible facility in Farmington, New Mexico. We have 11,000 Square feet of building space to convert into an affordable care veterinary clinic and shelter for pet animals, equine and farm animals in need.
Denkai has secured the old Haliburton building site located at 3110 Bloomfield Highway and 909 South Hutton Street in Farmington, NM.
We plan to build into this location in phases as we work on the planning and fundraising needed for the animal shelter.
Our initial phase will involve setting up and operation of the bargain/thrift store and vehicle donation program as sustainable, income producing activities supporting the non profit activities.
Planning and fundraising for the shelter piece is currently in process as these two stages are developing.
Please remember that Denkai has encompassed the store and vehicle donation program for most of our organizational life and we are so very excited to have a location to operate out of for every service we offer.
Area of Need
New Mexico is a state heavily impacted by stray, unwanted, abandoned and severely abused domestic animals.

Area shelters and rescues provide services to over 13,000 animals in Northeastern New Mexico alone. A number that can not begin to touch the needs of a vast area.
Denkai plans to help and here is how we plan to do it and sustain operations:
Activities on-site will include:
This is an informal write up of our projected operating budget for 2021-2022.
Estimated costs for the shelter build out are rough at this point and will adjust as the capital estimates come in.
It is a literal Miracle that this gelding is still standing. We are on day two with him and he is eating voraciously. He is an owner surrender and from a surrounding reservation. We are thankful that they reached out for help!
So we have named this incredible gelding Sihasin. This word means Hope in Navajo.
Again, we do believe that this condition has been brought on by lack of dental care, but if there are any other medical conditions going on with him, we will find out when the vet arrives.
Currently, he is getting mash senior feed with bran twice per day. He has been de-wormed as well an
