Information about Animal Welfare.
Albuquerque's lost and adoptable pets are our number-one priority.
We are honored to help with pet-care needs and questions.
Adopt a Pet
Adopting a pet is a wonderful experience.
Many rescue and specialty groups throughout the state help our animals to find forever homes.
Sometimes animals can get noisy and it can be a distraction.
Volunteer at a Shelter
Feel great and help shelter animals through volunteering.
Fostering a Pet
Fostering a pet is a wonderful experience. It also is tax-deductible.
Lucky Paws - Mobile Lucky Paws
Lucky Paws is the first municipal retail pet adoption center in Albuquerque.
Tight economy forces owners to abandon beloved pets due to inability to pay for basic food supply and care. See what one organization is doing about it.
You can help Kennel Kompadres help the animals of Albuquerque.
