Sheltered Animals Paint Colorful Masterpieces

The City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department companion animals have so many skills, so many talents, and so many things to offer a loving family. In the past month our shelter pets have been working on their own individual paw paintings, and our staff is exhibiting their work in the kennels.

The Animal Welfare Department is pleased to be hosting Adopt an Artist Companion, July 22-23. There will be $10 adoptions for all animals. Each adoption will include spay or neuter, all vaccinations required by law, and a microchip.

Many of our adoptable dogs have worked to create paw print paintings to give to their new families when they are adopted. Families will be able to view prints of the dog’s artwork as they search through our kennels for a new furry friend.

This pet adoption event is aimed at demonstrating how art can be used successfully and imaginatively at a city shelter.

There are over seven hundred animal artists that are committed to their quest, and that is to be adopted. We need your help to make it all happen. Help us by supporting a strong community for the arts and saving a life by adopting a pet.
