  Mission:PAW-ssible Adopt-a-thon August 2&3

Animal Humane New Mexico and the City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department (AWD) have made it their mission to find forever homes for all the pets in their care this summer. Help make this mission "PAW-ssible" by adopting a cat or dog on the weekend of August 2-3 and receive 50% off the adoption price!

Mission: PAW-ssible will be hosted at the Animal Humane Main Campus location at 615 Virginia St. SE----look for the Big Blue adoptions building. Animal Humane will be open extended hours from 9 am - 8 pm Saturday, August 2 and Sunday, August 3, and will have dozens of pets from both the Animal Humane shelter and from the City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department (you can tell which pets have arrived from the City by their bright orange bandanas!). Mission: PAW-ssible is the perfect opportunity to add a furry friend to your family!

In addition to pet adoptions, we'll be providing activities for all pet lovers! Ask top-notch trainers for pet behavior advice and tips, watch live training and agility demonstrations at the Main Campus Dog Park, and take the opportunity to teach your own pet a few new tricks. Grab some grub at the food trucks and enjoy your meal at a picnic table while listening to live music. Don't forget to spin the prize wheel before you leave!
