Animal Welfare is Expecting in April

Help hundreds of kittens and puppies with needed items

The Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is expecting hundreds of orphaned kittens and puppies anytime now and throughout the summer season. When the new arrivals come to the shelter, we will be in need of certain items to help take care of these bundles of joy. The city shelter is hosting a virtual kitten and puppy shower from now until the end of July 31.

 You can help save these fragile lives by donating items listed on our furbaby registry which you can review at Go to wish list on and type in Albuquerque Animal Welfare.

Donations will be accepted April 1 through July 31. Members of the public can drop off their donations at any of our Animal Welfare Department shelters.  Listing of other locations: 

Petco Stores:

  • 10700 Lomas Blvd. NE
  • 6300 San Mateo NE
  • 3601 Old Airport NW

Animal Welfare is always looking for foster parents to provide temporary homes for animals. If you are interested in helping, please contact Bet Lotosky at [email protected]. Fostering is a rewarding experience, knowing you’re helping to save precious lives.

Thank you for being a hero to all the homeless pets at Animal Welfare Department shelters.
