In Observance of Freedom 4th

Holiday schedule

The Albuquerque Animal Welfare Eastside and Westside shelters will be closed on Thursday, July 4, except for the intake desk and reclaims. Credit cards will not be accepted for reclaims on that day.  The shelters will resume services on Friday, July 5.

Lucky Paws adoption center located in Coronado Mall near Kohl’s will be open to the public on Thursday, July 4, from 11:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.

Should your pet get lost and end up at either shelter, Animal Welfare wants to expedite the process. If your pet already has a microchip, a license and is spayed or neutered, he or she will be returned to you free of charge. All you have to do is pick up your pets at the shelter.
