June is Adopt-a-Shelter-Cat month

Give a shelter cat a starring role in your life. Adopt a cat one year or older for just $10.


In honor of Adopt-a-Cat Month, the Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is offering a special adoption promotion to encourage the public to adopt shelter cats.

Through June 30, 2015, you can adopt a cat one year or older for just $10. You'll find a wide variety of adult cats to fit many lifestyles and personalities, in all colors, shapes and sizes.

If you adopt a new feline friend, keep in mind you’re doing your part to deal with cat overpopulation. Giving a sheltered cat a starring role in your life, you will gain a faithful companion, a friendship will be formed, and a life may be saved.

What You Get

All cats from the shelter are spayed and neutered.

A cat adopted from Animal Welfare also comes with a microchip, the first round of vaccinations, and a free first visit to a veterinarian.
