Operation Silent Night

Collect comfort gifts for City shelter animals

Celebrate the season of giving by helping Animal Welfare Department homeless animals with comfort gifts. The cats and dogs wish list includes small cat toys, treats, beds, brushes, wand toys, scratchers, blankets, towels, dog enrichment toys, collars, harnesses, peanut butter, and Kong’s. Please help them by fulfilling their wish list as they spend their holidays at Animal Welfare shelters while waiting to find forever homes. 

Donations will be accepted through December 24. Members of the public can drop off their donations at the Animal Welfare Department shelters. For a listing of other locations, go to

If you order anything on Amazon through and select Kennel Kompadres, then a percentage of your purchases will go to Kennel Kompadres every time you order.  At no cost to you! 

You can order goodies for the animals at AWD through and the Wish List for the Albuquerque Shelter Animals.  This is a direct link to the Kennel Kompadres wish list or you can go to and “find wish list" and type "Kennel Kompadres". Money donations are handled by Albuquerque kennel Kompadres.
