Animal Welfare is Expecting

Help hundreds of kittens and puppies with needed items

The cat is out of the bag. 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 need 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 April 30.

You can help save these fragile lives by donating items listed on our baby registry which you can review at and type in Kennel Kompadres.

Donations will be accepted April 12 through April 30. Members of the public can drop off their donations at any of our Animal Welfare Department shelters. For shelter locations, go to

Animal Welfare is always looking for foster parents to provide temporary homes for animals. Fostering is a rewarding experience, knowing you’re helping to save precious lives. If you are interested in fostering, apply here.

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