It's snowing dogs and cats at Animal Welfare....

Albuquerque Animal Welfare (AWD) is in urgent need of emergency foster homes for the holidays.

We are seeking out foster homes to provide long term pets with a much needed break from the shelter. Fosters not only provide homeless pets with an opportunity to flourish in a loving home environment, but they also help our amazing pets find permanent homes so they don't have to come back to the shelter.

AWD provides supplies such as food, toys, medications, etc. All we ask is you provide a safe & welcoming home for a pet in need!

The types of animals that we are seeking temporary homes for are:

*Long Term Shelter Pets- animals who have been in the shelter 30 days or more

*Special Needs Pets- animals with medical needs, cats with FIV etc.

*Pets with Behavior Issues- animals who are shy/scared, animals who are stressing in the shelter etc.

The foster pets are going to need a temporary foster home anywhere from a couple of weeks to possibly a few months depending on the needs of the animal. If you are wanting to give back this holiday, all while getting to hang out with a cool cat or dog, please sign up on our website at:
