ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Along with their Tail Wagger of the Week, Animal Humane joined us Friday morning with lots of information on what they have going on in the coming weeks. One big project they’ve been working on is finally coming to fruition on Veteran’s Day. The premier of “Dogs of War” and the premier party will be happening at Tractor Wells Park Tuesday, November 11. The party kicks off at 8 that night. The film itself is about dogs and how they have and continue to help and benefit current and retired veterans.
Animal Humane is actually the designated shelter for Paws and Stripes, a non-profit that pairs vets with dogs. You will also see them in the film. Along with the film, Animal Humane will be offering free adoptions to all vets now through November 30th. After that, a permanent 50 percent discount will be in place.
Even more, for the rest of the month they are offering free microchips to anyone who wants them. They urge pet owners who do not have these in their pets to get them; it can be the difference between getting your pet back and never seeing them again if they ever get out.
