If you’re looking to adopt a four-legged friend for your family, this weekend Animal Welfare is hosting an adoption event and the fees are only $5.
It is the “Tear Down Kennel Day” adoption event which is happening to make room for the reconstruction of kennels in one of their shelters.
Paul Castor with Animal Welfare visited New Mexico Living to talk more about this event which is happening Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
“It’s any animal we have in the shelter. We usually put an age limit on that but at this point we really need to clear out some kennels,” says Castor, of the goal Animal Humane is trying to meet with this event.
The shelter needs to empty out seventy-four kennels to tear down and rebuild because they’re simply too old to house animals anymore. In order to do this, these dogs and cats need to be adopted.
If you can’t adopt, there are other ways you can help out Animal Humane, through fostering and rescue partners.
Zar one of Animal Humane’s adoptable residents also visited New Mexico Living – he is a seven-year old Queensland Heeler and German Shepherd mix, a shy, lower energy dog, but is very sweet tempered.
Castor suggests bringing your family to see if any of the potential pets available for adoption is a good match for you.
