From Albuquerque- Take I-25 to Los Lunas Exit (Hwy 6). Go East on Hwy 6/Main Street to Hwy 314 (there is a light and a LotaBurger on the South side of the street). Go South about 1 mile you will see a park on your right hand side (or the West side of the road), we are just South of that park (Daniel Fernandez Park).
Animals taken to the shelter are held for three business days to allow the owner to reclaim the pet. If they are not reclaimed they are available for adoption.
To adopt a pet you need to put a hold on that pet by giving one of the shelter employees your name and phone number and the kennel number of the pet you are interested in. Holds are not placed on animals over the phone. You need to come and visit the animal first and make sure you are truly interested. This way a pet will not be denied a home by someone who has already met the animal.
The shelter employees will tell you when you need to come to the shelter to adopt the pet.
The adoption fee is $92.00 for dogs and puppies and $72.00 for cats and kittens. Adopton fee includes spay/neuter, vaccinations and microchip.
Why should you adopt?
Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
