The days leading up to Christmas have been turned over to shelter pets – pets posing alongside police officers and firefighters.
As part of its 12 Strays of Christmas promotion, the Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is featuring one pet a day until the big day. The highlighted pets will be available free for adoption.
“The adoption will include spay or neuter, a microchip, required vaccinations and one free initial vet visit,” Animal Welfare said in a news release. “For dogs, you will receive one free dog training class.”
Head to Animal Welfare’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/AlbuquerqueAnimalWelfare, to see the featured pet of the day. They will also be posted on AFR’s or APD’s Facebook pages. Photographer Winston Foto is also part of the team.
On Tuesday, the premier pet happened to be Piper, pictured with AFR Capt. Dominic Archibeque. You can meet Piper at the Eastside shelter, ID No. A1236978.
