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.

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.
