Dog Adoption Fees Waived

Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department waives its usual fees during a dog adoption drive from September 7 to 9, 2012. 

I’m never quite comfortable talking about pets as if they are a ‘special offer’.  But the fact is that if you’re looking for a new dog, the City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department Free Fido weekend might be of interest to you. And if it helps a dog find a new home, that’s good enough for me.

So here’s the deal. During the Free Fido weekend from Friday September 7 to Sunday September 9, if you adopt an adult dog aged at least one year old from the Eastside or Westside Animal Shelters, you can take the pooch home free of the usual dog adoption fee.

That saves $40- $50 on the regular adult dog adoption fee (depending on the animal’s age). Note that Seniors aged 50+ and veterans and active military personnel always receive a $10 discount on pet adoptions, with suitable ID.

Visitors can talk with a pet adoption expert while they meet the dogs, to receive guidance on the kind of dog best suited to their family and lifestyle.

All other adoption policies remain as usual, it’s just the adoption fee that is waived during the event, and the free dog adoption is only for dogs aged one year or more.

The Free Fido adoption drive is on Friday September 7 from 10:30 am to 8 pm, and on Saturday and Sunday September 8 and 9 from 10:30 am to 6 pm.

The offer is at both the Eastside and Westside Animal Shelters, located at:

Eastside Animal Shelter, 8920 Lomas Boulevard NE.  
Westside Animal Shelter, 11800 Sunset Gardens Road SW.
