Mayor Tim Keller announced the results of his administration's nationwide search Tuesday. They include Danny Nevarez as Director, who will oversee the day-to-day operations and improvements. He has been employed with the City of Albuquerque for the last 24 years in a variety of capacities. 

Adam Ricci has been appointed as the new Chief of Field Operations. He will work on new initiatives to ensure the humane treatment of the animals at shelters across the city. Ricci has worked with the Animal Refuge League of Greater Portland in Oregon as a kennel technician and adoption counselor and has a plethora of experience in multiple national animal welfare boards.

“The Animal Welfare Department has been in serious need of a solid leadership team to create an animal-friendly city here in Albuquerque,” said Mayor Keller. “Danny Nevarez and Adam Ricci are going to provide the one-two-punch we need: steady, experienced management and fresh out-of-state expertise to bring proven initiatives to our city. With their help, we will increase spay and neuter programs, find forever homes for more pets, and step up efforts to fight animal abuse.”
