ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The newly renovated Kennel Q opened its doors Saturday as part of the special March Muttness pet adoption event.


The Animal Welfare Department's new kennels at the East Side shelter are named in honor of the late animal advocate Terrie Q. Sayre.

About 5,000 pets are waiting to be adopted this weekend, which a discounted $5 adoption fee attached.

"We have every color, every shape," said Desiree Crawley, marketing manager for the Animal Welfare Department. "We could probably find the perfect match for you if you just come out and work with us and open your heart, your home."

Each adoption includes spay or neuter, all the necessary vaccinations, and a microchip.

The Animal Welfare Department is also offering one day of free basic dog training with every adoption.

The March Muttness special runs through Sunday.
