Albuquerque Animal Welfare sets ‘Mission: Pawsible’ adoption event

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is presenting a two-day mission to pair their animals with their “fur-ever” home this weekend.

During the “Mission: Pawsible” event, set for July 22 and 23, AWD will waive adoption fees for all pets.

Each adoption will include spay or neuter, vaccinations and a microchip. AWD will also offer one day of free basic dog training with every adoption.

The city is also partnering with Boofy’s Best for Pets, who is offering a free adoption bundle valued at $50-70. Anyone who receives the voucher for it can redeem it at either of their locations.
