You can adopt these guys for only $5!

Bo (ID# A1765704) is a 9 year old male, black & tan smooth coated Chihuahua mix weighing 15 pounds. He came in with Ruepert (ID# A 1765703) a 7 year old male, tan & white smooth coated Chihuahua mix weighing 12 pounds. These two do not have to be adopted together but if you’re looking for two then here’s a brotherhood ready for their forever home. These two are volunteer favorites. They enjoy taking walks on leash and love fun times, attention and loving. Each are kinda couch potatoes that just want to “be” and “shadow” their people. Bo is friendly yet a little head shy but loves laps.  Ruepert loves to chase his brother around. They attend play groups but prefer little friends that are polite not pushy and in their faces. They are playful with each other and a joy to be with.  They’d be perfect for a mature home. They are considered senior pets so kids over 8 that are calmer and gentle would be fine. Whether you want one or are ready and able to take both brothers home they are waiting for you at our Eastside shelter, 8920 Lomas Blvd NE.



Our two featured pets qualify for our Young at Heart Senior Pets adoption special.


The City of Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is presenting Young at Heart Senior Pet special. The public can adopt a senior pet who is age 7 years or older for only $5. Each adoption will include spay or neuter, all vaccinations required by law, and a microchip.

The Animal Welfare Department would like to help grant our senior pets their bucket list wish and that’s to find a forever home. They are ready to explore the world and enjoy the good life with a family. A senior pet’s affection is timeless, their devotion is ageless, and their love is forever.

Here are a few great reasons to adopt an older pet:


·         They have unlimited amounts of love to give

·         Experience in the fine art of friendship

·         Older pets have manners

·         What you see is what you get


If you have been considering adding a furry companion to your family, you’re sure to find the perfect fit at Animal Welfare Department.
