The Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department is hosting a “Fur-Ever Friends” pet adoption event this weekend, September 16 and 17. During the event, adoption fees will be waived for all pets, and each adoption will come with a spay or neuter service, vaccinations, and a microchip provided.

Not only is the shelter offering all of those free perks, but those who adopt will also get one day of free basic dog training, a voucher that is good for Boofy’s Best for Pets, and a free medium Papa Murphy’s pizza coupon.

“There is a phrase in a song that states “I’ll be there for you – cause you’re there for me, too” and it fits perfectly when you adopt your true best friend. Your best friend will always be there and love you forever.”
