ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – Albuquerque’s Animal Welfare Department is preparing for the influx of kittens and puppies that the spring/summer season brings. The city is hosting a virtual kitten and puppy shower to help provide for the young animals.

The shelter has created an Amazon baby registry to help compile necessary items for the animals. To view the wishlist, search for “Kennel Kompadres” on Amazon’s baby registry.

Items can also be purchased in a store and brought to any of the Welfare Department’s local shelters. Donations are being accepted now through Apr. 30, and donated items can be dropped off at any Animal Welfare Department shelter. For a list of locations, click here.
