If you want to get a pet, it’s important to remember that they need vaccinations. Animal Welfare says animals need certain vaccinations. A puppy or kitten needs their first shot when they are 6-8 weeks old. Then they will need one every 3-4 weeks until they have three or four vaccines. Once the puppy or kitten is about four months old they will need their rabies vaccine.

If you’re not able to afford the vaccines the city of Albuquerque has a program to help get your pet vaccinated. They can also help you with spaying and neutered which is also very important. For any other information visit their website.
