ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Animal Welfare Department will be extending its Black Friday pet adoption event.

The Black Friday sale offers waived adoption fees for animals. The department states that 40 animals were able to find their forever homes on Friday. Today and tomorrow the event will continue at all shelter locations.

Each adoption will come with a spay or neuter, microchip, vaccinations and a free initial vet visit. Individuals who adopt a dog will also get one free training class.

Those who are unable to adopt can also help out with their donation event, ‘Operation Silent Night Collects Comfort Gifts for Shelter Animals‘. The event ABQ Animal Welfare will be accepting a variety of donations through December 31. Individuals can visit any of their drop-off locations or shelter locations to donate items.
