ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Bernalillo County Animal Care and Resource Center is overcapacity. With a high volume of pets in the facility, they are looking for communities to help get these pets adopted.
BCACS reminds residents that during January they are offering free adoptions. The facility is open Thursday through Saturday from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. and appointments are required for adoption viewings on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

BCACS is now accepting applications and hiring for multiple positions including animal care technicians who care for the pets at the shelter. Due to being short-handed, staff throughout the facility are currently assisting the best they can to ensure pets are not seeing any decrease in care, activities, and adoptions.
The facility is currently over 200% capacity and staff are working hard to remain open to the public.
