Albuquerque News

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Bernalillo County Animal Care and Resource Center has a vital volunteer program that encourages volunteers to participate at the shelter. Volunteer coordinator Jolene Hewitt talked about the program and says they are in need of volunteers. Some of the volunteer positions are for dog walkers and assistance in the kennels.

For more information about volunteering, email volunteer coordinator Jolene Hewitt at animal-volunteer@bernco.gov. Hewitt also says being a foster family to a cat and dog is another way to volunteer. Most foster placements are two to six weeks and are for nursing mothers and their litters, young kittens, puppies, injured pets or animals needing socialization or time away from the shelter.
