Exotic Animal Rescues


Field officers for the Animal Welfare Department are out rescuing animals in Albuquerque all the time.

Some of these calls however, aren’t for your typical cat or dog.

From time to time, they find themselves having to rescue some exotic creatures such as snakes, badgers, etc.

Animal Welfare’s officers go through training classes to handle these calls.

Once the exotic animal is rescued, Animal Welfare works with partners to relocate or adopt the unique animals they rescue.
