Board of Commissioners Congratulate Animal Care Services

04/23/2019

At its April 23 administrative meeting the Bernalillo County Board of Commissioners congratulated Animal Care Services on its new facility and wished the department well in its future of protecting the animals of Bernalillo County.

Animal Care Services ensures the health and safety of both people and animals within Bernalillo County. The department assists in reuniting people with their lost pets, in addition to licensing and permitting animals throughout Bernalillo County.

Animal Care Services has been dedicated for many years for the health and safety of animals and people in Bernalillo County. The department’s newest services will bring Bernalillo County to the forefront of animal care and protection.

For years, Animal Care Services has worked diligently from an old county fire station. However, this location was never designed to house animals, so the department contracted with the City of Albuquerque and other shelters to house its rescues.

After many years of hard work, Animal Care Services opened its new Animal Care and Resource Center on Jan. 14, 2019. The new center allows the department to house animals itself and provide many expanded resources to the community.

In its Animal Care and Resource Center, Animal Care Services will host education and training classes, youth camp programs and community volunteer opportunities. As well, foster care and animal adoptions will bring together many wonderful animals with their forever homes.

Bernalillo County would also like to remind the community that April 30 is National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day, so come down and maybe find a furry forever friend.
