Marley and Digby are ready to leap into the weekend! These two both take a little while to warm up to new faces, but are total cuddle bugs once they know you. Both would be most comfortable in a home with teenagers or adults. Marley and Digby became friends at the shelter, and either one could be a good fit for a family with another friendly dog.

Did you know that it is #nationalblackdogday? Some of our staff members decided to spend their day off celebrating with two of our current residents! Harley and Goose had a wonderful trip to the Bosque where they got a nice break from the shelter life. These two are available for adoption and good with other dogs (and Goose has even lived with cats). Either of these cuties would love to meet you and become your very own hiking buddy!
Fill out and adoption interest card and we will reach out to schedule you for an appointment.

Thank you Catopia Cat Cafe for finding homes for two of our special cases! These shy guys just needed someone with patience to give them a chance, and we’re so happy that they found that. Bruce Wayne had been with us since February, and Titan since March waiting for those special people!

It was a great weekend for two of our shyest cats! Both Bruce Wayne and Titan went home with wonderful adopters who understand that it may take them a while to settle in and show how awesome they are. Bernalillo County Animal Care and Resource Center took the time to help these two cuties overcome their difficult pasts so they could adjust to the cafe life. They were still a bit shy (even sometimes hid out together), but very friendly thanks to the socialization the county shelter gave them and their time with humans at Catopia. We love these fellas and will miss them but we couldn’t be happier that they found the perfect homes.

Gretel and her brother Hansel were rescued out of a drainage pipe and brought into the shelter as strays. Gretel was extremely fearful and struggling in the shelter environment so our Behavior Specialist took her in as a foster. Gretel has made significant progress over the last several weeks. She has been living successfully in a home with two large dogs and one small dog. She is housebroken, and crate trained as well. Currently she is learning how to walk on leash. She is getting more confident each day, and is ready to find her forever home. Gretel will do best in a home with other dogs, kids 14 years or older and someone who has experience working with shy or fearful dogs. If you are interested in meeting Gretel or if you would like more information about her, please contact our Behavior Specialist, Britte, at (505)269-1798 [email protected] for more information!

Every adoption is a success for us! However, there are always those adoptions that make us celebrate a little bit more. Last week, we had three of our longest term residents find their matches! From Babu (a shy cat from a hoarding situation who just needed a nice sunbeam to enjoy), to Lilly (who was just a little scared of strangers and met her new people three times before adoption), to Baby Doll (who we could never quite figure out why she hadn’t been snapped up yet) we had a few happy tears as we said goodbye. We are so grateful to our community for adjusting to scheduled adoptions, and hope to continue to find great matches for our pets!

One of our life saving fosters wrote about her current bottle baby recently, and we just had to share!
“Born on the 4th of July! … or thereabouts! But Julian was definitely born in July, and at the tender age of two weeks, he was brought to the Bernalillo County Animal Care and Resource Center in a shoebox. No mama, no siblings, not even any shoes! Just a tiny kitten needing help. Julian is now growing and thriving in our foster home, and he has displayed a healthy appetite after figuring out and latching onto his bottle. Many animals in our shelters could benefit from time in a comfy foster home to give them a chance to grow, heal, or simply chill. If you have room in your heart and home and would like to give fostering a try, please contact the BernCo shelter foster coordinator, Jolene Hewitt, at [email protected]. We need you and promise life will not be dull!”
Remember, fostering saves lives!

Bernalillo County Animal Care Services Advises Citizens to Bring Animals Indoors During Fireworks Displays

During the Fourth of July holiday, more companion animals, especially dogs, are picked up by Bernalillo County and City of Albuquerque animal care officers than at any other time of the year.

“Animals should be secured indoors during Fourth of July events and all animals should have identification in case they do escape,” says Bernalillo County Animal Care Services Director Misha Goodman. “A dog’s hearing is much more acute than humans and the high pitched sounds from fireworks may result in physical or emotional damage to your pet.”

Animals frightened or confused by the fireworks may run away or even jump fences to try to escape the noise.

This year, Bernalillo County and the City of Albuquerque are partnering to bring four spectacular Independence Day fireworks displays, one in every corner of the metro area.

The four fireworks displays will launch from Tom Tenorio Park, Ladera Golf Course, North Domingo Baca Park, and Expo New Mexico. Residents in these areas will have large aerial fireworks displays for the first time, so they are encouraged to maintain their pets indoors for the duration of the shows or whenever fireworks are going off in the area.

To locate a missing animal, follow these suggestions:

1. Check social media sites and file a lost report – Petharbor.com, Nextdoor, Facebook, Adoptapet.com.

2. Check with your local animal shelter’s website or call the City of Albuquerque at 311 or in unincorporated Bernalillo County, outside the city limits, call 505-314-0281.

Please note: Bernalillo County Animal Care and Resource Centers hours of operation are Tuesday-Saturday only. Services are limited during this timeframe.

Pumpkin Pie might very well have had the greatest glow up of 2020!

Pumpkin was found a little before Thanksgiving by our hard working Animal Control Officers. She had recently had puppies and was in a den buried underneath a large cactus. They made sure to get her and her puppies back to the shelter where they could all get the help they needed. It was immediately apparent that Pumpkin had a severe case of demodex mange. We were able to get her puppies weaned and out to one of our rescue partners so that Pumpkin Pie could focus on her own recovery. She has spent the remaining months in one of our amazing foster homes while our vet staff has worked to get her over her mange.
Pumpkin Pie finally was ready to be cleared, and she didn’t even have to come back to the shelter to be adopted! She was adopted by a couple in the neighborhood where she would go on her daily walks, and they were able to follow her progress from the very beginning. Her new family reports that she is doing amazing in their home!
We wouldn’t have been able to do any of it without our Animal Control Officers, Rescue Partners, Veterinary staff and foster program (it takes a village)!

What has three legs, big green eyes, a beautiful calico coat, and is sweet all over?

Why our gorgeous and adoptable Emma Peale of course! Emma was brought to our shelter after we suspected she had been hit by a car. Unfortunately her injuries were severe enough that we were unable to save her leg. Our amazing vet staff gave her the TLC she needed to recover and Emma is now ready for her new family!

Emma would do best in a quiet home who will give her time to adjust. She is a bit shy at first and will take a while to show her true colors. Once she knows you she is sweet as can be!

If you would like to meet Emma, please fill out a Adoption Interest Form and we will reach out to schedule you:

My cat is missing. He is microchipped and neutered. Please let me know if he shows up.
Hi there could I get some background on this dog. I know he has been at two shelters and is HW+. Is he good with children and other dogs? I have an interest from California.

Making her at home ❤️ Thank you 😁
Chance at 9 weeks old
This past weekend was my pup Chance's 1st year with me. Chance was only 9 weeks old when I fell in love with those beautiful blue eyes. According to Bernalillo County Animal Resource, Chance came into the Center with his litter mates that were left in the rain in as box on someone's yard. The homeowner took them to the Center where they quickly went under quarantine. One pup was showing signs of parvovirus. Fortunately, it happened to be negative and they were placed for adoption. He was to have been adopted a week prior to my visit but that didn't flourish so he was back up for adoption. It just so happened that I was making a visit just to see what was available when this little guy took my heart away. From 10 weeks old till now, he's become a great companion.
